Cristy's Basil Oil March 03 2017

This delicious bright green oil is full of flavour and a great way to use up excess herbs and stems.  Our chief preserver Cristy makes it when we have lots of traded basil from local backyards. Use it drizzled over tomatoes, in pasta, on toast with ricotta or even through a butter cream for cakes! This will also work well with other soft herbs like dill or parsley. 

Fermented Lychee Soda using a Ginger Bug February 02 2017

This is a delicious seasonal fermented beverage that uses lacto-fermentation to create a sweet and tart carbonated beverage. In this recipe you are making a ginger bug to inoculate your lychee mix – think of the ginger bug like a sourdough starter. Don’t be alarmed by the amout of sugar in this recipe – the yeasts and bacteria will consume it all and turn it into gut loving lactic acid!
