Shiso update

leave a comment »

The shiso crop is going great guns. Today I brought home a little box of sushi for lunch and enjoyed a shiso leaf with every bite, with plenty of leaves still to be harvested. The Eldest called with a recipe for a shiso martini: a regular martini, but with a twist of lime and a shiso leaf float in it in lieu of an olive. We talked about possibly trying sake instead of dry vermouth.

If you didn’t grow shiso this year, give it a go for next year. Very easy to grow (my shiso patch is a disposable roasting pan filled with potting soil, sitting on the balcony), and very tasty to eat.
