Resistance is Edible

Rhubarb at Bealtaine Cottage

The austerity that is being enforced upon us all makes me very angry indeed…for I know how manufactured it all is!

As an act of rebellion against the banks, government and rotten corporations I have turned to the land, one of the last vestiges of freedom that we, as a people, have.

Canned Rhubarb in the kitchen of Bealtaine CottageCreating food, from what is supplied in abundance from Nature, is as defined an act of rebellion, in these dark days, as can be found.

Food which will last long past the fruitfulness of summer and autumn…canning is a skill worth learning!

Stewed Rhubarb for crumbles, ice cream, yoghurt, pies and cakes!

Copper Beech, Euphorbia and Rosa Canina at Bealtaine CottageSpending a little time yesterday canning some of the Rhubarb harvest has given me the impetus to save and store as much as possible this year.

Pear blossom in the permaculture gardensForaging will play a role in this Resistance too, ensuring that all walks will allow a little something to be added to the store.

Permaculture Tunnel at bealtaine CottageThe store includes all that will be of benefit, including fuel, as the hedgerows are littered with dead wood ideal for kindling.

Nothing like MacDonalds!Resist, eat well and be healthy!
