Text from Wikipedia: Lunaria annua, called honesty or annual honesty in English, is a species of flowering plant native to the Balkans and south west Asia, and naturalized throughout the temperate world.

It is an annual or biennial growing to 90 cm (35 in) tall by 30 cm (12 in) broad, with large, coarse, pointed oval leaves with marked serrations. In spring and summer it bears terminal racemes of white or violet flowers, followed by showy, light brown, translucent, disc-shaped seedpods (silicles) the skin of which falls off to release the seeds, revealing a central membrane which is white with a silvery sheen, 3–8 cm (1–3 in) in diameter; they persist on the plant through winter.[1] These pods are much used in floral arrangements.

.

Well, Wikipedia says ===> 90 cm <===! In my Wild-Garden I got one that on 15.07.2014 is already about 1.32 m high!!!

OK, the marinade finished now, WE can bring in the piglet chops and later put the shallow dish with the whole into the fridge where WE leave it for +/- 20 hours. You can also ONLY let it 2 hours in the fridge, but as longer as better…

Cooking: Menus From My Country Luxembourg

As I try since ages (15 years already by 2013) to connect with others on a global view to share values, culture, knowledge, different point of views and mentality in different countries, lets go for sharing what people eat in different countries. I will start with typically menus of my country Luxembourg. YOU are invited by doing the same on YOUR own blogs, it’s an approach for the digital citizen community, who WE are and how WE are living…

As more WE know from each other as BETTER it is for ===> communication <=== for a BETTER world… By knowing a country’s mentality and how people are living, knowing their Lifestyle, it is more easy anyway…

Check the slideshow below, please to see the different menus who are served in a typically Luxembourg household (ONLY where people still know how to cook)…

The above shown images are NOT YET giving details about what it is and how it was cooked, I am planning to post that later in defined posts for each menu… Check out also my french blog here with more menus and detailed HowTo with photos:

Stay tuned for next posts 😉
