Guacamole From the Farm (minus the avacados of course!):
1 Medium Red Onion
3 Cloves Garlic
Juice of 1 Lime
* It all depends on how many people you're trying to feed!
Dice the avacados, tomatoes and onion; make a small dice of the jalapenos and remove your prefered amount of seeds depending on the heat you like. Put into a bowl.
"Press" or grate the garlic cloves, chop a small handful of cilantro and squeeze the juice out of the lime; add to bowl.
Mix thoroughly until it has reached the apropriate, thick consistancy. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Refrigerate for a few days- if it lasts that long!
Chocolate Mint and Honey Cocktail
We have been including chocolate mint, along with other herbs, in our last few CSA baskets and I wanted to give you all a different way to incorporate them in your kitchens. This cocktail is light and refreshing and includes our farm-made wildflower honey as the sweetner!
* recipe measurements are for a single cocktail*
1 oz of Dry Gin (your prefered brand)
2 slices of lime
5-7 sprigs of chocolate mint
1/2 tbsp of honey
splash of seltzer or tonic water
Take the lime slices, mint sprigs and honey and muddle in a "rocks" glass with a wooden spoon or muddle tool, if you have one. Make sure to get as much juice out of the limes as possible and "bruise" the mint leaves in order to release the flavor.
Once the ingredients are nicely incorporated, add in a good amount of ice cubes, the gin and top it off with the seltzer/tonic. Give it a stir so that all the goodness gets mixed throughout and take a sip!
