This month the Beacon Hill Garden House was perfumed with vanilla bean, the ripe peachy plum smells of quince and the sweet tang of cinnamon.
Massaging cabbage into kraut
To make sauerkraut mix about a tablespoon of non-iodized salt with a pound of shredded cabbage and massage until the cabbage is soft and there is lots of liquid at the bottom of the bowl. Then pack in a clean jar, make sure all the cabbage is covered with liquid and let set for a few days. When it is krauty enough for you put in the fridge.
Slicing up quince to steep in the chai syrup
Elaine Corets came and brought samples of her quince paste, some delightful quince infused vodka and a wealth of quince knowledge.
The caramelized quince paste, (square in front), was delicious.
