You thought I would say no harvest didn't you. Well I had two harvests of three different things. The first harvest was some kale and sage. I was making a Tuscan bean soup with the small bit of Tarbais beans that I had. Yum.
Then I debated what to make for the Superbowl. I decided on a recipe I saw. Black bean and squash tacos. With my solanine poisoning I don't get tacos. They all have tomatoes or chilies in them. This one didn't. So I sliced up my stored Redwing onions for the pickled onions (I don't have shallots); cooked up some of my butternut squash; made some refried black beans from my Trail of Tears beans. But I wanted cilantro in the beans. So I went outside. And yes the cilantro was still alive. I couldn't believe it. Amazing. I've never had cilantro grow through the winter before. It was slightly purple edged from the cold, but it still seemed quite happy. It wasn't in the recipe, but then who actually follows a recipe? The squash got some cardamom too even though that wasn't in the recipe. And next time I'm going to leave out the peppercorns in the pickled onions. Cracked pepper is good, but I hate biting into so many peppercorns.
