Caring For Your Organic Basil Plant

organic basil plants

Your Organic Basil Plant was grown using organic seeds and organic fertilizers. No Poison & No GMO!

Basil is originally from India, basil is used in all cuisines all over the world to flavor sauces, oils and the best Italian tomato sauces. Basil has a sweet aromatic flavor that makes your salads great!

Basil is a true annual, which means that once the plant flowers, it will eventually die. But, during that long life, you can pick the leaves fresh – right from your kitchen window sill. Keep pinching off the flower pods before they bloom to extend the life of the plant. Usually these flower pods are found at the tip of the plant.

Basil loves sunlight and needs an abundance of indirect sun Basilor natural light each day. Basil prefers warm temperatures and a humid environment to keep the leaves from drying. With little to no effort, you can enjoy the scent of fresh aromatic basil in your home and add a fresh & flavorful herb to your kitchen cupboard.

Set your new basil plant in a sunny window so the plant is exposed to as much natural sunlight as possible.  But make sure it is not baking in the direct sunlight.

A Few Growing Tips:

  • Try and pinch the newer leaves back every few days to encourage new growth. By doing so you will promote branching and make the basil plant a bushier growth.
  • Place the plant with its’ root ball into a nice clay pot, or other decorative planter. Be sure to use a planter with proper drainage. Set the planter on a tray full of pebbles, and add water to the tray. This creates a level of humidity around the basil plant. Misting the plant daily to increase the moisture helps, but is not necessary.
  • Periodically check for whiteflies or any tiny insects. Spray the plant with water  to wash them off.  DO NOT SPRAY WITH PESTICIDES!
  • Your plant come already fertilized and therefore, there is no need to add fertilizers.  You may, however, judiciously add some if needed.  Fertilizer promotes foliage growth and slows the flowering stage of the plant.

Contact us with any questions you may have.  Once you have completed the life cycle of your existing basil plant, we will gladly get you a new plant!

Butternut Squash Tempura

butternut squash and vegetable tempura

Butternut Squash taken to an Asian place!

1 large butternut squash

Organic coconut oil, canola or grapeseed oil, for deep frying 1 cup rice flour 1 cup cold club soda or Perrier 1/4 cup soy sauce 1/4 cup lime juice 2 tablespoons minced ginger 1 teaspoon sesame oil

1. Preheat the oven to 350F.

2. First, cut the butternut squash in two at the intersection of the cylindrical neck and the round base. If the skin is too thick to peel with a vegetable peeler, try standing the neck with the flat cut-end down and slicing downward around the squash with a paring knife. (If the neck is really long, cut into two shorter pieces before doing this.) Peel the skin from the round base and then split it in two lengthwise. Using a spoon, scrape to remove the seeds and fibrous flesh. Cut the squash into 3-inch pieces. Put the pieces on a broiler pan, season them lightly with salt and pepper, and bake until barely tender, 20-30 minutes.3. Fill a heavy, straight-sided sauté pan no more than halfway to the top with canola or grapeseed oil for deep frying. (Be sure not to fill the pan higher than halfway up the sides: the oil will expand when you fry, and could spill over and ignite.)4. When the squash has cooled, cut the pieces into long rectangles.5. Whisk together the rice flour and club soda. Add more flour or soda so that the batter is thick (like pancake batter).6. Turn the heat on medium-high to warm the frying oil. When the oil reaches 360-375F, dip the squash pieces into the batter and let the excess drain off; the batter should cling to the squash but not be too clumpy.  7. Carefully set the squash pieces into the oil, letting them fall away from you so you don’t splash oil onto your fingers. (You can also do this with tongs or a slotted spoon.) Work in batches of 6-8 pieces of squash at a time so the oil temperature is constant. Fry, turning the squash gently, until they’re golden brown in spots, 3-5 minutes. 8. Remove the squash pieces with a slotted spoon and drain them on a paper towel- or newspaper-lined plate. Season immediately with salt and pepper. 9. Whisk together the soy sauce, lime juice, ginger and sesame oil. Serve alongside the squash.

Warm Golden Beet Salad

golden beet salad

Beet Salad can be made with red or rainbow beets too!

1 bunch beets, both tops and roots Olive oil Salt and freshly ground black pepper 4 cloves garlic, minced 4 ounces goat cheese, crumbled 2/3 cup toasted almond slivers

Heat the oven to 425°F. Line a 9-inch square baking pan or cake tin with a big square of foil, large enough to complete enclose the beet roots. Lightly rinse the beet roots to remove any really clumpy dirt and pat them dry. Place them in the foil square and lightly drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle generously with salt and pepper. Fold up the foil and crease to seal. Bake the beets for 60 minutes or until they can be just pierced with a fork. Set aside to cool.

Meanwhile, chop the beet greens into bite-size ribbons. Discard the stalks between the roots and where the leaves start, but chop the leaf ribs along with the leaves. Rinse thoroughly to remove all traces of dirt and grit. In a large skillet, heat a drizzle of olive oil over medium heat and add the garlic. Cook on low for about 5 minutes or until the garlic is golden and fragrant. Add the chopped leaves and stir to coat with the garlic. Cook on medium-low for about 10 minutes or until the leaves are soft and tender. Remove from the heat.

When the beets are cool, rub them with a paper towel to remove the skin. Then chop into bitesized pieces and toss with the cooked greens, goat cheese, and almonds. Taste and season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve warm or cold. (This also makes an excellent pressed sandwich filling, especially with some extra goat cheese.)

Roasted Lemon Herb Chicken Quarters

chicken quarters

Our signature meat dish comes out perfect every time!

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 chicken quarters
  • zest and juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 large clove of garlic, minced
  • 1/4 C (at least) fresh herbs, such as parsley, thyme, rosemary and/or sage, minced
  • Opt: 1 tsp dried herbes de Provence
  • 3/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper (approx. 5 turns of the peppermill)
  • 1 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil

METHOD:

  1. Trim any excess fat off of the chicken and discard. Place the quarters in a large ziplock bag; add 1 tsp salt and enough water to submerge the meat. Let soak in this brining solution for 30 minutes. This is to ensure your chicken will be super juicy and tender!
  2. Prepare the marinade: in a bowl, combine lemon zest and juice, garlic, herbs, salt, pepper and oil.
  3. Drain the chicken and pat dry with paper towels. Place into a foil-lined baking dish.
  4. Pour the marinade over the chicken, and thoroughly rub the mixture into the flesh and under the skin.
  5. Cover with plastic wrap and let marinate for 2 hours in the fridge. Before roasting, allow the chicken to reach room temperature, 10 minutes or so. Preheat your oven to 400°F.
  6. Roast uncovered for 45 – 55 minutes, until internal temperature reaches 180°F, skin is golden and crispy and the juices run clear. I like to finish mine off in the broiler for 2 minutes under high heat to get the perfect crust on top, which is totally optional. If you choose to do this final step, I recommend spooning or basting the chicken with the pan juices.

Learn All About Kale

All kale varieties Organic food delivery store

There Are 6 Varieties of Kale:

1. Winter Red Kale 2. Red Chidori Kale 3. Lacinato (Dinosaur, Black or Tuscan Kale) 4. Redbor Kale 5. Siberian Kale (Russian) 6. Fizz Kale Kale is a cruciferous vegetable in the cabbage family and freezes well. Actually, Kale tastes sweeter and more flavorful after being exposed to a frost. Baby kale has a robust flavor and works well raw in salads. Some like to massage kale with oils, lemon or both to soften the leaves before eating raw in a salad . Baked kale, however,  makes a great snack. Kale chips, when baked or dehydrated takes on a consitency similar to Nori, or seaweed, and is similar to that of a crispy chip. We prefer the green curly kale for making chips. The chips can be seasoned with salt or other spices too.  Here’s a recipe that we love: Try rubbing the green kale with cashew butter, lemon and salt before baking or dehydrating for a tasty treat!

6 kinds of organic kale

“According to the latest global census of farming practices, the area of land certified as organic makes up less than one percent of global agricultural land.”

…And kale makes up less than one percent of that!  That means there is very little organic kale available to consumers. You may have tried one type of Kale, and you weren’t too jazzed about it, but have you tried the others? Each creates a slightly different nutritional profile in the cancer-fighting, cholesterol-lowering, fiber-providing, anti-oxidant-boosting properties which make kale special. Each type of kale has a unique flavor and health benefits all spectacular. 1. Green Curly Kale This is what type you’ve probably seen many. You can find them in nearly any grocer’s and at your regional farmer’s market. It has a energetic pungent flavor. Green kale is the most common kale for juicers.  The favorite recipe is to make kale chips with green kale.  Kale lovers like it stir fried. 2. Lacinato Kale Also referred to as Dinosaur Kale, this variety could be the second most common, distinguishable simply by its dark, long, filter leaves. It is termed slightly sweeter and additional delicate than curly kale. A conventional ingredient of minestrone, lacinato kale’s long story with Italian cuisine has also birthed the aliases Tuscan Cabbage and Italian Kale 3. Decorative Kale Only recently did we start to credit Ornamental Kale for much more than her good looks. Together with either vibrant white, lavender, reddish, blue, or violet indoors leaves, this group of kale was used mainly to provide a decorative garden plant. Its mellow flavor and tender texture is ideal for coleslaws or salad mixes. 4. Russian Kale The softest of all the kales by far.  This is the best kale to eat raw without massaging and goes well in salads.  It has a flowery bouquet that imparts a unique flavor. We grow both Red and White varieties. 5. Fizz Kale A more common kale for juicers and salads.  The favorite kale for ornamental gourmet dishes and paired with edible flowers.  Kale lovers like it raw or stir fried. 6. Red Kale Red kale is the most appealing to the eye due to the beautiful varigated leaf and dark red hues.  Red kale is perfect for soups and stews as well as for most cooking dishes. Kale is very high in beta carotenevitamin Kvitamin C, and rich in calcium. Kale is a source of two carotenoidslutein and zeaxanthin. Kales contains sulforaphane (particularly when chopped or minced), a chemical with potent anti-cancer properties. Kale is also a source of indole-3-carbinol, a chemical which boosts DNA repair in cells and appears to block the growth of cancer cells. Kale has been found to contain a group of resins known as bile acid sequestrants, which have been shown to lower cholesterol and decrease absorption of dietary fat.

Learn About Florida Avocado

fl avocado-chart

In 1750, the avocado was introduced to Indonesia, in 1833 Florida, in 1908 Israel. It reached Australia in the late 1800s.

Florida’s avocado industry is focused on varieties like Choquette, Hall and Lulu — large, smooth-skinned fruits with juicy, sweet flesh popular among the salad eaters of the south Florida areas.  Florida avocado lovers dislike the California-grown varieties like Haas. They are more oily than juicy and Haas varieties are very small relative to the Florida grown cousins.

Learn About Florida Avocados

There are many diverse ranges for growing avocados in the USA.  Florida is the best growing reagion for the varieties listed below.  To find out more about avocado growing ranges, refer to the avocado growing map here.

 Commercially grown avocados are easy to find in stores, supermarkets and grocers.  But, some of the Florida grown varieties are select and harder to find.

Here is a chart showng the different growing regions for avocados in California and Florida.

Most Common Varieties of Florida Avocados

avocados

Shepard. This small avocado, an important commercial variety in Australia, has delicate smooth skin and a pointed, acorn-shaped pit embedded in rich, sticky flesh. A relative of the Hass, it has its obvious similarities in texture, but with a thicker — almost gluey — consistency. It was a top contender in our lineup. Season*: August through October.

Choquette. A popular Florida variety, the Choquette avocado may easily weigh two pounds (the average Hass is perhaps 6 ounces). But, more so than in many other varieties, the Choquette’s weight is largely comprised of water. That is, cut this fruit with a knife and it bleeds lime-green juice. One of our panel described its taste as “avocado rainwater.” The flesh is silken and the flavor extremely mild. Season: October through December.

Tonnage. A classic avocado on the outside, with a pear-shaped figure and frog-green pebbly skin and a slender neck leading to the stem, the Tonnage stands out when tasted — for it is remarkably sweet. While its oil content is on the low side — just 8- to 10-percent fat — it is nonetheless buttery, with a faint and savory taste of chestnut. Season: September.Avocado-smoothies

Daily 11. A huge avocado and a relative of the fatty Hass, the Daly 11  may weigh five pounds or more and bears a thick, armor-like hide with dense, flavorful, oily flesh inside. Season: August through October.

Macarthur. This voluptuously shaped variety, with a bulbous bottom that curves deeply into the stem, has thick and creamy meat, with a nutty flavor, and is decadently smooth and buttery when fully ripe. Delicious. Season: August through November.

Hall. A relative of the Choquette and similar in shape and size, the Hall avocado has nuttier, drier and thicker flesh, though still juicy and fruity. Season: October through November.

Mexicola Grande: Small but beautiful, the Mexicola Grande has glistening black skin, almost as thin as paper. The light-flavored flesh is slightly fibrous, sweet and juicy. Season: August through October.

Anaheim. This large and softball-shaped avocado may grow to two pounds and has buttery, creamy, soft flesh and a mild, nutty flavor. Season: June through September.

Hass. High-fat flesh, a nutty taste, and almond butter texture make the Hass both the classic West Coast avocado and a favorite worldwide. Its oil content can be 20 percent or higher, and its skin is tough and durable.  Season: Year-round.
