    Okay, I just come up with this health bomb. :) A real spring recipe me thinks!
    It turned out very delicious and so filling.. great way to get some fat in.

    I do not have any exact measurement (I never have when I make stuff ;)) but this is about what I used;

    Mable sap, fresh and raw, 2 dl
    Pastured butter, raw is best, 1-2 tbsp
    Raw organic coconut oil, 2-3 tbsp
    Organic (raw is best) cocoa powder, 2 tbsp
    a few grains Himalayan / Celtic sea salt

    Those things you can add to taste too;

    Cinnamon
    Curcumin
    Ginger, fresh or ground and dried
    1 egg yolk raw, makes it foamier

    Heat the sap to about 40 degrees C (104 degree F), be careful not to overheat it as it will lose it's healing powers then. Put it all into a mixer, and enjoy!

    Tweak the amount you use of every ingredient, to suite your needs and taste better. You can also use only coconut oil if wanting to avoid dairy.
    The maple sap makes it sweet enough so no sweeter needed, if you want it less sweet you can use birch sap too! It is almost not sweet at all.

    In looking up the butter/egg pudding I found this. Inger you have inspired me to try and tap our maple tree and get some sap. Buckets are already going on the trees around me.
     
  4. Any luck with tapping your own trees? I always wanted to do that!

    A friend of mine in PA taps hers and makes delightful syrup! Very little to show for the effort put in, but so worth it!

    I don't think I have enough maples on my property to make it worth the effort (mainly oaks), but friends in Maine made several gallons as just hobby production one year. I think it’s been dissed as a D-bomb but a gift from nature like that has to be worth it, right?

  8. I'd like to think so!!
     
  9. Looks like all the events near us in the NJ/PA area are in Jan-March! New winter activity :)

    Oooh—maybe it’s a Mito-date? That would be awesome!

    Some of those oxalate ingredients (cocoa powder, cinnamon, curcumin) not agreeing with me right now but appreciate your creativity. and will put it in my recipe box to try when I heal some from the oxalates.

    Wondering if anyone here knows of Sapp Birch Water https://sapplife.co/ Bottle says Original 80% less sugar than coconut water, rich in manganese... product of Ukraine...not my neck of the woods..

    Do our drinks need to be locally sourced?

    Was wondering if Birch water is low deuterium ?Found this notation but I do not understand it...

    "Compared studies of natural and artificial deuterium depleted water

    The biological influence of the deuterium on animals was studied insensitively in the last years. When animal cell cultures were analyzed it turned out an inhibition of the development, due to the reduced deuterium concentration. In the in vivo experiments a decreasing of the number of tumoral cells was pointed out when performing the depleted water treatment. It is obvious that the presence of deuterium in water is necessary for the development, especially for the tumoral cell proliferation. The aim of this work was to establish influence of the natural and artificial deuterium depleted water on the vegetal organisms development. For this purpose, the developmental stages of Lactuca sativa L. growth were followed. The experimental data were compared with the data obtained with distilled water. The birch, wine sap and some fruit juices are considered 'natural depleted' water sources because their deuterium content is smaller in comparison to natural water (D 2 =150 ppm). The effect of artificial deuterium depleted water (29 ppm D 2 ) was analyzed in comparison to three types of wine saps, which also have a reduced deuterium concentration (125-130 ppm D 2 ). If the deuterium depleted water was used, the germination percent and the root and shoot length were higher compared to control in the first stages. In wine sap it had a negative effect on germination and development. After three days the plants were transferred to soil and their development was followed. The foliage area was larger for all of the experimental variants compared to control. The differences were without significance when deuterium depleted water was tested but they were high and very significant in case of wine sap. The experiment pointed out a stimulative effect of the artificial deuterium depleted water. In case of wine sap the effect was negative when the contact was direct, but the growth was stimulated after the stress cessation. The first ontogenetic stages were represented by direct action" https://worldwidescience.org/topicpages/d/deuterium+depleted+water.html
