Catalogs have finally started to find me at the new house again. A good thing/bad thing kind of deal. One good catalog that came the other day was The Baker’s Catalogue from King Arthur Flour. As I thumbed through it over lunch, I found a recipe that I knew I had to try: Ginger-Carrot Muffins. With cardamom and crystallized ginger, they sounded interesting and delicious. I had to modify the recipe just a bit to fit the ingredients I had on hand, but I followed the recipe pretty closely. The result was tasty indeed. They didn’t have as much bite from the ginger as I expected, so I'd likely try a full 1/2 cup of crystallized ginger next time around.
I'll be working on getting the recipes posted for January's VRC. I don't have as many participants as I was hoping, but the recipes they have sent in look wonderful! If you have a recipe you'd like to contribute, it's not too late. I'll put a link on the sidebar and keep adding recipes as they come in or as I try more myself.
