New Dried Mixes Now Available

This year we now have a new product available, our dried seasoning mixes.  Since it is a new product this year we will slowly be adding new mixes and new dried items throughout the season.  Right now we have available: Dried Scallions, Dried Mustard Greens and a Dried Greens and Garlic Mix, which contains Mustard Greens, Kale, Swiss Chard and Garlic Scapes.

These can be used for so many things you can basically throw it into your favorite dish.  They are great for adding to a dish that may be to liquid and need some thickening, since they are dried and will soak up liquid from what you are cooking.  It can be added to soups and stews for this purpose or even if you are making a stir-fry and it needs some thickening.  These seasonings would be great added to pastas and also one my favorite ways to use greens, by adding them to scrambled eggs.  The dried scallions would also make a great addition to dips just be sure to let them soak for a little while.

So don't forget to check out our new item at Valley City Farmers Market and keep checking back for our new mixes that we will be adding throughout the season.
