Another Scape Recipe

July 9th, 2010  / Author: Kyla

Still have some scapes lying around in your fridge? No worries – they last a surprisingly long time! Shannon mentioned making a scape vinaigrette in her scape post, so I thought I’d share our method (admittedly somewhat poached from Jamie Kennedy’s early spring cooking Lunch and Learn at the Gardiner Museum).

What do I do with these stirfry greens?

July 5th, 2010  / Author: shannon

Good question. Besides the obvious, the answer around here is EVERYTHING – we eat these greens for almost every meal – at least twice per day! They’re perfect with poached eggs on toast, in a big plate of potato hash, sautéed alone or with mushrooms or garlic or onions (or anything that can be sautéed really), in butter or oil, in omelettes or scrambled eggs, in stirfries or bean dishes or soup or grains or a big pile on their own with nuts or seeds or anything else you’d ever want to eat. They’re the most-used greens in my house hands down – we eat them for breakfast lunch and dinner, and even my 3 year old loves them. They’re beautiful and delicious, with the perfect combo of zip, green, and crunch. How’s that for a sale?

garlic scapes

June 22nd, 2010  / Author: shannon

The great thing about having interns (which you’ll meet soon) is that you can get them to do all the little things you can’t seem to find time for, and it all gets done without you; not that it means I’m less than a week behind, just that it means things actually get done at all…so, here are some recipes for those garlic scapes that may or may not still be in your fridge, as found by Liang The Intern! (and posted by me a week later!)

KEG 2010 CSA starts this week!

June 8th, 2010  / Author: shannon

So summer is really here right? Even if the calendar doesn’t say so, it sure feels like summer with the onset of the summer CSA. Things are in full swing here in the Kawarthas – seeds have been sown, transplants are in (thanks to the early early spring most went in way ahead of schedule), things are being weeded, mulched, fed and cared for. We’ve had a great amount of heat and sun (already more than all of last year I’ll bet!), and a couple of dry scares saved just in time by perfect nighttime rains. Who knows what the season will bring, but for sure we’ll all be eating well!

Happy CSA kickoff week. Stay tuned for recipes, news, and other exciting tidbits coming soon!
