Congrats Corey! He always gets one. This guy isn’t a monster but it will sure feed us well until next fall. Me, well I’m still trying 🤷🏽‍♀️, but at least there’s meat in the freezer now 🥩 🦌 .

Prepping sea lettuce pesto, out of Tomales bay we have three preparations of the same seaweed. Blanched, smoked with apple wood chips and also dehydrated. In the pesto will be leeks, almonds, walnuts and dried fruit. It tastes like bacon you guys!!!! To be served alongside our lamb terrines for Sunday night. .

The pic I posted yesterday was from my husband’s successful muley hunt. I wasn’t having any luck despite hunting hard so I shared it for good karma. And today it happened for me. Look at this ENTRANCE wound on my beautiful whitetail! Shot with my @gunwerks 6.5-284 at 180 yards. Couldn’t be more excited to get my first deer. Check out my story for the moments after 🤗

☕️ How much better does coffee taste on the weekend!! They’re even better when you upgrade your favourite cuppa with superfood mushrooms! Wait, whaat!! 😝
-
🍄☕️ Mushroom coffees are all the craze right now, and for good reason. Superfood mushrooms and coffee are a match made in heaven. ✨
-
Mushrooms love it when you add them into your coffee as they help to upgrade the immune system, boost energy, balance hormones, calm the nervous system and protect the adrenals from overstimulation of caffeine when we’ve had a few too many cuppas throughout the day.
-
Caffeine increases the production of cortisol (the stress hormone) in the body. Too much caffeine and we experience the jitters and eventually crash which is often referred to as adrenal fatigue. This is the body’s strategic response for returning back to a simpler physiologic form of function to conserve energy.
-
Basically, the body crashing is a sign that you need to rest in order to return to homeostasis. That’s why mushrooms in your coffee are the perfect upgrade because they help to sustain your energy levels throughout the day and counteract those annoying dips in energy. Balance is key my friend. Give mushroom coffee a try friends, our favorites are Chaga, Reishi, Lion’s Mane, and Cordyceps mushroom. 😝🍄💪

Please don’t stop hiking and exploring the woods because of snow. You will still find a host of beauties to forage and photo. Animal tracks are more visible in this season than any other and exciting to find. Wear layers, bring safety matches and a thermos of soup. Enjoy the silence. Whole wild Rosehips ( pictured) with the seeds intact can be crushed and steeped in boiling water to make a delicious tea containing a good source of vitamin C, beta carotene, Omega 3 and Omega 6. 🌹

Team effort on this boy. I only partially did the job on post that I was supposed to do, so we had a long tracking job with not much blood to follow, but the fresh snow helped. And Brady was in the right place at the end to make sure I’m taking home meat instead of a sad story. #whitetail #hunting #albertahunting #alberta #wildmeat #wildfood

Today I picked some spruce from this beautiful tree outside my house. 
Gathering and preparing plant medicine connects me to that ancestral time when this was simply a common thing to do. There is something about these practices that gives me an incredible sense of peace, connectedness to the land and deep joy. 
Herbal gathering and medicine making was something common to all of our ancestors and yet along the way, this knowledge was forcibly eradicated or sidelined as useless. Respect for and adoration of Nature for her healing powers has, in many cases, been replaced with distrust and disdain. Wild medicine has become something to be feared, tamed and shamed. 
What a waste of so many generations of collective knowledge and experience- I can’t even put it into words...so I focus instead on the beauty of the process of reconnecting with that knowledge and passing it on...and I focus on the beauty of the spruce in front of me and soak up her incredible scent as the aroma of spruce tea fills my kitchen and all that makes me sooooo happy!!!!! Spruce tea is full of vitamin C and can be easily gathered for free (please always be mindful of how much you take when foraging)! I am passionate about making natural medicine available to anyone and breaking down the idea that it has to be expensive or elitist. All it takes is a little time outside to collect the spruce, and a pot of boiling water and you have free vitamin C and aromatherapy! No need for expensive supplements and you get a little dose of nature therapy as well!

Went foraging with Damon @damontighe finally! He brought a pre foraging snack of bay laurel truffles. He ground up the darker roasted nuts and mixed with honey, layered some dry mugwort on top, and lastly added a roasted bay nut half. These alleged have a stimulating effect like cordyceps or  coca leaves. Definitely a nice snack before foraging or tin mining. My plan for my share of the haul is to roast them and save them for matsutake season so I can make a local terroir mole from scratch. Matsutake for the cinnamon and roasted bay nut for the chocolate and coffee notes? Pretty good idea imo. .

Foraging and gin. 
Always love working with @kyrodistillery - last summer I took the Opium team out for a foraging day. They were particularly stoked about yarrow, rock samphire, haw berries, lady’s bedstraw and mugwort 🤘🍃

Amanita Caesarea!Caesars Amanita all up in my zone.  With a beautiful coloration and fairy tail appearance this is another seriously scrumptious fungi that trends on the taboo side of mycological meals. Hunted and enjoyed in Italy and other Mediterranean countries this one is not recommended for new pickers or even for serious seasoned veterans for that matter. Approach this family of fungi with extreme caution!! However have an open mind and exercise your due diligence making sure your identification is spot on before consuming this mouth watering sophisticated delicacy. 
Truly ethereal... .

Ribbon Asparagus! One of the crowns I regularly plunder when foraging is growing under a pine tree, the root of which must be over the top of the crown. The gap between the roots must be getting tighter as this is the thinnest it’s ever been! Left it there but will have it’s cousins and heaps of other goodies at @farmgatemarket tomorrow!

It seems like everyone gets excited about foraging in the spring, pays it a passing mind in the summer and fall, and then forgets it all together in the winter time. There is a lot of food out there in the winter, even if you live in the frozen north.  Here's 50 things to forage even in the dead of winter, let me know if I missed any will you? ⁣

Nettle and Dandelion greens are still going strong, despite two recent snowfalls and temps in the teens with a wind chill below that this week. Today we had mild sunny weather, and harvesting greens at sunset was an unexpected delight after a stress-filled week.
❄️🌿❄️
I’m so grateful for these incredibly hardy, deeply nourishing wild plants that grow with us. They add potent nutrition to winter soups, and are enjoyable sautéed or steamed. I’ve learned to plan for some leftover cooked greens so I can add them to my morning smoothie, too.

African olive fruiting in the Royal Botanic Garden of Sydney. 
In my opinion one of the most obvious missed opportunity of the region. 
Introduced in early 1800’s by Mr Macarthur as edging tree, this is now one of the most ferocious coloniser of Sydney Basin, reclaiming ex-farm land. It is also one of the most sought after timber in the world, it offers amazing health benefits and has edible fruits. 
I am about to start a workshop on edible weeds at the @thecalyxexperience , in the gardens. 
This is one plant I will talk about.

These Amaranth seeds are one of my most exciting accomplishments of 2018!! We foraged seeds from wild Amaranth plants that grew on the Crow Homestead. Amaranth seeds are high in protein and we add them to granola, yogurt and baked goods. Basically anything that adds protein to breakfast food is a major benefit for us...especially when we get a little sick of eggs!! #crowhomestead #wildfood #offthegrid #foraging

My first attempt at a snapper sausage!

All the belly bits, tail, wing and cheek meat from the Cape Woolamai snappers, a fillet of kahawai and a good nugget of fatty Barra belly run through a mincer. Wild fennel, parsley, lemon and garlic = snapper snags!

Hot tip from @taurusfinemeats if you don’t have a sausage maker at home, get a caulking gun from Bunnings! 🔫

Since day 1 we’ve shown death, field dressing, blood, skinning, butchery, and all the other parts of making animals into food. It’s important understanding. The weather has decided (-21C tonight) that today is for skinning and the beginning of butchery. #butcheryourown #hunting #whitetail #muledeer #biggame #venison #wildfood

Giant puffball (Calvatia gigantea), Autumn. One would think of this as a giant soccer ball to throw at your friend rather than a mushroom. Although edible, I have yet to favor a method of preparation to consider this choice edible, yet it remains fun as a projectile of choice.

ALDER SMOKED WILD HALIBUT— If I knew smoking fish was this easy, I would have been indulging in this stuff way sooner. Been eating caramelized onion smoked fish dip for almost 2 weeks straight and I’m still not sick of it. Heavily pondered on the idea of quitting my day job and opening my own smoked fish dip company👉🏼#Recipes linked in bio // Can’t take all the credit @taluscreative essentially told me what to do when I picked his brain for inspiration💡

Photo and repost from @ward_andy this evenings duck flight. You can not beat this type of hunting, wild and fast and very good and healthy to eat. Dress them out tomorrow and then Sunday lunch. Well done @bigdaddyhuntsman spaniel, who’s name I have already forgotten!!! #wildfood #duckflight #duck #Scotland #Perthshire #mallard #teal #evening #eatwhatyouhunt #ethicalfood #eatwildsavetheplant
Sheila to the rescue!! Close to 11am today it was firmed up I’d provide some inuksiutit finger foods for a swearing-in ceremony. Glad I was able to help the event.

On such short notice & limited food at my fingertips & limited time on what I could make, I made fried #allanguaq #mattaaq pieces sprinkled with #aromat with a bit of soy sauce & cut up some #bipsi strips sprinkled with Kunniak’s Spices from  Alaska. All delivered by 2:30pm. And now to clean up all the oil that spattered everywhere in my kitchen. Our doggos will eat the leftover #uqsuq mixed with their food #winterishere

#WildWeek Day 3, Meal 2. Lunch today is Braised Cottontail Rabbit and Violet Blossoms!

Eating only wild foods and accepting that I can't just go to the grocery store where I could have access to all of the flavors of the world has forced me to keep things pretty simple. When I'm cooking, I keep thinking my dishes need something else, some other pizazz, but then I taste them and I realize they're much better just kept simple. 
The seasoning on the rabbit is only wild garlic cloves (Allium canadense), green onion grass (which is often called wild onion or field garlic, Allium vineale), and sea salt. 
The violet blossoms were frozen from this spring, so I just put them in the pan with the rabbit when it had gotten close to temp and let them simmer in the garlicky goodness of the drippings and dashed them with a bit of the sea salt. That sweet bean flavor I love about raw Violets shone through nicely in this dish. 
It was all so delicious, it was difficult to resist the urge to eat that entire, tender rabbit, but I wanted to save some to have with breakfast tomorrow, as I'll be deer hunting and will need the long burning proteins.  Though I am eating smaller portions than normal, after 3 days of wild foods I'm feeling healthy and energetic. I'm loving life being sustained by the wild earth!

Bear fat cracklins.
Thank you bear, for your fat bodies- for your ability to gather so much energy. Because of you, I will be warm and well fed this winter. Not shown here: 4 jars of bear oil. This fat is from a #roadkill bear that was brought to a #hidetanning workshop I went to last weekend. Were it not for this fat I would be eating butter and lard from domesticated animals. While I am happy to support farmers who treat their animals well, I am still opposed to domestication of any living being.

The fat rendering process, in short: remove adipose tissue from an animal, chop it up and cook on simmer heat until all the oil comes out and the fat bits are tiny and crunchy, strain your sweet animal oil for cooking and enjoy the #cracklins as snacklins.

Today on the homestead, we are processing venison. I pulled out this salt that I made in the spring. Its sea salt and spruce buds. 
I was VERY surprised on how sweet smelling the salt became. It's very citrusy and flowery. I cant wait to add it to my marinade for jerky. 
I am so pleased with the flavor of this salt, that I plan on making several large jars of it next spring.

Another glorious day in the Scottish highlands ... stalking deer in the hills one day,  collecting cockles on the beach the next. The land that keeps on giving! .

Venison. In season, sustainable and much more versatile than you think. Recently I’ve been making veni curries with some of the cheaper diced shoulder. It gives any dark curry a really rich deep flavour and is a great replacement for lamb. Seen here with fluffy rice & homemade mango chutney. Shot by the best @lucialowtherphotography.

Simmering up a batch of syrup. This batch is 1:1 water and sugar with a big handful of ponderosa needles and a couple globs of sap. Just boil that up for a while and then discard the needles. Don't use too much sap, as it can stick to the sides of the pot and be something of a mess to remove.
.
The syrup has a wonderful piney flavor and can be used anywhere you might want a syrup or sweetener. I use it on pancakes and waffles, in coffee, and in cocktails.

Cedar Tea is a easy way to get dose of  vitamin c into the body. In fact, a lot of conifers are safe for consumption and highly medicinal. White pine Tea has long been a remedy to fight and prevent scurvy. Hemlock tree can be used to treat infections deep within the digestive track, such as dysentery. Conifer Tea is deeply warming and perfect for chilly winter mornings. My kids drink a small cup regularly before school, especially when I hear that one of their classmates is sick. I prevent illnesses coming into my home by building my family’s immune systems all year long. ....

Coprinellus disseminatus (Fairy Inkcaps).
These little mushrooms typically fruit in massive quantities, often completely blanketing the ground around the trees and stumps where they grow. This is another mushroom that has a worldwide distribution and can be found in any country that you can find trees. When young, the caps are white to honey in colour, later developing more of a gray colour, and after only a couple days they will blacken. They are members of the Ink Cap family but are unique among them because they are the only species that does not autodigest their gills into a black ink. These mushrooms are technically considered edible but foragers often ignore them due to their size and fragility.
Follow along to see more photos of this mushroom and others! 👍🍄🌲

Candy Cap Mushrooms have a delicious maple syrup flavour that lends itself perfectly to desserts and once you try them, you'll be hooked.

Candy Cap Pecan Cookies

Makes 2 dozen 1½ inch cookies

½ cup unsalted butter at room temperature
2 teaspoons powdered Dried Candy Cap Mushrooms (nearly ¼ cup finely ground in a mortar or a cleaned coffee grinder)
¼ cup sugar
3 Tablespoons light brown sugar
¼ teaspoon vanilla
¼ teaspoon salt
1 cup plus 1 Tablespoon all purpose flour
¼ cup toasted Wild Pecans, finely chopped flaky
sea salt (like Malden) for topping the cookies
Position a rack in the top third of the oven. Preheat the oven to 325°F for both toasting the pecans and baking the cookies.
Place the pecans on a cookie pan and bake until toasted, approximately 15 minutes or until they are heated through nicely, but just on the verge of turning golden and releasing their intoxicating, warm aroma. Let cool, then chop, finely. You'll be cutting these cookies from a log, so avoiding large chunks of nut is helpful in forming a nicely shaped cookie.
Beat together the butter, the sugar, the brown sugar, the candy cap powder, the vanilla and the salt until thoroughly incorporated and creamy.
Add the flour and the toasted chopped pecans and beat until just combined, but don't over-beat. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and briefly blend again. Turn the dough out onto a sheet of waxed paper and form into a log approximately 1¼ inches thick.
Refrigerate the dough for at least 45 minutes. Once the dough is chilled and firm, remove from the refrigerator, cut into 1/8 - 1/4 inch-thick cookies. Arrange the cookies on a parchment or silpat-lined sheet 1 inch apart. Sprinkle the pre-baked cookies with the sea salt sparingly, holding the salt high above the cookies for even distribution.
Bake for approximately 20 minutes, or until the the edges of the cookies just begin to turn golden. Cool the cookies on racks.
Candy caps are available in our webshop!
