  Just bottled up a tremendously successful dry hopped wild mint mead. This one is a winner having used Light Cellar hops and honey as well wild mint from my garden. I made the mead plain with a wildflower honey and 3/4 of the way through the ferment added fresh wild mint to sit in the bottle, then strained that out after 2 days and added the dry hop cones for several days for their flavour to come out. strained it and bottled it today. and it is mighty fine! I'll be aging this one away for my November Mead Making class - if you're around and want to learn how to make mead and have a taste, join me.

Learn about 4 very common wild weeds that have wonderful health properties that are delicious and have a surprising history you will hear Blaine Andrusek share in this video. My guess is you already know at least 2 of them and possibly even all 4 but what this video offers is more insight into them, including their history, a little bit of botany as well as how each of these weeds can easily be found, identified, used and enjoyed right away! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7HA1Kg-_BJs...
