…is the food you get by walking out to your garden, picking it, and eating it immediately or almost immediately. No nasty sprays, no bland fruits picked green and trucked for thousands of miles, no limp wilted colourless tasteless stuff.
This week, we’ve enjoyed lettuce, tomatoes, apricots, French beans and peas out of our garden. I’ve given a lot of apricots away, as well as frozen bags full of quartered ones for later use.
My morning smoothies are extra special with the cherries that came off my tree last month.
Yesterday, I cooked the beans for a few minutes and we had them with bulgur and a dressing made with olive oil, lemon juice and fresh herbs (also from the garden). Today, the peas went into a curry with cauliflower, parsnips and coconut milk.
