So I haven’t posted recently. Sorry about that. Truth is, I haven’t made anything too marvelous lately. Plus I am getting pretty tired of vegetables.
Here is the box o’ vegetables from two weeks ago. Look at this bountiful harvest…
The cucumbers didn’t last 5 minutes out of the box. I sliced those up and ate them with a little salt.
I made more beet chips from the beets. I used the mandolin slicer, and took a nice slice into my pointer finger (which, coincidentally was my second finger cut in as many days), so I purchased those no-cut gloves. I have since used them, and I can’t say I have had a close call that has warranted the purchase, but at least I can cut with confidence. The funny thing is that I don’t really actually eat the chips though. Maybe I should take them into work or something.
The weekend after the box arrived I had some friends over for a seafood boil, which found a home for the sweet corn and the potatoes. The best way to make sweet corn is to grill it, husk on. I find it best to soak it first in water to make sure it doesn’t dry out.
Then lastly, I made pickled banana peppers. it was a pretty easy recipe, although I had a “burning nose” situation. Basically, most of the peppers were normal, non-spicy peppers, but there were a couple spicy ones in there. Not knowing this, I was not very careful, and scratched my nose a little. Oh the burn. Here are some pics.
That’s it for this post. I have a few recipes I am trying in the next few days, so the posts will pic up a little more.
