Peripatetic philomaths…focusing on what's really important, eating ethically and cleanly, fermenting, foraging/wildcrafting, practicing herbalism, and being responsible stewards of our land. Sharing our photos, musings, and learnings. Still seeking our tribe.
We value roosters here – as flock protectors (though effectiveness varies by rooster), fertilizers of eggs, and, when we have too many, food. We’ve found, over time, that even roosters that may initially seem mild-mannered can become real jerks and we don’t brook jerks on the farm. They go to “freezer camp”.
It’s snowing, a bitter wind is blowing…it just seems like cold weather and hearty soups are made to go together. And what’s better than a delicious, warming stew (made with in-season root veggies) that you can make in your slow cooker? Just toss in all the ingredients and leave it to work its magic! This recipe could easily be made with another protein, like chicken, but I think it’s one of the tastiest ways to prepare rabbit.
I recently waxed rhapsodic about one bowl meals, but they really do deserve to be lauded! Another favorite quick meal of mine is tofu scramble. Easy, flexible, and nutritious, it’s a meal I enjoy on a regular basis.
You can probably tell that I like simple food: easy, with accessible ingredients, and not too many steps involved to make it are ideal – and tasty is a must. I think good, clean food really shines when it’s made simply. That’s why I’m a big fan of this quick but satisfying meal!
With each chicken egg hatch, around half of the chicks will be males. What to do with all of those cockerels? As we mentioned in an earlier post, you must have a plan for them or it can get real, fast: when cockerels’ hormones kick in, they can become a handful.
