Ken loves to cook. Many people know Ken as a potter, many know Ken as a farmer, as a builder of buildings, and so many other things. Ken put himself through college doing two things: construction work and cooking. He takes time in winter to cook. He often takes on a project - find sugar plum or fig pudding recipes, ham without nitrites, bread from whole grains, making his own candied fruit without artificial color for fruitcake to name a few. this year he wants to return to baking bread. So yesterday he baked a loaf from whole grains he had rolled and soaked overnight.
He also did a Finnish ham - brined overnight then stuck with cloves, and baked with a mustard glaze. Both were delicious!
