Sugar free bacon
and ham: Shopsy's regular bacon and Maple Leaf low salt
bacon (I prefer the Shopsy's), and Maple Leaf ham steaks are all
Loblaws in Whitby
and Oshawa carries the Western Dairy DCCC, and the health food department
in the Gibb St Oshawa Loblaws carries Organic Meadows cream, cultured
butter, and DCCC, and also sugar free vanilla. Loblaws dairy department
also has Lactantia and President's Choice cultured butter, both
salted and unsalted. I prefer the salted Lactantia.
Bulk Barn (I
believe they are in most of Ontario) carries pure ground almonds
flour), pasteurized honey in bulk (Billy Bee), and also the sugar
free vanilla. I also buy all my nuts there (I love Brazil nuts).
Check out what else they have, you may be surprised at what you
can find there.
On looking for
a yogurt maker (I have borrowed my mother's little 5 cup Salton
which I don't like much) I was shocked to find out you just can't
buy them anywhere anymore. You used to be able to get them anywhere
but I tried dep't stores, hardware stores, health food stores, hardware
stores - no luck. Finally a health food store in Ajax called Health
Plus offered to order the Yogourmet and starter for myself and Caresse,
phone number is 905-426-7587. We don't have them in yet, only been
a few days. On the yogurt maker issue: using that small yogurt maker
I found out quite by accident that it makes better yogurt if left
for 36 hours instead of 24, thicker and less sour (read above note
on memory problem as to why it was in there for 36 hours!).
Finally, I found
a good supplier of natural beef, pork and chicken, farm raised with
no hormones, etc in the Hampton-Orono area. They are called Ulrich
Meats at 5566 Liberty St N, phone number is 905-263-2398, just the
other side of Taunton. When I ordered my 1/2 pig there last week
they also said they smoke the ham and bacon and I requested no sugar
added, they replied no problem! I got their name from the man I
buy homemade Bratwurst from, also with no sugars or fillers, just
meat and spices. His name is Gerry Krukket, phone number is 905-983-5126.
I hope this is of help to some of you out there!
I am posting
this on Healing Crow also,
so no you are not seeing double if you see it there!
