Today was fun for our group who care for the
backyard garden. Last week, we harvested the
corn, peeled and and froze it ready for today when we cooked it and ate it. This corn was really tasty, so sweet!
We also taste tested two chutneys made from ingredients from our gardens and our Hukanui Honey. There was a spicy chutney and a sweeter one. We used apples, apple cucumber, onions, vinegar and honey. Half of us like one of the chutneys the most and the rest of us liked the other one.
It is great to cook things that we have eaten right by the Living Room where we grow things.
Grandma Sharon helped us. She also explained the history of corn and where it comes from.
We are lucky to plant, cook, eat ant learn about foods in our own gardens.
