Two More Good Reasons to Grow Haricot Vert Beans





Haricot Vert with Shallots



Ingredients:
1/2 pound of haricot vert, trimmed hopefully that you grew yourself.
2 teaspoon butter (Please not margarine)
1 Tbsp Dried Shallots,
Salt and pepper to taste
2 tablespoons diced tomato
Wedge of lemon

Directions:
Bring a pot of well-salted water to boil. Boil haricot vert for 3.5 minutes (yes, I honestly believe that this level of timed precision will be rewarded). Plunge them into an ice bath and drain the beans.

In your empty pot (because we’re always looking to save dish-washing time in the smitten kitchen) melt two teaspoons of butter over medium heat. Add the shallot and sauté them until they’re just translucent, not browned–about one to two minutes. Add the drained and cooled haricot vert back into the pot and reheat them in the butter and shallots. Season with salt and pepper. Spread haricot vert and shallot onto a plate, throw the diced tomato over them and squeeze a few drops of lemon juice* over the dish. Serve immediately.

Haricot Vert Beans with Butter and Herbs


Ingredients:

1 pound thin green beans (haricot vert), trimmed
1/4 cup red onion, chopped fine
3 Tbsp butter





Salt and pepper to taste
Lemon wedges

Directions:

1 Bring a large pot of salty water to a boil. Prepare a large bowl of ice water. Boil the beans for 2 minutes. Plunge them into the ice water to stop the cooking and set the color. Drain the beans and pat dry on a cloth or paper towel.
2 Heat the butter over medium-high heat in a large sauté pan. Cook the onions until translucent, about 2-3 minutes.
3 Add the green beans and sauté for 2-3 minutes, stirring often.
4 Add all the herbs and some salt and pepper and toss to combine. Cook for 1 minute more.
Serve hot or at room temperature, with lemon wedges.


 
 

How to use our Sun Dried Tomatoes

Sun Dried Tomatoes (All Natural)
One of the things we love to do in the Home Farm Herbery Creativity Center Kitchen is to create our famous Sun Dried Tomatoes and when we do we are left with the best gourmet Sun Dried Tomatoes that have a sweet, distinctive and tangy taste and aroma. 

Our sun-dried tomatoes are a great staple to give a quick flavor boost to recipes, but you will need to first reconstitute them.

 Here's how:
Place sun-dried tomatoes in heat-proof bowl.
Completely cover with boiling water.
Let sit for 30 minutes until soft and pliable.
Drain and pat dry.

Tips:
Reserve the soaking liquid to use in soups and sauces.
Refrigerate and use leftovers within three days or cover with oil and refrigerate and use within two weeks.
To reconstitute in oil, simply cover with a good-grade olive oil for 24 hours before using
Sun-dried tomato oil may be reserved to use in salad.

Just say NO to gene-altered foods

Everything you wanted to know about Lemon Grass order some today






Lemon Grass, Dried, Organic

At Home Farm Herbery each year we plant enough Lemon Grass for our favorite customers needs.  Lemon Grass is also known as Lemongrass, Barbed Wire Grass, Silky Heads, Citronella Grass, Camel's Hay or Cochin Grass and our Lemon Grass has a  pleasant, lemony taste and aroma with subtle with ginger undertones

Ingredients: Organic Lemon Grass Dried

Lemon Grass is used to add a citrus-like aroma and fresh ginger-like flavor to marinades for poultry and fish or as a flavoring for soups, stews, salads, and food dressings such as curries or marinades. Unless the Lemon Grass is minced and mixed into the food dish, it is best to add larger strips to the dish and then remove before serving, since it does not break up and disappear when cooking.  You can use it in Thai cuisine, rice, soups, curry, beef, salad, chicken, vegetables and stir fry and it is great when you add it to rice just before cooking.

 Lemongrass is also thought to have numerous health benefits, especially when used in combination with other Thai spices such as garlic, fresh chilies, and coriander. In fact, scientists are now studying Thailand's favorite soup: Tom Yum Kung, which contains all of these herbs and spices, with lemongrass as the key player. Tom Yum is thought to be capable of combating colds, flu, and even some cancers.

1 oz. Sampler   $4.95     all orders are shipped free and all orders come with a free herb or herb blend of our choice.  Plus we will include a free recipe for Tom Yum Soup!

Dried Culinary Sage

 Chemical free from Home Farm Herbery, our dried Sage is grown in our own hot, sunny part of Kentucky.

This common garden sage has been known and used for culinary and medicinal purposes for centuries. Culinary Sage popular in nearly every European cuisine and is used variously to flavor meats, poultry, soups, puddings, cheeses and vegetables. Its unmistakable peppery flavor makes it popular for use in poultry and pork stuffing, and to flavor and preserve sausage meats.

Sage can be used to flavor and preserve nearly any meat or cheese, and is often used in soups and salads as well.

Taste is not the only part of sage’s purported benefits. The ancient Greeks considered sage to be a valuable healing herb, and used it to treat consumption, ulcers and other digestive problems. It has been used to lower fevers and treat snake bite. Used as a tea, sage can either stop sweating when drunk cold, or produce sweating when taken hot. It has been used to treat headache, and is believed in various cultures to aid memory and thinking.  Medicinally, it has been shown by modern research to prevent blood clots from forming, and has a long tradition of healing and treating digestive ills.

Gourmet Dried Shallots for sale

Dried Shallots

 
At Home Farm Herbery it takes 18 pounds of fresh shallots to produce 1 pound of Dried Shallots so we have created these for those busy cooks who do not have time to create their own.

Shallots are a member of the onion family and are a cross between garlic and an onion. Their flavor isn’t as potent as a white onion and is more like a perfect fusion of mild garlic and sweet onion with the flavor profile of a sweet onion with subtle yet complex garlic undertones.

The French have always used shallots in their cooking and now here in the good old USA Dried Shallots are becoming more popular in the baking of breads or crumbled and sprinkled over burgers, chicken, fish, omelets, vegetable dishes, salads, salad dressings, sauces, soups and steaks. 

You can easily toss Dried Shallots into most dishes as they will have enough moisture to reconstitute them. If you wish to add them to a salad or another dry dish you can reconstitute first by covering them completely with water and letting them stand for about 5 minutes and then drain the excess liquid. If you want to use these more like fresh shallots and sauté in olive oil or butter we recommend that you reconstitute them first.

For substitution or conversion purposes (and because they are so potent) use ½ as much Freeze Dried Shallots as fresh shallots. A ½ teaspoon of dried shallots equals one shallot clove.

We suggest you put your dried shallots into glass jars once you get them as they tend to clump and or break down quicker when left in a bag that may get jostled around in your spice cabinet.

4 oz resealable bag is 15.95

16 oz resealable bag is $39.95
