Spruce and Pine

The two most common coniferous trees in Sweden: Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris) and Norway spruce (Picea abies) both have edible parts. While in spring you will be interested in young shoots and male and female flowers (cones), but in winter the needles will be your treasure. 

Wild raspberry

My fav edible bush. I am not talking here just about fruits. There is so much more to love about raspberry.

chickweed

Chickweed feels at home in rich soil with plenty of moisture.  In favorable conditions, it will grow lushly and blanket the whole ground with a carpet of small leaves and tiny white flowers.

My tempeh story

It's been over five years since I started growing my own tempeh. My first batch of home-grown tempeh was made for fun as a one time culinary experiment. But it turned out to be something big. I fell in love with homemade tempeh from the first bite. The fresh tempeh tasted amazing and it had so many uses in plant-based cooking.

Why ferment?

TASTE -  fermentation makes food taste more, gives us unique flavors that taste can't be achieved by chemical additives or the addition of any spices.

Garlic Mustard

One of common and easy to identify plant for foraging in early spring. Can be find on forest edges and hedgerows. Have pungent and slightly bitter taste.
