DIY | Succulent Wreath

Ask any of us at the store what our favorite product is, and nine times out of ten, you'll probably hear succulents! So what better way to add a bit of holiday cheer to our homes than with a living succulent wreath?

The wreath mold includes all the information that you need for building your living wreath, but we thought we would show you how easy it is, just incase you need that extra push!

You will need a pencil or some kind of poker, a bucket filled with water, wire (optional) and your favorite succulents. That's it! 

Start off by dipping your wreath in water, being careful not to make it too wet as this will drown your succulents. Remove your succulents from their cups and loosen their roots. Leave just enough roots at your succulents base to anchor it when planted. 

Poke a hole in your wet moss wreath and plant your succulent. Repeat around your entire wreath for a living masterpiece. Floral wire or pins will help to secure your succulents until they are fully rooted. 

Pressed for time? Grab a ready planted wreath from the store and hang it in a minute! 

 Wishing you a very happy and safe holiday season. Happy planting!

Happy Thanksgiving

We love any excuse to get together with family and friends, and what better way to do it then with a day of feasting, celebrating and giving thanks! With all the amazing cookbooks lining the shop shelves, we know you guys have the main course covered, so we thought we would take care of the mid-game snack, go Hawks! Combined with some fresh fruits and hearty bread, this goat cheese is the perfect amuse-bouche and will seriously impress your guests. 

The kit includes: cheese making supplies, citric acid, cheese salt, french chevre molds, firm goat cheese recipe, glass dairy thermometer and cotton cheesecloth. All you need to do is grab two quarts of pasteurized goats milk and you are ready to mix, stir and shape. Let's get started...

Heat your milk to 190°F on a medium setting, stir often to avoid boiling and adjust heat if needed. For firm goat cheese, mix one tsp. and a pinch of citric acid into half a cup of water, stir and set aside. 

Turn the heat to low and quickly stir in your citric acid mix and stop stirring once mixed. Without stirring, hold at 190°F for two minutes, you should see some subtle curdling. Do not allow the temperature to go over 195°F or the milk will boil over.

Remove the pot from the heat, cover and leave to settle for ten minutes. Gently pour the curds and whey into a cloth-lined colander and let it drain until it looks like oatmeal. Mix in your salt and herbs and stir the curds gently until they look like dry mashed potatoes. Taste and adjust seasoning if needed. Check out the booklet included in the kit for full instructions and top tips. 

Time to shape and press or eat as is! If you are shaping your cheese, spoon your curd evenly into both molds. Place the molds on a plate to allow any extra whey to drain. Allow the cheese to cool for ten minutes then gently unmold by holding them upside down on a plate and firmly tapping. Serve on a cheese board with the usual trimmings and enjoy. Goat cheese in less than an hour, it's that easy! 

If you loved this as much as we did, or if goat cheese isn't your thing, check out the Mozzarella and Ricotta kit. It's great for gifting, home made pizza nights or just a fun thing to do with the lil' ones. 

If it's Friendsgiving or Thanksgiving that you are celebrating, eat well, enjoy and be safe! xo - Pigment

Macramé Workshop with Chelsea Smith

If you haven't spent a Saturday morning learning a new craft, meeting new people and enjoying some fine refreshments, we would really recommend it! We kicked off last weekend doing just that, with our first Macramé Workshop. 

As you can see we have moved the workshops up to our studio where all the Pigment behind-the-scenes action is. Our studio is just around the corner from the store and is proving to be the perfect blank canvas for our events and yours! 

We were all well fed and refreshed throughout the morning thanks to Coffee & Tea Collective and Cardamom Cafe and Bakery

The class was from 9-11am on October 18th. Our very own Chelsea Smith guided some crafty ladies through their first Macramé plant hanger. Each participant also got to take home a Macrame Kit including all the materials to make another plant hanger and an instruction booklet. Watch out peeps, there are a lot of macrame gifts coming your way this holiday season!

Keep an eye on our social media or jump on our mailing list for upcoming events. If you want to have your own bash, Pigment-style, the space, furniture and decorations are all available to rent. For more info, email us at media@shoppigment.com. 

Thank you for a wonderful morning ladies! xo - Pigment

Pumpkin Seeds Two Ways!

Halloween is here and that means it's pumpkin carving and seed roasting time! We took a shot at roasting pumpkin seeds two ways. First we mixed them with the delicious Sel Magique Classic Blend for a savory and nutritious snack, then we tossed them with the ever popular Gypsy Spice for those of us with a sweet tooth. Give it a try for your next zinc boost!

Preheat your oven to 300°F. Cut open your pumpkin and remove the seeds, separating the seeds from the flesh and strings. Rinse under cold water and spread on to a tea towel to dry.

Sel Magique Savory Seeds:

Ingredients:

  • Seeds from 2 Large Pumpkins
  • 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 4 Teaspoons Sel Magique Classic Blend
  • Add your dried pumpkin seeds to a roasting pan and drizzle with olive oil. Mix well and sprinkle with four teaspoons of Sel Magique Classic Blend. Toss around once more and place in the oven. If like us you are making another flavor, then set these savory seeds aside. 

    Sweet Gypsy Spice Seeds:

    Ingredients:

  • Seeds from 2 Large Pumpkins
  • 2 Tablespoons Butter
  • 1 Tablespoon  Gypsy Spice
  • 3 Tablespoons Sugar
  • Place your seeds in a roasting pan, we used the trusty Falcon enamelware. Melt butter and mix the Gypsy Spice with the sugar. Drizzle the melted butter evenly over your seeds and mix well. Finally sprinkle with your sugar spice blend and toss well. 

    Make sure your seeds are evenly spread on a single layer in your roasting pan and place in the oven. Roast until the seeds turn golden brown, about 20-25 minutes. Remove from the oven to cool and either serve immediately or pop them into an air tight container and offer as a delicious gift. 

    Enjoy! - Pigment
