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.

We made green chile sauce and RJR salsa

We made several batches of salsa and then we had so many green tomatoes we made a few batches of green tomato chile sauce. We ate the extra salsa still hot yummy.




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.
