Garlic scapes and more

Hi everyone,
Tomorrow's basket will include:
Joi choi
Kale
Radish
Lettuce mix
Bunching onion
Swiss Chard
English cucumber
Garlic scapes- stalk of garlic plant that's going to blossom. A nice mild garlicy flavour. Use it in stir fry, make into pesto, freeze it chopped up, or put it in soups.



We will also have some romaine lettuce for sale.
We'll be at a table outside from 9-11 at least.
James also wanted to share what he likes to do with radishes. They are delicious if you slice them thin and put them with some salt and pepper in a bowl of vinegar.

He also likes to make radish sandwiches where you spread generous layers of mayo on two slices of bread and thin slices of radish with salt and pepper. You can put them after they've pickled for a while in a bowl of vinegar or just have them plain. Homemade bread and mayo makes it even better.
See you tomorrow!

Chive blossom vinegar

To make chive blossom vinegar we trim off the flowers from chives and soak them in vinegar for a couple weeks. The chive flowers infuse the vinegar with a garlicky flavour and a beautiful pink hue. This can be used as a flavoured vinegar for salad dressings, dips, to sprinkle on fish or fries, or for a bowl of cucumber slices.


A ready batch.


Clean jars.


The light shining through the pink vinegar. So pretty.

Here's a recipe for a vinaigrette made with chive blossom vinegar.

Strawberries

We're expecting to have extra berries after our CSA sharers have gotten theirs. If you would like a crate or two for making jam, or maybe just a couple boxes for snacking, please give us a call. They are $4.50/box, $54/crate.

Red, green, and savoy cabbage

Cabbage red or green is not just good for jigg's dinner (also known as 'corned beef & cabbage' or simply 'boiled dinner'), it's great for sauerkraut, roasted vegetables, coleslaw, and stir fry. This yummy quinoa soup recipe uses cabbage and all kinds of other veggies.


Red cabbage-  A great source of vitamin C, vitamin K, and anti-oxidants this cabbage can be shredded in a raw coleslaw, chopped for a soup, or shredded into sauerkraut or kimchi.


Savoy cabbage - This round cabbage is vitamin and fiber rich. You can roast it, make cabbage rolls,  even put it in soup . Read more about the health and nutritional benefits here.
