This recipe is fantastic with our Shiitake Mushrooms from Rock Run Creek Farm, but you can make them with portobellas as well. The original recipe is from the Moosewood cookbook.

Ingredients:

  • 2 Tbsp Butter

  • 2 Medium to Large Onions, chopped

  • 1 1/2 - 2 Lbs of Shiitake Mushrooms, sliced 1/4 -1/2 inch thick

  • 1 tsp sea salt

  • 3 Tbsp Fresh Dill, minced

  • 1 Tbsp Paprika

  • 4 Tbsp Lemon Juice

  • 3 Tbsp Flour

  • 2 cups Water

  • 1 cup Whole Milk, at room temperature

  • Cracked Black Pepper

  • 1/2 cup Sour Cream

  • Parsley, minced

Directions:

  1. In a large pot, melt butter over medium heat. Saute onion until soft and translucent. Add mushrooms, sea salt, dill, and paprika and stir well to coat mushrooms. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover and cook for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent burning.

  2. Stir in lemon juice, then sprinkle with flour - stirring the entire time, until well mixed in. Cook, uncovered, stirring frequently, for another 5 minutes.

This recipe comes to us from one of our members, Jamie Smith, and makes 2 quarts or 4 pints.

Ingredients:

  • Small okra, cleaned

  • Sea Salt

  • Fresh or Dried Dill

  • Garlic

  • Red pepper flakes or fresh minced peppers

  • Filtered Water

Directions:

(These are for pint jars, if using quarts simply double the quantities)

  1. Cut off the stem end of the okra. Lay a pint sized mason jar on its side, then fill with 2-3 dozen okra, as many as can fit snugly in the jar.

  2. Stand the jar back on it's end, and add the following:

    • 1/2 tsp of Sea Salt

    • 1/2 tsp of Dill

    • 2 cloves of Garlic, crushed

    • Pepper flakes or fresh, minced peppers - to taste

  3. Fill with filtered water, leaving 1 inch of head space at the top of the jar.

  4. Cover and "burp" (releasing air) daily. Store in a cool, dark place for 3-7 days until the ferment has reached your preferred taste and texture, then move to fridge for storage and enjoy!
