Spruce Your Seasons With Sorghum

Mon, 22 Nov 2021 08:46:31 CST

Spruce Your Seasons With Sorghum The holiday season is here! There are items to bake and decorating to do, filling our homes with the warmth, smells and feelings of harvest, Thanksgiving and good cheer that make the season so special. We often tout how versatile sorghum is, and the same can be said for your home. Get your bread pan ready and save a few panicles from the combine. Sorghum is the perfect addition to sprucing up your home and recipes this holiday season.

Make This Recipe:
3 cups Nu Life Market Gluten-Free All-Purpose Flour
1 tsp baking soda
4 ripened bananas, mashed
˝ tsp salt
˝ tsp vanilla
˝ cup palm shortening
1 cup sugar

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease a loaf pan and set aside. In a large bowl, combine Nu Life Market’s Gluten-Free All-Purpose Flour, baking soda, and salt. In a separate bowl, cream together palm shortening and sugar. Stir in eggs, vanilla and mashed bananas until well blended. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan. Bake for 60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Then, set aside on a rack to cool for 15 minutes. Remove from pan and cool completely on a wire rack before slicing.

Decorate with Sorghum

This holiday season, decorating is made easy with sorghum. With the various colors, textures, height and eye-appeal it exhibits, a simple arrangement containing sorghum will add the perfect amount of unique decoration to a space.

To create an arrangement, you will need sorghum from a craft store or fresh from the field and other traditional arrangement aspects such as flowers and grasses to f ill your designated vase. Once your internal components are obtained, place them in the vase, and set the arrangement in an area that needs decoration.

Whether you use sorghum as the main component of the arrangement, or as accent detail, it will assist you with ensuring the arrangement catches the essence of fall and your guests’ attention. When taking your sorghum from the field, wrap the heads in newspaper to dry down. This also helps them retain their shape. Sorghum already comes in a variety of warm colors, but you can also spray paint them to match any centerpiece you create centered around the colors of fall.

As the seasons and holidays designed to mingle with others approach, having a unique the smell of fresh, warm and gluten-free banana bread, visitors are bound to sit and stay awhile.
