Nuggets Of Wealth For Life and Health – Fermented Garlic, Infused in Honey🍯

-And He said to me, Son of man, eat this scroll that I give you and fill your stomach with it. Then I ate it, and it was as sweet as honey in my mouth (Ezekiel 3:3)


Hey Neighbor!

Your Health Must Matter Most To You!!

It’s cold and flu season, so now is the time to prepare your home remedies and keep them on hand, just in case!!

My #1 staple to survive the winter is a fermented garlic infused in honey!! 😋

Here are your ingredients:
Fresh Garlic and Raw/Local Honey

And that’s it!!

It’s so easy to make; just smash your garlic cloves with a large knife and remove the peels.

Toss those smashed individual cloves into your mason jar, and pour enough honey over them to cover everything.

Stir it well and seal your jar tightly!!

Instead of shaking the contents, I find that it’s much easier to invert my well sealed jar several times throughout the day, so that everything continues to mix and integrate.

You will need to burp your jar daily, because things are going to get bubbly, as the garlic ferments and feeds on the natural sugars in the honey!!

You can keep your container in a cool dark place, after one week, where it can fully ferment for up to 30 days; but if you’re like me, you’re going to be in this jar nonstop, after 7 days!!

I put garlic in nearly everything, anyway, so I am definitely a garlic lover, but even I can’t eat it straight…it’s just too poweful!!

But after a week, this stuff tastes great and it makes the honey taste better than it did before…and of course the added benefits to this stuff is that it is great for the gut, it’s anti-viral, anti-bacterial, and also anti-inflammatory!!

It doesn’t get any better than this!!

You will be able to eat the cloves, without pain and suffering…and you can add the honey to your hot tea, steel cut oatmeal, and/or add it to your homemade salad dressing!!

However you decide to use your ferment, each time you indulge, you will be boosting your immunity and warding off the effects of cold and flu season!!

Enjoy!!

Trivia Tuesday- Name That Prophet/Name That Wife!!

-Now a day before Saul came, the Lord had revealed to Samuel in his ear, Tomorrow about this time I will send you a man from the land of Benjamin, and you shall anoint him to be leader over My people Israel….(1Samuel 9:15)

Hey Neighbor!


In the lead scripture above, we see where The Lord forewarned Samuel, the Prophet, of the coming of a man, who would soon become the first anointed king of Israel.

Saul had come seeking the prophet/seer, out of concern for his father (Kish’s) lost donkeys.

We learn that Samuel was pleased to share this good news, and good fortune with Saul, as he poured the anointing oil over his head, and as he kissed Saul, the ‘anointed’ king.

Now much later in Israel, a woman would also be found seeking The Lord’s prophet, in Israel.

This woman was the wife of an ‘anointed’ king, who was dressed in such a way, as to disguise her identify.

This woman had come, seeking the prophet, as to learn the fate of her very sick son.

Now although she was dressed ‘incognito,’ this prophet, who was blind, identified the woman as the king’s wife, as soon as he heard her footsteps!!

This was because the Lord had forewarned the prophet of this woman’s upcoming arrival into Shiloh.

Now unfortunately the prophet was charged with some very burdensome news for the king’s wife; and thus, the man of God went on to prophesy the immediate death of the woman’s child, upon her return to her own city!!
********************************************

Who was this (blind) Prophet, that was charged with such heavy news??

And who was this woman/wife, who had come to the man of God, dressed ‘incognito?’

Solution Saturday Answer: Mary- Sister to Martha and Lazarus!!

-Now while they were on their way, it occurred that Jesus entered a certain village, and a woman named Martha received and welcomed Him into her house. And she had a sister named Mary, who seated herself at the Lord“s feet and was listening to His teaching (Luke 10:38)

Hey Neighbor!

This past week, our CareBibleStudy Class searched through the Bible for Relatives; We were looking for the Name of the Father, who rebuilt Jericho, and we also found the names of his two sons who died, due to Joshua’s curse….That was Tuesday’s trivia!!

On Thursday, I attended a funeral, in support of a friend; therefore I did not post for Trivia Thursday.

Now Sunday’s Super-Faith Riddle was a little tough, but we did finally decided that this super-faith-full female was: Mary, Martha and Lazarus’ sister.

-This Mary was the one who anointed the Lord with perfume and wiped His feet with her hair. It was her brother Lazarus who was [now] sick (John 11:2)

– When Mary came to the place where Jesus was and saw Him, she dropped down at His feet, saying to Him, Lord, if You had been here, my brother would not have died (John 11:32)

– Then took Mary a pound of ointment of spikenard, very costly, and anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped his feet with her hair: and the house was filled with the odour of the ointment. (John 12:3)

Now, here is Sunday’s Riddle (10/23) once again, just in case you missed out!!

*********************************************

She was postured like Saul with Gamaliel, but it wasn’t the law that he taught.
She would not be alarmed by the others in class, found to be heavily burdened and distraught
The yoke she had chosen, was easily borne, and its’ weight was extremely light
Like a moth to a flame, she was drawn to her friend, for his aura was intensely bright
She would not be separated from her master, even when others chastised her and did chide
For he was her vine, and as the teacher’s branch, she had learned to remain and abide.
She was found intensely focused, not idle; and in front of the class she found rest
She raise her hand, and out came, ‘Jesus!!’ The Perfect answer to ace EVERY test!!

*******************************************

Now, there are several Mary’s mentioned in the Bible, i.e. Mary, the mother of Jesus, Mary, the wife of Cleophas, and also Mary Magdalene.

Mary Magdalene was a very good answer for this riddle, guessed by both Anneta and Wenda, but we were specifically looking for Mary, the Sister; who we can undoubtedly find at Jesus’ feet, whenever she is mentioned in the Bible!!

Super-Faith Sunday Riddle-Who Was She??

Hey Neighbor!

It’s Sunday, October 30th, and Here is Your Super-faith-full female of the week!!

Let’s Hope You Can Solve My Riddle??

*******************************************

She heard a Word from The Lord, He was saying, ‘Sustain.’
Though her own provision was nil, cause the Lord withheld rain
She was not a woman of strength, she was wearied and weak
Yet she gave what she had, to attend to the meek
God had sent his servant, asking her to provide
When she’d given up hope, she presumed they would die
How could God say ‘sustain,’ with just a handful of meal
Yet He showed himself mighty through this man from Israel
Though death did arrive, and long was the drought
God’s provision was continuous, and she never ran out.

Who Was She??

How To Be A ‘Stalker’ for God!!

Hey Neighbor!

Last Friday, I posted a story about my friend Gail, who, many moons ago, encouraged me to introduce more Trivia into my blog.

Now Gail and I worked together in St. Louis and we had become great friends, but after I separated from that company, somehow she and I lost contact.

The Good News is that Gail sought me out until she found me, and here is that story!!

It’s Just Another Oldie for Your Friday!!

Enjoy🤩

****************************************

Ok, So I was checking my email on a Tuesday morning, when I saw a message that read:

‘Looking for you.’

Now I certainly recognized the name…in fact, her name was very familiar to me because Gail and I had worked together, downtown St. Louis.

We were such good friends, that the people on the job thought I smoked cigarettes, because whenever it was time for Gail to go on her cigarette break, I was right there, in the midst of the smoke!! Lol

Now, Gail was so determined to locate me, that she had recently sent a letter to my house, probably a couple of months prior…just like a real stalker, huh??

The letter read: I hope this letter finds you well. I don’t know how we lost contact, but here is my number. Give me a call.

I was so glad to receive Gail’s letter, because I ‘loved me some’ Gail!!….but it had been a long night for me, so I set the letter on my nightstand and decided I would call her on the weekend, when she wasn’t working…so we could really talk.

So ‘busily, being busy,’….That’s how I get……I forgot!!

Then, later in that month, I decided that there was too much clutter on my nightstand, so I went through everything and rediscovered the letter.

Now that was on a weekday morning, in the afternoon and I knew she would probably be at work, so once again, I told myself, “Wait until the weekend.”

Now this time, my husband was ‘busily being busy,’ when he removed my important mail from the kitchen table…and of course, whenever you ask him if he remembers where he moved something, his standard answer is “I didn’t see it!!”

Wow!!

So now I’m thinking…What do I do Now??…..I didn’t know what to do…and most likely, hubby threw the letter away, unintentionally, even though he “never saw it.” Lol

So I thought, “I’m stuck!!”

Now, Fast Forward back to our Tuesday….So I’m checking my email and I click to open her message, where Gail goes on to say how she had been searching high and low, to find me.

Then, She simply left her phone number, asking me to give her a call…Sooooo, this time…I called her right away. Yay!!

So, Gail and I had a great time catching up…and we’ve been staying in communication by phone and text. We’ve tentatively planned to get together and I’m so excited!!

She’s been enjoying the blog…and she recently sent me a text requesting more Bible Trivia. Wow…a demanding stalker too, huh??

So you may be wondering where I’m going with this….In our modern day, hi- tech society of cell phones, tablets, computers, Facebook, Twitter, blogs, and also U.S Mail!! We really don’t have an excuse for failing to communicate with our friends and loved ones.

Sure…. I know All of us have had an experience where you’ve gone into the wireless store to buy a new phone and have lost all your contacts…But we don’t have to get stuck there!!

God dropped my name into Gail’s Spirit….Hallelujah!!

My Name was on the Mind of God!

Wow!!

Let me Just think about that for a moment…

…And without delay, she began searching for me and left no stone, unturned, till she found me!!

God was planning a ‘Divine Set-up.’

Just like the meeting of Samuel and Saul…Saul didn’t know Samuel when he went looking for him..and Samuel didn’t know Saul from Adam either…lol.

But God knew Saul, and dropped his name into Samuel’s Spirit!

Both Saul and Samuel were walking in obedience to God…right into His Divine Setup…and it was Awesome!!
[Go back and read Saul’s Story on the blog- You’ll find it under, ‘Bible Trivia- Saul’s Search’]

So When God drops a name into your Spirit, walk in obedience and be a “Stalker for God!”….Just Like Gail!!

Seriously though… Maybe God wants to use Your testimony to encourage a lost friend, or Maybe He wants You to pray for -or- with a former co-worker, or just Maybe He wants You to tell someone who has fallen away from Christ: “Jesus Still loves You, and You are not alone!”

What Name has God Dropped into Your Spirit??

Go!!….and Don’t delay!!

Let God Divinely, Set You Up.

As Always….Remember,

God Loves You and So Do I!!

Nuggets Of Wealth For Life and Health – How to Make A Healthy, Probiotic-Rich Soda!!

Hey Neighbor!

Your Health Must Matter Most To You!!

As I was learning how to preserve my vegetable harvest last year, I also learned how to make ‘soda-like’ probiotic-rich beverages, with the use of a ferment starter, called a ‘Ginger Bug.’

So You say: Tam, What the heck is a Ginger Bug??

It’s just fresh ginger, diced, and sweetened with organic cane sugar. It’s the base ingredient that you will need in order to make a homemade ginger ale, ginger beer, or any flavored probiotic rich ‘soda-like’ drink that you prefer!!

And, good news…there is no need to add any artificial carbonation, and there is no alcohol involved in the making of this homemade, fermented soda!!

How to make Your Ginger Bug in just Just Five Easy steps!!

1. Dice up 2 heaping tbsp of your fresh ginger and place this into a clean mason jar. (I prefer to keep the peel on my ginger, but peel it, if you prefer.)
2. Add 2 tbsp of filtered water to your mason jar
3. Add 1 tbsp of pure cane sugar (no artificially bleached beet sugar)
4. Stir well, loosely cover with a coffee filter (to let air in, but keep dust out) and tighten w/a string or rubber band.
5. You will leave this out, in a warm spot, on your countertop afterwards…then repeat these same steps for the next 5-6 days.

Ultimately, your will remove your coffee filter, seal your jar tightly, and then refrigerate!!

And now that your ‘Ginger-bug’ has been fed for 5-6 days, it should appear very fizzy and bubbly.

It will continue to ferment slowly, inside of your refrigerator…and now you’re ready to make soda!!

My favorite flavor is Strawberry/Rosemary!!

1. In a separate (32oz) mason jar, add a sprig of fresh rosemary and also add 1 cup of your fresh or frozen strawberries – slice them and keep the leaves on, if you like!!

2. Add 1/2 cup of sugar

3. Add 1/2 cup of your ginger bug/ferment starter to this mason jar – You can also include some of your ginger bits (from the bug), or not.

4. Now you must ‘Re-feed’ your refrigerated ginger bug with an additional 1/2 cup of filtered water + 1/2 cup of sugar, then stir it and return it to the refrigerator for your next homemade drink.

5. Finally, add filtered or spring water to your 32oz. mason jar, filled with your ingredients. Fill it 3/4 of the way, seal tightly and shake!!

*******************************************

Now I like to let my fermented soda set up, while it’s on top of my refrigerator. That’s so that it can stay nice and warm, while my sugar is dissolving.

It’s very important to keep your ferment in sight, so that you can remember to shake it from time to time, and so that you don’t forget to burp it once/day!!

Why must you burp your ferment??

Well, because your fermented ginger is probiotic-rich, as it eats the additional sugar, it will begin to produce CO2, just like your fermented pickles and tomatoes, so it is very important to burp your jar once every 24 hours- to release that pressure and to avoid 💣💥🌋!!

Here is a picture of my ferment that I neglected to burp on day 3!!

Non-alcoholic Strawberry/Rosemary Fermented Soda 😋

When I finally released the pressure, it gave off several strong whooshes that nearly freaked me out!!

It nearly ran over the top of the jar, just as if I had drooped a soda can, and then attempted to open it immediately afterwards. Wow!! 🤯

Ok!! So obviously, this delicious fermented drink will become very fizzy in 2-3 days, but if you’re overly excited and/or impatient, it will produce a very light fizz within 24 hours and can be chilled or served @ room temperature 😋

I think you will really enjoy this homemade drink, without the alcohol, caffeine, and certainly without the diabetic-inducing high fructose corn syrup found in most of your store bought sodas!!

Again, whether you have fresh ingredients or frozen, go ahead and try this – and try experimenting with other flavors, like blueberry/mint, strawberry/pineapple, blackberry/lavender!!

Let me know how yours turns out, and once again, don’t forget to burp your jar every 24 hours!!

Until Next time, Happy Fermenting!!

Trivia Tuesday – Name That Relative!!

– Then Joshua laid this oath on them, Cursed is the man before the Lord who rises up and rebuilds this city, Jericho. With the loss of his firstborn shall he lay its foundation, and with the loss of his youngest son shall he set up its gates. (Joshua 6:26)

Hey Neighbor!

In the Lead scripture above, we see where God’s Faith-full Servant, Joshua, prophesied a curse upon the family of the man (in the future) who would defiantly venture forth to rebuild the city of Jericho.

This curse was indeed executed upon this man’s relatives, more than 500 years later!!

This father lost his first son, while laying Jericho’s foundation, and he later lost his youngest son while setting up the gates to enclose the city.

Now, who was this exceptionally daring sinner/father, who ventured forth to rebuild this cursed city, in defiance to God’s spoken Word!!

Also, Can You Name this man’s two Sons, (Relatives) both the elder and the youngest, who both lost their lives, while rebuilding the Land of Jericho??
