All the potatoes are out!! Hooray! That was an ordeal. And what a lot of them there are. Good and plenty for the home stretch of the market season. I have revitalized my potato romance with potato casserole (?), sort of like scalloped potatoes. Slice 'em, layer 'em with thick slices of onion and minced garlic, cheese if you've got it, any green you like (last time I used mustard greens), and spices (salt and pepper at the very least). Pour some water in, cover, and bake at 400 for about an hour or two, until the potatoes are cooked through. Sometimes in the end, I put cheese on top. Alright, who am I kidding, anytime I have cheese, I add it. Another quick recipe that makes you feel like someone else made dinner for you. I love that.
I also discovered a fantastic dressing: Honey, apple cider vinegar, minced garlic, and minced ginger. Let it sit or eat it straight away. It is DELICIOUS.
Little bit of bummer news, the kale needs a week to recuperate. Although no kale this week, we still have greens. May I suggest collard greens or Swiss chard for your saute needs and bok choi for your raw greens needs, that is, if you want something firmer than tatsoi, the OG (original green).
Other on the edge news, the deer tortured the carrots. While it seems I have the situation under control now, possibly by my own doing (I can't tell), they are recovering too slowly. They really rely those tops to grow the bottoms. The good news? Even though they are small with funny greens, they are still delicious!!! So I harvested them anyway. Why make everyone else wait to enjoy what the deer already are?
Come out and see me at market! I have lots of great food for you!
