I've been doing a lot of raking and walking through leaves the past few days and I'm really struck by how good and spicy leaves smell.
I wonder if anyone's tried making leaf spice cookies. "Oooh, this one has some good oak." "I prefer this maple one." "You're both dweebs, you haven't had a good cookie until you've had the black locust."
I'm guessing there's a reason we don't eat a lot of leaves though.
