Blackberry Ginger Cardamom Scones

Blackberry Ginger Cardamom Scones

Picture it in your mind, wild blackberries ready for the picking in an urban setting. Its kind of mind bending, especially for someone like me, who doesn’t immediately think of urban wild food foraging. While I may not be inclined to attempt it myself, I can’t help but notice all the people who are picking wild blackberries along Cambie Street, or parking their bikes at Stanley Park Seawall to gobble up a few. I find it fascinating and can’t help be a bit envious of their skills and adeptness for survival on wild food, if needed. Or perhaps, its their vulnerability to try something wild without the safety of a grocery store, fruit stand, or even home garden. Sadly, my connection to nature is not that close yet.

Apple Rose Mini-Pies

Apple Rose Mini-Pies

I am done with traditional apple pie.

I admit this post was meant to be about how I excel at pie crust making. How I can combine a few ingredients like butter, salt, flour, and water and create a flaky sensation.

I won’t lie, I am confident in my pie-crust making, because I was (sort of still am) a Martha Stewart acolyte. In my early teens, before Martha Stewart’s financial woes, I was fascinated by Stewart’s uber-domesticity. I put her on a pedestal and felt enormously guilty I wished Martha Stewart was secretly my mother. My mom on the other hand thought it was pretty funny, I would be so taken by this woman who valorized home keeping. She wasn’t hurt. Rather she was happy another woman was helping to championing her daughter into the world of food and home life.
