Nathalie flax (Linum usitatissimum)
3.78 $ 3.78 $ 3.7800000000000002 CAD
Before the introduction of cotton and synthetic fibers, flax held a significant place in the households of yesteryear Quebec. It was used everywhere, from bed linens to socks! And even before that, this plant has quite a history! Flax was probably the first plant fiber to be woven. It is believed to have been first domesticated in the region of the Fertile Crescent. Remains dating back 36,000 years have been found in a cave in Georgia. It was also a preferred textile in ancient Egypt. The fiber produces a flexible, lightweight, absorbent, thermoregulating, and durable fabric, which explains its popularity. The plant is easy to grow, and its delicate blue flowers are quite lovely. The fibers are found in the core of the stem and are extracted through a controlled decomposition process called retting.

The Nathalie flax is part of the flax preservation program

MAINTENANCE AND OTHER CONSIDERATIONS

Harvest one month after flowering, or two weeks after seed capsules have formed.

You can of course try the experiment of eating it fresh, but its taste is less sweet and its texture more fibrous than the varieties that we find on our stalls in summer. On the other hand, it will be excellent for cooking cornbread, polenta or hominy. Old and rare variety, please share!

Tuberous chervil (Chaerophyllum bulbosum)
3.78 $ 3.78 $ 3.7800000000000002 CAD
Despite its name, root chervil should not be confused with aromatic chervil. We do not eat its leaves and its stem which are toxic, but rather its root in the shape of a small spinning top. This forgotten tuber has been cultivated since ancient times in continental Europe. It has a sweet and delicate flavor reminiscent of potato and chestnut. It is eaten cooked, like parsnips, as a side dish or mashed. It is important not to overcook it to prevent its flesh from becoming mealy. It is necessary to wait several weeks after harvest before consuming it in order to allow its flavor to reach its full potential. It is harvested when the leaves begin to turn yellow and fall to the ground. Root chervil seeds have a shelf life of about 1 year.

The root is eaten, not the leaves and stem which are poisonous.
