Fork-to-fork this week

November 24, 2009 at 5:39 am | Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment

With a mix of rain and sun (good) and strong wind (bad), it’s been an increasingly productive week in the garden. We’ve been harvesting

  • broad beans
  • lettuce (trout-spotted)
  • chard
  • arugula
  • celery leaves
  • herbs
  • garlic scapes
  • one trial, way-too-early shallot
  • strawberries

These have emerged from the kitchen as

Warn broad bean salad: Shell, blanch and double pod the beans. They should look like jade beads. Saute shallot and garlic spaces in butter and stir through beans and oregano at the last minute.

Balsamic strawberries: Cut slug bites out of the strawberries, sprinkle with sugar and a good slug of balsamic vinegar. Leave to marinate. Serve with creme fraiche, with a little vanilla essence mixed in, and topped with mint.
