Tonight my sister-in-law and I ate our first homegrown purple cabbage of the season. Crunchy tasty. Purple cabbage makes a great salad (or coleslaw) and lasts much longer than lettuce in the fridge. I see lots of coleslaw in our future with at least 10 more heads growing out back.
The amazing thing about my sisters-in-law is that they are both really incredible. Sometimes I like to keep the government out of it and just call them my sisters. This is a bit out of the realm of this blog- but my other sister-in-law is the most incredible chef. If you know me, you know I eat a lot of dessert, so I do not make this next statement this lightly, she cooks the best pie I have ever eaten. When we start our farm with commercial kitchen- she will be our farm chef. (And my personal pastry chef.) Doesn't she seem like the kind of person you want to know? She just started a blog featuring her homemade recipes. This stuff should be locked in a vault somewhere but she is letting it out. Check it. I think I should start challenging her to make recipes with the random things we have growing in the backyard. Challenge 1- What do you know how to make with purple cabbage? Discuss.
