SPQR Everything Bagel Seasoning – Item of the Day — 3 Comments

  1. I made this for lunch.  I live in a food desert, so had to make some substitutions:

    I had no almond flour, so used coconut flour.

    No Xanthan gum, so I used a tablespoon of vital wheat gluten.  For those sensitive, omit.

    The rest as published.  Not bad at all.  Next time I will allow to rest about 10 minutes before baking.

    Thanks, Jack.  (Going on 6 weeks without using any insulin.)

    Keto has changed my life.

    • If you are going to make chaffles often it is totally worth ordering some almond flour and xanthan gum.

  2. I use the OTHER offering from Trader Joe’s… “Trader Joe’s Everything but the Bagel Sesame Seasoning” because it is certified kosher by the O-U (a widely accepted kosher certification agency).

    As far as I can tell, there is no certification mark on “SPQR Everything Bagel Seasoning.” Apparently the label says “kosher certified,” but it doesn’t say who the certifying agency or individual is. Thus, I will have to contact the company to ask. Trust me. I’m not going to bother. This is how many kosher certification agencies like the O-U can charge good money to allow their trademarks to appear on the label. The food company knows that they will get additional sales to offset the cost of certification.

    How does this apply to the Survival Podcast?

    Well… if you want people to choose permaculture certified food products, then you will need some way to identify them without the government getting overly involved like they did with so-called “organic” products. Trademarks fit the bill. Each private permaculture certification agency should build its own reputation and gain the trust of the public. Thus, if Jack Spirko slaps his trademark on the label (the guy in sunglasses and headphones), people will trust the trademark because Jack is trusted within the community. Wheres, if the label only says “permaculture certified” people will not know who said so or what that even means, and having the government define what “permaculture” means takes us down the road of “organic”. I sure don’t want that.
