Do you have a helper? Yes, she tells me that she will ride, but she needs mom to hold her. Oh yes, mom. She is a good seat belt system. the medium is good right there hey are you ready, what do you think? Everest are you ready yeah these are all our friends the sippys this is Jenna and Wyatt and they're here today at their house because Jeremiah ran into
somethingthey heard screaming and he says why am I not with you um we we came across
somethingin our shed and jeremiah called wyatt he said hey i got something i think you might be interested in i'll tell you why in a sec ok so on sort of a corner of our property we have these two old
barns and i don't do a lot of videos down here our neighbors have dogs and stuff it's often noisy but when we got here there was some old stuff in some of these
barns and we already cleaned up a lot but maya came across these boxes of some old records and stuff that he thought you know I don't want to just throw these away these might be worth something we don't really have time to do anything with it that's why you gotta get your hands dirty I mean look at this yeah we don't even know , I mean I don't know what's in there other than it could be something it could be a million dollar thing that's true you gotta watch out okay check this out this is cool rca and i don't know nothing about the logs either so I'm not sure the ones on the edge look a little rough around the edges but like some of them I think they're probably in a pretty good group like the atlantic group behind the zebra of the door, so yeah, I mean they're definitely old where where did they come from?
We don't know oh they were here oh yeah they just came with the barn and when Jeremiah was cleaning there was a bunch of trash but he saw them and he said "you knew you never know there might be something of value in there because usually when i see records in this thrift store like the bigg Well these are like little yeah so wyatt is a reseller and he has a youtube channel called rewilded reselling and we met him when we moved here through our church so that i wanted to introduce them to you because it's one of the questions i get the most often on my channel is how do you get paid for this and obviously having a youtube channel that can write books and do content selling merchandise and all of that has really paved the way so we can live together full time at home as a family and i realize not everyone is going to have that opportunity but there are ways you can build business and make money working from home and reselling is one of those shapes, so I thought this is a really cool example of a family. that he has gone off the beaten path to do something different so he can stay home and support his family what do you think?

foundon his thrift adventures because he spends a lot of time in thrift stores and things like that obviously looking for things to resell oh great that was like a revelation comes the thing and it's just listen this is not a joke ok my size I would have been tempted it's vintage perfect one of my things is vintage so this is anytime you want to see if it's vintage you know that you just look at the label and if it says like this says made in the usa it's made in the usa it's probably from the 90s yeah but that's really cool that's so awesome and i just got told in one from his videos, like a couple weeks ago, that he likes to get some of his stuff, yeah, and he was right. here and then the next day I
foundthis which is very stylish I love it it won't be useful today because it's pretty hot 80 degrees but when it's cold I think it will be great. absolutely closed so thank you thank you so much well that was so sweet that was so sweet to be able to share our friends with you send them something we didn't need and get this really cool gift in return too guys we're like pretty far from having little ones like benjamin being our babies turning seven here in a few months it's been a while since we've had a baby and we're broke so noah and maddie announced to us a couple of weeks ago that they're having their first baby and I'm going to tell everyone i'm going to be ridiculous ridiculous belligerent even ok guys now it's night um after our friends left this morning i had some things to work on so i turned the camera off but now i thought i'd turn it back on because i'm in my kitchen and I'm going to start the process of making lunch tomorrow for about 30
peopleI think including the kids we're going to have our first class it's kind of a class I know about butchery, I guess you could say we have these hundred, uh, we have a hundred meat birds that we've raised in the last two months, um, our friend Wes and we decided to go together and raise a batch of meat birds together and he raised them and then we brought them here and we've been rotating them pasture here on our farm and we have a lot of
peoplehere locally who are really interested in learning how to raise their own meat so we just opened it up to them because we were going to slaughter and show them how now we're hopeful for the future specifically Well, once we get more of our farm built, more facilities here, um, we're hoping to do this regularly and do workshops, and we've talked about the potential where people could know, how to buy and come and help butcher and bring home a certain number of birds and things like that so that's all in the future but this is really exciting to me because when you have u a general idea of what you want to do those first few tries even though you know it's not quite what you've envisioned but those first few expressions are always really exciting and one of the things I really want to do when we do class type stuff is I want to having good meals that are largely farm-raised right now is kind of hard for me right now because my farm isn't producing much, but I really started thinking about it and decided what I'm going to do for this workshop, so I'm pulling out this big toaster oven. this is like a 24 quart n toaster oven and if you don't have one of these you may not have a reason for it but i am telling you this is one of my most used kitchen tools.
I've had several toaster ovens over the years, so when I was young. female a teenager in high school lived with my dad I would break the rules and actually was a pretty real follower kid but I got it in my head in hindsight this wasn't very safe but I got it in my head that i wanted to feed the homeless and we lived near this we lived near the capital of arkansas near little rock i grew up just in a suburban community outside the capitol and arkansas is not a really big place little rock is not a huge city by comparison with like real massive cities but it was the big city I grew up near and by the time I was 16 every time I started driving um my dad found out I was actually taking money and buying things like tuna cans with pull back . tops and i like all these different things and i was having like bags of food and giving them to people under the bridges in the city and he didn't punish me for breaking the rules, he told me i couldn't do that anymore, that wasn't sure, but he bought one of these big old toasters. ovens and i went to sam's club and i got these big cases of these styrofoam cups and what we would do on the weekends is we would make this big pot of soup and we would pour it into these cups and we would stick a spoon to the side and he would go with me and we'd go and hand this out it's obviously a very sweet memory and something we used to do together so this was like when I grew up into adulthood it was always like you had a toaster oven and my mom had given me one and I remember as my family grows my mom said she really needed one of these and the only time i really used it was thanksgiving for a long time but then we started growing our own food and started having things that really needed a lot of food you can make a lot of food in one of these you can roast a turkey you can put it on like a pan and roast it like an oven and in our mobile home this is not a big oven even some big pans won't fit n there and when I started cooking I was like oh my gosh what am I going to do and I actually bought two of these for thanksgiving at a store that put them up for thanksgiving because obviously people buy them to make turkeys and hams and stuff and I was like, oh yeah, I should get a roaster oven and as I was sitting here thinking about how I'm going to feed 30 people this weekend, I thought back to those huge tubs of soup we used to make and I was like, oh yeah, soup soup chicken would um would be a nice meal on a cool winter day a day in December to feed everyone so that's what I'll do here and give you a little bit of a two day process but I can go ahead and tell you now so i have thought of four chickens these are chickens that ra and since i don't have a lot of things that actually grow here on the farm i bought the vegetables that are going to go into this so i thought we would use our chicken and at least it is in the line of what I am tr tying to do what it is to serve food in our workshops that came from the farm these came from our farm in arkansas but it's the same and I'm going to rinse this unwrap these chickens and bring them here to roast so I like to use roaster ovens to make broth because this pan that's sitting in the oven, um, you can say it's just a pan and so I like to put if I'm going to make beef broth by taking all the bones and putting them in this pan and you can roast them right there in the roaster oven and then pour the water over them and then simmer them in the same pan, which makes the process much neater. bread and what I really like to do for broth is do a lot at a time and then I can and I can quarry which I can then put in the soup or whatever I'm making but I can also do pints and even sometimes I can just can one cup drinking jars like someone gets a little messy having a good bone broth on hand you can just open a cup and take a sip it's really nice four chickens packed into this rotisserie oven if your goal is chicken roasting it's probably not the best way to do it um you know that's when you put so much meat in tight spaces to cook it steams a little bit instead of crisping so you don't necessarily get the crispiest skin and it's also may have uneven cooking to have these whole chickens so packed it's not ideal for roasting chicken roasting chicken isn't really my goal here when making stock of any kind if you roast the meat or the bones first it just does get your flavor deeper and my goal here isn't necessarily to get this chicken fully cooked so I'm going to turn it on like 350 or so okay awkward voiceover momentarily here because I missed an important clip before I started grilling you have to put all the seasoning in so I put a lot of salt and pepper and a little bit of paprika on these birds now I will put vegetables in the broth but not until after it has simmered overnight because I don't want them to bitter the broth and in an hour I'm going to take some jugs of water and cover all of this chicken with water and then I'll probably cook it at that point like 20 more minutes or just to make sure if there were any pockets that weren't like heating evenly they keep going go ahead and the meat cooks and the thing is I'm going to put all that meat back in and cook it longer later. so I'm not really worried about whether I'm more worried about overcooking it at this point than undercooking it, but at that point I'll take out the chickens, shred all the meatoff the bones I'm going to get all the remove the meat and put the bones back in and I'm going to put my water in and let it simmer in this roaster oven overnight and that way it's making more like a bone broth now when i'm making bone broth and that's my goal i'm not normally using whole chickens i'm using carcasses i've saved many times like i'm cooking whole chickens or something like that i'll save the carcasses after we eat like roast chickens and then once Once we have a handful, I'll put them in here covered with water and usually cook them on low for 36+ hours.
I'll serve this for lunch tomorrow. It's night now so it's not going to simmer very long but it's still going to be a nice rich broth and I'll have that chicken stored in the fridge and I'll be able to sauté onions carrots celery some herbs I'll probably put a lot of herbs in this, namely sage parsley I like thyme thyme is probably one of my go-to herbs whenever I cook something like this oregano is really good and I'm going to put a lot of herbs in this with those aromatics lots of garlic and then leave bring everything to a simmer and probably put rice in it will be my go to because I always have plenty of rice on hand and I can put a few cups of rice in this big pot and this is going to be three gallons of soup and that will feed everybody tomorrow I started um i just got some sourdough from my fridge my sourdough has been swaying and rolling and you can see i have a lot of bubbles i just fed this um and so on tonight but by the time i go to the bed which is probably in about five hours, um, this will have doubled and I'll go ahead and mix up a few batches of dough tonight to bulk proof overnight and I can start baking them like mid-morning.
I will form the loaves in the morning and let them rise. a little more it'll be a little quicker sourdough so tomorrow at lunchtime I'll have three gallons of soup ready it'll be pretty easy and I'll have a handful of loaves of sourdough bread so I can feed all these people , so I shared my friend's rewilded resale earlier in this video and I'm going to move on since we're talking about cooking, uh, cooking in bulk. I'm going to go ahead and share another YouTube channel with you that I've been watching a lot lately and got really inspired.
Yesterday I saw one of its premieres. and i was chatting with her um becky from acre homestead and she makes a lot of really great videos um just about cooking and preparing food and growing food and all that stuff and i found her because youtube just suggested a video where she was doing all these frozen meals right on my Mind you, I've given up on doing a ton of freezer-prepared cooking because it's all crock pot meals it's been my experience, much of it is crock pot meals or it requires a lot of as you know packaging and processed ingredients. of convenience and for me, when I'm used to cooking from scratch, my family is used to eating food that is cooked from scratch, um, whenever I make these kinds of convenience foods, no one really eats them that well, you know li ke is not something that anyone is very excited about and I cook for my family because it is a pleasure, so I want them to be excited about the things that I am cooking, but she makes all these frozen meals and she packages them in these glass containers like pyrex and she wraps them up and freezes the whole container where you can thaw it and put it in the oven without a crock pot and I've been watching these videos like crazy and I'm so inspired and excited i printed out a bunch of her recipes um the other day yesterday and i'm getting ready to make a big day like her now she's amazing making videos while she's doing it i don't know if i'm still going to oh there's a crafty ben i'll try from spending like a major review cooking day and I don't know if I have the ability to film it while doing so many things.
I'm very impressed by her ability to do that, but I wanted to share it with you. because, um, you know talk about making big bulk food stuff like this like now, I'm thinking you know you could make a big batch of soup like this and freeze, you know, containers of this and thaw them and put them on the stove and having dinner ready and I really want to prepare more by doing that where I spend like a couple days a month really cooking throughout the day to simplify dinner time because I mean we all get into a rut and I've really gotten into one routine with food since I moved because I don't have a constant influx of food for my farm to keep me inspired and your channel has really inspired me and I really needed it so check out Aker Homestead I will link the two YouTube channels of the ones I've talked about in this video. below and I also don't have a link or a place for something like this rotisserie oven if you want to search for something like that but that's what it's called if you want to search for something it's called a rotisserie oven and unfortunately this is one of those things that people will buy and so, as you know many times you will go to amazon and things will be like crazy bookmarked.
I paid like 45 each for these and that was like a thanksgiving special if they're over a hundred bucks that's not a good deal um they shouldn't be over a hundred bucks 40 to 70 I'd say that's probably pretty average for one of the larger ones and you may be able to find ones that are like oh this is not a very well known brand and some of the brands might cost more than that but just so you know I don't want you to go and find something you heard me mention and you think 150 is a good deal that's marked too good a lot for me and now i'm going to stop that benjamin when you come say goodbye to everyone with me can i show you i can show you reading hey what are you reading kids wagon kids nice well i want this flatten oh that sticker on the back bothers you yeah sorry ok benjamin doesn't want to stop reading his book to log off so i'll log off you haven't bothered with us thanks for passing the r join us today, we bless you until next time
