Welcome (Back) to Traditional Foods!

What if butter and other “banished” foods like eggs, cream, and bacon had the inherent potential to restore our health and well-being—and that of future generations? It’s a pretty good question, isn’t it?

Traditional foods are the real, whole, unprocessed ingredients of our ancestors’ kitchens. These simple foods nourished us for centuries, before modern food processing turned our health upside down. Their value is once again gaining recognition.

Traditional foods include:

Grass-fed Meats and Wild-caught Seafood

Organic, Farm Fresh Produce

Pastured, Whole, and Raw Dairy

Healthy Saturated Fats and Unrefined Oils

Soaked and/or Sprouted Grains, Nuts, Seeds, and Beans

Fermented Vegetables and Cultured Condiments

Unrefined Sweeteners

Back to Butter explores these topics and more. Beautifully photographed and divided into two parts, Part I teaches you how to stock a traditional foods pantry and offers step-by-step guidance on the techniques and preparation methods practiced in traditional foods—including sprouting, soaking, and fermenting. Part II showcases more than 75 mouthwatering recipes, from main meals to side dishes, desserts, and more, including:

Cultured Cream Cheese Olive Dip

Red Rice Salad with Cumin Dressing

Millet Salmon Cakes with Creamy Dipping Sauce

Meatballs and Mushroom Gravy

Caramelized Beets with Fresh Chives

Fresh Corn Pudding

Red Cabbage Kraut with Fresh Dill

Sourdough Bread Pudding with Raisin

Crispy Peach Cobbler

Learn just how nourishing and delicious it can be to revisit the wisdom of our ancestors and return Back to Butter.
