We are busy here at Home Farm Herbery at many things such as starting many organic and heirloom seeds in the greenhouse, getting new raised planters built, creating new herb blends and putting new organic and heirloom seeds up on Local Harvest as they become ready and proven for 2013 plantings.
We start off our chilly mornings with some of our Home Farm Herbery teas and we find one of our favorites is our Herbal Chocolate Chai and it can be found at this link
It been cold here with a lot of wind that brings us a low chill factor so the other day I made some good pumpkin soup and here is the recipe.
Zesty Pumpkin Soup
Makes 6 good size cups
1/4 cup butter
1 cup chopped onion
1 garlic clove, crushed
3 cups chicken broth
1-3/4 cups (16 oz) can) Libby's solid-pack pumpkin
1 cup half & half
Optional: sour cream & chives
In large saucepan, melt butter, sauté onion and garlic until soft.
Add Home Farm Herbery’s Zesty Pumpkin Soup Blend
and cook 1 minute.
Add broth gently, uncovered, for 15 to 20 minutes.
Stir in pumpkin and half & half; cook 5 minutes.
Pour into blender container. Blend until creamy.
Serve warm, or reheat to desired temperature.
Garnish with dollop of sour cream and chopped chives, if desired.
That soup coupled with some of Home Farm Herberys hearth baked crusty carraway rye bread was just the thing for a healthy delicious supper. Our carraway seeds are so good and can be found at http://www.localharvest.org/caraway-seeds-C24113
