In the pickup for our SE Portland and Lake Oswego/Luscher Farm shareholders this week:
We’ve been drying our delicious Amish Butter popcorn since the fall and finally – it is ready to POP! You’ll get whole ears in your share today which you can easily take off the cob and then use your favorite popcorn method & recipe (here’s mine!). If you have a grinder, it also makes amazing polenta.
You’ll be getting several items that we’ve spent quite awhile drying and curing this fall. We put them in a paper bag – trying to use less plastic – and hopefully that will keep them from getting wet. This includes: yellow onions, red shallots, the popcorn and dried peppers. The dried peppers are a new variety for us – the Aji family of peppers is native to Bolivia. This variety is called Criollo Sella, and it has beautiful golden fruit. The flavor is rich and citrusy with middling heat. They make a nice hot sauce or can be ground for a flavorful seasoning.
