It’s our first week back in session in BC and it’s been a little cool and damp around the lodge. Spring showers and the odd snow flake have surprised and delighted us with their unpredictable way of dashing in and then dashing out again just as suddenly. There’s a saying in the mountains – wait 20 minutes and the weather will change. And so it has!
Tip: take the spices (including the ginger) aside and saute them in a near dry skillet on a low heat for a few minutes. This helps release their rich flavours. Then add your onions, celery, etc and saute them all together. This dish can also be left to cook in a slow cooker rather than simmering on the stove.
