Looking for a fun recipe to enjoy during tomorrow’s Conservation Breakfast?
For anyone wanting to get a little fancy with a beverage or a locally inspired scone for Conservation Breakfast, here are a few ideas…
We’re encouraging any coffee lovers who want to get a bit fancy to brew up this herbaceous coffee drink. The Corridor Coffee is infused with the scent of a brisk walk in the Quimper Wildlife Corridor. It’s a great way to warm up on chilly Western Washington mornings! Feel free to substitute hot cocoa or strongly brewed black tea in place of the coffee.
½ cup strong coffee or 1 shot espresso
1 cup whole milk (or non-dairy beverage of choice)
1-2 Tablespoons fir or spruce tip syrup
Whipped cream, to top
For fir or spruce tip syrup:
2 cups water
2 cups sugar
2 cups fir or spruce tips, chopped (alternately, sub in rosemary and/or sage if you aren’t able to forage your own fir or spruce tips)
1-2 Tablespoons lemon juice (optional)
For all you tea lovers, we recommend brewing up this version of a London Fog, done Quimper Wildlife Corridor style. If you don’t have access to fresh nettle, you can buy dried nettle tea to brew, or you can also use your favorite tea of choice! Be careful when handling nettle leaves, they’re referred to as stinging nettle for a reason!
1 cup fresh nettle leaves (or two tea bags of dried tea)
2 cups water
1/2 Tablespoon maple syrup (or sweetener of choice)
2/3 cup milk of choice
Want something a little stronger? We suggest you mix up a Boggy Mary! This is a spicy take on a traditional brunch favorite, perfect to get your blood flowing before a bike ride or jog through the Quimper Wildlife Corridor. We recommend using Midori Farms kimchi, or their pickles for a less-spicy version.
For the Boggy Mary:
4 cups tomato juice
1/2 cup, plus 1 Tablespoon, Midori Farms’ kimchi brine
1/2 cup lemon juice
1 Tablespoon soy sauce
1 Tablespoon fish sauce
1/2 Tablespoon hot sauce (like Tabasco)
1/2 Tablespoon prepared horseradish
1/4 teaspoon celery salt
Pickled cocktail onions
Midori Farms Pickles
It only takes 20 minutes to whip up these healthy scones. We recommend using Organic Elwha River Spelt Whole Wheat Flour from Finnriver Grainery!
1 1/2 cups Finnriver Grainery whole wheat flour (or flour of your choice)
1/2 cup old fashioned oats
3 Tablespoons brown sugar
1 Tablespoon baking powder
Pinch of salt
2 Tablespoons olive oil
1 large egg
1/2 cup buttermilk
