Funny Farm

A fearsome foray into my fiber follies. I talk about weaving, knitting, spinning and dyeing. Some chatter about the sheep, goats, pigs and chickens.

Happenings at Chez Funny Farm


Chop off a honkin' part of the root of a horseradish plant and wash well. Peel said root.








peeled roots









set up a work station in front of a window with a large fan venting OUT. Your eyes will thank you.










Grate the root into a food processor then put in a chopping blade and chop the grated root. Add vinegar until the horseradish is smooth.
Now go buy a few steaks and grill until the beef can only say "moo". Serve with your Powerful Horseradish".



Collect the sap from about 30 trees over a period of weeks and pour into containers located in someone's neat and tidy kitchen.




Mr Princess proceeds to drive his to drive his Betrothed nuts and brings in no less than 9, varying sized containers into the kitchen (where she had been keeping a variety of large weaving tools). The containers were filled with sap, sugar, yeast, and in the large white container (formerly a feed bin) with corn, sap and yeast and sugar.




Bubble, bubble, toil and trouble.........................

Oh, I miss my horseradish patch! I always just did the grating outside -- love your fan-out idea.

We just bought our onion and potato sets - and Ian decided to add horseradish to the mix. I'm just how sure how this is going to play out. My eyes are watering....

What is Mr. Princess up to?? Is this a sourdough starter or homebrew beer? (beer with maple??)
