Over the last two years we have definitely caught the gardening bug. Four raised beds and a few pots provide us with a bounty of produce to enjoy over the summer months with plenty leftover to process and store for winter. While we have come to love the daily ritual of picking through the garden for that day’s harvest, we know that it is not for everyone. You might not have the physical space, temperament or schedule for gardening, but that doesn’t mean you should give up on growing edible delights altogether!
No, this post won't be about Cinderella or Joni Mitchell's immortal "Big Yellow Taxi", although I am sure you all would enjoy that. The title actually refers to flavor, more specifically the lack of a specific flavor that we experienced on our recent Nordic adventures to Iceland and Sweden. That flavor was heat, and accompanying its absence was the presence of too much sweet.
