HARVESTING TIME

Yes! It’s harvesting time late upload and late update but still…
All about my Potatoe goodness, is the world’s fourth largest food crop, following rice, wheat, and mais (corn).
Eventually, agriculturalists in Europe found potatoes easier to grow and cultivate than other staple crops. It became known that potatoes contained most of the vitamins needed for sustenance.

FRESH POTATOES
FRESH POTATOES

My fresh harvest potatoes! Too late this year but anyway, harvesting potaoes is like digging for treasure and finding it. Potatoes is fat-free, cholesterol-free, high in Vitamin C, high in potassium &a good source of VitaminB6 &dietary fiber. Sounds good for diabetic like me.

Just like what you see here above photo, from farm to my kitchen-freshly cooked vegetables. Which varieties when and how grown, is no longer belongs to the life experience of the younger generation today. I am so thankful that I was given a chance to show it to my two kids specially to my daughter. With the help of my hubby was an experinced for our daughter too. Seasonal fruits and vegetables provide throughout the year for natural variation in the diet. The fruit and vegetable season calendar you know in which months which varieties are ripe and are offered regionally. I’m always amazed at what in our latitudes everything grows and thrives specially here in europe. The seasonal calendar is based on the relevant month currently ripe fruit and vegetables from Austria. Goods unheated greenhouses and polytunnels in off-peak times as well as Austrian stock items. The time data can be shifted due to the weather for a few weeks .
The natural use of ingredients, their processing and preparation, you can change your eating habits for the better in the long term. Thus, for example in a simple manner lowered the fat content, reduced the salt content or hard A compatible be avoided. Cooking is fun and you will taste the difference! Take it away from me Folks 😉 Happy Cooking!

SPINACH AND POTATOES

CREME FRAICHE- is from the French culture and means fresh cream . Crème fraîche with 40 % fat content is a versatile food and very creative in the modern kitchen . Because of the high fat content does not matter , on the contrary , it gives the crème fraîche the right taste . And since it is used in the meals for refining , crème fraîche is a varied addition.
