🌿🌸🌈 Hoping to make colours like this in my dye pots again soon.... meanwhile it’s all coming up a bit ‘versions of brown’, which is nice enough but gets a bit sort of ....brown.....⠀
What colours are you making or working with lately ? ⠀
While I’ve ‘mostly’ never met a natural dye I didn’t like, I have made some I don’t love - what about you? What’s your best tip for turning browns or boring beige into more interesting colours? (I’m planning some iron & rusty things for over-dyeing). ⠀
Kuvasimme uusia VILLD-jaksoja Turun saaristossa, jossa tutustuimme mm. merikaaliin. Kuvan yksilö on aikamoinen muotovalio, josta otimme kuitenkin vain muutaman lehden. Tärkeää onkin muistaa, että merikaali on käynyt harvinaisemmiksi, eikä koskaan saa kerätä mukaansa koko puskaa! Voit myös auttaa merikaalia: ota mukaasi sen siemeniä (pieniä, helmen näköisiä palleroita), ja kylvä pitkin rantaa, jolta kaalin bongasit. Merikaali kasvaa hiekkaisilla ja soraisilla rannoilla. 🏝 #villdprogramme#merikaali#harvinainen#villiruoka#saaristo#korppoo#seakale#foraging#wildfood#ulkonaperillä 🎒 @partioaitta @fjallravenfi
Had dinner at INUA at Iidabashi last night.
Run by chef Thomas Frebel (ex sous-chef to René Redzepi of NOMA), the playful, unexpected dishes were a pleasure to enjoy.
This dish was squid, edamame, nasturtium flowers and sudachi citrus powder.
On our annual Oregon Coast trip this year we harvested some wild mussels. Swipe to see the backwards progression! It was so fun and easy, and I've never had better mussels. My niece even ate a huge bowl.
They're in a broth made of garlic, chicken bone broth made from a chicken we raised, parsley, tomato, and white wine. Butter was added on last for people that can have it.
The other half of dinner was some marinated and seared venison, harvested by my husband on the family land last fall. (Not pictured because it was eaten too quickly- lol) I like venison very rare, almost like seared ahi tuna. So tender and not at all gamey. We obnoxiously called this dinner our "Mountains Meet the Sea Wild Harvest Dinner." #paleo#primal#wapf#wapfkids#westonaprice#wildharvest#venison#mussels#oregoncoast#yachats#traditionalfoods#traditionalnutrition#ancestralhealth#foraging#rewild#wildfoods
Spotted a gem today! (Second pic) A #reishimushroom also know as a Lacquered Polypore. Dates back 2,000 years w/ so many benefits to this fungi including anti-ageing, cancer prevention, detoxify the body, improve cognitive activity, lowered blood pressure, healthy respiration, immune system aid and boost energy. Wowzers what a great superfood. But like always with great things, there's a down side.Extended use of Reishi mushrooms (for 1-2 months) has been connected with some side effects- headaches, dizziness, nose bleeds and dry mouth. Also some people are allergic to them.
The first ones are I believe some #TawnyMilkcap or some kinda milkcap , but not entirely sure so I left em.
I'm slowly developing a twist on a classic Negroni: I stir together the gin, Campari, and vermouth in the usual manner, and subsequently add half a measure of lavender infused-vodka and a quarter measure of chamomile-infused vodka. It still needs some tweaking, but the lavender subtly blankets and aromatises as if it were always meant to be there. Bulldog gin is a natural choice owing to its floral notes! #ginstagram#foraging#homemade
