Actually, the term is more correctly frost bitten Japanese Indigo! I admire it so much I must share Riihivila’s efforts in Finland on more exploring with different variations of dried indigo based on John Marshall’s Dried Japanese Indigo recipe in his latest publication.
Riihivila takes advantage of a late freeze to explore here…
So, if you live somewhere early frosts are threatening your late season JI, consider this exploration.
No photos in my blog today but jump over to Riihivilla’s blog and enjoy her photos.
