Our relationship with him makes it possible for us to cook almost as if we had a garden right outside the kitchen door. There is no substitute for the immediacy you feel when produce has been harvested and brought right to your kitchen without having languished in storage. Of course the Cannard farm cannot grow everything we need. Over the years we have stitched together a patchwork of over forty growers of fruits and vegetables nearby. Some of them live in microclimates that have led them to specialize in just a few crops.
Exact quantities should never matter as much to a cook of vegetables (or of anything else) as her confidence in her own senses. ABOUT THE ILLUSTRATIONS The original illustrations reproduced in this book are color linocut images drawn, cut, and printed by the artist. As in woodcut relief printing, in linoleum block printing a drawing is first transferred to the block—a layer of smooth linoleum, made from linseed oil and powdered cork, mounted on wood. The linoleum is cut with knives and gouges, removing the negative space of the image and leaving a relief surface of line or solid color.
Unless the leaves are of the tiny beet-colored variety just picked from the garden, amaranth is better cooked. Use the stems as well as the leaves, although thicker stems may need peeling and you may not want to bother. The big, splashy leaves and stems of late-season amaranth sometimes need a preliminary parboiling. Spring and early summer amaranth needs no more than the routine washing and grooming before you get on with the cooking. You will notice that amaranth does not cook down as much as spinach.
