January 16, 2017 Drought over?

Sometimes we should express our gratitude for the small and simple things like the scent of the rain, the taste of your favorite food, or the sound of a loved one’s voice.
-Joseph B. Wirthli
Dear Friends,
     What a blessing these rains have been.  Looks like we might have more coming our way this week.  Hum, any chance water department might lower our rates?  Humor for the day.
     Here’s a quick, easy, healthy recipe for strawberries:
                   Healthy Strawberry Oatmeal Bars

The easiest, best strawberry oatmeal bars with butter crumb topping. One bowl, simple ingredients, and 100% whole grain-perfect for a snack or dessert!
Yield: 1 8×8 inch pan (16 small or 9 large)
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 35 minutes
Total Time: 55 minutes (plus cool time)

Ingredients:

For the Strawberry Bars:

  • 1 cup old fashioned rolled oats (gluten free if needed)
  • 3/4 cup white whole wheat flour (or substitute all purpose flour or 1:1 baking flour to make gluten free)
  • 1/3 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted (or substitute melted coconut oil to make vegan/dairy-free)
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice (from about 1/2 small lemon)
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar, divided
  • 2 cups, small-diced strawberries (10 ounces)

For the Vanilla Glaze (optional but delicious, especially if you prefer a sweeter bar):

  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar, sifted
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon milk (any kind you like)

Directions:

  1. Place a rack in the center of your oven and heat to 375 degrees F. Line an 8-by-8-inch baking pan with parchment paper so that the paper overhangs two sides like “handles.”
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the oats, 3/4 cup flour, brown sugar, ginger, and salt. Pour in the melted butter and stir until it forms clumps and the dry ingredients are evenly moistened. Set aside 1/2 cup of the crumble mixture, then press the rest into an even layer in the bottom of the prepared pan.
  3. Scatter half of the strawberries over the crust. Sprinkle the cornstarch evenly over the top, then sprinkle on the lemon juice, and 1/2 tablespoon of the granulated sugar. Scatter on the remaining berries, then the remaining 1/2 tablespoon sugar. Sprinkle the reserved crumbs evenly over the top. You will have some fruit showing through.
  4. Bake the bars for 35 to 40 minutes, until the fruit is bubbly and the crumb topping smells toasty and looks golden. Place the pan on a wire rack to cool completely (you can speed this process along in the refrigerator).
  5. While the bars cool, prepare the glaze: in a medium bowl, briskly whisk together the powdered sugar, vanilla, and milk until smooth. Feel free to add more milk if a thinner consistency is desired. Using the parchment paper handles, lift the bars from the pan. Drizzle with glaze, slice, and serve.
     We have freshly roasted coffee and yummy honey available on the Green Store.  All add on orders are most appreciated.

Sweet flowers are slow and weeds make haste.
-William Shakespeare
Dear Friends,
  What a beautiful Sunday we had in San Diego! Today’s going to be quite a challenge however as we will be harvesting in the rain.  As we start our 29th year of growing, the years roll through my mind filled with so many wonderful images..gorgeous vegetables and flowers, happy children holding fresh eggs, frolicking goats and horses, luncheons, weddings, concerts, and classes  galore.  We certainly like to think we’ve contributed to the health and well-being of our wonderful shareholders.
     We have freshly roasted coffee and yummy honey available on the Green Store.  All add on orders are most appreciated.

December 26, 2016 – 2017 and Prosperity

Advice from a tree:
Stand tall and proud
Go out on a limb
Remember your roots
Drink plenty of water
Be content with your natural beauty
Enjoy the view
-unknown
Dear Friends,
     We all have a few more days before we have to train our brains to remember writing 2017 instead of 2016.  My research found the number 17 is responsible for insight, responsibility, self-discipline, strength, compassion, spiritual consciousness, and wisdom, a desire for peace and love for all humanity.  I’d say those are pretty good goals to keep in mind along with of course, the awareness of general health, well-being and good nutrition to help us all along our way.
     Another goal for most of us is financial security and we’d like to think our ingredients for this week will help!  Included in this weeks items is the package of what some might think is the lowly back-eyed pea but southern tradition says cooked greens symbolize dollar bills and the peas, coins so if you want a prosperous year, start it right by cooking up a pot (slow cooker works well too) of Greens and Black-eyed Peas.  And they’re delicious and nutritious.
                             Black-eyed peas and Greens
    Call or email me if you need cooking tips.  Happy to oblige.

December 19, 2016 Happy Holidays!

“We must take care of our families wherever we find them.”
-Elizabeth Gilbert
Dear Friends,
     There’s nothing like a good 24 hour rain storm blowing through San Diego to make us growers happy.  And then, although nippy at night, to have our glorious sunshine to bask in during the day.  What a wonderful gift to us all.
     May each and every one of you have a wonderful week-end hopefully with family and good friends.
     Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah to all our friends and loyal shareholders.  To those of you donating your CSA share while out of town, we thank you for giving to our most appreciative and deserving local military families.
    Call or email me if you need cooking tips.  Happy to oblige.

December 12, 2016 Crazy About Seeds

Love in each season as it passes;
breathe the air, drink the drink,
taste the fruit, and resign
yourself to influences of each.
-Henry David Thoreau
Dear Friends,
     As the days swirl past, we all feel the extra pressure of shortened daylight and still so many things to do.  Anything we can do in the kitchen to speed things up and still provide fresh good food can be a challenge.  I suggest the weekly habit of putting on a pot of water and simmer your scraps of veggies…onion, scallions, garlic, broccoli stems (or chard, spinach, celery, potato)  ..whatever.  This broth can be the base for many a hearty pot of beans, lentils or just plain good sipping.
      We love ‘seeds’ in our kitchen..mustard, caraway, sunflower, pine nuts, walnuts, pecans you name it.  But among the favorites are sesame seeds.  So good roasted or made into tahini.  Sprinkle on all kinds of things for taste and crunch. Tahini (like peanut butter only made with sesame seeds is easy to make), makes the delicious base as a sauce for cauliflower and broccoli..winter Queens.  Roast or steam your vegetables and whip up this easy sauce:
                                   Tahini sauce
     2 T tahini, well mixed
     1 T lemon juice
     1 T water (to think the sauce if needed)
     1 garlic love, minced
     1/4 salt and ground black pepper
      1/4 c minced parsley, baby celery, or Salad burnett
     In bowl, whisk together the ingredients.  Add to cooked cauliflower or broccoli and toss.  Serve while warm.
Our eggs are easy to order from the Green Store.
     We’re renewed in our commitment to provide more good food products to our local military families that reach out to us.  You can help by either buying an amount per month of your choice to be given to a family and/or share the information through the web’s social channels.  It all helps the momentum.  Together we can make a difference..
    Call or email me if you need cooking tips.  Happy to oblige.

December 5, 2016 One Hundred Seventeen Years Old and Still Kicking!

It may be the cock that crows, but it is the hen that lays the eggs.
– Margaret Thatch
Dear Friends,
     Did you see the article on the lady that is 117 years old and eats 3 eggs a day?  As you know, I’m always carrying on about eating fresh good food including eggs and your fruits and vegetables.  I passionately believe that how and by whom food is produced is important.    Small family farms are disappearing as large corporate, for the bottom line only businesses (I don’t call them farms) produce ‘food’ that comes to you in boxes and containers or restaurants or fast food ‘joints’.  But our eggs are from chickens that run free during the day eating plants and bugs and such and are closed in at night for protection.  Combine some eggs this week (breakfast, lunch, dinner or snacks) along with your other items this week for some easy yummy, healthy dishes.
     Our eggs are easy to order from the Green Store.
     Here are a couple links with some fabulous ideas and recipes!
                              
                                                  Bon Appetit!
                                                  And another!
     We’re renewed in our commitment to provide more good food products to our local military families that reach out to us.  You can help by either buying an amount per month to be given to a family and/or share the information through the web’s social channels.  It all helps the momentum.  Together we can make a difference..

November 14, 2016 Heads Up For Week of 21st

I’ve been cautioned to surrender – this I can not do.
Leonard Cohen
Dear Friends,
     Next week (the week of the 21ist), will be Thanksgiving so our delivery schedule has to change.  Wednesday deliveries will stay the same however Thursday’s will be on Tuesday.  I know this is disruptive to your schedules.  We’ll be back in line on the following week.
     Here are some tips for this week’s items:
                             Broccoli and Shallots
     Shallots are a little bit of a pain to peel and slice but so worth it.
     Heat a little clarified butter or coconut oil in a sauce pan on medium low.  Add sliced shallots and let caramelize, about 15 to 20 minutes. Meanwhile, cut broccoli into little heads.  Save the stalk forshredding to use for salads or soup base.  Steam for about 4 minutes. Set aside covered, and save the liquid for a vegetable stock. When shallots are caramelized, add broccoli and a little salt/pepper if you’d like, heat through and serve.  Delicious and nutritious.
    As our evenings are here earlier and things are cooling down, I like to have a soup as part of dinner.  One of my favorites is a carrot bisque.  It’s so easy to make and I like a dollop of creme fraiche on top – especially if it’s been an outdoor working day.  It’s quite simple really and I have my own way of doing it but since we’re always promoting family interaction over food, thought you might enjoy this mother’s writing and photos.
                                 Pioneer Woman Carrot Soup
