I do use the pits for alcohol, but there's a lot of conflicting information about safety, so I leave it up to others to make their own decisions.

Alas, I've had really bad luck making fruit scrap vinegar in the summer; I think it may be too hot in my apartment. :(

Fennel seeds are great for digestion! I'll often chew on some after dinner as well as teas and bitters.

I use borage flowers for garnish, and make teas and tinctures with the leaves. And cocktails, of course. :)

I don't do anything fancy! Just chop up fruit and throw in a small handful of chopped or torn herbs (usually just one herb at a time). Sometimes I add a drizzle of homemade elderflower cordial.

It is possible, although I have not tried it yet myself. The Art of Fermentation has some guidance.

I forgot to mention that a tea with just one or two of the ingredients can work wonders, too! So if you're like ccp mbd or Jaclyn P and can't tolerate peppermint or chamomile, feel free to try your own variation with just fennel or ginger, for example.

Turning Entertaining Into Sharing as I Host My First Brunch of the Year Kitchen Diary: Emily in Los Angeles

Yes! I totally agree that it doesn't necessarily have to be brunch -- just start simple and find what works for you, your family, friends, and space. :)

I haven't used canned myself, but you could certainly give it a try. You would still need to add water, but perhaps 1 cup at a time until you reach the desired consistency.

The chia should be measured after grinding.

I haven't tried this particular recipe with flax, but I'm pretty sure it would work since the chia is basically an egg substitute, and flax can be used in similar ways.

I find that the texture of dried lima beans is much more smooth and buttery than frozen. I highly recommend Rancho Gordo lima beans, though regular grocery store ones work, too.
