A couple recipes

Have been trying to find the time to put this up. Here's a few more food pictures!

 Pork chop with mashed red and sweet potatoes and a salad on the side with snow peas, green onions, tomatoes.
 Tried the recipe from savoycabbage.org Brown the wedges in a bit of olive oil...
 Then bake them in the oven for 20 minutes at 200...
 Then serve with your CSA Swiss chard and potatoes! Was pretty good. I ate it twice again with leftovers re-fried.
 We also were able to make a simple coleslaw out of the savoy with some poppy seed dressing and shredded carrots.
To make use of several of the CSA ingredients I used this recipe for Swiss chard and corn pizza from Sweet Sugar Bean. Turned out very delicious. Just used a pre-made flatbread for the crust so didn't need as much cooking time. Also added some meat, because we like meat.

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.
