• HOMEMADE SOURDOUGH

    Homemade Sourdough is the ultimate guide to creating your own sourdough bread. Learn sourdough formulas and recipes and follow along as the author explains the science behind sourdough and provides a guide to the world of starters, wild yeasts, proofing, pre-ferments and motherdough.

    Homemade Sourdough provides dozens of recipes, not just for bread but for other baked goods, from muffins to pizza crust to chocolate cake. Sourdough is especially attractive to anyone who is aiming for a sustainable, self-sufficient lifestyle and also those who want the health benefits of bread made through fermentation. Sourdough rises through the action of lactic acid, so it doesn't require store-bought yeast (but the sourdough starter method works beautifully with either commercial yeast or wild yeast).

    For those interested in lowering their intake of gluten, sourdough preparations can produce lively, tasty loaves with lower amounts of gluten than other methods.

    There is no better way to embrace heritage flavors and time-tested bread-baking techniques than with sourdough. Foodies, farmers, DIYers, and locavores will want to devour this book.

  • HOMESTEADING FROM SCRATCH

    Homesteading from Scratch is for people who want to do things differently: the type of people who want to eat real food, grow herbs, make cheese, raise baby animals, hunt mushrooms, pick blackberries, can jelly, ferment kraut, farm organically, connect to nature, live intentionally, and more.

    Guiding readers from desire to full-blown off-the-grid living (and everything in between), this book covers farming, animal husbandry, food preparation, homeschooling, fiber arts, and even marketing. It provides inspiration from homesteaders who have made a go of it with operations large and small, and outlining their successes and failures. The book helps to democratize the homesteading movement, by providing “ins” for nearly every level of dedication, from the container gardener to full-time farmer. It provides the knowledge necessary to discover homesteading as a movement and as a lifestyle.

    Inspired by From Scratch Magazine, an online publication devoted to homesteading and intentional living, this book provides readers with continued support and community for information and resources online. Homesteading from Scratch serves as a reference, as well as a cheerleader, for those who want a bit more control and responsibility over where their food comes from, what they consume, and how they live their lives.

  • HOPPY TUMMY BITTERS

    Hoppy Tummy Bitters features a floral hops flavor with cinnamon and birch accents. A savory element is added by the fact that it is infused in apple cider vinegar. Bitters are used to help balance the digestive system.

    Description
    Most traditional bitters contain herbs that encourage contractions, making them unsafe for pregnant women. By contrast, we are proud to say this formula is uniquely pregnancy safe. You will enjoy it whether or not you are pregnant, but we’re excited to offer an option for good digestion if you are.

    What Are Bitters?
    Bitters can help you balance your digestive system+. Traditionally, you would use them to increase the absorption of nutrients during digestion, but you can also use them to curb your sweet tooth. The bitter flavor encourages your gall bladder, liver, and stomach to produce appropriate levels of digestive juices. Sadly, the American diet is severely lacking in the bitter taste that your body needs to maintain a properly toned digestive system. This leads to a lack of assimilation, acid indigestion, reflux, constipation, and much more.

    How to Use
    Put 15 drops of Hoppy Tummy Bitters on the top of your tongue 15 minutes before each meal.

    Ingredients:
    Apple cider vinegar*, hops (Humulus lupulus)*, dandelion (Taraxacum officinale)*, birch (Betula spp.)W, gentian (Gentiana lutea)*, orange peel (Citrus sinensis)*, and cinnamon (Cinnamomum spp.)*. 2 ounces. [*Organic, W Wildcrafted]

  • HOUSING RECLAIMED

    Housing is a fundamental human right. For most of human history, our homes were built by hand from whatever local materials were available. However, since the Industrial Revolution, most housing has become little more than quickly constructed, mass-produced, uniform boxes. At the same time, the invention and standardization of the 30-year mortgage and our ever-increasing reliance on credit has come to mean that most of us never own our homes outright.

    Housing Reclaimed is a call to arms for nonconventional home builders. It examines how technological advances, design evolution and resourceful, out-of-the-box thinking about materials and efficiency can help us meet the challenge of building affordable, environmentally friendly, beautiful and unique homes. Focusing on the use of salvaged and reclaimed materials, this inspirational volume is packed with case studies of innovative projects including:

    • Phoenix Commotion — working together toward low-income home ownership through sweat equity and 100% recycled materials
    • HabeRae — revitalizing neighborhoods by creating urban infill using modern technology and sustainable and reclaimed materials
    • Builders of Hope — rescuing and rehabilitating whole houses slated for demolition

    These projects and others like them demonstrate that building one's own home does not have to be an unattainable dream. This beautifully illustrated guide is a must read for anyone interested in creating quality zero- or low-debt housing, reducing landfill waste and creating stronger communities.

    About the author
    Jessica Kellner is editor-in-chief of Mother Earth Living magazine (www.motherearthliving.com) and a passionate advocate of using architectural salvage to create aesthetically beautiful, low-cost housing.

  • HOW NOT TO BE EATEN

    CLEARANCE $18.63

    All animals must eat. But who eats who, and why, or why not? Because insects outnumber and collectively outweigh all other animals combined, they comprise the largest amount of animal food available for potential consumption. How do they avoid being eaten? From masterful disguises to physical and chemical lures and traps, predatory insects have devised ingenious and bizarre methods of finding food. Equally ingenious are the means of hiding, mimicry, escape, and defense waged by prospective prey in order to stay alive. This absorbing book demonstrates that the relationship between the eaten and the eater is a central—perhaps the central—aspect of what goes on in the community of organisms. By explaining the many ways in which insects avoid becoming a meal for a predator, and the ways in which predators evade their defensive strategies, Gilbert Waldbauer conveys an essential understanding of the unrelenting coevolutionary forces at work in the world around us.
