Farm Share week 7 July 16-19, 2014

Jul 16, 2014 | Uncategorized

Week 7 of your farm share has arrived! The variety that the boxes will bring you this week will surely bring a lovely mix up to your meals all week long 🙂

The carrots are big and beautiful-and we also have collard greens!  I must admit I’ve never really known what to do with them but there are quite a few options other than just cutting them off their stems and sauteing them up or adding them to salad.  This weeks recipe is a wonderful side (or I’m sure you could add more meat to them and make them a main dish similar to cabbage rolls) that I can’t wait to make!

Here is a link to the recipe: Note that they are using frozen collard greens but we have fresh ones so I’m sure it will be even more amazing 🙂!

  •  collard greens
  • 8 ounces of chicken stock
  • 1 tsp. of granulated garlic ,crushed red pepper, onion powder and kosher salt. (salt will not be added until greens are cooked)
  • 1/2 medium onion chopped
  • 2 strips of thick cut nitrate free bacon roughly chopped
  • egg roll wrappers
  1. In a cast iron pot fry bacon until crispy remove from pan add onion cook until translucent, add greens seasonings and bring to a boil. Lower heat and simmer for about an hour until tender. Let cool drain and add salt and bacon. Taste greens for seasoning and salt adjustments.
  2. In a 12 inch frying pan add enough oil to fill pan half way. I use safflower oil do not use olive oil. Heat oil to about 315-325 degrees. Roll your egg rolls. Fry turning constantly until golden brown about 12 min. Makes 10 egg rolls.
