Hakurei Turnip and Apple Salad

Now you are probably wondering what a hakurei turnip is?  It has been cultivated in Japan for thousands of years.  I had never seen or tasted one until it was in my CSA share.  It is a very mild and crisp vegetable that is wonderful in salads.  It can also be cooked as well as it’s greens.  You don’t need to peel it to eat. [Read more]

Depression Recipe for Sweet Potato Pie

 

 

My little taste testers won't admit to sticking a finger in the center of the pie.

I promised Ramona my sweet potato pie recipe last November, which I forgot all about it until Richard commented that he might buy a pie. That got me started thinking I should make one because I had every thing I needed for a quick sweet potato pie. Keep in mind that a sweet potato pie is easy to make and you can't ruin it. [Read more]

Third Week's CSA Box- Adventure in Unusual Vegetables

 

DSCN0224

 

Some of the vegetables from this week. 

This week I went picking tomatoes at the CSA farm. The members were invited to you pick sun gold tomatoes. They are little yellow cherry tomatoes with a very sweet flavor. I have 3 plants of my own that I have had growing in pots. Mine wasn't as sweet as the ones from the farm. Sun gold is indeterminate and grows into a tall vine and the rows at the farm was very tall. I could hardly reach the top so I mostly picked from the bottom and middle. I picked until my shopping tote got heavy. [Read more]
