Mountain Laurel and Vegetable Stock #3

Posted in Food, Jon Crispin, Nature, Plants by joncrispin on 16/06/2013

The mountain laurels are really wild this year.  (Do I say this every year?  I know there are previous posts about this plant, but really, this year is amazing.)  One of the locals told me that this part of Pelham used to be called Mount Laurel and I can see why.  When we look out the window it is almost like there is snow on the leaves of the plants.

I had a great dad’s day today.  Peter is home from DC for a bit (the Nationals are on the road) and I got the chance to chill out and cook.  I made another vegetable stock.  As you can tell by the color, there were lots of beet peelings in it.  You can see my previous posts about it here and here.  I used some of it to make a wild rice thing for Cris and it was great.

    It looks wonderful! There is plenty of the laurel up here in the hills above The Mediterranean. I shall harvest some today on my walk.
