Dagens billede 5 -- Picture a Day 5

  • Porretoppe, ingefær i to små poser, porreringe og blandede chilier. Alt sammen lige til at putte i fryseren.
  • Green parts of leek for soup making, two small bags of gnger, leek rings and mixed chillies, the orange ones are the hottest and yellow is mildest.  
     Uglemor køber ofte ting på tilbud, og for nogen tid siden var der tilbud på grøntsager i supermarkedet. De sidste to år har man ikke kunnet købe økologiske porrer fra midt i februar eller deromkring, og Uglemors porredyrkningsplaner er ind til videre endt med græslignende ting i stedet for porrer. Derfor har Uglemor købt en masse porrer da de var på tilbud. Samtidig var der også billige chilier, og da Uglemors chilier ikke gav noget stort udbytte i sommers, blev de også indkøbt. Så skulle det bare fryses.
      Grøntsagerne i Ugleboet er placeret på trappen til ovenpå. Meget praktisk, da Uglemor så ikke kunne undgå at se på porrerne adskillige gange om dagen. Men de lå der nu alligevel i flere mange dage, før Uglemor endelig i dag fik taget sig sammen til at snitte og fryse porrerne, også toppene, der skal bruges i suppe. Så blev den hjemmedyrkede ingefær og chilierne også frosset ved samme lejlighed. Måske er der ikke helt porrer nok til at bringe os igennem den porreløse tid, men så må vi jo leve uden. Chilierne skal i hvert fald nok række.
     Også dagens fangst fra tilbudsmontren blev frosset ned. Næste uge er det jo vinterferie, og så gider Uglemor måske ikke at skulle af sted på indkøb hver dag. 

     Chilifrøene blev lagt i en lille bakke, og Uglemor vil så dem i den kommende uge - forhåbentlig. For husets beholdning af jalapeñofrø er sluppet op. Så for sytten - endnu et projekt!

MotherOwl is good at buying in bulk when things are at an offer, but using them or getting them frozen is not that easy.  For the last two years our shop ran out of organic leek sometimes in late February to our great irritation, what is soup or stew without leek? And MotherOwls growing our own leek plans has always ended with grass rather than leek.

This year MotherOwl bought many leek when they were cheap some time ago. Since then they have sat on our staircase - it's the coldest room an central as well - and grinned at MotherOwl each time she passed them. Also on the same day chillies were cheap, and as our chilli harvest was bad, some found their way into the shopping basket too.

 But today was the day. All the leek were chopped and put into a bag, also the green parts for later use in soup making. Then the chillies underwent same treatment, and the homegrown ginger was chopped and put in bags.

In addition to all the vegetables some meat from the "today or tomorrow is best before date"-place at the supermarket were frozen. Next week there's no school, and maybe MotherOwl do not have to go shopping each day then.

The chilli seeds were put aside, as MotherOwl intend to grow them in the next week or so. The jalapeño seeds I bought some years ago are used up. Yay a new project!

  1. Uglemor,

    I love leek soup. I love zucchini and leek soup even more! I never thought of freezing leeks while they are in season. Perhaps I should!

    1. Well I was lucky I did it, today organic leek were sold out and no more coming. The Owlets like potato soup with leek.
