Did I make you think? This is how I feel, along with some of the strongest women I know. Tag someone who needs to hear this! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
A couple weeks ago I met up with @veganbodegacat and @tattedvegan in NYC. Rebecca brought this perspective of meat-eating to my attention and I want to share it. Eating meat is NOT manly. Hunting game is NOT manly. A person that does not take advantage of voiceless sentient beings that are mass-murdered IS manly. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I'm not going to disregard all of the third-world countries that do not have the resources I have here in America. However, it is my mission to educate those people on permaculture and sustainability. It is my mission to get them to a point where they do not need to kill a cow/week in order to feed their family. Instead, they can grow gardens and permacultures (a self-sufficient garden that requires little to no work) and can focus on other things such as education. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Every day, chef @chriserasmus goes into the hills of the Franschhoek wine region and collects the fresh produce for the day's menu. It's all about super local ingredients and powerful flavors here. Literally my favorite meal down in South Africa!
That one is a take on the farmer's snack, with bread (roasted beetroot and smoked beef) and pork fat instead of butter. Another insane dish up in the story! ☝️

Quest for Local Flavors

Making some California Juniper Berries Syrup. Same technique as making the unripe pinyon pine cones syrup by mixing the fresh berries with brown sugar.

For the unripe pine cones, I used a mix of 50% cones and 50% sugar with juice of one lemon then leave in the sun for 3 weeks (Quart jar). The sugar extract the juice and makes a syrup that taste heavenly.

For California Juniper berries I used a similar technique. I always use the local berries when unripe because they have pine/lemony flavors. Ripe berries don't have much flavors and in the best circumstances taste pretty much like a mild sugar (which is cool in itself). Like unripe pine cones, the unripe berries have some humidity in them, so the idea is for the sugar to extract that humidity and create a syrup over time.

THIS MAY NOT WORK WITH OTHER TYPES OF JUNIPER BERRIES BTW and not all juniper berries are edible. So you need to know what you're doing before adventuring in this area. Our berries (Juniperus californica) are a bit special with being edible and flavorful when unripe.

For this recipe, I also added the juice of one lemon to keep the process acidic and thus avoid botulism. Probably not a must as I did a PH test on the juniper berries and they have a PH (acidity scale) of around 4.0 but I like to err on the side of caution. I'm also a food safety advisor so I like to check all this stuff.

Botulism can not occur in an acidic environment (that's why pickling works). Anyhow, the whole process is still experimental but I have no doubt it will work.

Here is what I did:

1 pint jar
1/3 of pint jar loaded with fresh or frozen large unripe California juniper berries
1 crushed fermented limes (optional, I just love the flavors)
Rest of the jar filled to the top with brown sugar.
Then juice of one lemon on top and close the jar.

Place jar in the sun for 2-3 weeks. Keep going until most of the sugar has turned into a syrup.

I like to have to have 2 layers of berries with sugar in between. I think it helps with extracting their juice.

Will update on the resulting flavors but I don't see why it would not be awesome. #wildfoodlove #syrups #juniper #foodpreservation #foraging

3 little pigs! Oh how I have missed raising pigs! Luckily I know where to get my fix now. These guys were too cute and made my heart smile while I was hanging out with @forestandfauna earlier this week. She's got a pretty sweet thing happening at her place and I'm excited to see all that it will turn into!

Freshly picked wattle on the way home from netball... Letting Tractor have a rest on the verandah daybed as there is a strong possibility that if outside he could get blown away in this horrible wind... #wattle #foraging #freshflowers #wildflowers #daybed #verandah #jackrussell #windy #countryhome #saturday #farmhouse #freeflowers
