soup is one of those meals that will feed more than the body. it feeds the inner child that wants comfort and love, acceptance and security. it is rainy days on the porch and loving conversations at the table. it is, in one bowl, a thick and lush gift of bounty. it is the bowl that we stand over and breath in deep and give thanks for all that is given, all that is received.
raw summer veggies brings smiles and simplicity, daydreams and freshness. all that energy makes you want to go swimming and sailing, happy and free. we make time to eat, to breathe in the moment. and smile between bites letting out little mmmms and ahhhhs and other cooing sounds for treats grown from earth filled with juicy vibrant love.

homemade dill ‘n garlic pickles
Making delightful, crunchy pickles is a snap!
First, you harvest from your garden or visit your local farmer’s market and select those miniature cucumbers only availble in summer- green wands of juicyness. Second, you hold them to your heart and give thanks to mama nature for these food jewels you love that will love you back. Then, you lovingly wash them and slice them in spears, longways (or discs, its always up to you.) Next, snip some fresh dill from your herb garden, thanking the plant for its offering, and rinse and dry your bundle of flavor. Next, peel some gorgeous garlic (lots!) and place into the bottom of a nice big jar, with the sister dill to keep company. Next, line up the little spears and add some carrot rounds if you wish, for color and crunch. Then, add about 1/4 apple cider vinegar and a teaspoon of Celtic Sea Salt and fill the jar up with pure water, and your love. Lastly, lid the jar and put into the fridge. In-Joy your summer blissing in a couple days.

Cultured vegetables are available commercially at most natural foods stores but I find them a bit pricey and prefer to make them myself and you will too once you know how. It is fun and easy.
1 cabbage, red or white, Nappa or mixture (purple cabbage will turn pink when it ferments) 1 head cauliflower optional Many veggies can be cultured with great success for more nutrition and digestibility. You can use beets which are great for the liver, sea veggies like wakame and arame, kale, collards, apple or red pepper, or other radishes besides daikon, carrots, parsnips, turnips etc Spices and dried herbs add something special: I like caraway seeds, chili flakes, garlic and ginger. Celery juice makes a great brine too. But to just get started, go basic and just try cabbage and water with salt so you get comfy with this first before experimenting.
Clean all vegetables well and then chop or use a food processor to shred everything. Mix vegetables in a bowl. Massage them well with your hands, squeezing them until they begin to release their juices. When your bowl of veggies has been reduced and is sitting in liquid, pack vegetable mix tightly into glass jar(s). When the jars are full with about 1 -2 inches room at the top, use a wooden spoon to pound the mixture down and then add some more veggies. (Always leave 1-2 inches at the top of the jar so the fermented veggies have room to expand. I use 2 quart size jars.) Then add the liquid or brine which is a mixture of good quality Celtic or Himalayan salt, about 2 T and water. I also add a few leaves of cabbage that were from the outside that I could have thrown away- instead they help take up the space at the top and still leave room for expansion. Pour brine over the veggies, leaving breathing room for expansion. Cap tightly and leave at room temp for 2-4 days, then move to the refrigerator for storage. I ‘check in’ every day and release the cap to let the built up fermentation gases escape, and re-seal air-tight. These keep very well and are great to have on hand in the fridge. You can eat them alone as a condiment, or add them to salads, sprouted tortilla wraps, etc. I love them with a little olive oil, some turmeric and dulse sprinkled over top, with avocado. I munch happily away with my chopsticks.
