Lunch at Seven Day Road



Chestnut and Green Tea Ice Cream

O. M. G.

Ingredients: Chestnuts, Green Tea with just-like-sugar (reduced), Cream

Chocolate, coconut, macadamia slice.

Rough up your macadamia nuts with a pestle so they are no bigger than halves,

with plenty of smaller chunks but not too much crush.

Arrange in a long thin rectangular metal baking dish – I used an old metal ice tray base.

You could use any vessel really, but this works well.

Melt equal parts 85% chocolate and butter and 100% coconut (creamed)

In that order, plus splash of vanilla

Pour over nuts to cover the nuts.  Chill.  Snap into pieces.


Homemade Mayonnaise

Wendell Berry quote

“People are fed by the food industry, which pays no attention to health, and are treated by the health industry, which pays no attention to food.”

Even worse, a health industry that pays attention to food at the prompting of the food industry… ie. all those professional health workers currently recommending low fat products like light milk,  whole grains, vegetable oils and margarines.


2 and a half litres of tea (I used 4 teabags of English Breakfast) and one cup of sugar, dissolved into hot tea.

It’s cooling on the bench in a tall jar.  When it’s cooled I’ll add the kombucha mushroom (in a cup of leftover kombucha) and I’ll cover it with cloth.  It can stay on the bench, warm and out of direct sunlight.

Just another delicious lchf breakfast.
