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 firstname.lastname@example.org or use our contact page. Look forward to some great recipes!
News from the farm
Hope you feel like there is light at the end of the tunnel when it comes to covid. To be honest our lives haven't changed much, of course our work is a home and a few less trips to town, and we can keep our distance pretty easily as we do business outside. I do feel everyones anxiousness. I know we will weather it as everything changes and we can change things for the better.
We are very thankful for what we have, if there are those you know who need food we can supply some.
The farm is fine it is taking us longer to get our high tunnel done between weather, having to fabricate hardware and fieldwork we work on it. The frame is up and 1 endwall working our way down the sides and finish the other endwall. Then it will be time for plastic. We appreciate you all.
