Yellow Tomato Soup

  from our dear friend Liz This was an amazingly simple and delicious soup she made for us a few summers ago and we loved it!  Made from the Golden Rave tomatoes…I suppose it would also be delicious with another variety of tomatoes.  Perfect for these cool days in the midst of tomato season.  Enjoy! […]

Tomatoes stuffed with Cream Cheese & Pesto

Donna got inspired again for delicious and pretty!   Ingredients: 20 Small Tomatoes (I used Jaune Flamme) 8oz Cream Cheese – softened 4oz Cilantro Pesto (or any of the pestos offered by GMG) Salt & Pepper 20 Basil Leaves   Directions: Slice a tiny piece off of the bottom of each tomato, so that they […]

Three Tomato Salsa

From Moosewood Restaurant New Classics This is our staple salsa recipe.  Of course these days we just chop any mix of the ingredients below and put them in a bowl, stir and enjoy.  We rarely even add the olive oil, it just doesn’t need it.  But as a guide to get going…ah, enjoy the freshness! […]

Fried Green Tomatoes

Fresh ripe tomatoes are generally the stars of the tomato show, but green tomatoes have their own special value.  We don’t have the volume that comes at the end of the tomato season, but plenty for a nice treat! Fried green tomatoes are tasty and quick to make (and great with hot sauce) – take […]

Black Currant Meringue Pie

Donna made this treat last year and we were all wowed.  Now you can do this with frozen black currants as well, but while they are fresh why not pie, and perhaps some Black Currant ice cream and fool and muffins and pancakes and just in your yogurt. Or for a lighter touch, Black Currant […]

Mustard and Herb Rubbed Rack of Goat

  This is the quick approach from Bruce Weinstein & Marc Scarborough and their GREAT cookbook, Goat.  Wonderful recipes and fun to read as they have a great sense of humor as well.  Another good option for the racks is the slow roast approach, resulting in meat that falls off the bone. Adjusted a bit […]

Creamy Basil Dressing

The basil is gorgeous and prolific and this may be my new favorite dressing.  There are definitely variations possible depending on your mood and ingredients on hand! We taste tested a few at farmer lunch and settled on a hybrid, which will be part of our Summer Farm Dinner!   Ingredients 1 cup packed fresh […]

Kale Salad

A few summers ago I really embraced Kale Salad.  I must admit I was a kale salad skeptic at one point, and I like kale.  But now, I am a full convert. Seems it might be time to start my Kale salad binging again.  Crisp, yet tender and it just feels like I must be […]

Connie’s Rhubarb Bread

An extended family favorite.  Mari’s mom, Connie, used to make this and then after she died, a local Rutland baker (and institution) Baba à Louis started making it and now Ruth, Erling’s partner, is a reliable source for this early summer quick bread.  Now that Rhubarb is thriving on the farm, I guess it is time […]
