Bountiful Yards!

A special treat in my harvest basket this week: gorgeous wild rose buds and blossoms!!!
Such a stunning addition to any herb tea or body product!

In my tea today: fresh clover blossoms (so sweet!!)
Just pour boiling water over the blossoms and steep for 10 minutes. Strain and serve!

Vinegars I put up today:
  • fresh stinging nettles (shown left)
  • fresh comfrey leaves
  • fresh chives
Just chop the fresh leaves into glass jars and cover with apple cider vinegar. Fold a larger piece of waxed paper into quarters and pace on top of the jar before putting on the lid to keep the lid from rusting. Shake daily for two weeks then strain and bottle. Serve on veggies, use in salad dressings or make delicious mayo with a twist!
