The Self-Sufficiency Challenge days 17 - 19: potato and lovage soup

potato and lovage soup Aug 13

A pile of potaotes to use up, lots of lovage growing in the herb garden and a large venison bone to make into stock. The ideal conditions to make potato and lovage soup. We stretched it out to do three main meals for both of us and lunches for me (David had sandwiches instead). The soup is now finished.

The cherry pie I made last week left us with a lingering need to have something sweet. The blackberries are now ripening in the hedgerows so I picked some yesterday afternoon and made them into a pie. A spoonful of our honey was added to slightly sweeten it. blackberry pie Aug 13
