Fresh Facts Week 10: A reminder, some wise words & certified organic pumpkin pie!

By March 14, 2017Fresh Facts, Newsletter

I don’t usually make many mistakes on this newsletter, but I made two last week.
First off, you obviously don’t turn at Gorman to go over to the 15, you go over to the 14; Duh. I’m sure everyone figured that out and just gave me the benefit of a senior moment.
Second, I wrote all about Hachiya persimmons and then we didn’t even put them in the box for you first of the week folks. You had to be thinking; “Where’s the Hachiyas? End of the weekers were right on track.

However, I do have to do the disclaimer over again in case someone didn’t get a box last week so here goes: DON’T EAT THE HACHIYA PERSIMMONS RAW!!!
Now to make it more confusing, the end of the weekers are getting Fuyu Persimmons which you can eat hard like an apple. Here’s how to remember which is which. Hachiyas are Heart shaped, Fuyus are Flat. There, I either cleaned up the mess, or made it worse but it wasn’t for lack of trying.

I love reading to my grand children and just got in a fresh supply which I’d recommend:

Mr. Squirrel and the Moon
Sidewalk Flowers
You are (not) small
The golden Plate and
If you plant a seed

I’m not sure what the copyright rules are, so let me just summarize If you Plant a Seed.

A bunny and a mouse plant a carrot seed, a tomato seed and a cabbage seed with love and care and patience. Pretty soon, they’re so happy because they have a bunch of produce.

If you plant a seed of selfishness, it “will grow and grow and grow into a “Heap of trouble”. If you plant a seed of kindness, “in almost no time at all, the fruits of kindness will grow and grow and grow, and they are very sweet.”

The story ends with all the animals sharing a wonderful feast. The illustrations are beautiful and very sweet as well.

Everything I needed to know, I learned in kindergarten certainly applies here; everyone working together with a heart of sharing yields the best, sweetest harvest.

I think If you plant a seed perfectly illustrates what we’re doing here with AHO as well; ‘and it is very sweet.’

I was down at the kitchen last week and Sara and the ladies had all these pumpkins in various stages of being cut in half, seeds scooped out, baking the halves, huge bowls of fresh pumpkin puree, pie crusts…

Who on earth takes the time to make a certified organic pumpkin pie out of real organic pumpkins anymore?

Your AH Kitchen is one of the best kept secrets on the planet; everything handmade, organic and guaranteed delicious. The holidays they are a comin, you’re busy and Sara and crew are ready.
