Google+ What I Made Today: Kitchen Love

Kitchen Love

I harvested, planted and transplanted ...
I enjoyed nettles, minus the sting - yummmm ...
I started beans for their pre-cook fermentation ...
I baked two more loaves of bread, this time whole wheat cranberry bread for my Forest Folk week ... 

I roasted a chicken with potatoes to serve with those cooked greens (above), simmered carrots and a nice escarole salad.

That's what I made today.

Ok...how do you get past the sting of the nettles? I have it here and I'm afraid of the stuff. How do you cook it?

The bread looks delish! I'm drooling. :)

Silke said...

That all looks delicious! Do you use a recipe for the bread? It looks amazing!! As does the roast chicken and the greens! :) Silke

Rustic Diva, when simmering the nettles, the sting simply goes away. They we amazingly delicious, BTW, I cooked mine today with garlic.

Silke, I don't use recipes for my breads. For me it is about process and engaging my senses and not about formula. I'm quite certain it was when I gave up the recipe-following that my bread-making improved by leaps and bounds!

Sorry Carey - you missed it! LOL

And luthien, thank you. They do tend to come out pretty nice! :D

Thanks reading!

Looks like some delicious kitchen endeavours there!

I love nettles too. And as a newcomer to bread-baking I'm always interested to see what goodies others come up with.

Thanks for commenting on my blog, because I'm very happy to have found your wonderful blog as a result.
