6 cups heavy cream

1/2 TSP salt

Drain buttermilk (save for another use or discard), then place butter in a colander and rinse under cold water, squeezing excess buttermilk out, until liquids run clear. Serve fresh on a piece of bread, or wrap butter tightly in plastic wrap or store in an air-tight container and keep refrigerated. Makes about 2 cups.

Drinks

apple cider

Submitted by Melisa Williams-Bailey

 

Ingredients:

8-10 apples

4 TBSP cinnamon or 4 cinnamon sticks

4 TBSP allspice

Xylitol or Stevia to taste

 

Instructions:

Quarter the apples (no need to remove peel or seeds.) In a large stock pot add apples and fill with water--just enough to cover the apples. Add xylitol or stevia if

desired. Wrap the cinnamon and allspice in a doubled up in a cheese cloth and tie. Put this to the apples and water. Boil on high for one hour (uncovered) checking frequently. Turn down heat and let simmer for two hours (covered.) Take off heat and let cool. Remove spices and mash up the apples to a pulp like consistency (a potato masher works well for this.) Once cool pour into a strainer over a large bowl. When most of the juice has drained away, put the remainder of the pulp into a doubled up cheese cloth and squeeze over the bowl until no more juice comes out.

 

At this point you can either restrain the juice with a cheese cloth to get out the little bits of pulp that remain or just leave them in. Store in an airtight container in refrigerator for up to a week or freeze for later use if you like. Reheat in the microwave or on the stove.

desserts

almond butter cookies

Submitted by Kristin Kons

 

Ingredients:

1 organic egg

1 TSP vanilla, almond or maple extract

1⁄4 TSP sea salt, if you use salted almond butter omit the salt

1/3 cup xylitol

25 drops liquid stevia

1 cup almond butter or Sun Butter OR 1⁄2 cup almond butter and 1⁄2 cup Sun Butter

 

Instructions:

Preheat the oven to 350°. Using an electric mixer or food processor, beat the egg, extract (vanilla, almond or maple) salt, stevia and xylitol. After these ingredients are well incorporated add the almond butter and mix well.

 

Form balls, about an inch (1 tablespoon of dough), and place on parchment paper on a cookie sheet. Flatten with a fork to make a crisscross design. These cookies will be small. Bake for 10-12 minutes.

 

This is the most important part – take the cookies out of the oven and do not touch them. They will fall apart. Let them cool completely and then transfer to an airtight container and store in the refrigerator. This makes them more chewy.

 

These will keep for about a week, if they last that long! You can also make a double batch and freeze them, so you always have a sweet treat on hand.

 

NOTES: For a Nut-Free option use Sun Butter (sunflower seed butter) Different brands of almond butter affect the consistency of the cookie. Some brands make the cookie chewier and other brands sometimes make the cookies more crumbly. Try different brands if you don’t like the consistency the first time.

tapioca pudding

Submitted by Elaine Elaine from Author Brenda Bennett
 

Ingredients:
2 cups water
3 TBSP small pearl tapioca
2/3 cup coconut milk
1/8 TSP salt
1/4 TSP vanilla liquid stevia


Instructions:
In a saucepan, bring water to a boil. Whisk in tapioca pearls and continue to stir frequently for 17 minutes. Reduce heat to a low simmer. Whisk in milk, salt, and stevia and continue to stir frequently for another 10 minutes. Pour into serving bowls and refrigerate covered until chilled. Makes 1 1/4 cups total.

 

Update: I made several batches of this great stuff. Totally satisfies the sweet tooth. I used half as much liquid stevia and it was fine. The second batch, add 1/8 tsp of cinnamon, the third batch, add 1/8 tsp of cacao powder. Whip up cream for the top.

coconut truffles

Submitted by Dawn Ryan Strohm from paIeoIeap.com

 

Ingredients for the base:

1 can coconut milk, full-fat

2 eggs or 4 egg yolks (yolks alone will give even more richness)

Seeds from 2 fresh vanilla beans or 4 TBSP real vanilla extract

 

Possible flavoring options:

1/2 cup of your favorite berries (chopped or blended to a puree)

1/2 cup coconut flakes

1/4 cup finely chopped mint

1/4 cup chopped nuts

Lemon, lime or orange zest

 

Instructions:                         

Boil some water in a pot and reduce to a simmer. Place a heatproof bowl over to create a double boiler and pour the coconut milk in it. Put vanilla seeds or vanilla extract with the coconut milk and heat until hot, but make sure it doesn’t come to a boil. If using flavorings, you can add them now. Whisk the eggs or yolks in a separate bowl. Temper the eggs by adding one ladleful of the now hot coconut milk while whisking quite vigorously to slowly bring the temperature up without cooking the eggs. Add two or three more ladleful's of the coconut milk mixture and incorporate them to the eggs while whisking continuously.

 

Pour the tempered eggs into the double boiler and continue whisking. Whisk for a couple of minutes non-stop to form a thick custard. Make sure it doesn’t get too hot and the simmering water doesn’t touch the mixture. Once the custard is ready, remove from the heat source and let it cool on the counter or in the refrigerator. You can add any other flavoring you want to use once the custard is cold enough to comfortably put a finger in it.

 

Let it cool even more in the refrigerator before freezing it.

Put in your ice cream maker and follow its instructions or put in a baking dish in the freezer and stir vigorously every 30 minutes for about 2 to 3 hours until it’s set.

Take it out of the freezer for about 10 minutes before enjoying so it softens a bit. Serve with added coconut milk, berries, mint, coconut flakes or any other flavoring you might like that is Phase One friendly.

Using a spatula transfer cookies to baking sheet. Roll out scraps to shape more cookies. Bake cookies for about 13 to 15 minutes until light golden brown. Cool completely before frosting.
