Ingefærhøst -- A Harvest of Ginger (2. november)

     Hele sommeren har der stået en hvid, firkantet opvaskebalje i Uglemors dome. Der har groet underlige vækster op ad den. Uglemor synes, at de underlige spirer har været præsenteret før her på bloggen, men findes igen, det vil de ikke.
     Måske er det et af de blogindlæg, der kun er blevet skrevet inde i Uglemors underlige hoved. Så her er et nærportræt af en af dem som helt lille tilbage i februar.

All summer long a square, white washing bowl has had its place in MotherOwl's dome.
MotherOwl has a distinct memory of writing about those ET-sprouts, but they've gone away. Maybe it was one of those blog posts only composed in my quirky brain. Long story short. Here's a portrait of the plant way back in February. 
    

     I dag var de allesammen visnet, de kan ikke lide den kølige, danske vinter. For selv om de mindede en del om bambus, så er det altså ingefær.
     Uglemor måtte i gang med at høste.

Today all the green was wilted away. Even if they look a lot like bamboo they are ginger, and do not grow well in cold, dreary, Danish winters.
MotherOwl set to harvesting them.

     Først skal rødderne vaskes. Dette her stykke er ca. så stort som det, jeg plantede tilbage i februar.

Ginger roots having a bath. This one root is approximately the same size, as the one I planted back in February.



    Her ligger rødderne så til tørre. Vi har spist af dem undervejs ved at grave en enkelt lille rod op ved behov, så høsten er endnu større end det ser ud til.
     Nu overvejer Uglemor  så, om de lange tynde rødder til venstre i billedet også kan spises.
     I morgen skal Spirillen bage ingefærkager, og Uglemor har fundet en opskrift ovre hos Lucy fra Attic24. Den lyder lækker.

All the roots spread out to dry. The harvest is bigger than it seems, we have been stealing fresh roots all summer when we wanted ginger for cooking.
Now MotherOwl just wonders if the long, thing roots to the left in the picture can be eaten as well.
Tomorrow Marsupilami will make some ginger cookies, and MotherOwl found a new delicious looking recipe in Lucy's place at Attic24.

  1. Uglemor,

    I love ginger but I have never grown any of my own. Ginger cookies sound delicious! I wonder if you'll make a gingerbread house with some of your harvested ginger for Christmas.

    1. Good idea. We always make a gingerbread house, and I distinctly remember buying a ginger house mould at Christmas clearance sales last year. I hope I can find it. Ginger is easy to grow. The roots, I planted were just shrivelled ones from the supermarket.
