From the edible garden?

Postby mitcho » Sun Jan 06, 2008 7:54 pm

Can I use a photo of the results of my edible garden here? Kick it out if it doesn't fit. I made Thai tonight so I harvested some of what I needed from the vege patch.

They all look top quality. I am sure they tasted much better than a garden would, too. :D

Thank you but only after I peeled the bad leaves of the onions, washed the galangal and capsicums and found some nice herb leaves. There are plenty in the garden I would not show you. :roll: :lol:

Is the flavour of galangal similar to ginger? I have not used it, but have been told that it is like ginger, but stronger flavour.

It is not quite the same but it is often used in Thai cooking instead of ginger. I have used it instead of ginger in other Asian recipes and it goes okay. It is very easy to grow.

Thanks, Mitcho. I must try some. I have several gingers but they are all ornamental.

Mitcho, that's got to fit - it looks awesome, and a great photo to boot! (Y) And it's what it's all about - the picking and the choosing because you CAN from our own garden! Even better - on the day you're going to eat it :D

abwal, galangal is a lot stronger in terms of flavour compare to ginger. It's good to put few slices in spicy soup to bring the taste but don't use more that that. It will make the meal taste biter!

Great efffort mitcho, is that 'lime-kaffir' leaves or (something like that, the one that doesn't fruit) or leaves from the same tree the lime is from .. ? That Vietnamese mint is one of my favourite herbs... I've not heard of galangal before though... how do you grow it/ do you think it would grow in Melbourne ... ?
Cheers

They are Kaffir lime leaves but the lime isn't. The fruit of the Kaffir lime has very rough skin.

BL is spot on. I do use the rind of the kaffir lime fruit sometimes.
