From within half a mile of our house, The Mister and I have recently eaten:
- chicken of the woods (a.k.a. "sulfur shelf) a super-tasty mushroom sauteed and folded into a fritatta.
- chestnuts roasted in the oven
- paw-paws picked by a student. I love the custardy fruitiness of a paw-paw
- apples from the vacant lot peeled (because they are incredibly scabby) and baked into a pie and then others cooked with a little port and sorghum (hand-milled in Eastern Kentucky) until soft
- tomatoes, squash, okra and herbs from our garden
- habeneros from a student's garden
Of course, there are deer, squirrels, pigeons, Canada geese and ground hogs in the vicinity, but we've abstained from eating our rodent friends and their friends.
Who needs a whole 100 miles?
