We’ve looked at how to use food to balance the first, second, third, and fourth chakras and it’s especially appropriate doing so with the throat chakra. The vishudda encompasses not only the throat but also the mouth and taste buds.
The throat chakra is traditionally associated with fruits, especially blue ones like blueberries and blackberries. Other foods associated with this chakra include herbal tea, dragon fruit, ginseng, wheat grass, mushrooms, kelp, and figs.
This week’s recipe comes from my dear momma’s very first cookbook, a first edition Betty Crocker’s New Picture Cook Book. This same recipe can be made substituting blueberries for the strawberries.
- For 9″ pie, make pastry for a two-crust pie
- 1 1/3 c. sugar
- 1/3 c. flour
- 2 c. cut up rhubarb
- 2 c. sliced strawberries
- 1 1/2 T. butter
Heat over to 425 degrees. Mix sugar and flour. Mix lightly through rhubarb-berry mixture. Pour into pastry-lined pie pan. Dot with butter. Cover with top crust which has slits cut in it. Sprinkle with sugar. Seal and flute. Cover edge with 1 1/2″ strip of aluminum foil to prevent excess browning. Bake 40 to 50 minutes, or until crust is nicely browned and juice begins to bubble through the slits. Serve slightly warm.
Stay tasty, my friends,
