In this weeks share:
Onions, leeks, garlic, rutabaga, turnips, radishes, tomatoes, peppers (sweet and hot), kale, arugula, cabbage, pie pumpkin
This past Sunday folks gathered for the second annual Sharemembers Harvest Festival at Wealth Underground Farm. We pressed apples for cider, bobbed for apples, played with goats, and conversed in the midst of a beautiful fall day in Portland.
Also, Shine a Light, an art event hosted by the Portland Art Museum and curated by the Art and Social Practice program at PSU, happened this last Friday. Wealth Underground farmer Nolan Calisch had a few projects running at the event. You can read more about Shine a Light and Nolan's projects on the Oregonian website.
Buttered Rutabaga and Kale
1 rutabaga, cut in cubes
a bunch of kale sliced in thin strips
one onion chopped thinly
2 tbsp butter
2 tbsp olive oil
3 cloves garlic
1 tbsp paprika
Place half the butter and oil in a pan and turn on medium high heat. When the butter has completely melted, add the onions, covering them completely dousing them in the liquid, and then cook until slightly brown. Once you've caramelized the onions, add the rest of the ingredients (except for the kale) and cook covered on medium heat. Once the rutabaga is tender, add the kale and cook uncovered about 2 minutes or until the kale has wilted. Salt and pepper to taste.
