Cranberry Season

Heading out to the farm in Pitt Meadows on Friday to get my ten pounds of  Cranberries. They are being picked Thursday, how fresh can you get and only two dollars a pound. 

I will make cranberry sauce and preserve more this year as we ran out this winter. Always use them whenever chicken or turkey is on the menu.
Good for you too.

Plant your Garlic

Plant your garlic now for summer 2014

Always use the largest bulbs, breaking them into cloves. 
Plant them 4 to 5 inches apart and 2 to 4 inches deep. Keep the soil moist.
Rooting will begins in a couple of weeks.

 Harvest in July or August, hang to dry in a warm spot for a couple of weeks.

In June the tops will form tiny flowers, they should be removed. They are called scrapes and can be used in many dishes.

 Russian garlic is my favorite

You too can invent your own delicious products, Thermate ® is one of ours. 
The hottest sauce we make, by Dirty Uncle Bob's Smudge. And we bill it as 'steel cutting, war starting, nuclear capability, incendiary gourmet hot sauce!' Not for the feint of heart but oh so good. Based on Auntie Jane's Red Rocket Salsa, we take it up to the next level. 

Carry permit required to take it home. Waiver must be signed to eat it. If bottle lost notify Homeland Security. No guns at the table, please.

Have fun, invent your own food stuff!

AJs Mustard

So easy to make and many variety's to choose from.

Mustard Beans/ Cauliflower/ Onions

I made some dilly beans this morning then  decided to try some mustard and cauliflower and onion beans too.
I added some hot pepper and some Russian garlic to both.
My kitchen was filled with a great smell, and certainly cleared my sinuses.

Russian Garlic

A friend put me on to Russian garlic last year, he grows it in his yard, its expensive but really worth the extra money when you buy it.

Picked up some more today at Lepp farm on the Mission /Abbotsford highway.
I am going to grow some myself this November. That is when you plant it, and if you are planting in a container use a large deep one. The flavor is far superior and stronger than the lily white  bulbs you buy in the super market.
