|leeks make a beautiful bunch of flowers and stay fresh|
longer when they stand with their feet in a little water.
today they ended up in our dinner: pea soup.
cracking hazelnuts can be a messy job.
we keep the nuts in one bowl and
stand it on top of another one
in which we collect the empty shells..

|after cooking the rosehips i blended them to pulp and found |
the seeds floating on top of the mixture.
first used a skimmer and then diluted the pulp
with water to pass it through the sieve better.
|the sieved rosehips|
|lots of messy work!|
|sterilizing the jars with hot water and soda and filling with |
hot mixture of rosehips, 1 apple, lemonjuice and sugar.

start by frying an onion in olive oil and add the chopped chervil, stir fry for a minute and add water and broth. chop with a hand blender and serve... we added a little bit of creamed coconut on our plates, it was a lovely soup!

today i went to the beach with my friend Marjan and her daughter to pick rose hips in the dunes. it was a lovely sunny day and we picked a lot! i am going to try and make rose hip jam with them for the first time in my life. at this moment the rose hips are soaking in a large tub of water with a bit of salt in it, to try and get every creepy crawly thing out of them (that will be the only hunting i am doing i must admit, the rest was only gathering), tomorrow i will be cleaning and boiling away... hope it all works out, did i already say i never did this before :-)
