Best Ever Porridge with a touch of Ayurveda

It seems to be true that as you get older your digestion becomes more sensitive and reactive. I used to be able to eat anything and in large quantities and suffer no consequences. Now I need to eat in a conscious way and choose carefully what I put into my body. Don’t get me wrong, [...]Read More...

Like most kiwi’s foraging is in my genes. I can proudly claim Polish and English descent on my dad’s side and Taranaki Maori and Welsh on my mum’s side. My dad’s great grandparents came over to New Zealand as refugees to escape the annexation of their country by Germany. Polish schools were closed and to [...]Read More...

Christmas Stollen

Christmas just wouldn’t feel right without baking a stollen. It’s a traditional German bread with a deliciously moist centre of ground almonds. This year I’ll make some as christmas gifts. Yes they are a little bit fiddly and there are a few stages in the process but it’s so worth the effort. Making festive breads [...]Read More...

Preserved lemons for those lamb casseroles. Fruit Preserves, Preserved Lemons, Easy Peasy, Casseroles, Cucumber, Lamb, Festive, Mason Jars, Fresh

Preserved Lemons

There is no great mystery to preserving fruit. All it takes is some fresh unblemished produce, preserving jars, lids and seals. I have been preserving fruit more than twenty years and have never sterilized my jars. Never had any problems with bad food either. I simply give the jars a thorough wash in hot soapy [...]Read More...

Figs in Port

Yes it’s true, Christmas is just around the corner. When my children were small we used to make almost all the pressies for friends and family. It was a way of getting the children involved in the spirit of Christmas and not so much into the stress around shopping and finding the ‘right’ present especially [...]Read More...

KEFIR- The friendly bacteria

I remember being told as a four year old child to be careful to not eat the yogurt bug in our yogurt jar. With no further explanation of what this actually meant my imagination went wild. From then on I spent many hours staring at the Ag jar in the fridge hoping to catch a [...]Read More...
