Fruits, fruits, fruits

This years holiday week in the garden has been highly defined by lots of fruits from our beautiful and big mirabelle-plume-tree. But what to do with so many fruits? I have made some jams and chutneys. The rest is for the birds, the slugs and all others out there.

Spring. Now.

It was given by  the artist Anna Gruber-Schmälzle at the Britzer Garten and she showed us how to cook faded blossoms in some water together with alum to extract the color. After mixing it with arabic gum […]

For a last time in this year I have been harvesting in our garden: small carrots, kohlrabi, parsnip, white cabbage, beetroot, pumpkin, and – as a surprise – quite a lot of caiguas. Does anyone have a good recipe for this vegetable? I tried it raw and it tasted like cucumbers but looked inside like […]
