CSA Reminder: First Pickup Wednesday, June 10

June 8, 2015


"All human actions have one or more of these seven causes: chance, nature, compulsions, habit, reason, passion, desire." ~ Aristotle
News from the Farm:  Welcome to Our Seventh (Heaven) Season Hi Everyone,
It's hard to believe that we are beginning our
seventh season!  Wow, seven....s
cholars say it denotes completeness or perfection.  We're aiming for both!  
I was in the attic looking through all the CSA boxes for a receipt for a piece of equipment we bought some years back and it really hit me, seven years!  (I have saved every hand-written envelope addressed to Hesperides Organica!)  Some day my kids will have to sort out all my belongings and I hope they will be charmed by these boxes of inked envelopes.  Or, they'll just throw them into a big heap and burn them shaking their heads at their eccentric mother. 



Oh, well.  One thing they won't be able to complain about is having enough vegetables to eat!

My favorite way to eat cilantro recipe:

1 cup cashew nuts (or any nut)
1 bunch of cilantro (stems included)
4 garlic cloves
1/4 cup oil
2 T. soy (or Tamari) sauce
2 t. brown sugar
1 T. lime juice
1 jalapeno pepper (seeded -- I usually don't add)
2 T. water

Blend all in a food processor.  Add water to desired consistency.  I like it thick.  Eat with a spoon!  Or enjoy over chicken, beef, pork or pasta.  Freezes very well!
