Making Mead and hard ciders

Welcome Creek Road Nation to Episode 42 Making Mead And Ciders of The Creek Road Podcast.

On this weeks Episode We talk about

Making Mead And Hard Ciders, Cold Showers Replacing The Water Heater, The Parting out of Whole Food into Several Products.

Cold Showers and Replacing the water heater

On Demand Hot water is one of the Luxuries we take for granted. In many countries cold showers are a way of life. Heck showers are a luxury and some times water to bath in is a luxury. Many times we loose sight of the fact that we have it pretty good so good we forget that warm water to bath in is not a necessity. But a Luxury. Several things in our every day lives are so common that unless you loose access to them we forget that they just make life more comfortable.

The Parting our of Whole Food into Several Products.

One of the Luxuries we have at our finger tips is Cheep Food. One of the more Disturbing trends I am seeing is the Parting our of foods. Foods that are being Broken down into in some cases there individual chemical components and reconstructed to create cheep food at the cost of allergen sensitivity to them after processing that we don’t see in the whole Food. And Turning former waste products into Foods that are consumed on massive scale.

Making Mead And Hard Ciders.

And We talk about my adventure of making Hard Apple Cider. And Mead In Small Batches. Making Hard Ciders and Meads is and ancient way of life that is very Easy and produces a custom lightly alcoholic drink that is totally your creation. Using Apple Juice from the store. Utilizing the Gallon Jugs the juice Came in makes for an easy and efficient way to produce several different types of hard ciders.

Simple Hard Apple Cider

  1. Gallon of your Choice of Apple Juice { Make Sure there is no preservatives except for ascorbic acid is ok }
  2. Yeast  { a Yeast meant to Make Alcohol is best I used Red Star Montrachet Wine yeast }
  3. Balloon as your air lock.
  4. Pitch your yeast according to package directions. put balloon on in place of cap. wait for Ferment to finish. { About 20 Days } gently poor off your Hard Cider leaving the settled out Yeast in Bottom of Jug Into secondary jug or bottles. at this point you can let it mellow our in the new jug or bottle. it is much better if you let it age in the second jug before you bottle it and drink.

Where I’ve Been

Saving Seeds

There are so many reasons why you and I want to save seeds. From the mundane to the profound. Saving seeds gives you the opportunity to create you own strain or variety of Mum. it lets you share in the Bounty of the surplus our garden gives us in so many new ways. That ripe Juicy tomato that you picked from the tomato plant that sprouted in your compost bed. To the Watermelon that Grew out from under the deck probably planted buy the Games played last 4th of July during the Cook out. And grandma’s mums she so lovingly doted and plants every year.

Why Gun Control Can’t work

“347,000.00” Three Hundred and forty Seven Million. That is the Number of Guns as of 2012 in America.

The Average Gun Owner in America is White, Middle Aged “55” and participates in the Shooting or Hunting Culture.

The average victim of viloant gun crime is Black only 19% likely to keep guns in the home. Whites report 41% keeping guns in the home.

Gun ownership of younger adults with children under 18 living at home as been dropping since 1987.

Product Review Tramontina Cast Iron Enameled Dutch Oven.
Enameled cast iron cookware is not as common in the US. As it is in other parts of the world. Enameling cast iron is a way to protect the cookware from corrosion or chemical processes. Improve the look or decorate the cookware.

Eating Bugs
“According to Grub, online purveyors of freeze-dried insects for culinary purposes, 80% of the world’s nations eat insects as a part of their diet. They can be farmed in a much smaller space than large livestock, and require a substantially lower quantity of water and feed to rear to adult size” Quoted From MSN This is why we should be eating insects

Healthy living: Dealing With Heel Pain

Dealing with Heel Pain. I have heal pain. When it is acting up it keeps me from my walking exercises. It has forced me to leave my 2nd job at Advanced Auto Parts. If you have experienced it you know what I am talking about. When you get up from a resting position it hurts. And getting up during the night or in the morning can be excruciating. This is a condition called “Plantar Fasciitis” In my case once I found a treatment it was easy and immediate relief from the pain.

Gardening Tips: Catching Rain Water

Every year the spring rains come and turn everyone’s yards into muddy messes. Everyone curses the spring rains for the mess they create. I look at them like a shower after a long hard day. Renewed life, the clean smell, the songs of the birds and the twitter of the tree frogs after a spring rain are enough of a comparison to how I feel after a shower to be dismissed. Our grandparents looked at the spring rains as a chance to fill the ponds recharge the wells and top off the cisterns.

The Frugal Secret!

Nanny didn’t waste money but she wasn’t afraid to spend it either. She would spend money on big hams, or that huge turkey. She knew The Frugal Secret!  Nanny was born during the years leading to the great depression. She had seen her fair share of hard times. It showed in how she cooked. She was an old time cook. The classic home maker that can walk into a bare kitchen and perform some kind of grandmother Voodoo that created a dinner from empty refrigerator and bare pantry shelves

SoFrit Chicken Gizzards & Harts in Tomato Pepper sauce

Have I got a treat of a recipe for your crock pot today. Slow cooker Sofrit “Chicken Gizzards & Harts In a Tomato Pepper Sauce”. I went to the Google’s to see what the Italian translation for Chicken Gizzards was and found out that my conglomeration was a recipe. I had never heard of SoFrit. Oh by the way, the Italian translation for chicken gizzards is “Ventriglio Di Pollo”. Olives-N-Okra talk about Sofrit, or chicken gizzards & hearts in hot sauce being and old Italian dish common in Rhode Island. My ingredients are so close that I am calling my dish SoFrit. Instead of Ventriglio Di Pollo or Italian Chicken Gizzards.

18 Century Cooking Lifestyle

18 Century Cooking Lifestyle

I have discovered the most interesting You Tube Channel 18th Century Cooking Jas Townsend and Son. The Premises of the Show is of course 18th Century Foods and How to cook them. Mr. Jon Townsend has and opportunity in television content production. I wish the videos were longer and that says a lot about a production it is easy to make a long video with very little information. But to make the video short and contain all the information he puts into his video takes talent. He wears period clothes and uses period cooking products even to the point where he is in the woods cooking over and open fire. He also has a company that provides for the needs of Historical Reenactors. You can go to The Jas. Townsend and Son Online Catalog and order the items he uses in his YouTube Videos. Continue reading

Spring And The Vernal Equinox

Spring And The Vernal Equinox

Spring And The Vernal Equinox

Today is the First official Day of Spring and the Vernal Equinox according to the almanac it happens at 6:45 pm EST when the sun crosses over the celestial equator. If you are a weather man spring started March 1st. For me spring started when I opened the door the other evening and heard the Tree Frogs Peeping. About that same time I noticed that the Trees were just starting get the red Buds. The red buds are a sure sign of days getting longer. And within a few days the Red Buds Burst and what was just a hint of red is now very noticeable. Soon there will be small leaves. There is the old timers saying I heard my Grandpa say every year. Got to get the potatoes into the ground by Saint Patrick’s Day. But the Old Indian Wisdom says Plant the potato when the buds on the trees are the size of a squirrel’s ear. Well that would be about now. The Indians cultivated a lot of crops and use the signs of the season to do it by. Continue reading

Friday The 13th and Black Cats

Friday The 13th

Friday The 13th and Black Cats

As many of you know Today is Friday the 13th personally it is a good day for me. several years ago I decided that I would no longer let the superstition of a date direct my conclusions about a day passed, present or future.

The day that I came to this conclusion was a normal work day. I had been busy delivering pizza. I worked for a local Domino’s pizza. Friday nights were always busy in the Gallipolis Ohio Store. This was back when Domino’s had the 30 minute or 3 dollars off your order guarantee. And if you were late and had to pay out the 3 dollars it came out of your pocket. Continue reading
