Savings from the Farm

September 12th, 2006 at 06:02 pm

I went to the Farmstand at a nearby farm and this is what I bought for $10.48.

3 heads of broccoli
1 head of cauliflower
6 ears of corn
6 nectarines
5 pounds of kohlrabi
1 large red pepper

Much, much cheaper than anything in the stores right now. Going to the source when you live near it anyway really helps cut down on the grocery expenses.

I am going to go down to one of the farms this week and get corn to freeze. There is this one farm that sells ears of corn 10 for $1.00, so I usually get 100 ears for $10 and do them up for the freezer. DH is allergic to corn so it is only for the 3 of us and it lasts a long time.

    Kohlrabi! My dad used to grow it, and serve it in a cream sauce. What do you do with them? (Not that I've seen it in the stores here lately.)

    Oh, I don't use the tops at all, just the swollen stem part, just cut off the bumpy skin, and slice it up and eat it raw. You can prepare them like potatoes but I don't bother as I like them raw. It gives a good crunch.
