Homemade graham crackers Mystic Supplies

As you know I have been on this massive make my own quest. I have had my eyes opened to the horrors of the food industry and as we face food shortages and inflation I decided I needed to learn to make as many things myself as possible. 

sour cream

I love Cheesecake! Plain and pumpkin are my favorites and I decided to make one with things I make from scratch. So I made sour cream which is actually really easy. Sour cream is just plain yogurt with the whey removed. So you can start by making your own yoghurt or purchasing a container from the grocery (organic of course) and you empty the contents into a strainer lined with cheesecloth. Place the strainer over a bowl and put it in the refrigerator over night. In the morning you will have cream cheese in the cheesecloth and whey in the bowl. Don't throw out the whey! You can use the whey for other things. I like to use whey in my bread in place of the water for a protein boost and its a better tasting bread!  You can find the entire instructions for making cream cheese at Marys Nest. This woman is amazing and teaches the old school methods of cooking and preserving.

The other thing you will need is graham crackers and you can make these yourself too! I used this recipe from King Arthur Baking Company  and I love it. I make them a lot for recipes and for nibbling on with a nice hot cup of tea.

Cheesecake In the end you have this amazing cheese cake and a lot of pride in the fact that you made everything yourself! This one cracked a bit on the top but it was amazing to eat and super rich! We ate a couple pieces over that week and the rest I sliced and wrapped and put in the freezer for long term storage. Once defrosted it is just as good as fresh made!  

There are a lot of steps to this and it might seem a little overwhelming and like a long process but you do it in stages and it isn't too terrible and there is no better feeling when you are enjoying that cheese cake then knowing you made every ingredient yourself and that you are eating and feeding your family in a clean (no preservatives) way!

Making brown sugar is easy, more healthy and believe it or not, making it at home it lasts longer! I used to have to run to the store and buy brown sugar when I decided I wanted to make something that required it. I would put the remaining brown sugar in a jar with a sealed lid and when I would go to get it, it would be a solid rock! Really annoying because then I was off to the store to buy more brown sugar!
