Red Clover Pancakes

To make pancakes healthier and more fun, simply add nutritious flowers ~ your kids won’t even know it if you don’t tell them! ๐Ÿ™‚  I make a basic pancake recipe and add red clover to the batter. 
Let’s review the health benefits of red clover:

Red Clover is high in:

*Calcium
*Chromium
*Magnesium
*Niacin
*Phosphorus
*Potassium
*Thiamine
*Vitamin C

Internal Uses

*Acne

*Blood Alkalizer
*Blood Cleanser (especially heavy metals)

*Eczema, psoriasis
*PMS, Menopausal issues
*Prostate problems
*Purulent ulcers
*Whooping cough

External Uses:

*Abscesses, ulcers, boils
*Cancer
*Tumors, scrofular swelling

Parts of the herb you can use: Stems, leaves and flower – (the flower contains the most nutrition)

Here’s a basic pancake recipe:
1 1/2 cups unbleached flour
2 T. organic sugar
2 t. baking powder
1/2 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt
1 1/4 cups of raw milk (less if you like your pancakes thicker)
2 eggs
1 t. vanilla extract
2 T. olive oil

Mix dry ingredients. Make a well in the center and pour in milk.  Add eggs, vanilla and oil.  Whisk together, but don’t over-stir ~ keep the batter lumpy. 

Here’s red clover growing in my yard.  You want to be sure you don’t eat herbs that grow within 50 feet of the road – they contain too many toxins from passing vehicles.

Pick the heads off the flowers – just as many as you want to use.  The flowers that are more purple are better!

Don’t pick the ones that have gone brown
Wash them well.  I normally do 3 rinses to make sure all the bugs, and whatever else, is gone.
Pluck out the small purple petals (You can eat the whole flower head, but I only use the little petals for this.  The green part is a little crunchy ๐Ÿ™‚ )
Stir the red clover into the batter and fry in pan (I love using my iron skillets for pancakes!  It’s non-stick, but without the harm of the traditional “Teflon” non-stick coating. )
Serve with maple syrup, honey or jelly

You can use red clover to steep into a tea, add to salads or put in capsules.  You can buy red clover dried if you like, but finding it in the wild is free! ๐Ÿ™‚  Another good flower to add to pancakes is dandelions.  Beginning today to add nutritious herbs to your family’s diet will give them a healthier, better-quality of life!

    Dear Jill,
    I just love to see your creativity with your girls. One thing we still love to do is to look for unusual insects or flowers and identify them together. Just 2 days ago, we found a black swallowtail caterpillar on the dill eating away…but we had never seen the WAY that they eat. It is truly amazing, so out came the camera for a short video! My son (a senior) helped me and we all got it set up. Home-education at its best :)Those teachable moments are precious. Thanks for encouraging others. I LOVE your blog…we must think a bit alike ๐Ÿ™‚
