I went out gathering today, with the goal of making something from my findings that I can eat on winter solstice.
So it'll be jam - saskatoonberry, Oregon grape, thimbleberry, trailing blackberry, elderflower, pineappleweed, rose petals, Stachys cooleyae flowers. Surprisingly no queen Anne's lace. And umeboshi, from underripe ornamental red-leaf plums (Prunus cerasifera) with some yarrow flowers thrown in for a flavor experiment.
I like to grow food, and harvest food from the wild.
Toots may contain un-CW'd meat & booze.
All about food, friends, cooking and community.
