Sorry, birds, but sunflower seeds are delicious! We’re waiting for the heads to dry and then we’ll roast the seeds in the oven.
Earlier this week we discovered that our backyard quince trees have fruit for the first time. Our own fruit trees on our small homestead, how exciting!
We understand that quince aren’t really all that good for eating fresh, but I have read that they are high in natural pectin, so I can make quince jam without added pectin. We’ll only have a handful this year, but if we get lucky, maybe in coming years we’ll have enough to make quince wine. We do love our fruit wines.
We are thrilled to add quince and sunflowers to our food supply. Any food we can forage is something we don’t have to buy. What tastes better than homegrown? Homegrown and FREE!
