I'd like regular ancestral cooking emails!
Magical home-roasted single-origin cacao doing a dance in some magical home-brewed ancient rye ale.
I use the word magical because drinking this (and using the left-overs from the brewing in pancakes and breads) does something to me that feels other-worldly. It’s not the alcohol (promise!)…there’s not much of that in it. It’s the connection; connection to the ingredients, the creation, the process and the sharing.
Truth is, I don’t need beer (or cacao) to do this. I can get that feeling with some parsley grown in a container in my garden.
Not that I’d give up the beer you understand… :-)
