Proof of concept

14 04 2009

It may seem like I’ve converted to Pastafarianism, but I’m just taking advantage of the nettles before they get full of flea beetles. This time I made fettucine.

I decided to test my idea of freezing the nettles in the form of pasta so I generously floured them and froze two batches in freezer containers. If they freeze well without breaking or otherwise getting destroyed, I’ll make more but pack them with the vacuum sealer. They would get frosty in these containers with longer storage.

Since it was just me tonight, I made a quick sauce of sun-dried tomatoes, peppers and peas for all the scraps.
