Jamie Oliver can cook anything from zombie brains and alien heads to Chernobyl vegetables

What’s the name of this vegetable? Don’t peek.

It’s a celeriac. I’ve been told it looks like an alien’s head, a zombie brain, a Chernobyl vegetable and “the thing that was stuck to Spock’s back.” The celeriac was part of our fall organic vegetable delivery a few weeks ago. Someone gave me a Jamie Oliver recipe to try cooking this unique veggie. The recipe rocked and everyone enjoyed eating zombie brains for Thanksgiving. It tastes like celery and cooked, has the texture of a potato. Celeriac is rich in potassium and vitamins C and B-6. Here’s the Jamie Oliver recipe, just in time for Halloween. Let me know how it works out for you.

 

Organic-vegetable delivery getting bountiful

Eight weeks ago, when this experiment started, I thought I had a lot of fresh organic vegetables to content with every week, but really, it turned out to be a small amount. Now that summer is in full swing, my bi-weekly delivery of organic vegetables is humongous!

How is a family of three supposed to eat all this in a week? That was my first thought. Thankfully, we signed up for a bi-weekly service so we have two weeks to eat all this!
