Before I start to write a spruce tip salt recipe, let me tell you a little bit about spruce tips.

Did you know you can eat spruce tips? They have the prettiest green color I have ever seen. They taste so good and are packed with vitamin C!  Spruce tips have lemony citrus notes and an herbal quality similar to rosemary.

Spruce tips are available in spring. Here in Europe spruce tip season is usually May or beginning of June. Collect young bright green spruce tips up to two inches / five centimeters long. Sprouts are going to beautifully snap your fingers, but take the scissors to help if you want. 

I really love spruce tips and I use them every spring in my kitchen. I cook with them, I make a syrup, spruce tip honey and also spruce tip salt. Spruce tip salt is great for flavoring grilled steaks, but it is also great for fresh crispy bread, greased with butter :).

By making this salt every year in May, I will commemorate Christmas. The smell of spruce tips in the oven is exactly the same smell as when you bring a Christmas tree to your home.



6 oz / 150 g of young spruce tips, 12 oz / 300 g of salt

Put the salt with spruce tips into the blender and mix finely.

Place wax paper on a baking sheet and proceed to pour out the mixture. Let it dry in the oven at 176 °F / 80 °C for one hour. Spread several times during drying.

Allow to cool and place in a sealed container. Store as a regular salt.

P.S. I apologize for the late posting because here in Europe is after the spruce tip season (you can try this recipe next year), but for example in Australia, the spring begins :).

When the days are not so perfect

When the days are not so perfect I’m in unicorn mode (sometimes).  The days like that are not every day but sometimes they just happen. And you can not get them out of your head. That is when my unicorn mode begins.

That means I crochet unicorns, I draw unicorns, I make breakfast or snack in unicorn colors and so on. This time I made small unicorn head planters, but they can be cute tiny baskets or cozies for your favorite cup or you can name it. I made also unicorn nice cream. Yes,  nice cream. Nice cream is a great alternative to regular ice cream because it is literally made out of frozen blended bananas and THAT IS IT! And believe me, it is soo good!

Why do I do this? Because it helps me. I love unicorns. I love the magical symbol of a unicorn. The unicorn is an ancient symbol of purity and protection, in a modern sense also depicts power, wisdom and eternal life. On the practical level, the unicorn symbol increases sexual attraction but also has healing abilities.

I know, maybe it lives only in my fantasy. But there are a number of circumstances that speak in favor of unicorns, there are also countless facts that make us doubt. Perhaps they are extinct because of their unique horn. But it is also quite possible that they are walking around ponds in the middle of the dark night. Do you think it is possible? Do you believe in unicorns?

Anyway. For me, it brings many positives because I forget my worries, I feel much better and I always make something cute and/or tasty. And I would be more than happy to share my unicorns with you.
