A very old and well used family cookbook from 1923, Mrs Beeton's Family Cookery, holding the simplest poor man's capers recipe I've found. I'll let you know how they taste in about 3 months time.

|Nasturtiums setting seed now|
Nasturtiums. They have beautifully edible leaves and flowers, and even seed pods.
Ours are setting seed now, the perfect time to collect them and pickle to make poor man's capers - or Pickled Nasturtium Seeds.
After trying my friend Caroline's a few years ago I've always wanted to make my own. Here's the recipe I'm going to try out http://www.gardenbetty.com/2013/01/poor-mans-capers-pickled-nasturtium-pods/

In the forest garden we're letting everything go to seed. In the conventional vege patch at least one of everything. This is the first year we've ever done this, and we're getting magnificent success rates.
All we need to do now is find an easy way to store and categorise our seeds. Any ideas?
