I changed up the way in which we cut our meat product recently. I’m psyched to, this week, be delivering our new 2” steaks! Omnis have yummy ribeye cut and cross cut shanks cuts.
The 2” ribeye steaks are best, in my humble farmer opinion, seared on either side on the grill or on the stove top, then slowly heated thru in the oven at 325.
The cross cut shanks are great for soup stock. The other day we simply put one in water with a cup of FT rice, carrots, onions and potatoes and simmered it for a couple hours. Served it with a scoop of south river miso mixed in at the table. Yum!
This weeks squash is a bit of a mixes bag situation. some of you will be receiving the giant blue hubbard and some of you will be receiving Kabochas.
Ok, Miso Tamari. I use South River miso tamari anywhere that I use soy sauce. As a dip with grated ginger, as a steak madinade, as a soup base or just over cold tofu.
The verb tamaru in Japanese means to collect or accumulate. Tamari translates to “that which a accumulates’. During the miso fermentation process a salty brine collects on the top of the aging vats. This ‘tamari’ is what South River Miso has started bottling in very limited quantities. It is an actively fermenting liquid (full of life in other words) and is simply syphoned into the bottles. Therefore some of you may have received bottles that are slightly bulging. Not to worry, it’s fine. Please keep refrigerated.
Mushroom hunting the other day yields a massive haul !
Was out with my brother in law the other day mushroom hunting that the weather was feeling just about right. We were shocked to come across this bounty of chicken of the woods mushrooms on an well decomposed oak trunk deep in the woods. I froze most of it for the FT feast next month !!!
This is the old 1949 Ford F3 that I would love to fix up some day :)
Ok, I have decided to start sharing my farmer fails with you all so that you can have a peak at what really goes of behind the scene down on the farm :) We had to bring in the heavy equipment to pull this one out !
Susannah made this a couple weeks back by simply battering slices eggplant in bread crumbs and some organic white flour. They were then fried in olive oil before being layered up with a simple tomato sauce and grated cheese. Way simple, exceedingly tasty.
This is how my wife rolls !
Man this cake is good :)
