The Nordic Star Homestead

How are you all doing?  Long time since I have posted but wanted to say hello.  If you noticed, we are 'farming' again but on a much smaller scale... SO many things have come along in our life and its crazy!  I am going to be sharing them with you all and hope you enjoy the journey it takes you on.

We have 4 little Jersey cows that we milk by hand, 30 Standard Cochin chickens, 3 horses, 7 barn cats and a few ducks...

We now home school the boys full time - Milk Dud is 11 - yes 11. Big son is 21, married and has a little girl that is 1yr old. Palmer is married and has 3 children...2 boys and 1 girl.. Times have changed so much my friends!!

WOW!!!!! Wow!! WOOOZA! Well folks, it looks like I have annoyed some people about my Homemade cough syrup.. yup.. they are mad. First of all folks, I will apologize for not answering your questions. Second, get over it... I know that sounds a bit cold - but really guys, I have not been on here in YEARS... and its a recipe that is not my own. I shared it with the intent of being helpful - what I shared is all I know.. as in most 'home grown' recipes, its trial and error... People wanted information on dosing. Really? seriously? I am not a dr. nor a pharmacist nor an herbalist - so dosing is not something I will speak on at all. So all I can say is this. Take your own chances on using the cough syrup... just like everything else in life, USE GOOD JUDGEMENT!.

Just call me the chicken canner....

Well, lately I have been dabbeling in the kitchen arts.... this one is the tricky - *cue Jaws music*.... pressure canning. I have to admit I was terriefied at first... I mean it rattles on the stove like its posessed if you dont get the pressure right. BUT, I was not daunted, only cuz my mom and gramma were there holding my hand... we canned potatoes. Pictures will be following this post in a couple days... Today is chicken canning... cut up stew chickens with bones... :) ITS FUN!
