Tiramisu using fruit bread

Tiramisu using fruit bread

The combination of fruit bread, pears and figs is the basis for a wonderful, autumn – or almost pre-Christmas – dessert. With this tiramisu you sweeten every rainy, foggy Sunday afternoon and after building the first snowman of the season, the numb fingers that arise can be thawed in a jiffy while eating this dessert.

 
Homemade Raspberry Vinegar

Some people claim that vinegar is unhealthy. Acetic acid attacks the gastric mucosa and irritates the gastrointestinal tract. And these claims are correct, of course. Yes, of course, if you drink several litres of vinegar daily, it simply has nothing left to do but corrosively attack all of your internal organs.

Vinegar helps against constipation and heartburn; it regulates your blood sugar level, protects against calcifications, normalises cholesterol levels and provides the body with minerals and vitamins...yes, vinegar is one of the oldest natural medicines we know. It also tastes great, especially homemade raspberry or strawberry vinegar. Here’s how you can quickly prepare your own:

 
Three Lemons For the Sick Person

Today I feel ill: I have a sore throat, headache, a slight fever, I am tired from the ibuprofen and exhausted from the antibiotics. I have zero concentration and inspiration…The Lubera garden newsletter, however, must get out punctually. What should I do? I’ll go to the supermarket to buy lemons...

 

Gooseberries: a fleeting British treat

Gooseberries: a fleeting British treat

We often hear about fruits and vegetables that were cultivated by the rich in their walled gardens, with an army of gardeners handing over produce to the cook, but gooseberries have a different history in the UK. They weren’t popular with the rich, but instead were keenly cultivated by cottage gardeners.

 

SOW A VEGETABLE SOUP

SOW A VEGETABLE SOUP

This year I will sow vegetables myself. I only need a few empty pots, e.g. a propagation greenhouse or other suitable container in which the seeds can be spread. Afterwards a little patience is required. And love. Yes, with some love it usually works quite well.

 
Have A Figgy Christmas!

A super tasty fig treat for your table

We know all about the 'Figgy Pudding' as relayed in Christmas songs and tales, but we are not sure how many people have actually eaten one!

Our Lubera recipe wonder woman, Pascale Treichler, recommends the following. Take the figs and wash and dry them. Cut into the middle fig crossways and place in each cut a slice of blue cheese (example: Rochefort or Gorgonzola). Place the figs in a baking dish and bake in the oven until the cheese starts to flow.

 
Blackcurrant leaves and grandmother’s tea

Here is again something that had never occurred to me before, only after I started to write down my memories of my grandmother’s garden for you: I never realised that my grandmother never drank black tea. The black tea tradition in Eastern Europe is very strong. And everyone knows what a samovar is. My grandmother had one that was electric. But it just stood on top of the cabinet in the living room, where it presented its fully unused self. This metal container used to boil water was never used because my grandmother has always made tea from blackcurrant leaves and branches, raspberry leaves and a little bit of mint. She dried the leaves for use in the winter months. Nowadays you can just freeze the fresh leaves. The best time to collect them for this is in June.

 

Strawberry Tiramisu

Strawberry Tiramisu

Have you ever harvested ripe strawberries from a garden? My plants are just starting to bloom. Every year I yearn for the fresh fruit and the amount in the garden is not nearly enough for our appetites. So I drive to strawberry fields and fill bowls to freeze for later.
Before freezing, I puree the berries with a little sugar and fill the mixture in a freezer bag. This allows us to have strawberries throughout the year and we eat them, for example, with yogurt.
But fresh strawberries are naturally a hit at our house.
A variant of this food I learned about in Holland: strawberry bread.
You can buy a slightly sweet braided loaf. Spread butter on the slices and put finely chopped strawberries on top. Then sprinkle some vanilla sugar over them. This sounds like a delicious breakfast, doesn’t it? But today I want to tell you about strawberry tiramisu:

I make portions in glasses. Do you know why? If not everything is eaten up completely, I can freeze the rest. Have you ever eaten half frozen tiramisu? It’s terrific, I tell you!

 

Rose liqueur

Rose liqueur

My grandmother had two large tea rose bushes. All real genuine roses are usually edible (unsprayed of course, from your own garden). My grandmother's tea roses were particularly delicate and especially fragrant. And the most important thing was that the roses were extremely healthy – because the leaves of tea roses have a unique bactericidal effect that remains even after thermal processing (i.e. cooking). The recovery from a cold was accelerated, the immunity was enhanced and stomatitis was defeated.

 

Rhubarb Syrup

Rhubarb Syrup

The season starts soon and you can start earlier if you now put an unused flowerpot over your rhubarb plant(s). This warms the plant and the plant also wants light, so it grows towards the hole in the bottom of the pot. As soon as the frost has passed, you can take the pot off the rhubarb and begin the harvest, while the other plants that had no protective cover over the winter will need a little longer until the stalks can be harvested.

 

Spring Detox Smoothie

Spring Detox Smoothie

Smoothies are in. But you certainly knew that – there is no longer a way to avoid it. In my circle of friends, almost half have a special smoothie machine. I do not have one and you also don’t need one to make this drink.

 

Sweet violet cream for scars

Sweet violet cream for scars

With a biker and craftsman in the family, a scar treatment cream is a MUST. The guy permanently comes home with injuries. Looking for a good ointment, I came across this recipe.
