I remember a time in the distant past when I actually enjoyed the winter...but oh how things have changed. Working on a farm and actually having the be outside in the winter weather has drastically changed my perspective on the winter season. Love the greens, hate the cold!
We've just about got everything covered up in anticipating of the biting frost. There's very little frost damage so far THANK GOODNESS!!! All the strawberries are just about in too. Lots and lots of delicious strawberries!
Hopefully everyone is having a happy and stress-free holiday season and getting to share all of your yummy CSA bag contents with friends and family. I've been making any and everything imaginable with greens. Soups, salads, stir fries, kimchi... anything I can think of! Here's a quick fix for kale dip:
Take out your handy dandy food processor and put in as much kale will fit, then put in a clove of garlic, some soy sauce, a dash or two of any type of vinegar ( i prefer rice vinegar), 1/2 can chick peas, 1/2 bell pepper or any type of sweet pepper you have laying around, a dash of sesame oil and another dash of evoo. Then puree the kale away and enjoy a quick energy fix. Great on crackers, bread, rice, or all by its lonesome!
