Farm Share Week 6: July 8-10, 2015

It’s already week 6 for our farm share boxes and July is cruising by just as quickly for me as the rest of the year has.  This week I am attempting to make kale chips for the first time-we have a potato chip addiction in our house and it would be lovely to find a healthy alternative that my almost 3 year old son will eat.  After doing some research I found a nice blog with a great recipe with lots of tips and tricks.  Here is the link to the Flawless baked kale chip recipe.

Everyone can look forward to these lovely items in your boxes this week:

-rainbow ‎swiss chard
-green beans        
-snow peas           
-sugar snap peas
-chinese cabbbage 
-chicory or bok choy

Whole (same as above with)
-black kale
-green onions
-bok choy
-red leaf lettuce

Last year I froze/saved all of my currents and made a black current/red current jam that my family really enjoyed and I plan on doing the same this year.  If your unsure of what to use your red or black currents for here are a few recipe ideas that you can try them out on 🙂

A couple of breakfast options-Black currant smoothie and other jucied recipes and a lovely muffin recipe.
For all the dessert lovers a black currant and white chocolate creme brulee.
Last but not least a black currant sauce for red meat.

Remember if you have any questions about your boxes contents-or recipe ideas don’t hesitate to ask, Jennifer or myself will happily help in any way we can.  Enjoy your boxes this week and have a great rest of the week/weekend!

StephanieMy name is Stephanie Hofman and this is my 5th year with the farm share program. I am an earth loving hippie-follower of Christ-lover of all people and love to try new things. I am not a blogger outside of zephyr organics-so please keep this in mind as I continue to learn the in's and out's of what it means to create a good blog and to be a good blogger!My family and I do our best to make everything at home from scratch, but we are not fully organic, non-GMO, nor are we dairy free or gluten free. I do my best with what I have and am slowly but surely making changes towards a more healthy lifestyle.I try and keep the recipes that I share to encompass all diets-some will be desserts, some will be juicing recipes (last year I failed epically at my juicing fast-FYI don't add 'more kale' just to use it up in a recipe) some gluten and dairy free-some vegan and many in between.Most of the items in the box I am familiar with now-but a few years ago I didn't know what bokchoy was nor had I ever heard of swiss chard-now they are my 2 favourite items to get in my box!I'm a free going spirit who has taught herself most things and love to help others out since I've only become who I am and gotten to where I am in life because of the love and generosity of those who've I've encountered. I've never been very good at spelling nor have I been very computer savvy. Any feedback and suggestions are always welcome.Thank you so much for joining us on this journey towards supporting local farmers and supporting the growing organic food movement. May your box bless you and your family all season long and I look forward to sharing my recipe successes and failures with you.View all posts by Stephanie →
