Happy New Year!

We wish everyone a happy, healthy new year!!


This year for solstice, which was like our New Year, the women in our family put their hands & hearts together to make our second batch of miso. It’s becoming a yearly tradition for us & one that helps keep us healthy & happy...we love miso & family! It’s so nice when life seems hectic or we’re feeling icky, how something so simple as making ourselves a bowl of this miso soup can change everything...
 

We also made kadomatsu. It’s a simple & beautiful new year’s altar. We love Japan...their food & nature-loving spirit inspire us. 

sorrel

Jamaican Sorrel tea...when Sorrel was exploring the Caribbean she learned how to make this Christmas time tea. A combo of sorrel blossoms from plants she grew with seeds she brought from Jamaica, cinnamon she gathered from her last visit to Bali, orange peel & ginger from her garden...all brewed together. It’s a lively, festy drink. Makes you want to move your dancing feet. Warming & a bit bubbly. Oh so yummy.
