Natural Organic gluten free Sesame & pumpkin seeds snack delicacy


Naturalpumpkin-sesame-seeds-delicacy-2017-2-1

This recipe is even easier than the last one I just posted.
No nuts to crack open.
In my twenty plus years in macrobiotic I was taught that sesame seeds give more calcium to the body than milk considering that milk gives but takes a lot away in the process, & pumpkin cleans out the liver.
This might give you the extra incentive to try out these recipes considering it’s a perfect alternative to the ready made junk we all use today.

Enjoy it! Let me know, I’d very much appreciate the feedback:)

Ingredients.
———–

1. 2 Tbsp. Organic whole sesame seeds (you can use the regular white one too)
2. 1 Tbsp. Organic rice syrup (honey or any other sweetener)
3. 1 Tbsp. fresh organic ginger juice (that’s optional. I don’t always have the patience to grate & squeeze out the juice but I like the sharp edge it gives to it)

Method.
——

Roast the seeds on small fire on high for 30/50 seconds stirring it all the time as it can easily burn.

Put on plate let it cool, place in paper cupcake holders & serve!
Enjoy it with a hot cup of tea coffee or herbal beverage ­čÖé

Our harvest & preparing for winter…

Today it started to freeze… I had to quickly bring in the last green tomatoes to go on riping indoors & try to protect the plants by wrapping them up with thin plastic sheets.
Without knowing if I was doing the right thing I cut the leaves & put them around the root to keep the heat assuming the plants needed all their energy to stay alive.
As we have many gardeners out there I’d like to ask if I did the right thing or did I weaken them by taking it off & is plastic enough to stop them from freezing as I have no place for the portable greenhouses suggested by other bloggers?
Here are photos of our “garden” & of our seeds drying system ­čśë

I have seven tomato plants in my balcony this year & finally have results! The tomatoes I thought would never come out, did just that!
Years of experience & mishaps have made this possible. My first plant was grown indoors & took nine months to give one tomato… you can check the link here https://oawritingspoemspaintings.wordpress.com/2012/12/22/my-self-grown-tomato-2011/
This time round I was wiser & knew I had to look out for our “friends” the green flies which I have been doing & removing nearly every day.
I was so crazy over the sight of these beauties that I took close ups of each tomato in order to be able to share our hard earned miracles with all of you!
Posted bellow are the photos from beginning to end.
I hope you’ll enjoy the process ­čÖé

P.S

In my last photo you can see my only surviving squash out of many shoots, my onions that had been forgotten & had germinated in the kitchen (!) carrots that I tried to grow from carrot tops (YouTube advice) but that just died ­čśŽ a few green pepper plants & on the extreme left a plant that people wanted to throw out that I rescued…
