Market News

We are harvesting Cranberry Hibiscus from the garden – great for a nice, hot, tea with a natural lemon/cranberry flavor! This sounds real soothing after signs of “winter” showed up this morning! – see recipe below.

David drinks this tea daily to keep his blood pressure low which keeps him off blood pressure medicine. However, if you don’t want to lower your blood pressure, you may want to avoid this tea. But, if you are not as risk of low blood pressure, hibiscus tea can be very beneficial:

We still have leg of lamb available – price reduced to $40/leg. See the Leg of Lamb Recipe below. Plus, you can find many more recipes and all kinds of information about eating and cooking lamb here:
American Lamb

And, don’t forget to order your chicken – they just got here and are already selling out fast! Min order of 6 birds. This item must be picked up at the farm but, it will be the freshest bird you’ve ever had!


Cranberry Hibiscus Tea

Peel the outer part (red/rose colored) of the calyxes away from the seed. Place as many as you’d like (more for a stronger tea and less for a milder tea) in a cup. Pour boiling water into the cup and steep for several minutes to an hour (the longer you steep, the stronger the tea). Strain out the calyx parts (optional) then, sweeten (optional) and enjoy.
