Jersey Fresh Veggies for May!

Asparagus – All of May

It’s finally asparagus season! What a versatile vegetable – they’re wonderful raw in salads or as a crunchy snack by themselves or with your favorite dip. And of course, they’re also great as a side dish – sautéed (quick and easy – sauté with olive oil, salt, pepper, lemon juice and parmesan), grilled, roasted, or steamed and topped with a complementary sauce. Add them sliced to soups, noodle and rice dishes, or anything your heart desires.

You can keep your Jersey Fresh asparagus fresh longer by treating asparagus bundles like a bouquet of flowers – trim the ends and stand them up in a container with about 2 inches of water, leaving the elastic on. Cover them with a loose plastic bag and keep refrigerated; change the water if it gets a bit cloudy. Your asparagus should stay fresh right to the tips for a full week.

Lettuce – May 20-July 15

Jersey Fresh lettuce is, of course, perfect in salads and sandwiches, but there are even more ways you can use these healthy greens.

  • Like its leafy green cousins, lettuce can be shredded and used as a soup-topper for added crunch and freshness. It can even be grilled, then topped with parmesan or dressing.
  • Lettuce wraps are a great way to replace bread and get an extra serving of greens – fill them with tuna or chicken salad, meats topped with sprouts and/or shredded carrots, falafel, or use your creativity for something totally different. You can even spread the leaves with hummus, an aioli or another type of condiment for a healthful, tasty and guilt-free lunch or afternoon snack.
  • Stir-fry lettuce as a side to or part of Asian dishes. Chopped lettuce can be added to rice and noodle bowls too.

Spinach – May 5-June 25

Naturally nutrient-rich, Jersey Fresh spinach is one of those leafy greens that you want to take advantage of when it’s at its peak locally. If you’re not a fan of adding crispy raw spinach to your salads, there are plenty of ways to tuck it into recipes and still get all that great nutrition.

  • Replace half of the basil in your pesto recipe with spinach – you’re adding even more vitamins and minerals to your dish.
  • Add chopped spinach to quiches and frittatas.
  • Include shredded or chopped spinach to soups and stews. 

Jersey Fresh fruits and veggies will be with us now and throughout the summer – take advantage while they last!

Lots of Mulch Varieties!

Mulch not only makes your garden and landscaping look neat and attractive, it also nourishes the soil, plants, and trees while helping the soil maintain moisture during those hot summer days. You’ll find a selection of Jolly Gardener hardwood, cedar, root and black mulch at Homestead – we even deliver locally.

Homestead’s Eco-Friendly Sustainability Initiative

Last month we told you about Lambertville’s new plastic bag ordinance that will officially take effect on January 1, 2020. We at Homestead have jumped in already with our reusable handmade t-shirt bags, each with a different look. Our reusable t-shirt bags are only $2, with proceeds going to the St. Andrew’s Thrift Shop in Lambertville. We’re also carrying mesh produce bags in a variety of sizes.

If you forget your reusable bags, just visit our Take a Bag, Leave a Bag tree, where you can pick up a bag or two for that day’s shopping at Homestead. Next time you visit, pay it forward by donating a couple of reusable bags to the tree for others to use in a pinch.

Every little bit helps to keep our beautiful Delaware River free of plastic debris while furthering our community’s sustainability and eco-friendliness. We’ll keep you up to date on the Lambertville Environmental Commission’s “Ditching Disposables” initiative and any of their special events in our blog posts and on our Facebook page. Sign up for our newsletter to stay updated in your inbox.

Welcome Back! Opening for the Season April 12

Welcome Back! Opening for the Season April 12

Welcome Back! Opening for the Season April 12

We’re opening for our 30th season on Friday, April 12! Where did the time go? It’s hard to believe thirty years have gone by since we opened our farm market, and we’ve loved every minute of providing fruits, veggies, gardening supplies and prepared foods to our wonderful Lambertville community.

April is Ablaze in Flower Glory!

Spring is the season of vibrant colors just waiting to brighten your home and landscaping! Our hanging plants, flower and vegetable plants and gardening supplies from mulch, soil and organic compost to seeds, baskets and pots (including eco-friendly selections) are just waiting to help you make your home look its best, inside and out.

We’ll even help you pot your plants—just bring us one of your pots or buy one of ours, pick out a plant from our large selection, and we’ll pot it for you.

What’s In For April?

Everything! You’ll find all our shelves fully stocked with fresh produce, ready for your meal planning and recipes. Every month, we’ll be sharing with you on our blog and on Facebook all the local seasonal produce you can look forward to. Tag us on Instagram (@homestead_farm_lambertville) and show us how you use our fruits and veggies in your recipes, and don’t forget to pick up something yummy from our bakery section for dessert. We’ve got fresh breads and some gluten-free selections too!

Don’t feel like cooking? Running on a tight schedule? We’ve got you covered with lots of delectable prepared dishes for both lunch and dinner, plus our famous Market Meals that are plentiful and a great value.

And we’re stocking our pantry with lots of local artisan products—who can resist Griggstown Farm meats or Sugar Maple Jerseys dairy products?—including local honey, salsas, jams and so much more. We’ve also got plenty of organic and gluten-free selections.

New Lambertville Plastic Bag Ordinance

Recently Lambertville passed a single use plastic bag ban that will help reduce the unrecyclable plastics that not only won’t break down in landfills, but also can make its way to our beautiful Delaware River. Although the new ordinance will take effect on January 1, 2020, we’re excited to help keep Lambertville environmentally friendly now by offering our own handmade reusable shopping bags made from t-shirts, which you can find at our farm market.

We’re also carrying mesh produce bags and introducing our new “Take a Bag Leave a Bag” program. If you have more reusable bags than you need, you can bring them to our “bag tree” and leave them for customers who need one. It’s a different way of recycling and paying sustainability forward.

Fresh produce every day. Locally grown produce in season. Homemade lunches and dinners to go. Fresh-baked award-winning pies.

Apples, Paris, Pumpkin pie

Apples, Paris, Pumpkin pie

Apples, Paris, Pumpkin pie

Whether you mull it, spike it, or sip it, apple cider is synonymous with autumn and here at Homestead, we’ve got Melick’s premium and unfiltered available for whatever way you cider. Pressed at their New Jersey cider mill from September through January, Melick’s is cold pasteurized to preserve the full taste and flavor of their freshly picked apples.

Consider the apple — an ancient fruit revered by Romans and Greeks as a symbol of love and beauty. “It is remarkable how closely the history of the apple tree is connected with that of man,” contemplated Henry David Thoreau. Brought to America somewhere in the 1600’s and cultivated on most farms during the settlement of the United States, there are now over 100 varieties grown commercially and Homestead has stocked some of your favorites—Macoun, Red Delicious, Golden Delicious, Honey Crisp, Fuji, and McIntosh.

Paul Cezanne once said, “I will astonish Paris with an apple,” and went on to create timeless masterpieces using the iconic apple as inspiration and subject. Celebrate your own creativity by picking up a few varieties of your choice and simmering up a batch of simple applesauce or baking an apple pie. Speaking of pies, we carry delectable ones, including pumpkin, a seasonal favorite which would probably taste amazing accompanied by a pint of our Bassett’s Salted Caramel Pretzel ice cream.

Looking for ideas for Meatless Monday cooking? Homestead’s escarole is the perfect main ingredient for making a simple but hearty supper like this Cannellini Bean and Escarole Soup. Another idea? Any of our squash is the perfect start to a healthy, satisfying Buddha Bowl.

Mums, Cabbage, pumpkins, gourds, Indian Corn — we’ve got it all. The autumnal cornucopia is bursting here at Homestead. Stop by for your share of the seasonal bounty..

Fresh produce every day. Locally grown produce in season. Homemade lunches and dinners to go. Fresh-baked award-winning pies.

All good things are worth waiting for and Homestead’s July trio of tomatoes, corn, and peaches is about to bring the wait to sweet fruition. Whether you’re looking for sweet, savory, or somewhere in between, this month’s bounty of fruits and vegetables will provide you plentiful options.

While the old farmers’ adage, “knee high by the Fourth of July,” may be a bit off between the science of genetics and the delay of the 2018 growing season, Jersey corn has finally arrived! However you measure it, at 800 kernels and 16 rows per ear, corn makes a delicious addition to summer meals.  Try grilling them with this fun recipe for Crazy Corn (Elotes Callejeros),  courtesy of one of my favorite chefs, Pati Jinich.

Summer peaches make their debut this week and withNJ ranking 4th nationally in production, it’s no wonder there are more than 100 varieties available from the 5,500 acresof orchards throughout the state.  With names like Obsession, Devotion, and Temptation, the promise of a fresh and fragrant peach for snacking or baking is irresistible.  Now that I own an ice-cream maker (and I highly encourage you to purchase one too), I’ll be churning up a batch of Stella Parks Bourbon Peach Brown Sugar Ice Cream Recipe since she’s the whole reason I purchased an ice-cream maker tobegin with!

Expect Jersey tomatoes to roll in on the 14th.  Technically a fruit, but legally labeled a vegetable in 1893,  the iconic Jersey tomato is a staple ingredient in everything fromTrenton Tomato Pie to Campbell’s Soup.  Any way you slice it,  you’re in for a juicy, tasty treat, and here’s Ina Garten’s marvelously delicious recipe for Tomato and Goat cheese tarts.  You can always count on her to keep it easy.

The Asparagus Has Arrived!

The Asparagus Has Arrived!

The Asparagus Has Arrived!

The ancients appreciated their asparagus. Long before Clarence Birdseye and his US Patent #1,773,079 marked the inception of the modern frozen food industry, Emperor Caesar Augustus had an “Asparagus Fleet”— an elite military unit complete with the fastest runners, who would carry asparagus spears high into the Alps to be frozen for later use. Caesar, in fact, coined the term “Velocius quam asparagi conquantur”—literal translation “faster than cooking asparagus,” colloquially meaning, “get going already.”

Once dubbed the “Vegetable of Kings,” even King Louis XIV’s affinity for asparagus was so passionate he had them cultivated in greenhouses so he could enjoy them year round. The Greek Physician Galen touted the health benefits of asparagus during the second century AD and his claims hold great truth with this vegetable that’s low in calories and a good source of vitamins, minerals, fiber, and protein.

Homestead’s fresh asparagus has arrived from Katona Farms, a fourth-generation operation for over 60 years, dedicated to cultivating Jersey fresh fruits and vegetables. This versatile veggie can be wrapped in prosciutto, tossed in pasta, broiled, baked and grilled. But sometimes, simplicity is what best suits a fresh quality ingredient. Try this delicious recipe for Lemony Roasted Asparagus, courtesy of Cookie and Kate:

INGREDIENTS

Basic roasted asparagus

1 large bunch (about 1 pound) fresh asparagus
1 to 2 teaspoons olive oil
Salt, to taste
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste

My seasonings (use one or all, like I did)

Zest and juice of 1/2 medium lemon, preferably organic
Lemon wedges, from the remaining 1/2 lemon
Sprinkle of finely grated Parmesan cheese (optional)
Small handful fresh mint, finely chopped
Light sprinkle of red pepper flakes

Other options

Pat or two of butter
Garlic butter
Light drizzle of balsamic reduction or regular balsamic vinegar
Toasted sliced almonds

INSTRUCTIONS

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Snap off the woody ends of the asparagus (if you sharply bend the asparagus near the base, it will snap in the right place). Discard the ends.
Line a large, rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper for easy cleanup. Place the asparagus on the sheet and drizzle with 1 to 2 teaspoons olive oil, just enough to lightly coat the asparagus. Sprinkle salt and pepper over the asparagus, and toss until the spears are lightly coated in oil. Arrange the spears in a single layer on the pan.
Bake until the asparagus is tender and roasted to your desired level of doneness (I may have left mine in a little longer than necessary, but I like the crispy tips). Very thin asparagus, like the kind shown here, will take as little as 10 to 12 minutes, whereas thicker asparagus will need 15 to 20 minutes.
Transfer the roasted asparagus to a serving platter and season however you’d like. You could keep it simple with a squeeze of lemon juice, or just Parmesan, or add a pat of butter or drizzle of balsamic vinegar. For my variation here, I grated the zest of about half a lemon over the asparagus using a Microplane, then squeezed the juice of half of a lemon over it, and garnished with a few lemon wedges, for good measure. Then I grated some Parmesan over the dish, followed by a light sprinkle of chopped mint and a very light sprinkle of red pepper flakes.

29th Season Opener by Susan Welsh

Welcome to another season of freshness with Homestead Market. We first opened our doors in 1989, the same year the Slow Food movement was officially founded with its mission to provide food that is “fresh and healthy, free of pesticides and chemicals, and produced and accessed in a way that’s beneficial to all – from the farmer to the eater.” Here at Homestead, we embrace those same values by providing you with local, delicious, high-quality products. 
This season we’ve added Mangalitsa pork to our selection of meats. Mangalitsa or “Mangalita” is an Old World breed and traces its roots back to the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Often referred to as “the Kobe beef” of pork due to it’s melt-in-your-mouth, buttery flavor, it’s also high in Omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants.  
Our cuts of Mangalitsa include bacon, ham, and ground meat all from Eagles Nest Farm in Stockton. A diet of grains, vitamins, and sunflower seeds imparts the meat with its nutty flavor. Now that BBQing weather is right around the corner, why not fire up a Mangalitsa Burger? Here’s a recipe from Ray Ray’s Hog Pit featured on Diners Drive-Ins and Dives:  Mangalista Brat Burger.
We continue to offer homemade lunches and dinners to- go, our award-winning pies, a variety of soups and our Thai food prepared by in-house chef Bhu. As always, there’s also plenty of local produce and proteins for you to make your own delicious meal.
 
Spring is in bloom at Homestead! Our lettuces and pansies, herbs and tomato plants are just waiting to be planted in your home garden. Plus we’ve got you covered for every gardening need from soil and seeds to tools and potting supplies.
We look forward to seeing you, our loyal customers, and spending another season together celebrating the bounty of our local farms and the blessings of our community.
