One of the fascinating details that I’ve learned about salt since the book and Bible study released came from a priest.

He explained that the holy water he uses isn’t just blessed, but it also contains a pinch of salt. Why? Because when people are baptized the church, when the water dries it leaves a thin coating or residue, reminding each one that they are the salt of the earth.

Well today, I’m talking to none other than Neal Bosshard, who has been working in his family’s salt mine since the age of 11.

Not only do we dive into salt passages in the Bible, but you know it wouldn’t be The Joycast without a culinary twist. So you’re going to discover the difference between various salts, how to pick a true, high-quality salt for your table? And even when the best time to add salt is when you’re cooking.

So pull up a chair! You don’t want to miss this delicious episode.

Just-out-of-the-oven bread can make you feel like you’re tasting the divine.

Jesus’ declaration, “I am the Bread of Life” takes on a whole new meaning—one that’s more textured than ever before.

In one statement, I realize, Christ makes endless statements:

I am your staple.
I am your sustenance.
I am your nourishment.
I am the extraordinary in your ordinary.
I am your past, present, and future.

In making this declaration, Jesus revealed Himself as the seed, the grain, the sacrifice, the offering, the provision. In making this declaration, Jesus alludes to God the Creator, Sustainer, Life-giver, Provider.

To understand the hundreds of mentions of bread in the Bible, I tracked down an expert on ancient grains and invited myself to his house to break bread for an afternoon.

As we dive into Session Four of the Taste and See Summer Bible study,  I’m thrilled to introduce you to Andrew McGowan, Dean and President of the Berkeley Divinity School at Yale. Author of Ascetic Eucharists: Food and Drink in Early Christian Ritual Meals, his insights will challenge you to relook at the hundreds of mentions of grains and bread throughout the Bible.

RECIPE

Jalapeño Corn Bread

1 cup cornmeal (teff also works well)
1/2 cup plain (all-purpose) flour
1/2 tsp bicarb (baking) soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp sugar
1 cup fresh corn kernels or canned corn (whole kernel or creamed)
1/2 medium onion, chopped
1/3 cup green (bell) pepper, chopped*
1 Tbp preserved jalapeño peppers, chopped*
2/3 cup shredded jack or cheddar cheese, lightly packed
1/3 cup olive oi
1 large or 2 small eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup buttermilk or soured milk

Preheat oven to hot (200C/400F).

Combine dry (first six on the list) ingredients in a bowl. Add corn, onion, peppers and cheese, stir to combine. In a separate bowl or jug, combine milk, egg and oil; add the combined liquids to the bread mixture, and stir just to combine.

Pour batter into a well-greased pan, bake for 30-40 mins; if the top is browning too soon, turn the oven down to 180/350. Test the centre – it may take a bit longer depending on the depth of the batter.

Figs are one of the most lush of Biblical fruits. Layers of berry jam notes unfold among the gentle crunch of seeds. The finest pastry chefs’ most innovative desserts don’t stand a chance against a perfectly ripe fig.

It’s no accident that the Scriptures boast of this ancient fruit and Jesus refers to the tree and its fruit at pivotal moments. Listen in on this insightful interview with a Kevin, Herman, a premier fig farmer, as we dive into Session Two of the Taste and See Bible study….

….because there’s so much richness in all things figs.

Have you ever hosted a gathering and worried too much about…

the food…the people…the conversation…the cleanliness…the cleanup…

What if you could host a gathering where the guests felt so loved and appreciated they joined you in the hosting… and you never had to refill a glass of water or load the dishwasher again?

Impossible!—that’s what I first thought.

Then Sarah Harmeyer shared what she’s discovered as the creator of NeighborsTable.com. She handmakes tables and delivers them personally across the country.

In the process, she’s learned delicious secrets of hospitality that will fill your life with joy—much like it did mine. #mindblown

That’s why today, as we kick off the summer Bible study, I thought she’d be a great guest for Lesson One: You’re invited to the table….because she is literally inviting everyone to the table and teaches us how to do it well.
