Rhubarb Chutney

Don’t we all love strawberry/rhubarb pie? Of course we do – it’s delicious! But other than pie, do you use rhubarb in any of your dishes? I thought not! Today we’re going to fix that and I guarantee this rhubarb chutney will change your life!

Rhubarb Chutney

I used fresh picked rhubarb from Barrie Hill Farms with garlic, onion, golden raisins, white wine, honey and ginger. I bet you started drooling just reading those ingredients!

 

You can serve this on crusty bread with a sharp cheese.  I used Temiskaming cheese. If you don’t have access to this cheese, a sharp white cheddar or goat cheese will be perfect. This would also go well on chicken or pork and can be served hot or cold.  It is an easy dish to prepare and takes no time at all. There’s a fair bit of honey in this recipe but it’s needed to balance out all the flavours.

The Farm Has NOT Been Sold

Rumours.

For many years, people have been telling me that they have heard rumours that the farm has been sold. Now that we’re finally into spring, and as I look forward to a season full of bountiful harvests, I thought it would be appropriate to put those rumours to rest for once and for all. The farm has NOT been sold. It is still 100% owned and operated by the Gervais family. And the farm has in fact expanded a little over the last few years. In 2012, I was fortunate to be able to purchase a neighbouring farm, and it’s on that farm that the new apple orchard was planted. This has enabled us to provide you with a complete season pick your own experience, starting in May with asparagus, and ending in October with pumpkins and apples.

My chosen career, my vocation, is to be a caretaker of the land during the time I have left here on earth. Each spring, I like to take a walk to the very back of the farm – a corner of the farm that is not easily accessible because of hills and ravines. It’s one of my favourite spots. I can remember going on spring walks here with my parents in the early seventies. For some reason, there are still some very large white pine trees remaining here. My guess is they are around 200 years old. They must have been too small to harvest when the area was logged in the mid 1800s. And ever since then, they’ve been left alone, because it would be tough to get them out as logs. What’s the natural life span of a white pine tree? 400-500 years? Well these trees are around halfway there. They are majestic and tall. Almost as big as a few I’ve seen in Algonquin Park. And right here, just outside of Barrie. Wouldn’t it be great if they could escape the developer’s saw and make it to maturity? You and I will never see it. But maybe, just maybe, if I work hard, and you continue to choose local, we can all do our part to give them half a chance.

The entire team at Barrie Hill Farms is here to help you choose great tasting, healthy food and fun farm visits that will “Trump” the imports, while keeping Ontario green for future generations.

With your continued support, my family and I, and the whole team, look forward to caring for this land – the fields and the forests- for many more years to come.

See you soon – won’t be long now and asparagus will be ready,

Use good quality olive oil of your choice. because the success of this dish is entirely dependent on a high quality olive oil.

First Day of Spring!

The farm is up and running again and today is the first day of spring! Last Thursday, we welcomed four of our most senior workers back to Ontario from Mexico, and on Saturday we began pruning apples. Today they are working on our Honeycrisp apples. You can learn more about how they prune the trees here

Together, these men have a lot of experience and dedication to the farm. Francisco (second from left in the photo) is our longest serving employee. He has been with us since 1989, so this year will mark his 31st season. For Jesus and Marcelino, this will be their 12th seasons, and for Antonio (second from right), this will be year 9. They are happy to be back, and we’re extremely happy to have them!

Happy Spring,

Farmer Morris

PS – Only around 50 more sleeps until our own fresh Ontario asparagus is ready!!!

The spiral pasta is perfect for this because it grabs that pesto.  You can roast the tomatoes in the oven while the pasta is cooking or saute them as I did.  So many fun ways to do this dish and you can make it your own by adding mushrooms, peppers, eggplant, zucchini – whatever you happen to be craving that night.

Roasted Corn with Smoky Lime Butter

Roasted Corn with Smoky Lime Butter is a unique way of bringing out the best of your sweet corn.  Change it up and see your family’s reaction!

Roasted Corn with Smoky Lime Butter

I wanted to do a little something different taste-wise this time around and change up my cooking method as well. I usually soak the corn in milk for 30 minutes or so before boiling it but that just seems so boring sometimes. I love it on the grill but starting up the grill for just one thing is sometimes a pain and other times the grill is too crowded with fish and chicken and veggies.

Enter the oven method! Have you ever tried this before? This was my first time and it sure won’t be my last.

I cleaned it up a little by cutting the end off and removing a few loose strips. I just wanted to ensure that the silken ends didn’t flame up. Put them directly on the rack at 350 F for 30 minutes and they’re done. Super simple, super delicious.

Corn roasting method

The great thing about this method is that you can peel back the husks so easily and the silk goes with it – no mess! Do be careful about the steam though – they’ll be very hot.

This Strawberry Rhubarb Compote is so delicious! It was an experiment that I was a little leery about because I started out with the intention of making a simple rhubarb compote but wanted to avoid adding a lot of sugar. Yummy strawberries….and then the maple syrup…and then freshly squeezed orange juice. Result – DELISH and HEALTHY! Skip the refined sugar.

Best of all, this yummy little sauce is ready to eat in 10 minutes. You can use this on yogurt, oatmeal, ice cream, cake, trifle or go all out and make a rhubarb bellini! I think this would be great as a sorbet as well – just freeze it. Then combine this with ginger-snap cookies? Whoa – now we’re getting crazy!
