Plants + Pantry Glossary

A note from Karina ...

This section is a cross-pollination of ● a how-to glossary ● knife skills ● cooking techniques ● seasonal eating ● botanical benefits ● herbal materia medica ● gardening books. Mixing in traditional elder wisdom, modern techniques, and creative ideas with my understanding from experience working with plants and food as medicine…

Sharing these pages to help us all understand plants & seasonal foods better is a dream come true! Decades of cooking, eating & exploring food and flavours, along with many wise and wonderful foodies, farmers, plant people, practitioners and authors, have helped create this content.   

Plants are great teachers! We can always learn something new, even from old friends we’ve known for years. Growing, cooking, eating through the seasons, and learning about plants and their healing powers is an adventure. I hope you have fabulous fun. K 💚🌱
