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.

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.
