My childhood friend, Kathy came to stay with us for long weekend. We spent the three days celebrating and playing.
Saturday night we made noodles (one egg from our chickens.) with fava beans, peas, turnips and tons of herbs on top.
We also ate more venison, traded from Bob, slow cooked in white wine with herbs, with ground cherry chutney on the side.
I think that ground cherries are my favorite kind of chutney.
Kim brought salad and flowers from her garden. Some of the flowers were for the table, and some were for the salad! Nasturtium flowers are so bright and spicy, and a lovely old standard in salad, but she also added bachelor buttons, which I had never eaten before!
This is the ground cherry chutney. Possibly the best food ever.
