What is the matter with the FDA?
We’ve been drinking raw milk and eating raw milk cheese for years. We love it and it’s been very good for our health. I make kefir out of raw milk and I’ve made cheese on occasion as well. Thousands of people in my state drink raw milk legally and we are thriving, healthy and not getting sick. There are many other states where it’s legal as well, so what is going on?
It seems like Big Ag, and the large milk companies, are getting threatened by all the people who are clamoring for REAL FOOD. And it also seems like the FDA is more invested in protecting big Ag, then they are in protecting us. They are supposed to work for us, the American people!
We are tired of over processed junk and want to feed our families real food, from real farmers. The FDA is fine with allowing us to eat genetically modified food – food that’s not been proven safe – and won’t even allow us labeling. They’re fine with High Fructose Corn Syrup (soon to possibly be called Corn Sugar) and vegetable oils that have been processed using toxic chemicals, and they’re even fine with us eating raw fish. How come we can go eat sushi, raw fish, in every Japanese restaurant in the country but the FDA is cracking down on Raw Milk and Raw Milk products? Do you want to only be able to buy meat that’s been cooked? What right do they have to insert themselves into our food choices like this. Even if you don’t drink raw milk, this issue is important to everyone.
This rustic cake can be sliced and served or toasted before serving. You can serve it with any kind of fruit compote, fresh fruit, ice cream or cream. It was delicious.
To make a simple compote place fruit (I used plums) that have been peeled, pitted and sliced into a stainless steel pan. For 12 plums I used ½ cup water and ½ cup sucanat. Bring to a boil and simmer over low heat, stirring occasionally, for twenty minutes, then cool before serving.
If you don’t have Meyer Lemons around you can substitute regular lemon, orange or even tangerine zest.
