The red pepper jelly test

Please look at the photo (above) and see for yourself the difference in the substance of the jellies. They are completely different tasting and looking products, which I believe underlines the issue I discussed previously (see Food for Thought).

When we disconnect from nature, and from food, we get a bunch of corporations that pick up the slack in feeding people. It’s what they have been feeding us that concerns me.

We can feed the world without chemicals that destroy soil, wildlife and poison the food when we get back to growing food the way nature does it. Today local is the new organic. It’s about a new connection with nature, and where your food comes from.
