Subject: RE: BS: Recipes - what are we eating?
Used to make yogurt; best way of getting it to set in a cold climate was putting it in the bed with the hot blanket on and the duvet over it for a few hours.

Everyone in Ireland seems to be frenetically digging lazy beds and putting in potatoes, and reclaiming gardens and starting food seeds. The weather has been glorious for the whole lockdown period so far, but today some much-needed rain has arrived and the gardens and hills and fields are going "Aaaah!"

I'm trying to get scorzonera going. This is a long, sweet root, which is perennial and provides years of good eating; it's sweet-tasting (kind of like salsify) but is supposed to be good for diabetes.
