What's for Dinner #327-The Scotland Votes Edition!

my son says you are trolling
slightly off topic-
there are many types of tea. Teas- first flush Darjeeling-Assam-Matcha-Baozhong- Korean woojeon green tea are all teas but are quite different from each other.
I also detest the taste of poorly brewed tea and poor quality of tea leaves

arrived safely at Newark(N.J.)International Airport yesterday.
The flight had lots of turbulence but the jet arrived 20 minutes early.
My son and I went for dinner out at Korean owned a-y-c-e sushi place-the quality was very good and not too expensive. In this part of Northern N.J. there are many Korean restaurants as well as a Han Ah Rheum(HMart)
Next time, I have sushi-next week, it will be at Mitsuwa Marketplace in Edgewater, N.J. the best Japanese market in this part of N.J.

Looking for a substitute for preserved lemons

they are easy to make-
just salt/lemon/lemon juice

in place of the preserved lemon-just add lemon/salt/lj

I have a jar of preserved meyer lemons which are almost ready.

The one thing that I miss are the change of seasons.
In Southeast Florida there is little change-although, I don't like snow, sleet, and cold temperatures.
I miss the starting a garden in Spring, watching the flowers grow,
Fall foilage, etc.

Can you pickle celery?

In making old fashioned barrel tomato pickles-they always had celery in with them-we used to refer to the celery as "the garbage". This was in The Bronx and also in lower east side in Manhattan.
It was delicious.
