"In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth" (Gen. 1:1) The first thing we learn about God is that He is creative and what He chose to create first was heaven and earth. These two locations would forever be in relationship. When Jesus taught us how to pray, He said, "Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven" (Matt. 6:10). God always planned on moving earth by moving heaven in us. If you are wondering if Jesus cares, simply go outside, stare into the sky, and know "... He hath chosen us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love:" (Eph 1:4).

Before God did anything, He chose you.

Weโ€™re going to be honest with youโ€ฆ ๐Ÿ˜…

We love rice-based soups for the winter! Hereโ€™s why: ๐Ÿ”ฅ

Rice has an incredibly hearty texture! Its ability to absorb flavors like a sponge makes for a rich and robust dining experience. ๐Ÿš

In the colder months, our bodies crave sustenance, and rice-based soups deliver just that. It offers a nutritious treat that is both warming and satiating.

Rice-based soup is a super easy way to incorporate tons of veggies into your meals. These soups are highly adaptable, allowing you to fuel your body with the fiber, vitamins and minerals it deserves.

Are you a constant victim of mushy rice? Hereโ€™s the solution! ๐Ÿš

Overcooking is the arch-enemy of perfect rice. It's an easy pitfall, but luckily the solution is simple.

You need to use the right rice-to-water ratio. You can find the precise measurement right on your riceโ€™s packaging! This can vary depending on brand and rice variety, so it is not a one size fits all.
Youโ€™ll also want to keep an eye on your rice while it simmers. Once the water is absorbed, give it a taste test. It should be tender yet firm.

After cooking, let your rice rest for a few minutes. Then, fluff it gently with a fork. This ensures that your rice does not clump together. Easy as that, no more mushy rice!

Did you know thatโ€ฆ

Rice is more than a side dish? It's a complex carb, which is a fundamental fuel for your body! Complex carbs offer sustained energy and so many unique health benefits. Unlike simple carbs, complex carbs are rich in fiber, vitamins, and minerals. This nutritional richness acts as a steady energy source, keeping you fueled without the energy spikes. โšก๏ธ๐ŸŒพ

So the next time someone tries to tell you that carbs are bad for you, set the record straight!

The story of Ralston's regenerative practices goes beyond the fields! Through cover cropping, crop rotation, and minimal soil disturbance, we're creating a rich, biodiverse environment that strengthens our soil's structure and enhances its fertility. โ™ป๏ธ

Why does this matter? Healthy soil is vital for high-quality rice production! As the soil thrives, so does the nutritional profile and taste of our rice varieties. Regenerative practices help in carbon sequestration, enriching the soil with organic matter, and improving water retention. This relationship between the soil and the crops elevates the quality of our products and contributes to a more sustainable and resilient agricultural system. ๐Ÿง‘โ€๐ŸŒพ

Now the birth of Jesus Christ was as follows: when His mother Mary had been betrothed to Joseph, before they came together she was found to be with child by the Holy Spirit. And Joseph her husband, being a righteous man and not wanting to disgrace her, planned to send her away secretly. But when he had considered this, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, "Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary as your wife; for the Child who has been conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit." Matthew 1:18-25

Risalamande is one of the most popular of all Danish desserts and Christmas dessert. This delectable dish is served every Christmas Eve following dinner. The name comes from the French, riz ร  lโ€™amande, which translates to โ€œrice with almonds.โ€ But the almonds are only one aspect of what sets this rice pudding apart. The base is your typical rice pudding, but with a twist: chopped almonds, vanilla-infused whipped cream, and a silky sweet cherry sauce. Simple, elegant and absolutely delicious!

Did you know that improving soil stability is not only beneficial for the crops, but it also helps prevent erosion? By implementing regenerative farming practices, Ralston Family Farms is doing their part in creating a more sustainable future. Soil erosion is a serious environmental problem that affects not only our food supply but also has broader-reaching effects on the ecosystem. Soil that is unstable can easily wash away during heavy rains and flooding, leading to devastating consequences. Fortunately, regenerative farming practices like crop rotation, minimizing tillage, and using cover crops can help improve soil stability. These techniques help increase soil organic matter, which in turn leads to better soil structure, and prevents soil erosion and nutrient loss. At Ralston Family Farms, we are committed to ensuring that our soil remains healthy, sustainable, and productive for years to come. Join us in our mission to protect the planet and preserve our precious soil!
