Choco Chirpies: Chocolate Chip Cricket Cookie

Choco Chirpies: Chocolate Chip Cricket Cookie

Tomorrow’s Harvest has not yet begun selling crickets commercially, but Stephen Swanson led a City Market workshop last fall to introduce curious participants to the idea of incorporating insects in their diet. He demonstrated how to make a “gateway” cricket dish: cookies, with cricket flour standing in for some of its wheat-based cousin. Recipe from bugvivant.com.

Beer-braised Potatoes with Cheddar and Horseradish

potatoes

Over the course of a year I have many favorite days, but one of them is when we dig the potatoes in the fall. We mow the tops in late August, signaling to the plants that the time for growth is over. This recipe is adapted from a recipe by Mark Bittman in How to Cook Everything (Wiley, 2008)

Ginger Sesame Salad Dressing

Salad Dressing

This delicious salad dressing adds an Asian flare to salads. Serve it with mixed greens or perhaps on a chicken or noodles.

Tahini Garlic Salad Dressing

Salad Dressing

This salad dressing gets a hint of creaminess from the addition of tahini. Garlic and lemon combine to give it a Middle Eastern flavor. It's wonderful served with kale or mixed greens.

Cold Quell Soup

Cold Quell Soup

Serve this bold yet simple soup at the first suggestion of a cold or flu as a bit of preventative medicine: The oil from the mustard greens warms the nasal passages, helps disperse congestion, and increases energy flow throughout the body; the greens help move stuck energy; and the yam and ginger support qi and blood circulation. The yam’s sweet flavor also acts as a counterpoint to the piquant greens and ginger.

Bone Stock

Bone Broth

We make a week’s supply of stock and freeze any that we’re not going to use within five days. We use it liberally in our soups, stews, and any savory dish that calls for liquid. Or, for a quick energy boost, we season it to taste and drink it as an on-the-spot restorative. I often toss in a square of the mineral-rich kombu seaweed, which adds even more nutrients and enhances the stock’s savory (umami) flavor.

Alpaca “Steak Frites”

Alpaca “Steak Frites”

 From the Cas-Cad-Nac Farm Cookbook. Our family’s favorite recipe to come out of this project is Chef Matecat’s version of steak frites, which uses our alpaca striploin medallions. Lately, we’ve served them with the addition of a garlicky chimichurri sauce on the side.

Whole Roasted Chicken with Roasted Garlic and White Wine Jus

Garlic

The most important role of garlic, of course, is as an ingredient. Where to use garlic is like asking where one should use butter: everywhere.

Campfire Ratatouille with Farmers’ Market Veggies

Campfire corn on the cob

In every recipe, there are ingredients included that prevent the food from sticking to the foil. This can be butter, as in the recipe for roasted potatoes, or the juices from vegetables, as in the garlic and tomato chicken or campfire ratatouille. Substitutions can be made in these recipes, but be sure to include something (butter, oil, or juicy vegetables) to prevent your food from sticking to the foil packets.
