Stop by Hattie’s Garden on Tuesday, September 19 from 1 to 4 and Thursday, September 21 from 10 to 4 for the sale of produce, meat, eggs, cheese, fish and plants.
As mentioned last week, we are harvesting lemongrass which can be used whole, sliced or pounded to a paste. Use whole lemongrass in stews and curries (remember to remove it before serving). Chop and use to make marinades and soups or add to stir-fries.
You can store fresh lemongrass for up to ten days in the refrigerator before using it. To preserve its usability, wrap the root ends in a damp paper towel secured with elastic, similar to how cut flowers are frequently kept. Otherwise, they’ll do just fine in the freezer, either uncut or pre-prepped. Try portioning minced, pounded, or grated grass into an empty ice tray for no-fuss future use.
You can also find us at the Historic Lewes Farmers Market (HLFM) located at the George H.P. Smith Park on Saturday from 8 to 12. In the event of inclement weather on Saturday, the HLFM will be located at the Lewes Elementary School parking lot at 820 Savannah Road.
