Organic Biodynamic Cranberry Sauce! In case you’re in the dark about what Biodynamic agriculture is, let us shine an orb of celestial light on the subject: Rudolph Steiner developed the ideas around this unique form of alternative agriculture. While very similar to organic farming, it includes various esoteric concepts such as the use of an astrological sowing and planting calendar. It also calls for various herbal and mineral additives for compost additives and field sprays; these are sometimes prepared by controversial methods, such as burying ground quartz stuffed into the horn of a cow, which are said to harvest “cosmic forces in the soil”, that are more akin to sympathetic magic than agronomy.
According to Steiner, agriculture should be based on the ideal of a mixed farm where the animals are fed from crops grown on the farm and in turn those crops, along with food crops, are fertilized with composted manure from the same animals. A Biodynamic farm, at its base, imitates the self-sufficiency of nature.
However you prefer the aura around your OG cranberries, these ones are bursting with flavor and have lent themselves to an incredible sauce comprised of 3 simple ingredients: The aforementioned ladies of the hour, Organic Maple Syrup and Fresh Organic Cara Cara Oranges. Sure to raise the vibration and harmoniously accent any organic bird or veggie loaf. 7oz $4.99
