Are you guys tired of rhubarb recipes? I hope not. I'm just getting started. :)

I forgot this one from our website - it's an oldie but a goodie. Lavender Rhubarb Lemonade. YUM!

How's about some Rhubarb Ketchup? or, Rhubarb Lavender Jam!

Rhubarb Martini?

So I was reading the She Simmers blog, which I love, and all of a sudden she's talking about how to make spruce-tip infused olive oil. And I was like...woah. TREES! I tend to look down a the ground, when thinking about wildcrafting...looking at leaves, maybe mushrooms. BUT TREES! Yeah. Eat the trees.

Which led to this great blog about wildcrafting spruce (or fir or pine) tips and the million bajillion ways you can use them.

How about a spruce rhubarb cooler?

An Evergreen Martini, or an Alpine Martini? (before you laugh..remember that gin is flavored with juniper berries! same taste family)

And there's loads of recipes for Spruce Beer.

I have alot to learn about wildcrafting from trees....
