among the variety of items in our share this week was anise hyssop. my immediate thoughts were, “what the hell is this and how do i use it?” even anise hyssop recipes didn’t turn up too much that was promising, but it did help me to get a sense of how i might use it, as well as that it’s considered both an herb and an edible flower. we’ve been pretty good at limiting our grocery purchases and just using what we get from our share and in our pantry. the one purchase we did make this week was cheese, including a nice hunk of feta in brine (NOTE: this is not an SCD-legal item, so if you’re eating 100% SCD, you can remove the cheese altogether or substitute an SCD-legal cheese like cheddar or parmesan). here’s what i came up with.
peach and anise hyssop salad
- 1 peach
- lots of arugula
- chunky feta (optional; not SCD-legal)
- anise hyssop flowers
- a few juice blackberries
- pumpkin seed oil (or other dark oil)
- fill up your salad container with lots of arugula. chop up a peach and some feta and top the arugula with them. pull the anise hyssop petals off the stem and sprinkle liberally onto the salad.
- in a jar or small container, crush a few blackberries until there is a good amount of juice in the container. if your gut cannot handle seeds, remove the seed chunks and just leave the blackberry juice in the jar. add honey and pumpkin seed (or other) oil and put the lid on tight. shake, shake, shake. the dressing will be thick and smell very fragrant.
- top the salad with some dressing, toss, and eat.
