Eat your Greens! Here's a few recipes to get the autumn greens on your plate. You may not have noticed the collard greens at the market last week - we'll have them again. They've gotten a bad rap over the years but here's some new recipes to make you want to give them a second try. There's also beautiful kale right now, add this salad to your feasting this week:
Marinated Kale Salad 1 bunch of kale, washed, stems removed and cut into very thin strips (1/4 “) ½ c. red pepper, diced’1/2 c. dried cranberries ½ cucumber, sliced thin ½ c. raw, whole almonds, chopped ¼ c. raw sunflower seeds ½ small red onion ½ c. red cabbage, chopped into very small pieces Dressing: 1 T. apple cider vinegar 1 T. maple syrup 2 T. flax oil (or veg. oil) 2 T. olive oil 1 T. Balsamic vinegar 1 t. Dijon mustard 1 t. soy sauce ½ t. coriander salt and pepper to taste Combine dressing ingredients in a jar and shake. Massage dressing into the kale to soften the leaves then add the other ingredients and mix well. Let sit for at least one hour before serving to let flavors meld and kale soften. This salad will keep for a couple of days.
Organic Apples at market October 3rd and 10th
Once again we will be getting organic apples from Cawston BC on October 3rd.
Ambrosia: These apples are sweet and juicy, red blush skin, creamy flesh, decent keepers, not so long as winter frosted keepers or the aurora but if you like the sweetness and crispiness of an aromatic apple that is excellent for eating, pies (holds its shape well), juicing or dehydrating this is the one! Order 19lbs for $60 or 10 lbs for $35 Aurora: This apple is sweet, juicy, yellow skinned, remaining crisp and wonderful right through to late spring if stored properly. My favourite apple. I wasn't pre-disposed to liking yellow apples, but this one totally won me over and I can't imagine a more perfect apple!! Good for everything, especially fresh eating and juicing. Order 19lbs for $60 or 10 lbs for $35
