I love to cook, but the same old recipes I feel won't do the fruits of our hard labour any justice. Also how will I deal with gluts of Broad Beans or Runner Beans? I need more ideas, how to preserve, pickle and store these goodies for months to come.
So I treated myself to this....
I love this book!
Amazon have been selling their cookbooks for half price just lately, there was many to choose from. I nearly went for Alys Fowler's Edible Garden or Nigel Slater's Tender Vol 1 but it was something about the brightly coloured cover and the gorgeous photography that won me over, plus it had a great write up.
It arrived yesterday, I eagerly flipped through pages. Such gorgeous recipes with about 8 recipes for each vegetable and in a month by month season, perfect for the home grower like me.
So yesterday I picked some Broad Beans (finger sized and used them in the pods like runner beans) and made this for last nights supper:
My version of the recipe!
