Beekeeping Update (Aug. 20/10)

Jody and I don’t have much to post about these days, so let’s recycle some stuff. I can’t find anything on SWT worth recycling, so I’ll pick something from Mud Songs instead where I’ve been posting all kinds of, you know, stuff — about my adventures in beekeeping. How about my first beekeeping video in HD?

Chanterelles – Best Mushrooms Ever

I’m not a connoisseur of mushrooms, but I picked some Chanterelles in the woods a few days ago, and they’re the tastiest mushrooms I’ve ever had. Sautéed with garlic, thyme, salt and pepper — beauty. Look around for them the next time you’re walking through the woods. They’re easy to spot. Just make sure they have gills underneath. The ones with a smooth underside are poisonous (or very trippy).

Big Fish in a Pan

The follow-up to Big Fish.

One of the giant cod’s younger brothers in a pan. Could be the best cod I’ve ever had.

On our plates, it looked like this. Pan fried cod caught a few hours ago, broccoli cut from our garden minutes ago, and sautée freshly picked Chanterelles mushroom. With a bottle of red wine, it was the best meal we’ve had this summer. Simple and delicious. It doesn’t get this good too often.
