Water for steaming

Make It:
Cut all plums in half, remove pit. Place them in a steamer basket. Put basket in large pot, with enough water to cover bottom, but make sure it does not touch bottom of basket. Cover, and bring water to a boil over high heat. Once boiling, reduce heat a little. Allow plums to steam until tender and falling apart. Remove from heat and allow to cool. Once cool put plums in blender, blend until smooth. For baby food fill ice cube trays and freeze, when frozen remove and put into plastic bags to store in the freezer. Pull one or two cubes out and thaw, serve alone or with cereal added. For kids and adults mix with applesauce or pearsauce. Can also use in plum ginger sauce, used for dipping eggrolls in. Enjoy!

Abundant Harvest Box

This weeks box contained 3 eggplants, 4 zucchini, 1 head of cauliflower, 4 bell peppers, 3 bunches of grapes, 1 head baby bok choy, 1 carton cherry tomatoes, 1 bunch arugula, 1 head romaine, 17 red potatoes, and 10 pears. I also went to the farmers market this week and got a big bag of green beans, apples, fresh ginger, celery, scallions, chinese string bean, and mushrooms.
