Today is National Wear Red day promoting heart health for women.
A good way to promote good heart health is to join a CSA.
Lock Farm CSA applications are now available on our website: www.lockfarm.net.
It is a cold and rainy Saturday here at the Lock Farm. Not a good day to do outside chores. So… this morning I took one of our huge sweet potatoes and made: a sweet potato pie, sweet potato bread and sweet potato fritters.
The fritters are delicious. Here is the easy (and tasty) recipe.
Sweet Potato Fritters
2 cups mashed sweet potatoes
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon sugar
1 cup of milk
2 egg yolks
1/2 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 egg whites well beaten
oil for frying
Combine liquid ingredients. Beat until smooth.
Combine dry ingredients. Add to mixture.
Fold in the beaten egg whites.
Drop by teaspoon-full into oil at 365º.
Flip when browned on bottom until both sides are brown.
Remove from oil and drain on a paper towel.
Sprinkle with powdered sugar.
Gobble them while they are still warm. YUM!
This vegetable is good fixed in many ways: raw, in salads, cooked, steamed, braised or fried.
Over cooking gives cabbage a strong flavor and odor.
Cooking celery with cabbage will help cut to strong cooking odor.
CABBAGE AND NOODLES Ingredients
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup butter
4 cups shredded cabbage
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
8 oz noodles, cooked and drained
1/2 cup sour cream
Sauté onion in butter.
Add cabbage; sauté until tender crisp (about 5 minutes)
Sprinkle with slat and pepper.
Stir hot noodles into cabbage.
Add sour cream.
