July 11, 2016 Ready to Blanch? - Seabreeze Family Farm San Diego

July 11, 2016 Ready to Blanch?

There can be no other occupation like gardening in which, if you were to creep up behind someone at their work, you would find them smiling. – Mirabel Osler
Dear Friends,
     Thank heavens we’ve had normal San Diego weather so far this summer.  Cool temperatures and a nice ocean breeze makes for happy harvesting.
     As you’ve noticed, summer tomatoes and squashes are maturing like mad and let’s be honest, sometimes we just get tired of trying to be creative with squash especially.  But no need to despair, blanching just about anything (green beans, tomatoes, kale, squash, et al) is so easy to blanch and then freeze and you’ll be glad to find the treasures tucked away in your freezer when the season is over.
                                     How to Blanch
Another item this week you may not be familiar with is the bunch of greens with little spoon shaped leaves on it.  It’s called purslane and is an excellent source of omega -3 fatty acids, rare in plants:
                      Health benefits and recipes for purslane
The celery this week is very good and I’ll be making a Yukon gold potato salad with good hard boiled farm eggs, home made mayonnaise, green onions and maybe some florets of broccoli.  Yum.
     Call or email me if you need cooking tips.  Happy to oblige.
