    diy food

    There’s no time for DIY like these cozy, cool months. But we don’t actually want to clutter our lives with questionable Pinterest projects. Instead, we’re getting crafty in the kitchen with the food projects below, as fun to make as they are to munch on.

    A few of the ideas here are actually practical for everyday life – think homemade kombucha and hemp milk to show that grocery bill who’s boss. Others will add a special touch to a night in with friends, like floral-infused cocktail syrups and superfood chocolates to accompany. The rest of these food projects, from tigernut bread to naturally rainbow-ified pasta, are simply entertaining to attempt, and rewarding no matter how the end result looks (can’t say the same for that spray-painted thing).

    Next time you find yourself homebound and bored, pluck some inspo from our list of food projects below, and let us know what you’re making!

    Homemade Goat Cheese

    Making goat cheese might sound fancy, but it’s actually quite simple. Dress it up with herbs and spices, dried flowers and honey, or keep it plain. Whichever way you go, there are a million ways to enjoy the final product – but best with friends who are very, very impressed. MAKE IT NOW

    Raw Superfood Chocolate Bars

    Cozy nights and chocolate bars are a match made in heaven. This superfood confection is made with all raw, plant-based ingredients, and gets its sweetness from honey rather than sugar. Play around with with flavor pairings, indluge and feel good about it. MAKE IT NOW

    Homemade Rainbow Pasta

    We’re suckers for rainbow food, but food coloring is some of the most toxic stuff out there. Learn how to dye your dough with plants – not paints – and crank out some fresh noodles for the prettiest pasta feast ever. MAKE IT NOW

    Herb Infused Wine

    Add a little extra wellness to your wine night-in. Infusing wine with therapeutic herbs supercharges it with medicinal benefits and adds a layer of flavor complexity. It’s also probably the easiest DIY that’s ever existed. MAKE IT NOW

    Fermented Veggies

    Floral Syrups for Cocktails

    Ginger Kombucha

    Another wellness fridge staple with health benefits galore, but at five or six buck a bottle, sipping on it as often as we want can cost a pretty penny. Making it at home only requires a few ingrediens and results in a big batch you can customize and sip on for weeks. MAKE IT NOW
