Yes, or as we do it, we just cut them in serving size pieces and bake them, then scoop the flesh off of the skin as it is eaten. They seem to have more flavor when baked with the skin than they do skinned, but that might just be me.

3/4 inch dia leeks x 2 in a light white cheese sauce browned off in the oven along side the roast chicken , 1/3 of a " small " carrot  Smile  between the three of us and 1/5 of a pointed primo summer cabbage  that was  buttered & well peppered after being cooked for 6 min in boiling salted water. 

 We still have a dozen or so of the cabbages that are still growing nicely in the shade of the bungalow despite them getting a minus six oC  frosting for a few hours a couple of days ago .

 The carrots are phenomenal , hard as rocks , 10 or more inches long , 3 inches at the crown and not a bug bite or hint of multiple roots . Thank goodness my MM beds are now 7 yrs or so matured and 36 inches deep , they are giving a good account of themselves .

Had a big carrot from the over wintering " Fly Away brand carrot " bed this evening .
They are not supposed to be rady till late December but I noticed the strong fronds and a 3 inch crown earlier today.

So it sort of self selected itself to get pulled and used  it was almost a foot long massive indeed .  It made some lovely coarse grated carrot to have inside our chicken, raw onion  and salad wraps .

 Now I've got to decide if I am going to soup the remaining seven inches up to the crown tomorrow in a chicken stock base that I've  made tonight .

Or
To turn some of it into carrots baton to have with a pork & beef sausage " Toad in the hole " evening meal tomorrow night  with a few spoons of the still useable frosted pointed summer greyhound or primo cabbage(  also out the garden tomorrow ). 

Then eat the rest of it on Saturday evening at tea time .

Ginger Cookies!

Post  littlejo on 12/3/2018, 12:22 pm

It got cold, so I realized my ginger was not going to bloom, so I dug about a week ago and made ginger cookies. They are soft and so good!

Be careful where you plant, because DEER love ginger plants. I planted in my sfg near the fence. They ate them off to the ground in June!

Littlejo, I must research ginger.  Mine never bloomed and is starting to look peaked as the weather gets colder.  Would you suggest I empty this pot and see whats in there, root-wise? Taken Nov 25.

Sanderson, I would go ahead and dump and see what you have. It takes about 10 months for them to bloom. With the deer eating them off, they had put up the bloom pods but did not open before it got cold. I had them in sfg in a 2 x 2. I got about 5 lbs. from 1 root from grocery store. They stop growing when they lose their green color. I've started some in a pot so I can get them in ground early.

We had two deep frozen thin slices of raw chicken breast coated in some herbs and yellow cornflake dust defrosting  in the fridge between two plates .
 Trouble is they were supposed to have been used for Saturday's evening meal  so by tonight they were a bit dry  . 
Rather than bin them Alison used them in a home made curry,   a fantastic mild rich yellow curry that I'm still drooling over . 

One of the ingredients in her home made " Out of her mind "  curry was the remaining 1/4 of a big carrot out one of the  ANSFG beds that she'd finely diced into 1/4 inch cubes  then fried in a spot of butter in the onion pan to soften & sweeten it .  By the time the curry was made the diced carrot has almost but not fully disappeared into the curry . 

 Not something she's done before,  but due to all three of us enjoying it  , she say's it will be something she'll be repeating .

Sounds delicious!  I love curry!

For us, it's fried green tomatoes.  I tried both seasoned bread crumbs and a cornmeal/GF flour from Bob's Red Mill.   The cornmeal allowed longer cooking and a better flavor.  Final tomato harvest as there was no hope for them to ripen indoors or outdoors.  Shelled peas for tonight.
