RECIPE: Hawthorn and Artichoke Fruit Leather
In one of my recent posts, I mentioned that I had been berry picking. This is what I made with the hawthorns: HAWTHORN & ARTICHOKE FRUIT LEATHER
Fruit leather is fruit that has been dried using an oven or a dehydrator
The recipe is taken from the Grow your own drugs book

Fresh hand picked hawthorns
This is what it looks like when it comes out of the oven. It has a leathery appearance and I admit does not look that appealing at first glance BUT it does taste good! When cooled down it is cut in to strips.
A healthy tasty dried fruit snack, ideal in between meals!
I bought a couple of things online recently....from bloggers.
A pretty pink bird from Devina at The Granny Fairyglade
Two lovely lavender scented sacks from Hen at HenHouse Emporium
By the way, I went back for the jug that matches the glasses. Thank you for all your lovely comments about them!
