Beet Greens

A perk of having a high tunnel is that you can eat fresh produce even when there is an arctic blast!!
Here is a delicious recipe that I was inspired to make earlier:

beet greens with almonds
1 bunch of beet greens cut into strips
3 Tbsp of oil or bacon drippings
1/4 cup almonds
salt and pepper to taste

Warm the oil in a pan and add the beat greens. Cover and let steam for about 4 minutes, until they are soft but still retain their crunch and are vibrant. Add the almonds and salt and pepper to taste. Serve and enjoy!



2014 = The Year of the Family Farm

2014 = The Year of the Family Farm

Here is a shout out to the millions of family farms all over the world, the backbone of food systems world wide. 2014 has been declared the International Year of Family FarmingĀ so make it part of your New Year’s Resolution to support local farms in your areas. To do this, join a CSA (community supported agriculture), shop weekly at local farmers’ markets, and look for signs highlighting local farms at stores like Whole Foods and Earth Fare. Without our farmers we would not have food on our table, so make sure to thank them by supporting them with your conscientious purchases. Happy 2014!

Fresh air activates the appetite

Toast a thick slice of your favorite hearty bread (for me it’s my mama’s). Add thinly sliced cheese while it’s still warm, the last of the summer basil, and leftover steak from your organic cows. Bon Appetit!
