The gooseberries growing near the garden have ripened to a lovely ruby red color. I wonder if they are domestic gooseberries, as the wild bushes on the trail have ripened to a deep purple color?I mixed the red gooseberries together with the wild gooseberries from the trail and made the jam.Savory Gooseberry Jam with Bay Leaf1 cup water3 cups sugar (I only used 1-1/2 cup of organic sugar for more tartness)4 cups gooseberries6 small whole bay leaves, fresh or driedHeat the water on the stove. Mix the sugar in until it is dissolves and add the bay leaves. Allow the mixture to boil down for about 10 minutes.Add the berries and allow to boil, stirring frequently, for 20 minutes, or until mixture has thickened. Skim off the foam if needed. Remove the bay leaves and place one bay leaf into the bottom of each sterilized jar. Pour jam into jars to within 1/4 inch from the top of the jar. Mix the jar around with a chopstick or small spoon to release any air trapped under the bay leaf. Seal. Makes 6 half pints.I also made another batch of raspberry jam, started a jar of raspberry vinegar and froze more raspberries for winter smoothies and sauces.Raspberry Vinegar1 cup raspberries500 mL white wine vinegarPlace raspberries in jar and crush them with a wooden spoon. Pour in the vinegar and seal. Keep on your counter for 1-3 weeks (longer for a stronger vinegar). Strain and pour into a decorative bottle.Note: I poured a whole new bottle of white wine vinegar into the jar. Then I washed the label off of the bottle (it’s a pretty bottle) and will use it to store the raspberry vinegar when it is done with a new cabinorganic label. Speaking of labels, come back tomorrow and I will show you how I make mine.Below, raspberries for freezing.I just had to end with this shot of Lucy, taken today. She has a ‘hot spot’ on her leg which is really itchy. To keep her from licking off the medicine, I have made her wear a shirt for the past three days. Today’s shirt matches the berries. My neighbor L, just dropped off an Elizabethan collar for her and I will use it tonight. Good night, everyone! 28 Thursday Jul 2011 Posted by cabinorganic in forage, wild berries ≈ 4 Comments Tagsblack currant, Canada Gooseberry, forage, gooseberry, Northern Black Currant, Northern Red Currant, raspberries, red currant, Ribes hudsonianum, Ribes oxyacanthoides, Ribes triste, Saskatoon Berries, Swamp Red Currant, wild berriesThis morning, our daily hike turned out to be another excellent forage! I was on the look out for more red currants and was not disappointed. I found a thick patch of red currant shrubs growing along a stream on the trail that were full of berries. Nearby, I noticed some black currant shrubs as well, whose berries were just starting to ripen! I love the smell of black currants. As if that wasn’t enough excitement for one day, I later discovered some early Saskatoon berries and raspberries just in front of the cabin while checking the mail. Berry heaven!When I got home, I did some interesting research on the genus Ribes (which includes currants), and in particular the three wild varieties that I am currently harvesting. In case you are interested, I will briefly share what I am learning in this post. By the way, as I write this, I have already sorted the berries and have gently cooked the red currants. At this very moment, they are straining (overnight) in a jelly bag. Come back tomorrow to see what I have decided to do with the juice…Swamp Red Currant (Ribes triste)There are about 15 different species of wild red currants growing in Canada and the northern United States.  Also known as Northern Red Currant or Wild Red Currant, this shrub can be found in Boreal North America growing in moist, open woods, often on the banks of streams and preferring gravel or sandy soil.Ribes triste is a small woody shrub, up to three feet tall, with three-lobed leaves. Unlike its relative, the gooseberry, this shrub does not have thorns. Small red berries grow in clusters and are very tart, making them excellent for jams and jellies. Berries are ready for harvest July through August.Uses:Northern Black Currant (Ribes hudsonianum)Black currants are very similar to red currant shrubs having the same three-lobed leaves and berries also forming in clusters. Black currant plants have a characteristically strong scent. The skin of the berry is thin and translucent, similar to that of grapes. The pulp is fragrant, tart, juicy, and contains tiny seeds.Uses:Canada Gooseberry (Ribes oxyacanthoides)The gooseberry shrub differs from red and black currant shrubs in that it is usually larger and very thorny, which makes it difficult to harvest. The leaves are distinctly five-lobed and the berries grow singly instead of in clusters. There are about a dozen species of wild gooseberries that grow in Canada and the northern United States.Gooseberries vary in color and may be yellowish, green, whitish, or reddish in color, with a downy or smooth skin. The flesh of the gooseberry contains many small edible seeds and is tart, sometimes with a bitter aftertaste. As a rule, the smaller the fruit, the higher the acidity. Before eating or cooking, be sure to remove the stems and tails.Uses: Nutrition Information for red currants, black currant and gooseberries:Calcium, (high in) fiber, iron, manganese, phosphorous, potassium, vitamins A, B1 (thiamine), B3 (niacin), B5, C. Medicinal Use of Berries and Leaves:According to Beverley Grey (whom I had the privilege of meeting a few weeks ago at the Alberta’s First Herb Gathering), Swamp Red Currant, Northern Black Currant and Canada Gooseberry have these medicinal qualities:anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antiseptic, astringent, digestive, diuretic, laxativePlease see Beverley’s excellent brand new book, The Boreal Herbal: Wild Food and Medicine Plants of the North for more information on these and other wild plants. Note: Wikipedia adds that Blackfoot Indians used black currant root for the treatment of kidney diseases and menstrual and menopausal problems. Cree Indians used the fruit as a fertility enhancer to assist women in becoming pregnant. Currant root and seeds are high in gamma-Linolenic acid (GLA), which has been clinically verified as an effective treatment for pre-menstrual syndrome.

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); As of recently every weekend seems to come with tons of material for me to write about the following week. And this weekend was no exception. Hell it was even better as I got menswear-topic-requests from none other than men. Ha.What do you say, what do you know? Our boys really do give a shit about what they buy and wear. Or maybe… such as my brother so bravely admitted, have no idea what to buy, hence the plea for a woman’s style guidance. Thank you. 😉Come to think of it, the men I know seem to be less style clueless rather than the opposite, which only makes me throw them a great kudos and feel a bit of a bloody ignorant trying to play the menswear stylist here. Ah… worst case scenario, I have no clue, they have no clue, and it’s all a case of the blind leading the blind, with a bit of an eye-candy for us gals.So what the hell, let’s talk about WHAT MEN MUST WEAR THIS WINTER TO LOOK HOT AS HELL?No. Not their birthday suits. (well, that’s a bit debatable). COATS. Winter coats. Coats. We’re talking coats.The all-is-in rule applies to menswear as well, and so do quite a lot of coat styles generally. 2015 winter is either about men looking super sharp in classic coats, looking lumersexual cool in parkas or duffle coats, or swag as hell in fur coats. You do need a LOT of swag to pull off a fur coat as a man. Unless you’re Kanye West. Then you don’t need to give a shit. 1. CLASSIC COATS. The hottest styles here are the double breasted ones, in slim cut, with a Cantona collar. Pop it like it’s hot baby!Midi lengths seem to be the most ubiquitous right now, yet shorter styles are sill OK. Highlander inspired length can look so cool, but a lot of guys can’t pull that off.Listen boys… when it comes to winter coats in 2015 fuck all the ‘how-to-wear-rules’ and wear them with anything. If the coat fits and you like it, mix it, match it, and style it to your look and moods until it longer fits a style label.The days of coats and suits, parkas and tennis shoes are long gone. Today you can wear a smart suit with a parka coat, and a sporty style with an elegant coat.2. The DUFFLE COAT is a massive trend in 2015 winter. It’s that coat in between the classic winter coat and the parka, usually has a hood, wooden buttons, square pockets and has a well defined cut and design.Style wise it’s one of the most versatile coats cause it easily blends with any look from office suits to weekends laid back casual styles.Why its massive comeback? I’ll blame this one on the lumbersexual trend that’s going on strong right now. You know: laid back men, professionals, with beards, who love to sip on a certain kind of beer or whiskey when out with friends, usually hot, dressed well, always casual, yet quite trendy, in flanel shirts or chunky sweaters… You get the picture.3. The PARKAS. One of my favorite coat styles for men is still going strong this season. Again it goes with anything, but what I think it instantly does – is add coolness to a look. In either black or the classic military green the moment you wear one you look like you know your shit style wise.High side pockets. Fur lined hood. It don’t get no better.TIP: how to pick the right size? (for any coat actually). A great coat always has the perfect shoulder width. If the shoulders fit (not too small, and never slouchy) it’s a the one.4. FUR COATS. Okay, this is a tricky style for men, I’ll give you this, but those who dare to, will definitely be making a style statement and owning it.OR if a full fur coat is too much… try a vintage style coat, that is just insanely HOT on men. You know the ones, from back in the day, that have complete fur lining underneath and a full long fur lined collar that you usually pop. SIGH.OR just stick to a fur lined collar or hood on any winter jacket be it a parka or a classic coat.And now more pics. If you already have one of these coats, well… stop bragging. You probably already know you got swag. If you don’t have one of the above… you got some serious thinking to do.Riiiight. 😉Hi,I love this coat. Could you tell me who the name of the designer and where I might be able to buy it? Thank you.http://thefashiontag.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/12/men-coats-styles-winter-2015-3.jpgI like a man who wear black pea coat,these pea coat showed in your post are too expensive to me, I‘d like to introduce a cheap and high quality fashion shop “WantDo fashion store”,come here to visit !www.clotheshow.comwhen the new rounded heel slims down the shape for a feminineThe Nike Air Max 90 Premium Running Shoes are a classic appear for the small dudes toes!Featuring a suede and metallic bouclé material, these wedges are designed to be comfortable and stylish whether you’re strolling around downtown or hanging out with friends.Every closet needs a pair of shoes that’s warm and cozy, so we took our Classics and added a knit pattern and faux shearling lining.winter jacket MONCLER in a position to stand via all kinds ofWow great wholesale mens coats ! Nice outfitsAny idea on where to get some of the coats here?Hey, I just read this, because I know it’s currently one if my biggest style weaknesses. Because I know my leather/bomber jacket, even if layered with scarfs and sweaters is no where near as sexy and in season as a badass winter coat. My question is, what’s sexier and more timeless. The classical or the vintage and do you have any websites or brands that you suggest with a mid price range?Great post! I was wondering what brand/ style name is the mid length grey coat? …Under the second picture of the mid-length coat?Love to read your posts!
