March 14, 2016 Put ‘Green’ on Your Plate
“When you cook,
you are not just working on food,
you are working on yourself,
you are working on others.”
I believe that the best food comes from the simple and thoughtful preparation of excellent ingredients.
It’s a ‘green’ week. Our lovingly tended winter crops are perfect now with the most welcomed rains. One of them this week is the little bunch of greens with sort of a heart shaped leaf called Claytonia or Miner’s Lettuce. When the miners, during the California gold rush wintered over in the mountains, they had precious little fresh produce. With the beginnings of spring, this charming plant would pop up near springs or streams and be a most welcomed nutrient therefore the name ‘Miner’s Lettuce’. Miner’s lettuce is high in vitamin C, beta carotene and protein. It has a delicate lime flavor and doesn’t need to be cooked or smothered in a heavy sauce.
Our chickens are producing again, so take advantage and order from our Seabreeze Green Store.
If any one is interested in volunteering, we most whole heartedly welcome you to participate on a Saturday morning. Please call or email to make arrangements. It’s a beautiful time of year!
All on-line orders and referrals for new stakeholders welcomed and appreciated.
We’re always grateful for our loyal supporters. This last food producing farm in Carmel Valley is important for a lot of reasons and donations always welcomed!
Hope you’re enjoying and benefiting from your deliveries. A lot of old fashioned hard work and planning makes it possible. And grown with love and care..of course.
Call or email me if you need cooking tips. Happy to oblige.
