The vegetables for this Harvest Monday came from the Edible Landscape garden at Dutchess County Farm & Home Center, Rt. 44, Millbrook, NY.
The Edible Landscape is a project of the Dutchess County Master Gardeners where I am a volunteer. To learn more about the Edible Landscape, please visit: http://www.ccedutchess.org/aghort/community-horticulture/190-edible-landscape
The leeks are long and white, about 18″, just gorgeous.
Cut white section into about 3″ lengths. Brown lightly in a butter and olive oil combination, add broth or white wine, cover simmer until tender, enjoy. Cut the green parts into about 4″ lengths, place in freezer bag, date, label and freeze. Add to pot when making broth.
Celeriac also known as celery root. One of my favorite root vegetables. Will write more in a future post.
The delicious French salad Celeriac Remoulade, is shredded celeriac dressed with a mustard mayonnaise. I like to use it in stews and soups or mash with potatoes. Add the leaves and stems to the pot when making broth.
These are just some of the vegetables grown in the Edible Landscape. There are also herbs, edible flowers and fruits. To learn more, visit the web site above or if you are in the area, visit at different seson so see the changes.
