Which Beef Broth Tastes Better?

Which Beef Broth Tastes Better? | Annie Haven | Haven Brand | Scoop.it
Several weeks ago I published one of my favorite Chicken Marsala recipes of all time. I placed a photo on the post of Campbell’s Beef Broth and there was a general outcry that I should be using an organic or non-gmo broth instead.

ManureTea Since 1924's insight:

Fifteen years ago I went on this amazing hike through a Hemlock forest in the Shenandoah National Park.  Hemlock groves have a wonderful Gothic quality: dark, angular spires of the trunks are contrasted with the intricate tracery of the needles on bended branch.  Ten years later, I convinced my wife to go with me to re-create the experience.  This time, however, all of the Hemlocks were gone—victim to the wooly adelgid.  Brambles and vines stood in the sunny areas where there were once dark groves.

I try to get my natives from plant sales with the local wildflower and master gardener groups; or, order from reputable online nurseries. But I have to admit I was a sucker for these packaged wildflowers in my big box store before Christmas. I don't know if they will even make it but I'm trying anyway.

ManureTea Since 1924's insight:


It's really just a coincidence.  Perfect timing you could say.  I was inspired to make this quinoa salad with citrus after an incredible New Year's Eve dinner at The Village Idiot in Lexington.  A mixed grain feast for both the eyes and the palate, wheat berry, quinoa and farro were tossed together and topped with bright grapefruit and blood orange, the burst of citrus perfectly complementing the light vinaigrette, marrying every element on the plate.

Palette Pointer for Designing with Foliage

Choosing a color palette for a garden space is really no different than choosing a color scheme for a room. It sure is an easy way to look at it isn’t it? We’re all drawn to certain col...
ManureTea Since 1924's insight:

Sometimes your choice of where to start your palette might have to do with tying a particular color back into a particular area. Maybe it’s a color that calms all other colors down, or possibly the spark that lights other colors up. It is not a bad idea to have that one consistent thematic color of foliage in a given area to hold a scene together cohesively.

Yeah, yeah those are great but this week I’ve seen that a good friend will also schlep a caramel cake from San Francisco to Seattle in her carry-on for the sole purpose of sharing it with you. Now that is a good friend.

ManureTea Since 1924's insight:

With the expansion of the greenhouse vegetable production, niche ornamental crop production and the controlled environment agriculture industry in North America, the business can feel like a gold rush. At times, it seems like a flood of new companies are popping up looking to grow or supply the people doing the growing, and with an already established cadre of large growers and suppliers, it can be hard for a company to make it. But for Hort Americas, a horticultural supply company based in Texas, the keys to making it through the 'gold rush' are a focus on grower needs and strong expertise.
