Balsam Fir, Chaga, and Chocolate

by Sarah Lawless

We may not always think of winter as a time to forage, but some very delicious treats can be made with winter-harvested botanicals. Two of my favourite things to wild harvest and cook with in the winter are balsam fir and chaga mushroom. You may not believe it until after you taste my recipes, but these two Eastern Ontario botanicals can go very well with chocolate! Recipes include: balsam fir hot cocoa, balsam fir syrup, balsam fir liqueur, and chaga hot cocoa.
