National Stand up for real food day

How about on Nov 6 every CT consumer who cares about what they put in their mouth shows that by boycotting EVERY fast food joint in the state of CT.

Then we can go national.

It is time to make a statement.

Knockers, Pot and Kraut

Sheryl got this recipe on line somewhere, we revamped it a bit and it is WOW!!

In a large pot boil water, add 1 tbls kosher salt.

Add 10 whole washed red potatoes, cook 10-15 min or until almost done.

In another pot add Kraut and 1 cup apple cider, bring up to heat.

In a skillet add 2 tbls butter and one of PASTURED lard, NOT commercial lard that stuff will kill ya!! Add 1 overflowing tbls diced chives (fresh please )

When potatoes are almost done remove from water (save the water), cut in half or quarters, add to skillet and brown.

Poach Knockers 10 min then BBQ abot 3-4, slice in to 6 or 7 pieces.

To plate put Kraut in the center, ring part way around with potatoes and the rest of the way with Knocker slices.

Crack a good ice cold beer and REALLYYYYYYYYYYYYY enjoy.

Country Ribs receipe

OMG were these great.
Lay two sheets of foil on the counter.
Spread your fav BBQ sauce on the center area of the foil.
Lay the ribs on the sauce. Salt and pepper.
Cover the ribs with two more sheets of foil.
Fold sides and ends so as to make a tight packet.
Bake @250 for four hours, remove and rest 30 min.
Open the packet and recover the ribs with sauce. Place on med to hot grill. 4 Min per side or less, when you flip them add more sauce.
The trick is to not cook them more but to add the BBQ flavor.
Fall off the bone great !!

New test for receipe

This is a test for facebook, we are switching to a facebook site soon and will publish the address shortly.

In the meantime we are not doign chickens nor turkeys this year so we can concentrate on our ham project and build a ham house and a smoke house.

Sheryl works full time off the farm as do I. I work six days a week usually 10 to 12 hours per day so it takes us a long time to return calls and emails.
