Why? Because you can! And pickle, and jam, or otherwise celebrate the resurgence of the domestic arts our forebears held so dear. Put on your best apron and step into our kitchen, won't you?
Much of what's underfoot this time of year--tender young dandelion, sharp wild garlic, even forsythia blossoms--is edible.
Forsythia is blooming! And you know what that means, right? Forsythitinis! And scones, and preserves and jam. Hurry up and preserve this fabulous bloom before it's gone.
