New flavors

A weekend's long foraging outing yielded June treasure. 

So Sunday was busy:


Field garlic flower bud pickles
Common milkweed flower cordial
Elderflower cordial
Sweetfern butter
Bayberry oil


4 lbs of serviceberries frozen

To do:

1.5 lbs of serviceberries waiting to be turned into a syrup, and a pie.
Common milkweed buds to be blanched and preserved. I meant to turn some of them into tempura'd bites for last night's supper, but Life happened and they did not.

But I did manage to make some good lamb chops, basted with that sweetfern butter.

How was your weekend?

  1. I never heard of serviceberries before. They look fantastic. What do they taste like?

    1. A little like ripe apples, but more like marzipan, when cooked.
