Beans and Pulses
If you haven't yet stocked up on beans and peas and lentils - barley too - from Rounds Beans, the time is now! We use Marrow Fat peas in the crock pot with smoked ribs for a tasty dinner, Great White Northern beans make awesome vegetarian baked beans and the Red Lentils make a quick and easy (did I mention tasty?) soup. We had friends over recently and this 20 minute recipe was made fast and enjoyed by 2 families.
  1. Sautee an onion in sunflower, canola or olive oil,
  2. Add sliced carrots (2 to 3), a clove or two of chopped garlic, and sautee them also
  3. Pour in about a cup of red lentils (no soaking required).
  4. Add a can of tomatoes (we love the ONFC Organic cans!) and water to cover
  5. Add salt and a bay leaf or other herbs if you 'd like
  6. Let cook for about 20 minutes.
Enjoy with crusty bread and it's even better with a couple curls of cheese on top (some might add lemon juice)!

More about our suppliers (my second installment!):
  • Revive - Teas mixed by Helen using only organically grown ingredients. The names of her blends are great, including Please Make it Stop - PMS for short! 
  • Rounds Brand - Dried beans that we offer every few months. Fresher than you'll find in the grocery store!
  • Snider's Pork Sausage - The recipe was passed down through generations. This sausage got top marks from my dad and sister!
  • Snyder Heritage Farms - GMO and Drug Free turkey as well as maple syrup that adheres to organic principles. Both are the best we can find!
  • Stemmler's - Meats from local farms that are prepared with food sensitivities in mind. Ask us if you are looking for options that are Gluten, MSG, Lactose and Nitrate free
  • Tia's Bakery - Tasty breads and baked goods that are so good you wouldn't guess they were gluten and dairy free!
Here are some more favourites to look for:
  • Vibrant Farms Ground Beef back on the order form!
  • Gordon's Goat Dairy! A limited amount their award winning goat cheese available.
  • Spud's Own All Ontario Kettle Chips. 2 for $5!
  • Tortilla chips with Asparagus from Barrie's Asparagus! Available in Salted, Unsalted, Spicy and Nacho Cheese
  • Stoned Wheat and Vegetable Crackers too!
  • Organic Flour and Grains from Oak Manor. I hear the 7 grain cereal is tasty!
  • Turkey Necks and Backs (awesome for soup) from Snyder Heritage Farms are on sale! Only $2.75!
  • The finest flavoured chocolate bars from Anna Tolazzi. One of my favourites!
  • Onions, Carrots, Beets, Radishes and Potatoes. The winter staples!
  • The tasty sausage from Traditional Foods that you know and love is now brought to us from Gumboot Gourmet!

For those of you who grew and tended Purplestem Asters for this project (and those who didn't) here is a great upcoming event:
The World of Pollinators: What's the Buzz?
with Kim Fellows, MSc, Outreach Coordinator, Pollination Canada

Tuesday, February 26 at 6:30 pm
Forest Heights Library

Without pollinators, weĆ¢€™d be eating mainly grasses and grains. Kim will discuss the importance of pollination and threats to pollinators, as well as the Bee-Friendly Farming Initiative and a new citizen science project called the Purplestem Aster Pollination Adventure. Find out how you can help pollinators thrive.

Be well,
Maryrose and Rachael
