Ken in the Kitchen

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!
