Re: Winter harvest on the farm


Have you all tried putting hard boiled eggs, shells removed...into your jars of beet juice when the beets are all gone? My mom does this and they come out delicious...

Re: Winter harvest on the farm


I've not done that in a while, but yes! Mom has always done that, and I love them! They are SO good that way. I love pickled eggs anyway...but man...if you're prone to gas, they can sure cause some problems! LOL

Re: Winter harvest on the farm


I love pickled eggs and I've done them both with their own brine and then putting them in pickled beet juice. Hubby thinks I'm insane for eating them but boy are they yummy!

Lots of greens from the farm this week.

Kale, collards, Asian cabbage (the leaf in the lower left), spinach, cilantro and arugula. Just a little broccoli but a nice batch of White Lady Turnips.

I'm going to have to come up with some new ways to cook greens I think! We are getting a bit weary of them after the whole winter. Looking forward to spring veggies, but it will be some time still!

It's just about 4 more weeks until official spring...I'll start a new harvest thread for that season!

TM have you looked on the internet for possible "Oriental" ways to use your greens? They have very different dishes and use many vegetables, usually those "in" season.

Re: Winter harvest on the farm


That's a great idea! I recently used some of the greens for an Indian dish. I also have a cookbook called something like "Eating Chinese in Season" and if I recall, there were lots of greens recipes. I'm looking forward to flipping through cookbooks tonight!

My DH also liked pickled eggs, so when we both eat them...look out!! emoticon emoticon


Texas, every time you post these, it makes my mouth water for a good garden fresh salad! LOL. I'll be so glad when we're able to do garden salads again, with grilled chicken......good stuff. The Oriental stuff sounds really good, too! Will be interesting to see what you come up with. Have fun!!!

Re: Winter harvest on the farm


I'm trying to change my eating habits to be more in line with the Perfect Health Diet I posted about in the library forum.

And so I've done lightly stir-fried veggies for dinner a couple of days. Just what I have lying around, a bit of white cabbage, a few leaves of Savoy cabbage, a carrot, an onion, a bit of garlic yesterday. Sometimes I add broccoli, or zucchini. I try to stay somewhat with the seasons, hence the cabbage, which are winter veggies here.

It's easier to do it than I expected, so I think I could get used to it! Much better than eating slices of bread with cream cheese for dinner (although I miss that).
