February Harvests

Nectarines

We have very little nectarine fruits this year, however I am so pleased that I could  harvest them.  I have been eating them fresh, they are not quite soft or ripe.  I cooked, poached some of them for nectarine pie.Image

I baked nectarine  pie and I  used my home-made brioche for the pastry, it was a very light and decadent pie.  The family loved it.

The Vegetables

The Povapatch (the name of my vegetables patch) has very good harvest even though it does not have variety of plants.  This morning I harvested a zucchini and some fresh lettuces, it was a hot day, so I picked good enough fresh vegetables for our salad.  I am so pleased with the radicchio.  It looks so fresh, and it has beautiful rich deep red colour, I am sure it tastes good with crunchy textures.

Fresh Composed Salad
with sliced baked chicken

I prepared a quick composed salad from the harvest.  I mixed all the leafy lettuces, add in garlic crouton and sliced baked chicken breast flavoured with preserved lemon.  The salad dressing was so simple, it consisted of lemon juice, mustard, salt and olive oil.  It was a substantial salad and the family loved my offering.

The fruit and vegetable harvests are very good this month, they are just enough for my family, unfortunately I could not share them with friends.  Maybe next time.

 

Until Next Post
