Burdock Root Combines Healing Power With Earthy Flavor

Burdock Root Combines Healing Power With Earthy Flavor

January 23, 2019

Looking at burdock roots is like looking at soil that has come to life. They are golden brown with the smell and appearance of healthy, nutrient-rich soil.  When cooked and eaten, such as in stir-fries, you wouldn’t expect sweetness to emerge, but their sweet “overtone” is unmistakable.

 

I love eating burdock root just about any way I can get it.  I don’t like growing burdock root in my garden, however, because the next thing you know, you have a burdock-root problem.  Burdock roots spread with a tenaciousness not found in most plants.  The burdock “burrs” apparently were the inspiration for Velcro because of their ability to stick to just about anything, including your pants or your dog.

 

Because it’s best avoided in the garden and rarely appears even in the best health-food stores, it can be challenging to incorporate the detoxification and cell-regenerative properties of burdock root into your daily diet.*  This is where our Burdock Root Powder comes in. 

 

Having been a fan and proponent of burdock since my macrobiotic days four decades ago, now I’m able to harness the power of burdock root almost daily.  I put a teaspoon of our powder in our morning soup, and we have even started using it in salad dressings (see recipe).   Burdock root adds a lovely, earthy flavor to many dishes, thereby highlighting the most important principle behind all our products: the marriage of the healing power of plant foods with incredible flavor.

 

To your health,

Tom

These are challenging times for all of us.  While everyone has deeply held thoughts and feelings that are needing to be expressed, I want to send out two short messages.  First, I would like to ask everyone to join me in imagining the type of world we wish to emerge out of this crisis.  Do we want to create a world of isolation and separation, where neighbor is pitted against neighbor, or do we want a world of connectedness and compassion?

In this time of stress and confusion, I wanted to share a heartwarming story that was made possible by you, our customers.  As I have said, one of our core missions is to help small farms grow, prosper and, if possible, convert to biodynamics.  We just received word this week that Red Range Farm in Pennsylvania has received its official Demeter certification, meaning, it is now a recognized biodynamic farm.

Six Strategies to Keep Your Immune System and Detox Pathways Strong

Clearly, everyone’s attention is on the current crisis going on worldwide.  It is important to remember that our immune system is largely responsible for clearing toxins and “debris” from our cells and tissues. The less burdened our bodies are with toxins, the better we can respond to microbes and other outside pathogens.  With this in mind, here are the six things I do to try to keep my immune system and detoxification pathways as strong as possible.
