The first try at making lefse turned out ok, though some things maybe are better left for purchasing at the market. The best result might have been the smell and experimenting with different ingredients to roll up in the lefse.
I really had no idea what I was doing, but made the dough, rolled it out as thin as I could, then cooked in the pan until golden and warm.
Ok, these are really great anytime! While persimmons are an autumnal fruit, the dried version works any time of year. We found these incredible morsels at the San Luis Obispo farmer’s market from Mt. Olive Organic Farm Just dried persimmon and not a dab of refined or added sugar to be found.
Chop up some persimmons and stir into a mixture of gluten-free flours
Mix together about 1C each of buckwheat and oat flours
Tbsp of baking powder
Hefty shakes of cinnamon, and a few gentle shakes of nutmeg if you’re nice
Mix together with enough warm water to form a paste/doughlike consisency
Plop onto a parchment lined baking tray, oiled with coconut oil
Bake at 200C for about 10min or until cooked the way you like
Serve with Matcha latter, earl grey or coffee. Also great with a dab of yoghurt.
Stinging nettle is often considered a weed, something that grows in abundance in the countryside. Something you don’t want to touch, but if you can get your hands on the dried stuff-make yourself a nice tea.
A heaping spoonful will make a regular cup, but for a more serious dose of the healthy stuff, dump a bunch of leaves into a big bowl and pour boiling water over the top. Let sit overnight and store the tincture in the fridge or on a cool pantry shelf for a day or so.

Alleviate hay fever and other common under-the-weather feelings. Stinging nettle supports healthy liver juncture, which helps to regulate hormones-making this tincture useful for addressing several mild ailments and malaise, and making your body feel more in balance.
