Putting up Produce

The asparagus and broccoli have been blanched and placed in shrink-vacuumed bags and placed in the freezer for use this winter.

Here is a recipe for a quick and delicious use of some of your broccoli

Chicken Tortellini Alfredo with broccoli
1) Grill seasoned chicken breasts, slice
2) Heat a jar of your favorite Alfredo sauce, seasoned with a few flakes of Cayenne if desired (may need to thin with a bit of milk) in a large saute pan
3) Cook a head of broccoli which has been separated into florets, drain and add to Alfredo sauce
4) Cook a package of cheese tortellini according to directions, drain and add to Alfredo sauce mixture
5) Toss all ingredients together and place chicken strips atop the past mixture. Delicious, easy and fast!

Berries are coming in and they will be picked, placed on a cookie sheet and allowed to freeze before packing in freezer boxes. Jam recipes are being researched for the black berries (because I don't like to eat them but do love a good blackberry jam on a toasted English muffin). I am planning on giving away some jams as Christmas gifts
