So, parsnips, carrots, neep, and …wasn’t very sure of the name of the odd-looking ‘root’ I found in my community garden veg box! Turns out it was celeriac – not easy to pronounce, let alone know how to cook it! Thank goodness, my ‘foodie’ step-daughter was at hand to make these delicious veggie chips. Enjoy! (We did!). You will find recipes for other winter veg in my veg box in my previous blog.

I grew up on a farm in the NE of Scotland so have always had a close affinity to land and growing my own food. As a family we ate only what was in season and preserved fruit and vegetables if there was a glut. I am still passionate about cutting air miles on the food I eat. I’m lucky to live close to the Tayport Community Garden and pop in regularly for advice and produce.
