Simple ways to be more conscious about how we use our resources.

Making Homemade Tortillas

After years of purchasing tortillas with enriched flour and a whole list of unknown ingredients, Jon decided to make our own tortillas using four simple ingredients: flour, salt, coconut oil, and milk from a recipe that he found on The Prairie Homestead Blog.

Homemade Tortilla Recipe:
2 c flour (or half fresh ground wheat and half all-purpose)
1 tsp. salt
4 T coconut oil
3/4 c warm milk

Instructions: Using a pastry blender, mix together flour, salt, and coconut oil until it is crumbly (similar to making pie crust).  Add milk a little at a time and mix until everything comes together.  Divide into seven small balls.  Using a rolling pin, roll each ball about 1/8 inch thickness into a circle or use an inverted bowl for making a round shape. Fry in a dry skillet 30 seconds on each side poking air bubbles with a fork. Use immediately.
