Eat the Weeds! Fried Dandelion Flowers

Eat the Weeds! Fried Dandelion Flowers

Our lawn has become a sea of dandelions. Their vibrant yellow flowers dance in unison to the cool spring breeze. We are certainly overdue for cutting the lawn, but until i force myself to do so, we will keep enjoying the nutritious wild foods that have emerged from the ground. This past weekend, while hosting some close friends, we enjoyed a few wild food feasts. I whipped up a tasty fried dandelion flower dish that was perfectly paired with some aged fermented tomato salsa.

Colorful Kraut

Colorful Kraut

I love the idea of eating from the rainbow. Consuming a variety of different colors provides the body with a wide range of nutrition as well as beauty. This recipe is no exception. Colorful kraut not only looks beautiful, it is loaded with beneficial bacteria to keep our immune systems strong & and our digestive system is tip-top shape. I love making sauerkraut for the family and mixing and matching vegetables, herbs, and spices provides a nice variety to our staple diet.

Curing is the act of food preservation of meats + fish with the use of salt, sugar and/or nitrates.

Romesco Sauce

Romesco Sauce

Romesco, the classic Spanish sauce is one of my go-to recipes that is not only simple to make, but a very versatile condiment. This fiery sauce can be used as a spread on your favorite sandwich, a dip for roasted vegetables, or a delicious sauce for roasted or grilled meats and fish.
