The first advent saturday is special at the Fyristorg Market. We have some pumpkins left and fermented vegies, but the main attraction is the apple cakes and various kinds of pumpkin pies.

And others have all sorts of Christmas foods and goods.

Last week a 2 year rye miso, this week a 1 year rice miso.

I got a load of swedish grown soybeans from Per Modig via Christian at Stortallens Tempeh. Soybeans is a borderline crop this far north and many years we get nothing but a few Edamame.

These are a bit darker in color and oddly shaped. Perhaps not as good for tempeh, but great for miso. I’ve tried them many times in the past.

Just wash, soak and cook them as usual.

Tomorrow I’ll put together a rye miso.

Our friend Agnes brought us a tree from her horticulture school.

It’s a himalaya birch.

Now it’s in the ground, watered and tied up for support with the best possible horticultural guidance.

Still going strong!

There are only a few vegetables from the garden, but lots of pickles and pumpkins left. Now we are baking small pumpkin pies and this time a savory pumpkin pie to see how that goes. I, for one, was surprised at how delicious they are.

A kilo of french organic soybeans well boiled. 1 kilo rice koji made with Gem Cultures starter. 460 grams seasalt. 2 years fermentation.

It’s Halloween at Fyris Torg Market today.

The winter cabbages were starting to split, so it was high time to make another batch of sauerkraut.
