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!

Tani Creek Farm Pesto
2 cups freshly picked basil (chopped, tightly packed)
8 tbsp olive oil
5 cloves garlic
pinch of salt
3 tbsp soaked sunflower seeds or pine nuts

Blend the above ingredients in food processor.

3 or more tbsp parmesan cheese
2 tbsp butter

Mash cheese and butter together in bowl.  Add the pesto base to cheese and mix.  This makes a rich and delicious pesto to eat on local bread, crackers, and especially penne pasta.  Add to hot pasta with sauteed zucchini and sliced tomatoes for a delicious dinner

Bless the flowers and the fruits
Bless the leaves and stem and bless the roots.
