MoonCat Farms post over the weekend. I have decided to do a series of posts about my herbal visits over the years. I have done a lot of traveling to wonderful herbal places and I'm going to relive my favorite moments with you, dear herbal readers. Here I am (Yes, that's me!) with Adelma Simmons at Caprilands Herb Farm. You can't miss that beanie of hers. Also, there is a sign above her head. Here she is looking at a picture of my garden at the time and telling me what lovely artemisia I had! I remember that gave me chills in a good way!
Caprilands Strawberry Soup
2 cups of strawberries
1 cup heavy cream
1 cup sour cream
Run strawberries through blender, add cream, blend. Add sour cream and a few whole berries before serving.
It was decadent in its simplicity. As I recall recipes, I will share them with you. I remember she took a recipe from this book and another recipe from another book. She was a very smart herbal business woman! I remember a chicken (The more I think about it the more I think it was a seafood casserole and The Herbal Husband ate it! He is not a big fan of seafood! I happily make up for his dislike of seafood!) casserole of some kind. Adelma had a fabulous cook, but in the end it was all about herbs.
You can always find Adelma's books on Bookfinder. As you know, I get in a lot of trouble on that website. If you click Caprilands Herb Farm link above, it does not take you to a website for Caprilands, but to a story on About.com that describes a visit to Caprilands in 2001 or so. I tried to get on the Caprilands website and could not find it. I read on another site that it is closed. So hope you live vicariously through The Herbal Husband and I. Enjoy Caprilands Herb Farm!
