Weekly Update, December 12

Not a lot to report here.  The leaf mulch is on the garlic, it has been cold and wet, and we haven’t harvested anything this past week.

I’m not inspired to post of the recipes on this week’s menu that haven’t already been posted.

I will however, toss out a couple notes and links regarding country ham.  At one point or another I have personally tried the 1st 5 links to ham, and I like them all.

I wish these people did country ham:

I don’t like smoked country ham, it always seems like it is “too much” to me.  But then again, I’m not much of a fan of anything with a strong smoked flavor.  If you’re reading this, and are not in the US, country ham is most similar to a salty proscuitto.

I will go ahead and relink to my red-eye gravy post.  I noticed however, that when I was making it today, that I left something out in that recipe, which I’ll go back and edit in; I add a few shakes of black pepper to it.

    My garlic finally poked it’s head up out of the compost mulch layer. It was late in doing so this year but we also had a significant cold snap hit earlier than is normal this year too. I was starting to worry about them but just about the time I was tempted to dig around in the soil to check on them… they made their appearance. I already have a heavy layer of compost on them, so I am not going ot add any more mulch.
