Overview

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.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Back to Butter takes us back to school on what we need to know to begin to restore the health of our families. With wisdom, compassion, and expertise, Molly and Sandy inspire us, helping us to navigate the changing landscape of food and health. Keep this book tucked away in your kitchen so you can turn to it, like a good friend, for insight, inspiration, and information." - Robyn O'Brien, author of The Unhealthy Truth and founder of the AllergyKids Foundation

"This book is daring, inviting, and simply offered. Join Molly and Sandy as part of their family and begin a mighty journey." - Arash Jacob, D.O., healer

"Molly and Sandy's recipes are among some of my very favorites. Not only do their recipes work, but they are filled with flavors your whole family will love. With food to nourish the mind, body, and soul, Back to Butter will become a treasured favorite." - Carrie Vitt, author of Deliciously Organic and founder of deliciouslyorganic.net

"It used to be that every great cook knew the importance of using butter and other traditional ingredients. For nearly half a century, however, this was lost. Back to Butter is like a sigh of relief-an old friend has finally returned home." - Joette Calabrese, homeopath, public speaker, and author

"In Back to Butter, authors Molly and Sandy deliver a candid and heartfelt approach to addressing some fundamental questions: What is real food and how should it be prepared? And what are the advantages of nourishing oneself in this manner? The recipes and advice are carefully thought out to reflect the wisdom of our ancestors, with the book's photography further accentuating these important words. This book is a labor of love, both in writing and in living a lifestyle." - Raymond Silkman, D.D.S.

"If there's one thing I wish all my patients knew, it's that healthy eating is one of the most critical, basic things we can do to promote good health, offering both immediate and long-term health benefits. Back to Butter is a rich resource in this regard, packed with wonderful, mouthwatering recipes, beautiful photographs, and pure, unadulterated nourishment." - Greg Merti, M.D.

"I've often wondered how we went so far astray with the simple act of feeding ourselves. Unearthing the path to finding our way back to simple nourishment is like hacking through a forest of odd diets, claims, and products. Back to Butter cuts through the clutter to present a road to sane eating rooted in traditional diets." - Evan Kleiman, chef, author, and radio host of L.A.'s "Good Food"

"I love to cook. And I love fresh, natural ingredients-no processed foods on my table! Finally, a wonderful, beautiful cookbook that helps me put it all together to better understand ingredients and gives me glorious recipes to in which to use them." - Ruth Graham, Christian author and speaker

"For those new to traditional whole foods, there is no better place to start than Back to Butter. Molly Chester and Sandy Schrecengost take the guesswork out of preparing foods key to health and healing, from kefir to pâté. Even those long familiar with the principles of traditional cooking will be delighted and inspired by the recipes in this beautifully illustrated volume." - Sally Fallon Morell, president of The Weston A. Price Foundation

    I am quite the cookbook collector and I have found myself reaching for BACK TO BUTTER more and more as I'm planning our family dinners. I love that it is thoroughly researched and offers you tips and basic preparations to get the most nutrients out of your ingredients. I also really appreciate the focus on the quality of the ingredients and the easy to follow foolproof recipes. So far I have made the nourishing stock which I have been using to cook for us and our 11 month old baby, the Brussels sprouts which were a total hit! So were the shrimp and mango salsa, the coconut beans, meatloaf and plain black beans. I have lost eight pounds of my baby weight and I am not ready to put that weight back on just yet. This helps! I have found every recipe clearly detailed with easy to follow steps, tips and variations and the results delicious for the whole family. But probably what I like the most about this cookbook are the techniques which are different from what I used to do (such as cooking stock for 12 to 24 hours or a different way of soaking beans) because not only are they very well explained and justified (they help make the food more nourishing and easier to digests) but also taste even more delicious. It's a wonderful addition to my cookbook library and I know we'll have many more delicious dinners ahead!

    Back to Butter is a great cookbook by great people

    If you are looking for recipes that use traditional whole foods with a contemporary understanding of nutrition, this is a great book! Butter is back and grains are okay in moderation. The books teaches you how to soak and sprout grains so they can be easily digested. So far, I have found her recipes full of flavor and nourishing - like the Roasted Shrimp Salsa and Multi-Seed Crackers.

    Oh, and Beck wrote the forward... what?
