Since I wasn't able to post anything during the holiday season, I have plenty of photos and food related stories to share with you from my time on the farm. We harvested cacao, caught fish, ate massive quantities of black fruitcake and tangerines and engaged in numerous other food related activities, but today I thought I would back track to Christmas (I know, its so over, its so 2007, you are so done with it, but bear with me). Here are some photos from our Christmas feast of canned ham (probably from Brazil), and side dishes that came right from the farm: roasted breadfruit and winged beans with chaya.
Here's the spread. As you can see our kitchen doesn't have a wall, which makes it very handy when tossing out dish water or a bone for the dog:
The skin cut from an oven roasted breadfruit, and my mom cutting it up.
Roasted breadfruit cut into slices.
Empty winged bean pods, fresh from our garden. Winged beans are originally from South East Asia where hundreds of varieties are cultivated.
I'll talk more about breadfruit and winged beans and such in future posts, but for the moment, I have a lot of browsing to do in order to catch up on what is going on in the food blogging world!
