Epicurean Kentuckian: Cooking with Herbs from (Y)OUR garden

2013-08-22 - Shelby Co., KY - Photo by Pen. At Christmas in July, my family's major reunion, the most memorable dish - and the food was fantastic at all the meals we had in Shelbyville - the one I can't get out of my mind is this awesomely (put in EvanSpeak, "Infinity Awesomely") simple dishes, which redeemed a food I'm not particularly fond of - Honeydew. From childhood I had never understood why Honeydews were needed when cantaloupes and watermelons were so much better. Now I know. They are an excellent complement to the an herb which is synonymous with Kentucky: Mint. Being a frequent teetotallarian and eschewing that other mint concoction, and not being willing to mention it's indescribably deliciousness and mellowing qualities; and with the Adair County Garden Club's Class today on "Cooking with Herbs from Your Garden," Class at 1pmCT at the Chamber Building, 201 Burkesville Street, Columbia, KY and with the possibility they may overlook this dish, now therefore - The Epicurean Kentuckian offers this dish: Honeydew melon sprinkled with Backyard Kentucky mint, with lime juice - native to the Shelbyville, KY, Kroger Store. - ED WAGGENER
