We Will Have Shiitake Mushrooms at Webb City Farmers Market This Saturday

Our Shiitake mushroom logs are a year old now and finally starting to produce well. It’s amazing to watch how quickly they pop out after a soaking rain! This Shiitake strain is called “Miss Happiness”. We sure are enjoying them!

Here’s just one tasty way to prepare Shiitakes. This recipe is an adaptation of one from our spawn supplier, Field and Forest Products. It uses other ingredients in season at the market like kale and green onions. You could also substitute market pecans for the almonds. Enjoy!

Wheatgrass juice contains up to 70% chlorophyll, which is an important blood builder. It helps to increase production of hemoglobin, normalize blood pressure, lower blood cholesterol and cleanse toxins from your body. Chlorophyll is known to relieve joint inflammation and because wheatgrass contains large amounts of chlorophyll, experts believe that it is effective in treating arthritis. Continue reading

What to do with that cabbage in your CSA box…

I was lucky to be able to attend a Lacto-Fermentation presentation by Dan Kuebler at the 2016 Midwest Winter Production Conference. I learned that fermentation is a natural preservation method that has been around for 2000+ years. It is preferable to canning because it produces and preserves the beneficial live cultures that enhance our intestinal flora. It also increases the nutrient content and digestibility of the vegetables. Simple ingredients, easy to make, and best of all, it tastes great!
