Potato harvest today! Red French fingerling and Magic Molly purple - about 20, 25 lbs - small harvest compared to what I usually dig up! Trying to stall the yellow potato harvest… Here’s hoping they’re more prolific. #alaska #alaskafood #akfood #alaskagrown #potatoes #taters #organic #organicproduce #organicgardening #alaskagardening #yardens #exquisiteingredients #delish #foodasart #veggies #growsomething
It’s Future Foods class at a Fairbanks magnet school, where students visit farms, learn about local foods at farm markets, and here get some cooking tips from Culinary Arts professor Chef Michael Roddey.
He worked with veggies students had selected at the Tanana Valley Farmers Market.
“Nestled among the kale and collard greens; kohlrabi; large, red heritage tomatoes; fennel, carrots, leeks and locally produced herb vinegars was raspberry jam, which Roddey used for sauteed cabbage and apples with sour raspberry sauce and fennel.
“The kids picked the raspberries and made the jam,” said teacher Colleen Smith.”
“Here is the earliest maturing pea of all. Alaska will grow from 2 to 3 feet tall depending on the weather and time planted. A good pea for eating fresh, freezing, canning or dried. Approx. 56 days till maturity.”
