Tonight’s dinner was a lily – chufa – parsley stir-fry (chinese style) with buckwheat noodles…
Lily = bulbs of Lilium martagon (Martagon lily), an important forest garden source of carbohydrate, liking the shady conditions of deciduous woodlands
Chufa – the delicious tubers of the grass Cyperus esculentus
The pie crust was made of whole grain fine naked barley flour (Hordeum vulgare var. nudum).
Lovely bunch of people on the two tours of my garden today! Forgot to take any pictures during the first tour, so just a couple from the second during the only shower…it had threatened to be a very wet afternoon this morning!!
