We believe that healthy choices start with education, so this week we're partnering with FoodCorps to promote a culture of health in schools across the nation.

Hands-On Learning:
Students grow, cook, and taste new foods, which builds their skills and changes food preferences.

Healthy School Meals:
The cafeteria experience steers students towards the healthiest options and gets them excited to try new healthy foods.

Schoolwide Culture of Health:
As a whole, the school community and environmentโ€”from hallways to classrooms to cafeteria to groundsโ€”celebrates healthy food.

We encourage you to support FoodCorps by donating on #GivingTuesday. Every dollar you give on November 28th will be matched by a generous donor! #Foodcorps #cultures4health #culturedfood ๐Ÿ…๐Ÿ†๐ŸŒฝ

Buttermilk-Soaked Pumpkin Scones

Lightly sweetened and studded with spice and #pumpkin puree, these #scones are perfect for fall. Soaking them in #buttermilk gives them a nutritional boost by breaking down the harder-to-digest grains before baking.

INGREDIENTS: - 2-1/2 cups whole wheat flour - 6 Tbsp. butter, cut into small pieces - 1/3 cup buttermilk - 2/3 cup pumpkin puree - 1/2 tsp. salt - 1/3 cup coconut sugar or granulated sweetener of choice - 2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice - 1 Tbsp. baking powder


1. Cut butter into flour. Mix in buttermilk and pumpkin puree, kneading just enough to moisten the dry ingredients. Cover and leave in a warm place for 12-24 hours.

2. When ready to bake, preheat oven to 425ยฐF. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.

3. Combine the salt, coconut sugar, pumpkin pie spice, and baking powder in a small bowl with a fork. Sprinkle mixture over the soaked dough and knead for just a minute over a floured surface.

4. Pat the dough out into a 1-inch thick circle. Cut into 8 triangles (like a pizza) and place on parchment-lined cookie sheet.

5. Bake in preheated oven for 10-15 minutes.

Lacto-Fermented Dilly Beans:

Green beans are transformed into a tangy, crunchy, flavorful snack or side dish when they are made into dilly beans.

Instead of the more common vinegar preservation, lacto-fermenting produces lactic acid which not only gives dilly beans their ubiquitous tang, but also preserves them without canning so that they will keep in cold storage for months with all their enzymes and vitamins intact.

- 2 quarts water
- 4-6 Tbsp. sea salt
- 1 pound young green beans, trimmed
- 2 Tbsp. red pepper flakes, or to taste
- 4 garlic cloves, peeled and smashed
- 1 tsp. black peppercorns
- 2 large handfuls of dill (flowering heads preferred, but leaves work well too)

1. Dissolve sea salt in water to make a brine. Set aside.

2. Divide the red pepper flakes, garlic cloves, peppercorns, and dill between 2 quart-size glass jars.

3. Place the green beans on top of the seasonings, straight up if they are long and thin or sideways if thicker and cut into chunks. Cover with brine solution, leaving 1 inch headspace at the top of jar.

4. Cover the jar with a tight lid, airlock lid, or coffee filter secured with a rubber band.

5. Culture at room temperature (60-70ยฐF is preferred) until desired flavor and texture are achieved. If using a tight lid, burp daily to release excess pressure.

6. Once the beans are finished, put a tight lid on the jar and move to cold storage.

#Lacto-fermentation is a simple process with few ingredients. The way produce is prepared has a big impact on the final results.

It is helpful to consider how the finished product will be consumed when deciding on a preparation method. For example, will the vegetables be served as part of an appetizer tray? Or will they be used as a condiment or slice on a sandwich? Planning ahead makes it more likely the vegetables will be enjoyed.
Learn many different ways to prepare vegetables for fermentation. Try a variety of methods to discover your favorite. You'll always have a quick addition to any meal.

Hard kefir Cheese

Kefir is such a versatile #cultured food, it can be used to make a variety of other cultured dairy products. Making #kefircheese is a good way to use up excess kefir or kefir that has over-cultured and separated.

Save the #whey from the draining steps and check out the many uses for whey strained from the #kefir.

Cotton Bag or tight-weave cloth

Finished Milk Kefir

1. Pour the milk kefir into the cheesecloth, cotton bag or tight cloth.

2. Hang above a bowl or jar and drain off whey for 12-24 hours. One the kefir has stopped dripping, wrap the cheese in the cheese cloth or towel and place it in a colander.

3. Set a plate on top of the cheese and weigh the cheese down using canned foods or something similarly heavy. Start with a minimal amount of weight and continue to increase the weight every few hours until the dripping stops.

4. Hard kefir cheese is generally crumbly and can be grated like mizithra or similar style cheeses.

Home #cheesemaking requires learning a few new techniques in the kitchen, even if you are an experienced cook. Some ingredients called for in #cheeserecipes should be added to the milk using specific methods and at specific points in the process.
