October is a month of harvesting, preserving and turning to our medicinal plant allies as we prepare for the winter. October brings crisp dark greens and bright root vegetables, warming and grounding squashes and the round sweetness that a first frost imparts to all the plants. From rose hips to pumpkins, this month takes us into the deep autumn and the flavors & medicine that come with it.
As always, all recipes contained in this book are gluten, dairy & refined-sugar free with an emphasis on what Beauty is emerging in the month.
I believe food is the link between many worlds: to the past, present, and future, to the medicine plants, to our ancestors; to the seeds and their blooms, and to the healing and thriving that is our birthright.
I have personally experienced the healing power of food and medicine plants, and it is my path and deep joy to share what I have learned over the years in this monthly series that celebrates food in all its delicious beauty!
May these books be a guide for your own deepening relationship to your food, the plant world, and your health.
