Just picked up the Spring issue of Edible Blue Ridge. Yes, we are a little behind. Highlights:
- The editor describing a 60 Minutes segment where Leslie Stahl got giddy over a simple breakfast cooked for her by Alice Waters
- An article about Virginia Truffle Growers, who are selling oak seedlings that were inoculated with the spore that produces truffles
- A description of goose, duck, and quail eggs, in comparison with chicken eggs
- A short story about Jon Hampton, who creates stencils for the powdered sugar faces that sometimes grace the pancakes at Blue Moon Diner in Charlottesville
- An ad for Bridgeport Construction, LLC, a local company that makes Eco Cottages. The pictured cottage is adorable, and only 250 square feet!
- A recipe for candied mint: spray mint leaves with vegetable spray; dredge in sugar; microwave for a minute on a plate covered with plastic wrap
