Wild thyme eco retreat Bulgaria

At this time of year, almost every house in the village has strings of red peppers hanging from every available sunny place.   Such a pretty sight.  When they are all dried by mid to late September, they will be milled to make a delicious fresh paprika.


Foraging for mushrooms

July 19, 2013



We’ve just had a fun morning foraging for mushrooms in the forest with Mustafa.  The kids loved it.  There are so many varieties of wild mushrooms, from chanterelles to horse mushrooms to ‘mamatarkas’.  They were really delicious cooked in garlic and served on toast for lunch!
