Sweet Memories of Chokecherry Syrup

Sweet Memories of Chokecherry Syrup

Standing in the middle of the kitchen, I close my eyes and inhale deeply. A not quite sweet, yet ripe and fragrantly layered juicy scent teases my nose, pulling me toward the stove. I lean over a large pot, blissfully sucking in every possible odor nuance of the bubbling purple-red liquid. My daughter is simmering freshly picked chokecherries. Lovely scent memories from my childhood rise up, enveloping me in the magic of these wild shrub berries.

The Green Goddess

Green Goddess Dressing was created in the 1920’s at San Francisco’s Palace Hotel (once considered the largest hotel in the western United States) by the executive chef, Philip Roemer. This particular dressing was inspired by the actor George Arliss who was staying at the hotel during the time he was performing in the play called The Green Goddess.
