    I often look at the older recipe books in the second hand stores. Its interesting because you can see many of them are done with vegetables and fruit out of the garden or back yard, What are now called “heirloom varieties”. Full of flavour, but not that pretty to look at. now we are bombarded with pictures of the “perfect” fruit from the supermarket, no blemishes, tomatoes that never go soft (GMO or Hybrids grown in greenhouses). I don’t consider the new ones very good food at all, I still grow a lot of my vegetables myself. If you get back to growing your own veg and fruit, you don’t really think like you do when you shop. Most people get a recipe, then head to the store and buy ingredients. If you have a garden, you look at what the garden is growing, then think what you can cook with what you have…

    Some of that sounds very tasty. Perhaps I will try to make a few. Some have ingredients that would be hard to find in the US (frozen mackerel though we have canned, capelin though probably smelt could substitute, fresh seaweed.. I suspect that fresh seaweed would be hard to find in Russia if you’re not near the ocean).
