Finally got around to making my sourdough by hand this weekend! I usually make it in the bread maker. Made these 2 by hand and a standard wholemeal loaf in the bread maker. Nom nom nom 🍞
Fermenting is one of the best waste saving skills to learn. I'm making apple cider vinegar out of apple peels and cores, and a bit of kombucha vinegar to get it started. This brew is quite happily bubbling away in my pantry.
It's all good, I got this tiny house build under control thanks to my local library and YouTube 😉
Here's a trick for extending the life of your beeswax wraps. My @onatahnewzealand beeswax wraps had been getting some thorough use and weren't looking very photogenic (second photo). I chucked it in the oven on a low heat for a few minutes and voila! Good as new again. I'm using my beeswax wraps to cover my sourdough starter.
Today is a good day to crack in to our office kombucha. I started this ferment last week, and its timing is perfect as we need a mood lifter today 💚 #changethegovernment #greattogether
The next project/ stage of my sustainable living journey has arrived! Check out my latest blog post for more info 🏡
Indian snacks from Bin Inn Takanini. Wasabi peas and bhudja mix, yum! Purchased from the bulk bins in my own jars.
I left a kombucha SCOBY is my letterbox yesterday for @bri.dimattina and them came home to this massive bag of goodies from her garden! I'm pretty excited about that fennel. The silberbeet is massive by the way, I'm thinking pesto might be in the making... Got to love the #sharingeconomy. Someone else I gave a SCOBY to gave me a jar of home picked olives. I really don't expect anything in return as I just want someone to find use in my surplus SCOBY, so this was super generous 💚
Just got back from my sweet as overnight hiking trip and went straight to the @nzgreenparty Maungakiekie Campaign Launch. I'm super lucky to have @chloe.swarbrick as my electoral candidate. Here I am posing with my tote bag I made out of an op shop pillow case, @ashholwell showed me how to screenprint it so it's now emblazoned with a big green heart 💚 (I'm wearing secondhand as usual)
