Forager

So, Obaachan using all that butterbur while she was here and me decimating all those edible but unloved jerusalem artichoke and fiddlehead ferns had me feeling a bit guilty and wasteful and I was inspired to make some neburu.

It took me a while but I worked out that neburu is local dialect for nobiru.

And nobiru translates as wild onion.

And so I picked me some wild onions from the massive patch that I have ignored for seven years:


And I washed them and cleaned off the tops and roots and dirt and ended up with this:


OK there were more but that was a during picture.

The refuse bucket looked like this:


Hmmm this not being wasteful is a pretty wasteful business!

But I persevered and ended up with this:

Vinegarred miso neburu. A surprisingly and rather disappointingly small container of the stuff.

And this is what I didn't use:


Hmmmmmm.....

But hey, I get to feel a little like a forager and can now ignore the edible grasses and mountain veggies and dandelion greens while holding my head high that I have done my foraging duty this season.

Don't worry, I will be back into the foraging spirit by the time the neighbour's chestnuts are falling in my field.
