of my eye

I live within 10 miles of two fantastic apple orchards.  Between them, they grow over 125+ varieties on more than 40,000 trees.  With that many varieties, many are available year ’round via the orchards’ cold storage.  But, fresh apple season is upon us.  I cannot be more excited for apple leather, dried apples, apple tarts, apple pies, applesauce–all within close reach of home.  This next Call also fins it home less than 10 miles from me.  Take a look…

bouquet

Did you know orchids are edible?  Many of you have probably seen the sugared variety high atop a wedding cake or as a garnish, but they’re great in salads too.  The flavor is a bit like cucumber with the texture of a buttery lettuce and a touch of the bitter bite of endive.  Don’t eat orchids given to you as gifts.  If they weren’t grown by you, please be sure you only eat certified organic orchids.  The use of pesticides is prevalent in commercially farmed ornamental plants; so, be careful.  This next Call can center on orchids.  It is all up to you…

My kitchen smells of heavenly green cardamom.  It IS expensive, and I AM cheap.  But, I never regret the purchase.  I offset the expense by buying it ground instead of in the pod.  It loses flavor quickly when you store it ground, but cardamom is used in a huge number of cultures for dishes both sweet & savory.  It is a staple of Indian & Thai foods, but it is also found in Nordic breads & sweet treats.  You will love what cardamom will do for rice pudding or hot tea.  This next Call is international, just like my kitchen.  Take a look…

BREAD

My family enjoys participating in cultural celebrations from around the world.  None of us grew up with any sort of specific cultural traditions aside from spaghetti night or BBQ on Father’s Day.  So each year we adopt Chinese New Year, Oktoberfest & even the Day of the Dead as our very own.  Chinese New Year gives us an extra 6 weeks or so to make plans for the upcoming year (Yes, we really are late to everything –even making resolutions, ha).  Dia de Los Muertos offers us a time to tell stories about those we’ve lost.  I’ve lost a lot of people lately, and it is a great comfort to take time to celebrate them.  This next Call is interested in that same celebration.  Take a look…
