Some more meal ideas...

I love taking pictures of food we made using ingredients from the farm.

 This is a mango, banana, soy milk, and orange juice smoothie with some kale added in to give it that green colour and a vitamin boost. You could do that with any combination of fruits or yogurt you like. Even add in a sweetener like honey or maple syrup.
  Parboiled new red potatoes cut in halves then fried with spices and oil is a great side dish. Beet greens, with a big or small beet attached are delicious boiled whole with some salt and butter or margarine on top. Greens like bok choy, kale, swiss chard mixed with onions, snow peas, green onion fried with oils and spices are great as well. Can you tell we like to fry things?

Island Taylored Meats preservative-free sausages on a whole grain bun with a salad of mixed lettuces, cucumber, and tomato. Also on the side is a mix of garlic scapes, onion, kale, joi choi, sweet red Italian braising pepper, and spices.

Cucumbers!

We have cucumbers. If we get rain this week we will have a lot of cucumbers. Our favourite types of cucumbers are Marketmore and Poona Kheera they are both tasty and make great pickles. Poona Kheera also can be used in stir-fries and chutneys. It is an unusual cucumber it has a white to yellow skin that changes to brownish red as it matures. Eat it as you would any other cucumber. A little grand-daughter of one sharer loves Poona Kheera so much at three years old she would gobble down a whole cucumber. Here is a recipe that we use:

Aunt Anna’s Mustard Pickles
10 cups cucumbers peel, remove the seeds and chop into roughly 1/2 inch chunks (7-9 cucumbers)
1-quart onions diced (6-8 white onions)
1-quart celery and cauliflower diced (2 cups of each)
1 red pepper diced (2 if you want more colour)
4 tablespoons pickling salt
Cover with 4 tablespoons pickling salt and water. Leave overnight. Drain well.
Sauce
4 cups vinegar
6 cups sugar
4 tablespoons dry mustard
1 cup flour
1 teaspoons turmer…

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.
