    I am sharing some of my extended family experience. I have prepared a kim chee of local organic greens from Bay End Farm with local organic chives, organic garlic, fresh ginger and sesame leaves. The sesame leaves are the point of my story. One of my brothers, while serving in the military in Korea, married a beautiful Korean woman, my sister in law, Yong Sil. On her first visit to this country, pregnant with their first child, she spoke and understood very little English. The American culture was even more foreign to her. Yong and I built our relationship around food. We cooked and prepared food together. I found the foods that she was missing in her customary diet. We did not need a lot of words, we became sisters over the stove. She is back visiting her family in Korea so I visited her garden to harvest some of the sesame leaves that she had planted a few years back from seeds that she brought with her from Korea. This particular plant is a perennial and thrives in our climate. I have garnered the knowledge of preparing many different types of kim chee over our 20 plus years together. From my family experience I share our relationship with you in honor of my Korean sister. 1/2 pint locally sourced kim chee for friends $4.00

Harvest and Cooks Notes

  • REIN’S REAL RYE


    Available this week are 6 varieties: Caraway Rye, RyeBerry Rye, Swedish Rye, Tarragon Rye, Flax Rye and Russian Rye. We forgot how great the Flax Rye was because it’s been so long since we made it!

    About the photos: Thought you might like to see what my kitchen looks like after the heat of battle. Flour everywhere and 64 loaves of rye bread cooling on the speed rack. Phew!

  • Plato’s Harvest Organic Farm

    No one told the vegetables and weeds that there was a holiday this past week. Peas came and went, zucchini fit for David Ortiz, and lettuce bolting in the sun. And the weeds…. There are some weeks when working in an air conditioned cube sounds pretty good. We’re busy killing weeds and tying tomatoes and hoping for it either to rain or to stop raining.

    I’ll be bringing lettuce, kale, chard, beets, carrots, fennel, cabbage, radish, salad turnips, eggs, new potatoes and green garlic, cucumbers, summer squash and possibly organic sweet corn (!!) this week. I also have a fresh batch of whole chickens, averaging four pounds. Tomatoes are coming on strong, but will be another two or three weeks, with peppers and eggplant on the same schedule. Know your farmer, don’t take vegetables from strangers!

    Thanks for your support.

    TRY THIS | Brine chicken in one cup of salt and one gallon of water for six hours. Drizzle with olive oil and green garlic and roast at 350 until done (about one hour). While the chicken is cooking throw whole beets into a steamer and let steam for about fifteen minutes, until you can stick a fork in them. This is a good time to open and let your wine breathe. Run the beets under cold water and peel the skin off with your fingers. Saute the greens and put on a platter. Slice the beets and arrange them on top of the greens. Drizzle with red wine vinegar and salt. Serve hot or chilled. Slice zucchini lengthwise and drizzle with olive oil and salt and grill. Peel and slice cucumbers, add chopped basil, drizzle with olive oil and salt and serve chilled. A nice Jenny’s peasant bread completes the meal.

  • Family Secrets Bakery

    Planning on bringing oatmeal based cookies (original, chocolatta, harvest, grapevine, oaty, holiday, south water key, peanut butter, scotties), sugar and lemon sugar cookies, animal crackers, ginger snaps, chocolate chip cookies. Pies might be pecan, strawberry, mixed berry, blueberry (using last season berries). Might be bringing lemon, chocolate, and fruit tarts. Sweet breads on tap will be cream cheese pound, coconut pound, lemon pound, lemon blueberry pound, banana, banana nut, coconut banana, banana blueberry strawberry, chocolate, zucchini, zucchini carrot, chocolate zucchini, strawberry. If time permits, single items may be brownies, monster sugar cookies, and muffins.

    TRY THIS | Cream Cheese Pound cake is great with warm apricot preserves, whipped cream, or a little dab of butter. Oatmeal Chocolate chip cookies are great with a little bit of Vanilla Ice Cream from Evergreen Ice Cream for that homemade ice cream sandwich taste.

    As a teaser, I hope to have something beautiful made with raspberries from Web of Life Farm. Farmer Donna told me she would be harvesting then the torrential rains came. We will have to wait to see how the raspberries fared the weather. I will have pate made with chicken livers from farmer Dave, Plato’s Harvest Farm. Beautiful crisp Cole slaw, cabbage soup with Brown Boar Farm Ham, our local favorite beverage Rhubarb punch, a few sandwiches made to order with local eggs and local chicken for chicken salad. More to come as market day approaches. Thank you for visiting.
