VJ’s Weekly Challenge #110 – smell

“How long do you boil the corn?”

“I don’t know.”

“What do you mean, you don’t know?”

“It’s done when it smells right.”

This is why I can never replicate a recipe. I literally follow my nose.

What is your relationship to smell? (Don’t tell me you didn’t know this was coming, lol.)

Look forward to reading your responses. Just create a post and link back here. All welcome.

  1. I check the doneness of corn with the tine of a fork into one of the kernels. I do find that much of my growing years is remembered through smell: creosote, the ocean, seaweed, wild flowers, rain on the forest floor, pine trees. The list goes on!

  2. I can relate it to indian cooking. The granda ma generation and the generations before never really repy on exact measurement. They just know what is right. Their explanation was you see, you feel and you smell. Done.
