RUBY TUESDAY

A Day at Stone Hollow

A Day at Stone Hollow

It is always so much fun to add something to the weekly CSA basket that is a little unusual or surprising. In the past, that might have been that chartreuse Romanesco or some Caraflex cabbage (the one that looks like a conehead). This week’s treasure comes from Belle Meadow Farms, a bundle of Shunkyo radishes.  These ruby beauties look similar to the baby carrots we’ve offered in weeks past but taste just like traditional radishes. Honestly, they are almost too pretty to slice up! Perhaps try roasting them this week.  We’re partial to this recipe.

This week’s basket has other lovelies from Belle Meadow Farm – lettuce, seedless cucumbers, red potatoes, purple beets, Savoy cabbage and curly kale. Hamm Farms provided the tasty Romanesco we love.

As the days get warmer, tomatoes just get more and more delicious and these from Greenleaf Nursery are a prime example. From our own Stone Hollow Farm, we have more of those fun garlic scapes – have any of you tried your hand at pickling them yet? It couldn’t be easier or more rewarding. You could also opt to flavor your favorite white wine vinegar with them.  Fill a clear bottle with the a few scapes and slowly pour in the warmed vinegar of your choice. Cover and refrigerate for a few days so that the flavors can meld.

Oh! How could we overlook our other favorite pretty surprise this week: nasturtium butter! The nasturtiums grown on our Harpersville property are raised organically and feature that traditional peppery bite. Adding these to our sweet cream butter provides the perfect culinary foil. Yes, you can bake and cook with this butter but we think it might be far too pretty. It kind of deserves to be in a little dish all on its own. Or slathered on a hefty piece of warm crusty bread. Or used to add an elegant finish to that roasted SHF broccoli.

And last but not least -- be sure to clear off a spot on your kitchen counter or the powder room for a bouquet of Stone Hollow Farmstead happy snapdragons. You made it through the holiday weekend and now it is time to enjoy summer!

PS. We bought up a bunch of the peas because they are a favorite. We froze them so we would have plenty when they are not available. ... Peas need to be frozen or cut open if refrigerated, otherwise they will ferment in a sealed bag.
