by Talley and Beryl

After leaving the farm of our neighbors Gwen and Fred (generous benefactors of the apples used to make last week’s tart), we went to Gwen’s son Sam and daughter-in-law Sue’s place.  In addition to pigs and pears, Sam grew garlic this year.

Jerusalem artichokes are wonderful, knobby, difficult to clean tubers that are easy to find in the northwest this time of year at farmers markets. They are not artichokes (although they taste a bit like artichokes, hence the name and confusion) and they have no particular connection with Jerusalem (Italians called them Girasole, Italian for sunflower, […]

This farro soup recipe is a moving target for us.  We’ve made it so many times that we don’t really remember what the original was like, we only know that we always like it.  Talley’s mom started making it too and has tailored it to her taste; now we’re getting tips from her.  This time […]
