Aquaponics

28 Jan

simple Aquaponics

for Aquaponics you just need two containers. In this photo they have used old wine barrels. The man who made these also has used canoes, as Aquaponics can fit in with the aesthetics of your interior. Aquaponics simply are fish whose poop feeds the plants (plants have to be edible) Then the plants clean the water. As with a fish tank you will need a water pump and heater which can be powered by a solar panel. These Aquaponics growing watercress are $595 not including installation. Perfect for a urban kitchen garden and self maintaining. I am going to The Bohemian in Melbourne who Harvest their Fish, herbs and salad leaves from Aquaponics. I will post what I think with some pics.

Ideas for cured meats

27 Jan
Coppa, sopressa, paradise pears, mustard fruits and red vein sorrel

Coppa, sopressa, paradise pears, mustard fruits and red vein sorrel

Coppa and Sopressa are great Italian cured meat
Hot, sweet and with a surprising depth of flavour, Mustard fruits can be used in sauces, cheese plates and especially with cured meats
Paradise pears are a new favourite of mine, little one bite wonders.
Red vein sorrel is lemony and its sharpness gives any cheese or cured meat a nice kick
