Prebiotics & Probiotics | Pantry Pick

What the heck are those? So I planted some perennials in some pots outside last year. They died. Apparently when you pot a perennial, most of which have complex root systems, you have to replenish what it’s taken from the soil. You have to fertilize it or the dirt will be void of anything good…

Ghee | Pantry Pick

What the heck is that? Ghee, which by the way is pronounced like “gee” & not the letter “G” – is clarified butter. Don’t ask me how long it took me to figure out how to say it…. Anyways, you simmer butter, the water boils out & then you strain it through a cheese cloth. You keep…
