Leeks & Celery

I harvested these lovelies today in the October sunshine and made a vegetable stock with the upper leek leaves and the outer celery stalks. I then made an amazing soup with roasted leeks, potatoes and a garden acorn squash ... some carrots too, not to mention the delicious wisdom of fresh sage. I adapted this "recipe," using what I had on hand. It was a perfect meal to close this perfect autumn day.

Horseradish

I harvested, blessed and bathed the lovely garden roots.
I peeled their skins.
I chopped the roots and placed them lovingly in my very, very old food processor.
I gave them a whirl, added some infused viola apple cider vinegar and sea salt and gave them a few more whirls.

I packed it in a jar and placed it in the refrigerator and there it will please me for months to come!
