the harvest

The last few weeks have been busy cause it’s the time to pick all those goodies mother nature has to offer and preserve them for later usage (or at least what’s left of them after eating them fresh from the bushes and trees…) 🙂 well, this year the harvest was quite good so most of it ended up in jams or juices that now fill up to half of my fridge 😛

Did you spot the cool goosh ball that lies low behind the white currants? i found that in the fork of an apple tree o.O apparently my goddaughter or her little sister had been playing with it outside 😀

I made lots of jams this year…regular apple jam, rosehip-applejam, cinnamon-applejam, blackcurrant jelly… and also some juices from apples and white- red- and blackcurrants. The rosehip-applejam turned out a lot nicer than i anticipated (plus it’s packed with vitamins!) so I thought i might share the recipe with you so here you go:


500g rosehips

500g apples

2-3 dl water

500g sugar(if you want the jam to be thicker

you can use the jam sugar that has pectin in it)

Cut and core the apples and rosehips. you can cut the rose hips in half and remove the seeds inside easily with the wrong end of a spoon. Cook them in the water until tender. Add the sugar and let boil for one more minute. Then pour the jam into sterilized jars and cork securely.

There is still some more things to do in the garden, some more food to gather. this time underground though… the beetroot has managed to grow decently this year and i hope to find a few potatoes there as well.

Low carb bread

As i’ve been rolling this low carb lifestyle for a while now there are certain things that i miss in the “old” eating habits. Bread being one of them. One day i bumped into a marvellous recipe which allowed me to put bread back into my life 🙂

  • 2 eggs
  • 1tbsp psyllium fibre
  • 1tbsp almond flour
  • 1 tbsp coconut flour
  • random amount of seeds (i put abt 1 tbsp hemp seeds but you can use what ever you wish)
  • about 100 g cheese (grated)
  • 1,5-2 tsp baking powder

Mix em all together and form your breads on the oven tray. The texture should be quite soft and more liquid than the regular bread dough yet solid enough to not go all flat. You can make it go lighter by adding one more egg or even some natural yoghurt and more solid by adding more almond flour etc. By trying out the different consistencies you can find the one that works best for you. Bake in the oven (225°C) until they get a nice amount of color (this doesn’t take a very long time so be ready 🙂 ).

I always kind of resented meatloaf.  Those biiiiig chunks of tasteless and dry meat, but after a little surfing for cool minced meat recipes i found some cool recipes and combined the best bits to make one surely tasty meatloaf.

  • 400g minced lamb meat
  • an egg
  • 50 g grated cheese
  • 4 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • salt
  • pepper
  • parsley
  • other spices according to your taste

Mix the ingredients well. take half of it and mold it into the bottom half of the loaf.

  • 100g cheese
  • 2 boiled eggs
  • ~8 bacon strips

Peel the eggs and place them and cheese on top of the bottom part of the loaf and put the upper half in place. Form into a nice loaf. Top it with the bacon strips.

And then bake in the oven at 175°C for 30 to 45 min, or until it is nice and ready.

You can serve it with a nice salad and some cottage cheese, for example.

Here’s a little more low carb version of the good ole shepards pie. Instead of mashed potato im using cauliflower and instead of lamb some moose meat. Although there is absolutely no reason why you can’t use the lamb here too, so if you’re into lamb then go for it. Here’s how it goes:

  • 400g minced moose meat
  • 400g cauliflower ( i added some broccoli too to get a nice bit of color)
  • 30 g butter
  • 15 g olive oil for frying the meat
  • 100g grated cheese
  • 4-5 cloves of garlic
  • spices according to taste

Boil the cauliflower bits in salted water until soft, mash them and add most of the cheese, butter and 3 crushed garlic cloves and mix them well. or take a short cut here and just throw them all together without mashing and crushing and use a blender instead:)

Fry the minced meat in olive oil with rest of the garlic and some spices (f. ex. salt, white pepper, chili…)

Put the meat in a dish and next the mash, top it with some cheese and pop it in the oven at 200°C for about half an hour (or until cheese is nice and a little brown here and there).
