Spelt and pumpkin seed bread, the best vegan butter, and berry +nashi jam...all made at home, and the berries and nashi pears are from the orchard.


Hello again dear friends...you asked for more recipes so here is a great one...

We have given you an easy and tasty nut milk recipe++CASHEW MILK!, a fabulous New York vegan cheese recipe++SUPER VEGAN CHEESE…and now its the turn of vegan BUTTER🙂 Butter is one of the foods that we can replace with oil based products from stores, but I am not that keen on some of the additions, and its so easy to make at home. Don't try to oil your watch with it though like the Mad Hatter in 'Alice in Wonderland'!

This butter is astonishly quick to make and ingredients are in any good health food shop, or easy to order online. This vegan butter has the consistency of 'butter', the look, the melt and the feel. If you taste it alone on toast there  is slight coconut taste, but once you dollop on the avocado, vegemite, peanut butter, jam or whatever on top it is not noticeable and it's so good...! I made scones with this  butter and they were fabulous…no foto because we scoffed them too quickly…

OK. So... here is the very creative Sue Quinn’s recipe for  BUTTER from her wonderful book 'Easy Vegan'. Sue is an Australian, a journalist, who now lives in England.



makes: about 425g

preparation: 10 minutes

cooking: none, once you have melted the coconut oil.



1 teaspoon soya lecithin granules

150 ml soya milk.

1 Tablespoon organic soya milk powder

1 teaspoon fine sea salt

140ml sunflower oil

1/2 teaspoon xantham gum

2 teaspoons nutritional yeast

200 ml refined coconut oil, melted.

1 pinch turmeric for colouring ( my addition to Sue’s recipe)



Grind the soya lecithin granules very finely in a mortar or spice grinder. Transfer to a food processor ( it’s difficult to make this work in blender) and add all the remaining ingredients except the coconut oil. Blitz until well combined. With the motor running gradually pour in the coconut oil. The mixture will thicken almost immediately. Scrape into an airtight plastic container, or rollup in baking paper and  chill in the fridge. Keeps well, covered, for about a week.

 This butter is versatile enough to use as a like-for-like replacement in most recipes, particularly pastry, cakes and buttercream icing. It also melts nicely on toast. It’s not really suitable for frying. (Soya lecithin granules, are often used as an emulsifying agent).OK... happiness...

Next recipe: Mayonnaise!🙂

Sure, but that radical change was the result of a number of successive refinements in those 25 years. Paradigm Shifts rarely happen suddenly -

Not sure if this applies so much to BK in India.
But in Europe, the BK community certainly looks like a species slowly heading for extinction.

Baba may not have made any major distinction here. After all, early movies did not have much cinematography. They were largely recorded theater performances

That makes much more sense then
Baba must have referred to a theater performance in 1901, which then fits the year of his marriage perfectly.
