a pesto ofSun, June 24, 2007 - 11:32 AM permalink - 2 comments
nettle leave (only ingredient not totally raw)
sorell (instead of lemon)
Lambs Quarters (instead of garlic.. a plant it was Judith who showed me first))
and some flexseed oil where young leave of spruce tree were kept for three weeks...heavenly taste and good for preservation (no need, it will be eaten much faster than you managed to make it)
this was eaten with a salad of young yellowrocket (better than broccoli)
green seeds of the Wych... read more

Here at last. beauty full blue. Somewhen in between a flower and a fruit I find the flower/fruit/thistle taste like heavenly artichoke.
The lovely blue is harmonising for the soul, and calms the breathing… (and a good pigment for painting)
Basia, is it really the national flower of Poland? what does it symbolise?
On the physical level great help for many digestion and urine problems, lack of appetite, stomach pains, gas…

This plant was introduced to me by Harald a bout 3 years ago, but it was only now it represented itself by my bare feet. The yellow-orange sap can cure warts (apparently also ring worm, and many liver conditions when taken internally as an homeopathic remedy… those sides where still not revealed to me, so I stick to warts healing).

prunus padus might still be found for your vinegar. some Sadun telephium and Archangelica litoralis (Dan, especially for you..it is the included picture) would boost your health.
Of the flowers we can eat- Cardmine pratensis, Lathyrus montanus, viola (try in i scream), Taraxacum vulgare -the famous Dandilion- great in a summer drink and so is Filipendula ulmaria, roses, Sambucus ... read more
Marsh Marigold (Soleihov), the green flower buds can be preserved in vinegar and salt, great in stead of capers.. do not overdose. flower essence (a topic for a different blog) would help period pains and other dis eases caused by excessive fluid in parts of the body. or the body as a whole. Be aware- The fresh plant can use its poison on you, so communicate with the plant first (like with any other thing) before you do anything.Fri, June 1, 2007 - 6:26 AM permalink - 0 comments
