Leaf Erickson

Find the reddest leaf you can on a tree such as the one above. Pluck it. Pound it senseless in your favorite mortar with your favorite pestle. Praise result. Then scrape it into a thimble. Immolate. Stuff a two inch length of wet shoelace into thimble. Squish it around. Remove. Chew. This dish was a favorite among certain unusual Vikings.
