Fall is here and we just dug the sunchokes. We dug a 1/2 bushel from 2 plants. So guess what we are having for dinner.
Jerusalem artichokes or sunchokes as they are called are starchy tubers with plenty of fiber and a low glycemic index
Here is a simple but a good recipe for them.
Wash and cut sunchokes into 1 inch pieces and toss with olive oil and your favorite herb. Bake at 400 degrees for 25-30 minutes.
Makes a great side for almost anything.
Sunchokes are healthy in a number of ways they have a low glycemic index, good for high cholesterol by lowering the bad stuff. High in vitamin B's good for high blood pressure and inflammation.
We encourage you to share your recipes with us, we all look for inspiration when we get tired of eating our own cooking. So we would like to here from you. You can e-mail at email@example.com or use our contact page. Look forward to some great recipes!
News from the farm
It's been a long time since we talked to you all. Fall is here and fall crops are replacing summer crops. We have had 2 lite frosts not enough to kill the tomatoes or peppers. Now it is back up into the 80's.
Madison Market will keep going until the week before Thanksgiving. We will skip a week then start winter deliveries on Dec. 5th.
Our fall crops are starting to come in so we will have radishes, turnip greens, bok choy, chinese cabbage, to start with then spinach, lettuce, kale, raab, collards, escarole, green onions, turnips etc.
We have gotten the fence on the snow peas, fall fields planted, the rest tilled and getting ready to put a cover crop on them.
We are putting up a 30' x 100' high tunnel so we can better control our environment. the past 2 years it has rained so much during the early spring that we have not been able to pick or things have rotted. So this should help and we should be more consistent.
