Chicken of the woods (laetiporus) are popping up!
a sure sign that we are coming out of the peak of summer and going slowly into the best season of all! 🍂
don't get me wrong, summer is an awesome time of year, but there is something to be said about the trade off from going into autumn. this is the time of year when the garden starts giving you all she has and the sun starts being a little more gentle on the soil. the d**n bugs at night start dwindling down, and the squashes & tomatoes are starting to really kick some ass. the woods start giving us more 🍄 the first 🍎 of the year are starting to drop. it's magical.
we are brining these chickens in sea salt, maple sugar, star anise & spices. most likely going to be crispy fried for blt club sandwiches, and the rest will be processed for the winter.
