Fig Tree Branches
(Prunus domestica subsp. italica)
From, Iran originally.
These plums, are green and soft and velvety to touch, they are slightly larger than maribels and great, like most plums for cooking, baking, to make jam and are considered to be amongst the finest dessert plums.
Today is World Heart Day (!)
This past month has been a bit ‘up’ and ‘down’, to say the least.
As summer meets winter, I enjoy sweeping things under the carpet for now and getting ready for the winter.
I look forward to all the delights the following season will bring us.
September is also a time when we usually reflect and ‘take stock’ of things, as we prepare, for the colder months ahead, LOCKDOWN 2 which they say will bite even harder and make the most of some of the natural produce we have on offer and celebrate the autumnal season.
The activities I have chosen are basic activities, such as Berry Dunking Activities: Chocolate Coated *BLACKBERRIES or foraging and can be carried out both in the city and the countryside, at no additional cost.
The recipes I have chosen use standard basic household ingredients, that are generally cheap, affordable, widely available and have been Price Cut by several supermarkets during this epidemic.
The activities and recipes also, exclusively for this time of year, choose ingredients and produce that celebrate the fecund season.
Today is also ‘World Heart Day’, so we see, connecting with and embracing nature, our surroundings and environment, always seems to make things delightfully relevant somehow…
Even if it was a mistake (!)
The activities and recipes can also enable you to make cooking and eating part of a healthier, active, refreshing and sustainable lifestyle, that is healthy for all the family, the nation, the planet, our global footprint and your purse strings too.
