Mindful New Year's cleanse

Every year before New Year, I start my New Year's cleanse; a way to start fresh and in the best possible way. My New Year's cleanse includes the home, the mind and the body. I clean because I like the symbolism of starting the new year clean and balanced. It is also a way to land and reflect on the time that has passed and what you might want to do differently in the coming year. A way …

Creamy fennel and pear soup that balances the stomach

I often make a creamy soup of fennel and pear during my cleanse or when I need a little more balance in my intestinal flora in general. This soup is surprisingly good, I do not know if it is the creamy texture or the flavor combination but it tastes like luxurious. Fennel is great when it comes to digestion and it is also anti-inflammatory. Like pears, together they make this soup a really good…

Torta rustica with black cabbage

It is well into November but we can still eat food from our own crops. Today I made a torta rustica with black cabbage. In principle, a torta rustica is a rustic pie and this particular type of filling can vary between, among other things, cabbage and zucchini or pumpkin. Becoming as self-sufficient as possible is a heavenly challenge and in just 6 months we managed to produce an incredible amount…

Fire cider, a wonderful health threat

Have you heard of Fire cider? A wonderful health threat with a lot of tears in it. Originally the recipe comes from the UK and there are as many varieties as there are families. But the basic idea is to mix ingredients that are anti-inflammatory and antibacterial with apple cider vinegar, then let it soak for 3-6 weeks before straining and mixing with honey. Like this on the edge of autumn when it starts to get colder and the cold…

Time to pick rosehips and make rosehips

Now is the perfect time to pick rosehips in the wild. Rosehips are a bit everywhere, by walking paths, by roads and forest ends. So incredibly bursting with vitamin c and beta carotene and thus perfect to pick now for the winter. I prefer to make rosehips on the rosehips I pick. It is an easy way to take advantage of them without requiring too much time or work on my part. If it is …

The season for soup is here, this pumpkin soup is both creamy and good. I make it come back times during the fall and winter. It is good in so many ways. you can easily hide some other vegetable chips in it and you can also replace the pumpkin with the carrot. I like to eat what is in season as much as possible. Partly for the environment but also for the obvious reason that it…

I boil and preserve plum juice to enjoy this winter.

We have an old plum tree in our garden. And this year, the plum tree is really thriving. You pick one and it collapses three. Eddie pruned the tree two years ago and it really accelerated the plum. The first year after pruning, there were almost no plums at all, but now it is more than ever. But what do you do with all these plums? Feels wrong not to take advantage of…

The spinach has been out all winter and the friariellin I sowed indoors already in April, moved them out in May and today it was time to eat them.
