Here we have preserves which all farmers do to carry through the winter. The only fresh things were potatoes that stored properly last quite some time. Do not store your onions with your potatoes they tend to set each other off and kill one another. So here is Farmer Jane`s list of offerings. I did not think you need to see the meat so no photos.
doz organic eggs – large and divine
• 2 pork chops, thick cut, organic berkshire pork
• basil pesto, not certified organic, but no spray farm (mine)
• pickled jalepenos, ditto above
• 12 x 1 litre jars tomato sauce – double ditto
• free range heritage chicken, real free range – as in – in the garden, on the lawn
• tomato butter, regular fabulous and hot fabulous
• 2-3 potato varieties, best mashed with piles of butter and a bit of cream.
• the bacon. smoked. organic berkshire pedigree. killer.
arribbiata pasta sauce – or just call it ooh lala, best shared with an appreciative friend.
you will need a large fry pan
THE bacon, defrost and cut into 1/4” x 1/2” isn cubes
1 medium onion, finely chopped
1 litre jar of tomato sauce
a cup or two of white wine – whatever is hanging around
1-2 dried hot peppers
place bacon cubes in large fry pan on stove top, cook the bacon on a medium heat until crisp.
watch closely as it will burn quickly, a fine line here
remove bacon from pan and set aside, keep the grease
add the onion, simmer until softened in the bacon grease
add back the bacon, tomato sauce, white wine, peppers to taste and simmer until thick
we like it on a penne or fusilli pasta.
i love my hair.
