Now & Later

This is one of the few (frostbitten) nasturtiums that's still hanging on out in the garden. The rest have died back and left their strange little brain-shaped seeds behind.

I have a great recipe for those nasturtium seeds: Poor Man's Capers

Boil and cool:

1/s litre white wine vinegar
1 teaspoon pickling salt
1 medium onion, thinly sliced
1/4 lemon, thinly sliced
1/2 teaspoon pickling spice
1 clove garlic, crushed
4 to 6 peppercorns
1/2 teaspoon celery seed

Add the green pods and seal. Keep the mixture refrigerated and use the nasturtium pickles in sauces, dips, casseroles, soups and stews.
