Mushroom Accompaniment

I am not actually sure what to call this. It is a sauce, a spread and a dip. Spraucip?
I made this to try out for our our Christmas Eve Fondue Chinoise for the meat and ended up putting it on just about everything. I found the recipe on Swissmilk - it`s a fantastic website that has their recipes divided up into a lot of categories for simple use. I changed the reicpe a bit to suit our tastes, but overall, stuck to it for the most part.
Unfortunately, I can`t tell you how long it lasts as it was gone by the end of dinner, however you can`t make it more than half a day in advance, so probably not very long.

What you need:
15 g dried porcini mushrooms (you can buy 30 g bags easily)
150 g rahmquark - had never actually used this, so just bought the Coop brand
80 g sour cream
1 1/2 Tbls chopped fresh parsley
1.5 -2 cloves garlic, depending on your taste. I used 2
2 Tbls Cognac (again, depending on your taste)
pinch of salt, ground fresh pepper.

First, you will need to soak the mushrooms in warm water for 10-15 minutes. Remove and pat try, then chop finely.

Mix the other ingredients in a bowl, omitting the garlic and cognac. Add the mushrooms. Add half the garlic and congac and taste. If desired, add more.

Sprinkle with a bit more parsley and cover, put in the fridge until ready to use.


It`s also yummy spread on fresh bread!

    Is interfaith ministry a Christian concept found in Scripture? Yes, it is, however, the interfaith ministry found the Bible teaches converting men of all faiths or no faith at all to accept Jesus as The Christ the Son of the living God and the only way to the Father. The interfaith gatherings in the Bible were not a forum used to proclaim that there were many roads that lead to heaven. The interfaith meetings were not used a symposium to agree that all religions may lead to salvation.


    Acts 17:1-3...they came to Thessalonica, where there was a synagogue of the Jews. 2 And accord to Paul's custom, he went to them, and for three Sabbaths reasoned with them from the Scriptures, explaining and giving evidence that Christ had to suffer and rise again from the dead, saying, "This Jesus whom I am proclaiming to you is the Christ."

    At his interfaith meetings Paul did say we are all trying to reach heaven, but we are just traveling different avenues. The apostle Paul did not preach a compromised gospel.

    Acts 17:13 But when the Jews of Thessonica found out that the word of God had been proclaimed by Paul in Berea also, they came there as well, agitating and stirring up the crowds.

    If your teaching and preaching is not stirring up the crowds, is it possible, it is because your gospel message has been amended to mollify your listeners or readers?

    Acts 17:22-34 So Paul stood in the midst of the Areopagus and said. "Men of Athens, I observe that you are very religious in all respects. 23 For while I was passing through and examining the objects of your worship, I also found an altar with this inscription, " TO AN UNKNOWN GOD.' Therefore what you worship in ignorance, this I proclaim to you......32 Now when they heard of the resurrection of the dead, some began to sneer, but others said, "We shall hear you again concerning this." 33 So Paul went out of their midst. 34 But some men joined him and believed..........

    When Paul was preaching at the interfaith conference at Athens what took place?
    1. He did not tell them it does not make any difference what you believe as long as you are sincere.
    2. He told them they worshiped in ignorance.
    3. Most rejected Paul's preaching.
    4. Some believed the truth of the gospel.

    The apostle Paul did not change the gospel to make it more palatable to the crowd. He did not tell them that all religions are approved by God.

    Galatians 1:6-8 I am amazed that you are so quickly deserting Him who called you by the grace of Christ, for a different gospel; 7 which is really not another; only there are some who are disturbing you and want to distort the gospel of Christ. 8 But even if we, or an angel from heaven , should preach to you a gospel contrary to what we have preached to you , he is to be accursed!

    Paul was preaching to a interfaith/interdenominational group, the Judaizers at Galatia. Judaizers were Jewish Christians who were advocating keeping Jews customs in order to be saved. The apostle Paul did not say that all denominations could teach different terms for pardon. He said if they taught a gospel contrary to what the apostles taught that they should be accursed.

    1. FAITH: John 3:16
    2. CONFESSION: Romans 10:9-10
    3. REPENTANCE: Acts 2:38
    4. WATER BAPTISM: 1 Peter 3:21, Mark 16:16, Acts 2:38

    The apostle Paul was not a fan of interfaith/interdenominational meetings that advocated all faiths or that all terms of pardon bring about salvation.

    The apostle Paul believed in the ONES: (Ephesians 4:4-6)
    One body.
    One Spirit.
    One hope.
    One Lord.
    One Faith.
    One Baptism.
    One God.
    One Father.
