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.

Spinach and Cornmeal Scones with Homemade Butter

Spinach and Cornmeal Scones with Homemade Butter

Saag, a traditional north Indian dish of long-cooked spinach and spices, Makki Di Roti and Makhan gets reimagined into scones.

Nothing is more Punjabi than Sarson da Saag and Makki di roti with a dollop of makhan, especially during Vaisakhi. This variation takes a minute to wrap your head around. Be warned, you’ll get a few jaw drops when saag is mentioned as an ingredient. Either that, or pangs of nostalgia will hit the scone eater.
