Duck, duck, dukkah!

Throw this together and serve it on anything smooth to liven it up!


  • 1/2 c. shelled pistachios
  • 2 T. sesame seeds
  • 2 tsp. coriander seeds
  • 2 tsp. cumin seeds
  • 1/2 tsp. fennel seeds
  • 1/4 tsp. whole black peppercorns
  • 1 tsp. kosher salt
Toast pistachios in dry skillet over medium low heat, stirring occasionally until golden, about 6 min. Remove from skillet to cool. Add remaining ingredients, except salt to skillet and toast 1-2 min, until fragrant. Remove from skillet to cool. Put all ingredients into a food processor and grind coarsely.
Serve in pureed soups, plain yogurt, on peanut butter, and use your imagination! Make more and save in the freezer for instant crunch!

Ok, another photo....

In the spirit of sharing our visual world.... if you have been here in the dry season, you probably never actually got to see how it looks to have water doing it's seasonal job in our canyons.  Here is a quick shot I took one day in 2010....
Rain carving it's way down the canyon.

Photography at Kelly Place?

I (Marc, not Furby) have been taking hundreds of great photos of the large scale landscape as well as the small minute world near the grounds here at Kelly Place and I plan to select some of the phot's and get them on here for you to see. Here's a first pic. taken around fall 2009, great colors!
