Don't waste the lovely green tops of fresh leeks they make great chips with a pungent salty sweetness.

Parmesean Brussell Sprouts

I've never met a vegetable with as bad a wrap as the good old brussell sprout. I'm pleased to say that we have mended the relationship between many a man, woman and brussell sprout with our continued devotion to growing this wonderous winter treat. We sell our sprouts on the stalk so you can pick them off as you want them and we leave the lovely top knot on as a bonus of lovely greens.

Fastest Arugula Salad

This salad takes less than 3 minutes to prepare and will transform those who are wishy-washy about arugula into fans of this peppery green. It is the fastest and most delicious salad I know. The coolness of the feta and tomatoes balance the arugula.

Farmer Dave's Artichokes

We grow 1000 artichoke plants every year and harvest them in May/June and again in late summer and fall. We pick the artichokes when they are young so they aren't feathery inside. The key to this recipe is using fresh young artichokes with tight heads. Once the artichokes get too large the feathers start to grow inside and you can’t pop the whole artichoke in your mouth. You can simply trim a young artichoke, cut the hearts in half and enjoy.

Dried Apples

Drying apples is something you are very thankful for in the middle of winter. Make sure you stash them up high in a cupboard where your family will forget about them or they will all be consumed before apple season is over.

Kaiser Buns

The buns are easy to prep and make any lunch a gourmet feast. We slice these buns up hot and make great sandwiches.

Marinated Dried Tomatoes

We have just begun to experiment with a wonderful dehydrator my mother gave to my sister, who passed it along to us. One of the great tidbits we squirreled away this winter were these tomatoes.
