The first sign of Autumn.
Squirrel looking for nuts to stash away for the cold winter months.
It’s late into the season and surprisingly Grandma’s garden still looks luscious green.
Her Lao herb Pak Kayang.
Her eggplants look different from mine, the flower is purple instead of white.
She planted a small rice paddy also.
She harvested the young rice pods to make Kao Mao for us to try. These are a little bit more mature than what she would normally pick to make Kao Mao.
Add a little water and heat on stove.
Stir until the water is completely dry.
This is fully cooked.
She used a blender to remove the shells.
Removing the shells the old fashion way.
What’s left is the tasty Kao Mao, young sticky rice for desert.
I will add exif data when I have more time.
