One hour of scything a day keeps the psychiatrist away. Or something along those lines. Actually, it's driving me mad at the moment as the technique I thought I mastered is GONE. But you know what, it'll come. In the meantime, let's get some vitamin D in ahead of winter. #paulssonpaleo #paleo #paleoretreat

Cracked open our latest kraut, just a month old. Oh my. Summer kraut can be a bit of a hit and miss, as the hot weather speeds up the fermentation process A LOT. But this one turned out really good, probably because we kept such a close eye on it. #paulssonpaleo #paleo #fermentation #sauerkraut

We've been a bit disappointed with our selfsufficiency progress so far.
Slugs, extended dry weather and very energetic chicks have left some of our vegetable beds a bit beat up. And the grand plans of making sure the soil was covered at all times helped turn our vegetable patch into slug heaven. Farming is a work in progress for us, no doubt...
This week has got us in a pretty good mood though, despite it all. Apart from picking copious amounts of berries (blueberries, red/white/black currants, raspberries), we have found a fantastic source of winter food: celery.
I know. Odd.
It turns out that our favourite organic cabbage farmer Mr T has started growing celery. Stores only want the more solid lower part of the celery, the rest is thrown away. When mamma saw this, she immediately asked if we could collect it. Sure thing! So we brought some sacks and filled them with cut-offs of celery. (This made Mr T giggle...)
Now we've spent the last 6-7 hours or so cleaning and cutting up the stalks and drying the leaves for celery salt. I think we're all feeling pretty thrifty today. And will probably be dreaming of bloody mary's all night long.

I'm making beef heart tonight. It took me pretty much TWO hours to cut up two big hearts.
Cooking takes up a lot of time in this house, but then again, we do almost everything from scratch and it is a conscious choice we made when we moved here.
The nice thing about cooking like this is that nothing goes to waste. Nothing. I guess that is part of the reason cooking is so time consuming.
The meat is enough for two dinners for us. The trimmings are for the cats (they eat almost exclusively raw meat or fish). The fat is rendered to tallow, that we use for frying eggs, meat and vegetables (as I am off all dairy, this is a "necessity"). The scraps that are left after the fat - crispy brown pieces of fat - are salted and eaten like popcorn... Yum!

We had a great time at our Caveman Games today, organised for Johan's stag do (Svensexa). He was an awesome grok dressed in Barbaras (one of our sheep) recently clipped woollen fleece! #PaulssonPaleo #cavemangames #svensexa #stagdo #gutefår #sheep #Paleo #primal
