Compared to slicers, picklers tend to be shorter, thicker, less regularly shaped, and have bumpy skin with tiny white or black-dotted spines. They are never waxed. Color can vary from creamy yellow to pale or dark green. Pickling cucumbers are sometimes sold fresh as “Kirby” or “Liberty.”

Roasted Brussel Sprouts Recipe

Roasted-Brussel-Sprouts

The Brussels sprout is a cultivar in the Gemmifera group of cabbages, grown for its edible buds. Brussels sprouts can provide you with some special cholesterol-lowering benefits when they’ve been steamed.

A recent study has shown improved stability of DNA inside of our white blood cells after daily consumption of Brussels sprouts. For total glucosinolate content, Brussels sprouts are now known to top the list of commonly eaten cruciferous vegetables which help prevent thyroid cancer. 

 Ingredients
1 1/2 pounds Brussels sprouts
3 tablespoons good olive oil
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Directions
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Cut off the brown ends of the Brussels sprouts and pull off any yellow outer leaves. Mix them in a bowl with the olive oil, salt and pepper. Pour them on a sheet pan and roast for 35 to 40 minutes, until crisp on the outside and tender on the inside. Shake the pan from time to time to brown the sprouts evenly. Sprinkle with more kosher salt ( I like these salty like French fries), and serve immediately.

Roasted Golden Beets

Roasted Golden Beets Just as in the Brussel Sprouts Recipe (above), Golden Beets may be roasted at the time time the same way.  Don’t forget to save the tops for salad, juicing, or sauteeing with a little garlic!

Kale and Salmon Recipe

kale and salmon

Ingredients:

1 large bunch kale
juice of 2 limes
1/4 olive oil
salt, to taste
1/4-1/2 cup toasted pine nuts
1/2 cup currants
1/2 cup finely grated Parmesan cheese

Directions:
Remove the large, central stems of the kale and roughly chop the leaves before placing in a food processor. Pulse the kale until the kale is processed into very small pieces. Then, add the lime juice, olive oil, salt, pine nuts, currants and Parmesan (adjusting amounts to suite your taste buds). Stir to combine.
Enjoy as is or with seasoned salmon!

Quinoa & Kale Recipe

quinoa kale

  • 2cups salted water
  • 1cup quinoa
  • 1bunch lacinato kale, washed and chopped into 1″ lengths
  • 1meyer lemon, zested and juiced
  • 2scallions, minced
  • 1tablespoon toasted walnut oil
  • 3tablespoons toasted pine nuts
  • 1/4cup crumbled goat cheese
  • salt and pepper
  1. Bring the water to a boil in a covered pot. Add the quinoa, cover, and lower the heat until it is just enough to maintain a simmer. Let simmer for 10 minutes, then top with the kale and re-cover. Simmer another 5 minutes, then turn off the heat and allow to steam for 5 more minutes.
  2. While the quinoa is cooking, take a large serving bowl and combine half of the lemon juice (reserving the other half), all of the lemon zest, scallions, walnut oil (you can substitute olive oil if you desire), pine nuts, and goat cheese.
  3. Check the quinoa and kale when the cooking time has completed — the water should have absorbed, and the quinoa will be tender but firm, and the kale tender and bright green. If the quinoa still has a hard white center, you can steam a bit longer (adding more water if needed). When the quinoa and kale are done, fluff the pilaf, and tip it into the waiting bowl with the remaining ingredients. As the hot quinoa hits the scallions and lemon it should smell lovely. Toss to combine, seasoning with salt and pepper, and the remaining lemon juice if needed.

Kale Sautee’ Recipe

kale salad

Ingredients:

  • 1 bunch kale or chard
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans or pistachios
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • Sea salt to taste

Start by mincing your garlic, just to make it a tiny bit healthier. Rinse your greens and place them all on a cutting board oriented in the same direction. If the leaves have very thick stems you may want to remove them as explained here. Personally I buy greens that are fresh and tender enough that I rarely bother removing stems.

Pile the greens on top of each other. Starting at the tip of the leaves, cut 1 inch strips until you have cut the entire bunch. If you are using Tuscan or red Russian kale, a lot less chopping is necessary because the leaves are thin and only need be cut in one direction. If your leaves are wide, cut them into 1-2 inch squares. It’s okay if your greens are still wet, the water will help them steam.

Using a pan with tall sides and a lid, add the nuts and turn it on medium heat. Lightly toast the nuts, stirring regularly with tongs. After 2-3 minutes, add olive oil to the pan and allow it to heat up. Add your chopped greens to the pan, sprinkle generously with sea salt and toss with tongs. Cover.

Stir the greens occasionally so they don’t burn, always replacing the lid after stirring. Continue cooking the greens as they wilt and turn dark green. If they start to burn lower the heat, add 1-2 tbsp of water and cover again to steam.

Kale is done cooking when it is dark green and the stems are tender. Unlike spinach, it is very difficult to over-cook kale because it retains its crispness very well.  Before turning off the heat, use tongs to clear a space in the center of the pan and add your minced garlic in a single layer. Allow the garlic to cook until it becomes fragrant, about 30 seconds, then mix it up with the kale and nuts. Add half cup of beans or lentils at this point if desired.

Continue to cook greens uncovered for another minute or two. Taste test a leaf for saltiness and adjust to taste (be careful if you are using chard, it is naturally salty and easy to over-season).

Organic Farming News

healthy-organi food delivery

Organic production may still represent only a small fraction of agricultural sales in the U.S. and worldwide, but it as been growing rapidly over the last two decades.

“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.”

— but it has grown more than threefold since 1999, with upwards of 37 million hectares of land worldwide now under organic cultivation. The Organic Trade Association forecasts steady growth of nine percent or more annually for organic agriculture in the foreseeable future.

But despite this growth, no one expects organic agriculture to top conventional techniques any time soon. The biggest hurdle for organics is the added cost of sustainable practices. “The cost of organic food is higher than that of conventional food because the organic price tag more closely reflects the true cost of growing the food,” reports the Organic Farming Research Foundation. “The intensive management and labor used in organic production are frequently (though not always) more expensive than the chemicals routinely used on conventional farms.”

However, there is evidence that if the indirect costs of conventional food production–such as the impact on public health of chemicals released into our air and water–were factored in, non-organic foods would cost the same or as much as organic foods.

Another challenge facing the organic sector is a shortage of organic raw materials such as grain, sugar and livestock feed. Without a steady supply of these basics, organic farmers can’t harvest enough products to make their businesses viable.
