Where the wild things are!

Mint & Rhubarb

Mint-- "Don't plant it in your garden, it will take over" said the gardener. "Contain it! " said the gardening book. "You're crazy to plant it there, it's a weed," said my friend. Never one who likes to color in the lines, and also not one who likes to be contained herself, let's just say I love this wild child of the garden. I love that I never know where I'll find its smiling little face. I love it's return every spring. I love it in one of Steve's mojitos or snipped into the Thai Salad. It's amazing in the potato ravioli that a Sardinian farmer taught me how to make. And this week, thanks to inspiration from my nephew John, I'm going to love it in mint chocolate chip ice cream!

But my love for wildness doesn't stop at mint. This week's menu features stinging nettles, ramps, fiddle heads, elderberries, and the rhubarb my grandfather planted 80 years ago.
