My uncle is a Lister Supreme. I’m just a little plain cheese lister…but he practically majored in listing in college. His latest list is 1,000 Things to Eat Before You Die(t). He’s just rating and trying new foods for fun. He said I could join him if I wanted. That’s fine. I will. Our difference is that I want to make/cook/bake new foods, whereas he just wants to eat them. So, to each his own, and I’ll be glad to add my food ideas and trials to his.
So…my Number One on my list actually was a surprise addition! We dropped my daughter off at Camp Grandma yesterday and as we were getting ready for lunch, my mother-in-law pointed out a huge plant she was growing on her deck. She said my mom had given her the seeds for Christmas and voila! Master Gardener Mother-in-Law had grown a beautiful HUGE plant full of beautiful nasturtiums.
They were so bright they’re almost neon.
Then she had me put them in our salad. I cut them up a little so that my family would eat them without knowing (it worked!). And we enjoyed a Nasturtium Salad for lunch.
They taste kinda peppery – sort of like how arugula tastes as compared to iceberg lettuce. Interesting and unique. And beautiful. But I’m not gonna say I’ll ever start picking nasturtiums and just chewing on them because I’m craving them! I’d rate them a 3.
