Occasionally, we gardeners screw up.I just found out I did.Not that I don’t have many screw-ups in my repertoire….But sometimes those screw-ups turn out pretty good.
After planting carrot seeds last fall,I must have forgotten I wiped my hands and dropped some carrot seeds in a flower pot containing a parsley plant.After the Swallowtail cats ate the parsley I guess I thought that the parsley had started to re-grow.
Thinking that the parsley had a severe case of the wilts,I decided to yank it out.
Guess what I found?
What to do with it?I figured it would probably be very woody tasting,so I put it in the mini food processor with an under producing Vidalia Onion(waste not-want not),some molasses,sea salt,pepper,and garlic.
(garlic improves the flavor of everything,no?)
Whipped it up.Put it in the oven for a bit(just to cook thru).
Turned out pretty good.With a flavor reminiscent of Hubbard Squash. Served up with the last of the Beefsteak tomatoes and the last of the Green Beans…..
It’s better to be lucky than good,I guess…….
and a pretty good dinner,too!
