RE: Sharing some garden pics!
Messy? You'll have a heart attack in my garden! Tongue

I have lots of grape leaves around - how do you make grape leaf chips?

Blueberry shrubs are super - they are well behaved, make a ton of fruit once mature, and their fall color is amazing. What's not to love.

I usually pick the leaves that are young but fairly large, abit bigger than my hand. Make sure they're still bright green, the older, darker ones are still useable but more bitter and woody in texture.

I then wash 'em before brushing on some olive oil and add a dash of garlic, dried herbs, and himalayan pink salt. They go in the oven on a cooking sheet, spaced so there's no overlapping, at 275 degrees F for about 10-12 minutes. They get crispy as they cool.

They have a wonderful tang and are a little chewier than kale chips, but are super delicious and nutritious! Big Grin

Thanks, I'll have to try it. I have grape vines growing over the arbor at the entrance to the garden, and I keep scissors there to snip it back, otherwise it would overgrow the entrance. So I waste a lot of young leaves...

I love the variety with pickled cabbage leaves too.

And stuffed peppers. And dried peppers stuffed with beans... (I might be missing our food a teeny tiny bit. Blush But Brazilian food is awesome, too)

Dunno what Drago the Shepherd is examining there...


Great garden and excellent photo, Dom. Do you have any garden threads of your own? How did I miss this side of you?
