New England Anchovies for 100 Mile Diet?
- vonwotan Oct 4, 2008 05:39 AM
Are there any local ancovies or sardines for those of us testing the waters of the 100 Mile Diet? I shop primarily in downtown Boston.
We recently realized that we use a lot of anchovies in some of our favourite recipes, this is particularly true of some fall and winter recipes.
I do like the various anchovies sold by La Tienda but alas, for the moment, they are off the menu.
Thanks all for the suggestions. Maybe this is an opportunity to preserve some sardines for myself and to try my hand at garum again.
To think that the New England coast used to be full of canneries in the late nineteenth century. Perhaps, like American caviar, we will also see a renaissance of "sardine" fishing and canning in the US?
