Celebrate the culture of agriculture & share skills (Growing! Cooking! Eating!)

Lots of color in the kitchen! Beet Hummus, Grilled Kohlrabi Chips, and Zucchini Pancakes

My first time having success growing banana peppers! I love 'em in sandwiches and on pizza so every year I plan to put them up as pickled peppers. Usually my plants produce a single pepper at a time, though, so I add them to Layered Summer Vegetable Appetizer (recipe here: http://www.farmfreshfeasts.com/2013/08/layered-summer-veggie-appeti... ) and dream of making pickles. Earlier this week I had enough peppers, plus a couple beets from the CSA, so I tossed them all together in a couple of refrigerator pickles. We'll see in 2 weeks if it's a hit or a bust. Update: hit.

I'm keeping things colorful on the blog this week with a pleasing pink Beet Hummus. I'm still not crazy about beets, so I am trying to find the beet recipe that I love. My recipe is here: http://www.farmfreshfeasts.com/2015/06/beet-hummus-and-improved-bee...

I've asked other bloggers to share their recipes and revamped my Visual Recipe Index by Ingredient. With over 50 recipes using beets and beet greens there's plenty to try. The index is here: http://www.farmfreshfeasts.com/p/i-dont-know-about-you-but-i-freque...

Do you like kale chips? I'm the only one in the family who does, and I wondered about using a kohlrabi leaf to make a grilled kohlrabi chip. It works! Just don't eat the "stick". Recipe here: http://www.farmfreshfeasts.com/2015/06/grilled-kohlrabi-leaf-chips-...

Breakfast, lunch or dinner I've eaten zucchini pancakes. I'm sharing my mom's recipe for this simple hors d'oeverue, side or vegetarian main dish. Recipe here: http://www.farmfreshfeasts.com/2015/06/zucchini-pancakes-for-breakf...

Where are all my pictures? I am using the spouse's iPad and my eyes have been taking pictures of prairie dogs and pronghorns. Not food. I will share photos when I get my laptop back.
