I rebel against this industrialization of our food. I try very hard not to buy those "oh so convenient" bags of lettuce, onions, squashes etc. which have been pealed, chopped and "washed" prior to being sold. (Much loved Trader Joes is a serial offender.)
I take primitive pleasure in peeling root vegetables
as I did today.
I par-boiled the peeled carrots, together with some par-boiled parsnips. Then I roasted them alongside a butternut squash with maple syrup in the "well".
Such a good meal!
Damn! Delicious! Delightful!
