2014 week 4
Kohlrabi-- I know this is a weird one. But trust me it is good and easy to use.
--Here is a link to make the famous Kohlrabi Ham Bake
--Here is a link to a post I wrote on Kohlrabi
--Here is a link to my favorite Yellow Squash Casserole
--Yellow Squash is also delicious grilled. Link to recipe.
Kirby pickles-- you can use these just like cucumbers, but they are especially great for pickling.
--here is a link to a great refrigerator pickle recipe
Swiss Chard--The secret to Swiss chard is understanding that it is really two vegetables in one. The sturdy stems that come in all kinds of colors which take a little time to cook and soften, and the leaves which wilt very quickly. In my mind I equate Swiss chard very closely to spinach. You can exchange chard leaves in just about any recipe that calls for spinach. And it will turn out wonderfully. I put Swiss chard in my Minestrone Soup. . . YUM-O!
All of us here at Buzby Farm would like to thank all of you who attend the Spring Open House. We had a great time getting to know you and showing you around the farm.
