This Week’s Harvest:
- Salad Mix
- Head Lettuce
- Spring Onions
Strawberries. These were the sweetest yet. I bought more at the farmer's market, so there is plenty to make a large batch of gelato. Noboby seems to tire of strawberry gelato. This week it will be pure and simple. No balsamic reduction. No rosemary. Just strawberries, milk, and sugar (and a little lemon zest).
Salad Mix. Head Lettuce. Look for these in tomorrow's chicken salad sandwiches.
Spring Onions. The green parts will go into our chicken salad this week. We keep our salad traditional: Chicken, green onions, celery, mayonnaise, salt and pepper.
Dill. We are going to make a middle-eastern inspired stuffed cheese pastry (burek) with the dill, some fresh parsley from my garden, and feta from AA Farm Creamery. We'll use puff pastry instead of phyllo dough. The filling (before we multiply it out for a crowd) is:
6 oz. feta cheese, crumbled
4 oz. cream cheese
1 egg, beaten
2 tbsp. chopped fresh parsley
1 tbsp. chopped fresh dill
The final pastry is baked, and resembles something between a turnover and a hand-held pie.
Kale. Some of this will go on next week's pizzas, along with the bulbs from the spring onions. We're also going to follow Margaret Ann's suggestion and bake some kale chips to snack on at the bakery.
If you just happen to stop by the bakery when we have fresh kale chips out of the oven, I promise to share...
