2017 Paleo F(x) Review

Paleo f(x)™ 2017 once again ROCKED!   Our family is still, for the most part, in "divide & conquer" mode. Now that we've added 150 broilers, 40 laying hens, 11 pigs and 12 cows to the family with our farming adventures through Mayfield Pastures, there was...

Spaghetti Squash Fritters from Weeknight Paleo

Paleo Substitutions–What works and what does not

Tap tap tap…testing, 1, 2, 3…is this thing on? Wait a minute, we have a blog? And it’s helpful to actually write on it sometimes? Shut the front door! Now if only my memory could serve me better to help me remember what this blogging thing is, and how I do it. I’m...

For those that have been keeping up with us for the last month, you know that the Paleo Comfort Foods clan has been apart. I've been living in an efficiency apartment in Atlanta thanks to the kindness of a friend. Julie and the kids were fortunate enough to head about...

Oxtails and Kettlebells

This has been another fun week in the trenches of bachelorhood. I've had a very interesting opportunity this past week to course correct on some of my previous opinions about food and taking an "any port in a storm" approach to fuel. In addition to...

Let's talk hard boiled eggs, since many folks might be doing some dyeing this weekend (and please check out that awesome post from Sustainable Dish - Diana Rodgers, RD on some natural dye choices).
*
We HIGHLY suggest doing the steam method to cook your eggs. We use our Instant Pot with eggs from our own hens (eggs we cooked today were about 7 days old), and I've never had such easy-to-peel eggs (note: when I tried eggs that were just laid that day, they were a real bugger to peel. A little age does make the eggs more peel-able). Evidently, steaming is the best way to make your eggs easy to peel.
*
Here's our #instantpot method:
*
1. Place 1 cup of cold water into the pot.
2. Place the trivet that came with the IP or a steamer basket of sorts into the pot.
3. Put as many large eggs (that fit in a single layer) onto the trivet (for us it was 12 or 13).
4. Place the lid onto the IP, and make sure the valve is set to pressure.
5. Adjust the pressure to low pressure and time to anywhere from 5 to 8 minutes (depends on how well done you like your yolks).
6. When the time is up, use the quick pressure release method (open the valve to venting). When fully depressurized, use some tongs to remove the eggs and place them in an ice water bath until completely cool.
7. Refrigerate until ready to dye or make some deviled eggs (that's our next post)!

Happy Good Friday/Easter Weekend to all those who observe!

See the very thick, taller, lush grass? That's what happens when you have chickens on that piece of land for 24 hours. You can actually see the square marks of exactly where the chicken tractors were this past fall.
