Rhubarb Streusel MuffinsThis recipe was given to me by a close family friend. Finding different uses for rhubarb is a fun challenge, and these muffins are great for entertaining at a Sunday brunch. They are not too sweet and are made with wholewheat flour, bran and a relatively small amount of oil, yet they are moist and delicious. I have also made this recipe at other times of the year using fresh highbush Nova Scotia blueberries. The unique butter they are served with is simple to make, and most people have the staples in their pantry.Blueberry Red Fife Wheat PancakesIn Nova Scotia, spring is the season when maple syrup’s made, and once the syrup’s ready, a plate of warm pancakes isn't far behind. These pancakes start with Canadian Red Fife wheat and are stuffed with either fresh or frozen blueberries, then lightened with the tang of thick, local yoghurt and drizzled with syrup. Warming the maple syrup enhances the aromatics, but it isn’t absolutely necessary.For a wicked-good Nova Scotia meal, serve some breakfast sausages or bacon on the side.
"Cooking locally and seasonally isn't a trend. It's the way it's always been. And this will always be true of great food.
