2 recipe ideas with healthy Greek Yogurt [Stonyfield recommended], peaches and  strawberries.

SUMMER

clingstone

Peaches are coming in!

Last week’s farm boxes varied daily with 8-12 peaches, 60+ lbs of peaches.
Early harvest Clingstone peaches are juicier and sweeter,
but cling to the pit are smaller and harder.

It is best to cut them up and use in baking recipes calling for diced or pureed peaches.

Try them in tomato-corn-peach-bell pepper salsa, peach smoothies, cut up with Greek Yogurt, peach butter, and savory sauces, such as glaze for salmon.

The flesh is yellow, with bright red touches closest to the stone.  This is the preferred variety for jellies, jams, and canning. Although clingstones are tasty eaten fresh, they are seldom eaten out of hand due to the pit stone clinging to the flesh. The commercial industry uses clingstones for peaches canned in syrup.

Benefits Pickles.

4 Benefits of Homemade Refrigerator Pickles

By opting for refrigerated pickles with organic apple cider vinegar, you’ll get all the healthy benefits. One or two homemade refrigerator pickles daily may help provide probiotic benefits while keeping sodium intake moderate.

  • Pickles are probiotic when fermented. 
  • Pickles are good for your eyes.
  • Pickles help keep bones strong.
  • Pickles help with muscle cramps.—while pickles are good at assisting athletes whose electrolytes have been depleted, because they’re fermented with salt, pickles do have quite a bit of sodium, averaging 313 milligrams per serving. (The American Heart Association recommends capping it at 1,500 milligrams a day.)

Quick Pickled.

Quick Pickled Vegetables – No Canning Required

Quigk-pickled-veggies-100-4

Ingredients

  • Enough Fresh Raw Veggies to fill 2 Quart size mason Jars (about 5-6 cups)- beets, carrots, radishes, turnips, cucumbers, okra, green beans, asparagus, red onion, zucchini or summer squash, cauliflower florets, bell peppers, garlic scapes, cabbage, rainbow chard stems

Pickling Spices

  • 1 tablespoons coriander seeds
  • 2 teaspoons fennel seeds
  • 1 teaspoons mustard seeds
  • 6– 10 cloves garlic- sliced thickly
  • ½ an onion sliced (optional)
  • few sprigs fresh dill ( optional) or other herbs
  • Other optional additions- whole cloves, dill seeds, whole allspice, fresh ginger slices, fresh chilies or chili flakes, celery seeds, peppercorns or other fresh herbs.

Pickling Liquid

  • 2 Cups vinegar- apple cider (or white, red wine, rice wine )
  • 2 Cups water
  • 2 Tablespoons kosher salt
  • 4–6 Tablespoons sugar ( sugar is added for flavor, so feel free to cut back)

Instructions

  1. Prep your veggies. Wash them well and slice, quarter, or cut into spears, or leave whole ( like with green beans, asparagus, okra etc)
  2. Bring the water, vinegar, salt and sugar to a boil in a small pot, and in the mean time pack the jars with the prepped veggies.
  3. In two quart size mason jars, divide the garlic and whole spices.
  4. Begin adding the veggies and if your are including the onion ( which I recommend), layer a few slices in with the veggies along with any fresh herbs you would like to include ( you can also layer the garlic this way too, or put it in first, your choice) leaving about an inch at the top of the jar.
  5. Using a funnel, carefully pour the hot liquid into the jars, making sure to submerge all the veggies, pressing down on them with the end of a wooden spoon. You may be able to add more veggies at this point, just make sure the liquid completely covers the veggies leaving at least a half inch of room between the liquid and lid.
  6. Cover and let sit on the counter to cool, and after an hour or two, place in the fridge. These will taste good after 6-8 hours, but much better after a couple days. Keeps up to three weeks.

Canning Notes

If you are planning to can your pickles for long-term storage, bring a large pot of water to a boil and sterilize 2 wide-mouth pint jars and their metal lids.

Place the pickling liquid in saucepan over high heat and bring to a rolling boil. Pour the brine over the veggies filling each jar to within 1/2-inch of the top. Remove any air bubbles. Gently tap the jars against the counter a few times to remove all the air bubbles. Top off with more pickling liquid if necessary. Tighten the lids. Place the lids over the jars and screw on the rings until tight.  For longer storage, place the filled jars in a boiling pot of water to can them. When the water comes back to a boil, boil for 5 minutes then remove the jars immediately. Make sure the lids pop down.

Variations: Herb-laced Cucumbers: Interlace cucumbers and garlic with about ¾ cups chopped dill, thyme or lemon balm while filling the containers. Spiced Cucumbers: This is just a hint of the spices that like pickles: coriander, cumin, cardamom, and dill seeds.

berry

Ingredients

  • 1 (8 oz) pkg reduced fat cream cheese or Greek Yogurt
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar or coconut sugar or honey
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice*
  • zest from one lime
  • 1 pound strawberries

Instructions

  1. In a mixing bowl combine the cream cheese, powdered sugar, lime juice and lime zest. Place the mixture in the fridge to chill.
  2. Carefully cut the tips and the stems from the strawberries. Use a small spoon or metal measuring spoon and hollow out the inside of the berries. Be careful not to cut into the edges.
  3. Spoon or pipe the filling into the berries.
  4. Keep cool.
  5. Tips: I used a metal teaspoon to hollow out the large berries and a metal 1/2 teaspoon to hollow out the small berries.
  6. You can place the prepared berries in the freezer for a few minutes to help the filling set so if they tip over it doesn’t ruin the appearance.

*You can add an additional 2 teaspoons of lime juice without it altering the filling if you prefer more lime flavor.
