This Week at The Cumming Harvest


This Week

Good Morning! Some of our farmers still have no power but anticipate power today, this would make it difficult to update their items online and bake. Order with this in mind. Thank you for your support and understanding.

My Daily Bread has no power and if it doesn’t come back on today they won’t be able to get some of the orders prepared. We’re going to leave their items listed in hopes that the power comes on today.

Indian Creek Angus will deliver on October 7th.

Doug’s Wild Alaskan Salmon Doug should be just about finished fishing in Alaska so we expect to receive a new delivery of Salmon around mid to late September.

This Week at The Cumming Harvest


Happy Labor Day Weekend

In case you missed it last week, here is the recipe again.

Summer Veggie Stew
This recipe was so easy and pretty healthy too. I adapted a allrecipes.com recipe called “Eggplant Supper Soup”.

Ingredients:
1 tablespoon EVOO
1 medium onion, chopped
1 pound ground beef
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 pound eggplant, diced
3/4 cup okra cut into 1/2" pieces
3/4 cup sliced celery
2 (14.5 ounce) cans Italian crushed tomatoes
28 oz chicken broth
1 teaspoon brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat, and cook the onion, beef, and garlic until beef is evenly brown. Drain grease, and mix in eggplant, celery, okra and tomatoes. Pour in broth. Mix in brown sugar, and season with nutmeg, salt, and pepper. Cook and stir until heated through.

Add in any optional starch and continue cooking on low or until done. Some have enjoyed pasta, lentils, brown rice, etc. I added a package of “Seeds of Change” brown rice and quinoa which was so easy and fast! Costco sells a box of 6.

Another option: Vermouth
We bought a huge bottle a couple of months ago because I had an idea I wanted to try a dry martini. Unfortunately, I could never make it taste good or more possibly I just don’t like dry martini’s. I believe at the time I was binge watching Mad Men and I remember thinking, they drink martini’s like apple juice, it must be really good, reminding me that nothing is like I see on TV.

Anyway, back to the reason I’m talking about Vermouth…I had heard you could cook with it so luckily when I saw that someone added vermouth into this recipe, I finally could try it. I added 1 tablespoon but probably could’ve used more as I couldn’t taste anything and if I’m going to use wine or something in a recipe I think I’d like to taste a flavor of wine ;)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Sweet Pea will be out of town for the entire month of August. Have fun in Pompeii, Mel, we’ll miss all your wonderful veggies!

Doug’s Wild Alaskan Salmon Doug should be just about finished fishing in Alaska so we expect to receive a new delivery of Salmon around mid to late September.

Ancient Awakenings will be selling nextweek.

This Week at The Cumming Harvest


This Week

This time of year the farmers are starting to make room for fall crops which means summer crops are coming to an end and being harvested. I usually issue a warning that nearly all of the favorite summer veggies are about to be in short supply. Once it gets really hot for long stretches, many plants just shut down flower production, and without flowers, there are no fruit. So, when the hot still days of August roll around there is often a sudden decline in tomatoes, beans, squash, peppers, and pretty much everything but okra. This year, though, we might be ok. It’s not been particularly hot, and there has been just enough rain to keep things from getting too dry. We’ll be pushing 100 degrees in the weeks ahead, no doubt, but we’re also likely to see scattered showers. If we stay lucky and the trend holds for a few more weeks, the bounty we have now just might be with us right into fall.

Sweet Pea will be out of town for the entire month of August. Have fun in Pompeii, Mel, we’ll miss all your wonderful veggies!

Doug’s Wild Alaskan Salmon Doug should just about be finished fishing in Alaska so we expect to receive a new delivery of Salmon around mid September.
