inspired

this time of year it is hard for me to muster up any more food preservation energy. i have been deep into my stock pots for months now. alas, just when i was ready to call it a year, we harested our first crop ever of ginger:  fresh, inspirational baby ginger.

wow. raised here in our high tunnel, we have been tending this delightful crop since early spring. the culinary thrill seems endless to me right now.

first i tried pickled ginger (japanese gari)

then, since these have to sit for a week at least, i had to make a quick batch of crystallized ginger
