Crosnes, a.k.a. Chinese Artichokes a.k.a. (Stachys... at BiodiverSeed Crosnes, a.k.a. Chinese Artichokes a.k.a. (Stachys affinis) These small edible tubers come from a perennial plant in the mint (Lamiaceae) family, that has long been cultivated in China and Japan (where they are normally served pickled). Crosnes à la crème They have a flavour similar to that of a sunchoke, but slightly nuttier. The tubers also bear a striking resemblance to maggots! They are hardy in USDA zones 4-8, and like many members of this family, tolerate water-logged soil. Apparently, if a nearby market can be found for them, they sell for roughly $80 CAD (60€) /kg, with a yield being roughly 1 kg/m2. I managed to track these tubers down from a private seller of rare germplasm, “Elfskins Edibles.” Read More: Plants for a Future; Eat the Weeds; Mother Nature News Illustration: Le site du Jardinier #perennial vegetables #seed sellers #root vegetables #edible landscaping

Garden Seed | Vegetable Garden Seed | Garden Seed Catalog | Garden Seed Company | Vermont Bean Oven "Fried" Pickles with Skinny Herb Buttermilk Ranch Dip Cornmeal panko herb crusted dill pickles baked in the oven until golden and crisp. Have you ever had fried pickles? Fried pickles to a New Yorker is quite uncommon, alien actually! But in the South they are wildly popular. The first time I tried fried pickles was at a restaurant in DC, I found myself trying to decide if I liked them, yet oddly reaching for seconds and thirds. Since then I have had many requests for a make-over and finally tackled the request. Baking them worked out great, the crumbs stuck perfectly and with a generous amount of oil sprayed on top, they baked to a golden crisp. As a base I started with a version Mary from Mary's Bites shared with me, which I slightly adapted it to suit my taste. Directions: Make ranch dip by combining all the dip ingredients and refrigerate until pickles are done. Place pickles to drain on paper towels. Mix crumbs and flour together along with paprika, parsley, and half the chipotle powder and salt.
