Sharp Cheddar - age, not ingredients

Sharp Cheddar - age, not ingredients originally a starblvd post by MEF, Mar/24/2004 08:54:42 [-05 EST] Unlike vegetables and fruit that are continually being bred for blandness, cheddar cheese is simply cheaper to sell when it is immature. Cheddar reaches its peak in about 5 to 6 years whereas most ...

Belgian Endive (Witloof)

originally a starblvd post by MEF, Mar/16/2004 17:45:13 [-05 EST] I tasted Belgian Endive many years ago and found it sour and sharp. I've ignored it since. Today I thought I would give it another go. What a surprise originally a starblvd post by the bitter sourness (which is its claim to fame) has ...

re: cut flowers

originally a starblvd post by llizard, Mar/12/2004 10:20:43 [-05 EST] I think cut flowers are a wonderful thing to have in the house - especially in the bleakness of winter. But I've always considered them an extravagance. MEF, you have put the extravagance in perspective. Cdn$7 a week? That's quite...

originally a starblvd post by David, Mar/12/2004 08:38:36 [-05 EST]

originally a starblvd post by David, Mar/12/2004 08:54:56 [-05 EST]

I had never heard of "Winter Melon". After a little googling I see that I know it as the "Wax Gourd". I've never seen them available to buy.
