Eat Local (2017) Official Trailer

In a quiet countryside farmhouse, Britain’s vampires gather for their once-every-fifty-years meeting. Others will be joining them too; Sebastian Crockett, an unwitting Essex boy who thinks he’s on a promise with sexy cougar Vanessa; and a detachment of Special Forces vampire killers who have bitten off more than they can chew. This is certainly going to be a night to remember… and for some of them it will be their last.

Thanks to the unseasonably warm sun we’ve been having, the gold moss stonecrop is is perfect for harvesting right now as a wild edible in Northeastern Ontario. It is a tiny, juicy, succulent moss-like plant growing on large, sun-exposed rocks. Stonecrops are normally sweet and pleasant, but the gold moss variety is spicy as in hot! Treat it like fresh jalapeño or a Thai chilli. We want to try to make a dried cayenne powder substitute (might be more like wasabi though) and also a fermented wild hot sauce inspired by @pascalbaudar — you could also make hot salsa, hot pickles, or add it as local substitute in any recipe with hot peppers in it (Indian curries, Thai curries, chili…).
