I really love fir trees!
They remind me of Christmas but also of a journey in the car we used to take to my father’s village in Euboia (Evia). When we were young my brother and I played a game when we started to drive up Mt Dirfis to get to my father’s village.
The game was called “who can see the first fir tree” and whoever saw the first one and pointed it out won the game. You can see fir trees up there above 600 metres but until then you see only pine trees.
In Springtime especially, the game would become easier as the new growth, bright green on the edges of the branches made it easier to spot them..if you touched them they were very soft and if you rubbed them between your fingers the scent they gave off was wonderful….
So I said that I would make a new game so that I could keep that scent around longer. As the internet is full of recipes with sugar coated lily of the valley and sugar coated this and that I though I would make sugar coated fir tree leaves.
What I will do with it I’m not sure yet… maybe I’ll make a cake with it…
