Between dropping things, knocking things over and boiling over local raw milk for the yogurt I started, I somehow managed to make a delicious compote of dates, figs, raisins and rose hips. I just used what dark dried fruit I had on hand and tossed in a tablespoon-r-so of crushed rosehips and simmered them all together in a little water until softened. Then, I gave it all a gentle whirl in the blender to make a lovely, delicious and nutritious spread to be used for all manner of things in the days ahead.
Then, as I brought some local honey to simmer, I cut and enjoyed the fruit of an organic orange and set to slicing the peels nice and thin. I placed them in a clean jar and poured the hot honey over them. Just a few hours later and it's already quite good, but will improve by leaps and bounds over the coming days.
Both of these creations were inspired by and adapted from recipes in Susun Weed's book, New Menopausal Years - The Wise Woman Way.
That's what I made today.
