Spicy, colourful, delicious and helpful!

 I love to make my own vinegar dressings. A had to wait a few good months for my main ingredient to grow, but now it's show time!

Known as Nasturtium, it is not only a beautiful plant to have in your garden, it is perfect to use in in your kitchen. You can make beautiful dishes with this amazing plant. From soups to salads the field is open for all kind of experiments.  All parts of the plant are edible and taste very good. A spicy fresh treat. 

So a few weeks ago I was picking flowers and leaves. You need to let them stay in salt water before you start using.  

You can make different colour vinegar by simply picking the colour you like. I was using all ( mix of colours and the leaves) 
In one empty bottle I was pouring basic vinegar and the flowers. You let them stay in a dark place for a while. After a few weeks you will get a deep red or orange vinegar dressing. It has a spicy taste. 

Not only that you can use it for your food I also use it for my face. It cleans all the unwanted black spots and gives you a nice clean face feeling.
