Bouquet of the Week
October 4, 2018
Sunflowers, Zinnias, Cockscomb, Ageratum, Tuberose, Plume and Wheat Celosia
We've been growing specialty cut flowers on our Kentucky flower farm for more than 20 years and are dedicated to growing professional grade flowers for our local market.
But we also grow all sorts of produce, fruit trees, ornamentals, and other things just for ourselves and just for fun. Every now and then we grow something fun and unique enough that we just have to share it with our friends at the farmers market. We've got one of these special treats with us this week at the Bardstown Road Farmers Market.
Fresh Baby Ginger
Baby ginger is harvested young (of necessity here in Kentucky) before it develops a thick skin or fibrous interior. Baby ginger is tender and juicy, milder than mature ginger from the grocery store, with a bright piquancy. We use it for baking, savory dishes, tea, and candied ginger.
Tender baby ginger should be kept refrigerated to prevent drying and mold. For longer storage, keep it in the freezer. You can break off pieces as needed to grate or slice it straight from the freezer. We keep a year's supply this way until it's ready to harvest again next Fall.
Come see us!
