2 oz. shaved raw aged goat cheese ** Cranberry Ridge Farm
1/2 peeled sliced apples
1 small clove garlic, sliced
2 Tbsp olive oil
2 Tbsp water
Pinch of dried crushed red pepper
1 Rinse out the Swiss chard leaves thoroughly. Remove the toughest third of the stalk, discard or save for juicing. Roughly chop the leaves into inch-wide strips. Peel and slice into small pieces, a granny smith or other apple.
2 Heat a saucepan on a medium heat setting, add olive oil, a few small slices of garlic and the crushed red pepper. Sauté for about a minute. Add the chopped Swiss chard leaves and apple slices. Cover. Check after about 5 minutes. If it looks dry, add a couple tablespoons of water. Flip the leaves and apples over in the pan, so that what was on the bottom, is now on the top. Cover again. Check for doneness after another 5 minutes (remove a piece and taste it). Add salt to taste, and a small amount of butter. Remove the swiss chard and apples to a serving dish and top with shaved raw farm goat cheese **Cranberry Ridge Farm
Place the garlic scapes, Parmesan cheese, Asiago cheese, lemon juice, and pine nuts in the bowl of a food processor. Drizzle the olive oil over the mixture. Blend until the pesto is a brilliant green color and smooth in texture. Season with salt and pepper. Top with olive oil to keep from browning.
About the food we grow and sell: We are farmers committed to sustainability. Grindstone Farm, LLC. has been a NOFA-NY Certified Organic grower of fruits and vegetables since 1988. In addition, we raise non-certified, “all natural, pasture raised, free range” livestock. As our marketing and distribution capacity has grown, we've added products grown by other local farmers. We have helped other farms become organic. We know our customers want to eat year-round - and our employees need a paycheck year-round - so we decided to supplement with “non-local” organic food from a wholesale source as needed. This combination works for us. We hope it works for you too. We are committed to providing source identified sustainable food to customers, and a sustainable living to ourselves and our local farm partners. Thank you for supporting community agriculture.
