Hi Joey, a few photos of bread!!
A Fantastic Local Cape Ann Recipe: “ Nisu” from the Finnish Community on the North of Cape Ann, who came as stonecutters for the local granite in the 1800’s.
This recipe is on page 95 of my book “ The Legacy of Three Melissas” ( available on Amazon $2.99 on Kindle and $17.00 paperback) which is a collection of historic Cape Ann Recipes and associated stories from my family’s many local Bakery, Restaurant & Inn businesses during the the 20th century.

This recipe is one of those really delicious things that came to me via my sister Shelley Laine, who got it from Jack Chisholm from East Gloucester, Brad Chisholm’s father who got it from a woman named Vivian in Lanesville circa 1966. Typical Cape Ann Provenance.The real secret to making this loaf super authentic is to use a mortar & pestle to grind the Cardamon seeds. You can use ground cardamon but the real way is to use a mortar & pestle to grind the spice, you buy the cardamon pods and take the seeds out of the center. You also must brush the buttered loaves with leftover strong coffee and then sprinkle with sugar. A delicacy of the highest order! #nisu #nisubread #capeann #historiccapeannrecipes #melissaabbott #eastgloucester #lanesville #bayview #rockportma #finnishcommunity #breadmaking #breadbaking #legacyofthreemelissas #capeannrecipes

GloucesterCast Virgins Death Row Meal/Sub Picks Jimmy Douglass Fred Shrigley
It’s a tradition on May Day to “ding dong ditch” flowers for special loved ones and neighbors. Pretend your doorbell just rang and you found these! Happy May Day. I’m very happy to turn the calendar to a brand new month. April was tough…..here’s to May!
Just what you’ve been waiting for and as promised, here’s the reveal of the results of the podcast virgin responses to Joey’s questions: You’re on Death Row and allowed whatever you like to order, so “What sub are you ordering as your last sub and from where?”. This insightful question is followed up with “What’s your last meal and from where?”. Here are the results compiled from the “COVID era” podcast virgin responses. These results will be updated semi-regularly whenever I feel like it.
