A long time ago I looked at the ingredients on the back of a mustard bottle because I felt brave enough that I could make my own. I read the ingredients, found them all in my cupboards and began my experiment.
Long story short, it was awful and I gave up the idea until earlier this December while perusing the different fermenting groups on social media. People were making their own mustard and showing me how it was really done as well as how easy it was.
Could it be true?
Could I finally make my own mustard?
It's that time of year where someone comes home sick and like the domino effect we all end up with a cold. It also comes with the change in the weather no matter how many times someone tries to debunk that fact, it's still happening. The weather changes and someone in our house gets a cold, we mend it, life goes on.
Still every year our son Aidan ends up with a nasty bark that doctor's once perscribed steroids to combat and I was determined to find a way to replace that method with something natural and without negative side effects. That's when my readings took me to the Osho root and it's healing properties.
Its common names include osha root, Porter's lovage, Porter's licorice-root, lovage, wild lovage, Porter's wild lovage, loveroot, Porter's ligusticum, bear medicine, bear root, Colorado cough root, Indian root, Indian parsley, wild parsley, mountain ginseng, mountain carrot, nipo, empress of the dark forest, chuchupate, chuchupati, chuchupaste, chuchupatle, guariaca, hierba del cochino or yerba de cochino, raíz del cochino, and washí (tarahumara).
Recipes are going to vary from meals to medicines. It's all about healing from the inside out because we truly are what we eat. What's the point? Well, gardening and foraging for your own foods, shopping local and no processed garbage or pharmaceuticals for what ails you? I think that's enough of point, don't you?
