What's Fresh

Tuna is back for the next two weeks.  This weekend, October 11th fresh Pumpkins will be available through the Pumplin Project-island children selling pumpkins to raise money for Helpline.  Now's the time to take home fresh vegetables to put up for the winter. Bring your shopping bags and stock up!

Minted Pea Soup

Sometimes the simplest recipes are the best:

1-1/2 cups shelled peas (from about 1-1/2 lbs fresh peas)
1/2 small onion (chopped) or 1 clove of garlic
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1-2 tablespoons mint leaves
1 can of chicken broth
1 cup water
Salt and pepper to taste
Yogurt (optional)

Cook peas in 2 cups of boiling water for just a few minutes. Drain, reserving water for use later in the recipe. Puree peas in a food processor. Mix 2 cups of the cooking water, broth and lemon juice in a sauce pan. Add pureed peas and bring to a simmer. Turn off heat. Chop mint in a food processor and add to soup. Serve with a dollop of yogurt. (Serves 4)
