Well its now Spring and the Ridge Berry Farm team is preparing for our Tea Room's seasonal opening next Tuesday!
Meanwhile, since our last blog entry, we had the opportunity to compose a new soup recipe based on what we had on hand.
The last (hopefully) snow storm of the season, did not stop us from trying to dig up some Sunchoke roots. With what had been a rather mild Winter, we thought the ground would be soft enough to recover a few tubers and we were quite right.
Once cleaned, we decided to taste them raw. Usually, we found the Sunchoke to have a nice mild and nutty taste. We were quite surprised to find that this late in the season, they are indeed very sweet. They almost tasted like carrots!
We decided to turn these into a soup...
