Hello Fellow Wild Creatures. Welcome to the winter of 2017 in Vancouver...
|what's this white stuff?|
|Bone Broth, Curried Chicken,|
Ramen Noodles, Asian Greens
This past year I was lucky to venture into the wild across BC many times. I learned about and harvested some delicious, medicinally potent, and sacred things that I preserved in order to sustain my health when all these gifts are buried under snow. I've written a lot about my wildcrafting adventures in my personal blog - including my experiments with medicinal broth.

and their Medicinal Pits
Besides broth, I made delicious medicinal liqueurs that can be used as digestive aids or cough syrup; made jams, jellies, and pickles; blended wild botanicals for teas to treat various ailments from stomach upset and menstrual cramps to sluggish energy levels and stress; crafted tinctures with alcohol and glycerin; fashioned bath salts and dry shampoo; and even fermented some of my harvests for lightly alcoholic wild sodas.
