Green. It is so much fun to experiment with natural dyes..you never know what you will get.
My fav book to use for pickling is D.I.Y. Delicious by Vanessa Barrington. I have used many recipes for her book and all have been wonderful. She also includes recipes to go with your pickled and fermented goodies.
AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST ...YOGURT
I made apricot yogurt this time. Making yogurt is pretty easy. Bring 4 cups of milk to a boil until it climbs the sides of the pan then let the milk cool until luck warm to around 95F. Stir in 1 cup plain yogurt. The yogurt cannot have any additives. Then if you want stir in some chopped fruit or jam. Then pit in jars and place in yogurt maker for around 8-10 hours. If you don't have a yogurt maker you can use your crock pot to do this. Just heat your milk as above in the crock pot and add your starter. Afterwards, unplug and put the lid on the crock pot and wrap it in a towel. Let it sit for 8-10 hours. You can put it in your oven (turned off) so that it retains its heat longer.
Well that's it for now. I pretty sure you are not interested in this weeks chores. Some new art work is coming up in the near future. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend shared with family and friends with lots of laughter.
