Sunrise Pastures Update
13 December 2009
The people to get even with are those who have helped you.
FLEECES - the big bag of black Shetland lambs wool is sold, however I'm still skirting on the final few of 20 individual white lamb fleeces. If you have any interest in some or all of those, please ask for photos or samples and i'll be glad to send them on. Normally $12/lb, I will offer a bulk discount for 20 lbs or more.
SOCKS - the socks are selling fast! Especially the larger sizes. Remember, it takes about 8 months between the time we send off our wool to have knitted and the time we receive the finished socks. Order soon if you are interested. We are especially interested in knowing about any sock knitters located in the United States. If you can help us, we'd be greatly appreciative. Our friends in Canada do a wonderful job, but the shipping up and back has become cost prohibitive. We will have to raise our prices on the next batch.
20th-25th of December - Jessica, Dallas, and I will be gone. No orders can be taken or shipped during that time. Thank you!
Warrenton area folks - young Grant Cordell is offering firewood for sale; contact him at 636-248-6340. (this is his dad's mobile)
Egg Nog is available now for a short while, but here's a recipe you can whip up yourself anytime of the year and avoid the HFCS (high fructose corn syrup), gelatin, natural and artificial flavours (whatever those are). But, yeah, it's still got sugar. This can be made with honey, but the flavor is different. (A friend suggested Agave Nectar) I'm also thinking of trying to add a teaspoon of whey as a preservative. Whey is a milk derivative and can be collected at home.
1 quart real milk
4 farm-fresh egg yolks
1/3 cup sugar or 1/4 cup honey
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
Heat milk to 160 degrees F. Add one-cup hot milk to egg yolks, and then blend into the remaining milk. Add sugar (or honey), spices, vanilla and reheat to 160 degrees F. With no preservatives added, plan to use this holiday drink within 24 hours. Keep refrigerated.

She is like the merchant ships, she brings her food from afar. She also rises while it is yet night, and provides food for her household, ....She watches over the ways of her household, and does not eat the bread of idleness.
