Get to Know Your Produce: Organic Kiwi Berries

                 Get to know your Organic Produce: Kiwi Berries

Our Variety Boxes feature delicious Kiwi Berries this week. Our Kiwi Berries are grown about ten hours east of Boise in Sotherlin, Oregon on a family owned Organic farm. See more of their story and interesting Kiwi Berry facts below.

  • Can be ripened until dark and wrinkled for full flavor.

More About the Kiwi Berries Farm Life

Dennis and Jean Wilde started their farm in Sutherlin, Oregon, in 2012. Dennis had retired but wanted to remain active; he convinced Jean to go into farming, and they purchased 180 acres. Their intention was to plant olive trees for olive oil, thus the name Popeye’s Girlfriend in reference to Olive Oyl from the old Popeye cartoon. In June 2013, they planted 3,100 olive trees, and in December that year a killing freeze took out half their trees, with the other half reduced to stumps that fortunately re-sprouted from the roots. This experience made it clear, olive oil alone was not going to sustain the farm, so they turned to kiwi berries on the recommendation of a neighbor. Kiwi berries are a cold hardy fruit that do well in the Pacific Northwest climate and are becoming popular in the U.S. The Wilde’s now intensively farm 64 acres total, with 26 acres in kiwi berry production and another 22 acres slated for kiwi berries in the coming years. They hope this becomes a multi-generational business that will be attractive to their children and grandchildren, and be a strong source of high quality, organic food into the future.

Salad Rolls – Fresh Summer Food. Week night quick.

Every season there seems to be something I can’t get enough of. This summer it is Salad Rolls. My husband loves tacos and likes to eat them nearly every week. I joke that these are my Asian Tacos. I could easily eat them every week. They best part is that they are very easy to prepare and we normally have the ingredients on hand.


 

 

 

Ingredients:

  • 2 oz. rice stick noodles (optional, but normally included)
  • 1 cup shredded or matchstick carrots
  • 1 cup thinly sliced cabbage (I like red best, but any will work)
  • ½ cup chopped cilantro (basil and parsley are also good in the mix)
  • 1 cucumber peeled, seeded and cut into matchsticks
  • 1 sweet pepper, seeded and thinly sliced
  • 1 green onion, cut into thin strips length wise
  • 1 package of rice sheets

Notes: Cooked meats optional (Chicken and shrimp work well). Try other veggies! We like summer squash or zucchini chopped into matchsticks. I love to load these with chopped spinach. 

Simple Peanut Sauce for Dipping. To prepare combine: ½ cup creamy peanut butter and ¼ cup sweet chili sauce.

Directions:

1.      If using noodles cook according to package directions and set aside. We like these best with just vegetables, but they are traditionally made with the noodles.

2. Prepare the rice sheets according to directions.

3. Layer with preferred amounts of each ingredient and roll up.

Enjoy!
