Cucumbers

img828Our clients love cucumbers! It’s one of the most in demand veg each week in our food basket.  We love it  too on our salad, fruit shake or as a dip to our grilled pork, lamb or chicken.

As a dip it is best to make it into a meze (pronounced meh-ZEH) or as an appetizer.

Over the years of living in Europe and loving Mediterranean food, we learnt how to make Tzatziki which is a tangy dip to not only kebabs or grilled pork or chicken but to pita bread as well.

If you are a beginner, we found this straightforward 2 step recipe from the BBC. So easy to make –

Tzatziki

Ingredients

  • 350g/12oz Greek yoghurt
  • 1 cucumber
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 cloves of garlic grated finely
  • dash of extra virgin olive oil
  • paprika for spinkling

Preparation method

  1. The best result is achieved by peeling and de-seeding the cucumber before grating. Hang the grated cucumber in muslin cloth or a tea towel in order to squeeze out all the excess liquid.
  2. Combine the yoghurt, cucumber, lemon juice and garlic. Add a dash of olive oil and sprinkle with paprika.

Hope you love them as much as we do!

Japanese and American cucumbers are available at TheVillageGreenShop including pastured pork, chicken and grass-fed lamb.

*is an organic farming method that stresses the biological methods in regard to humane treatment of animals,food quality and soil health (such as green manures, cover crops and composting). However, biodynamics takes it a bit further. In addition to organic biological practices, biodynamic practices also incorporate metaphysical aspects of farming. You read that correctly — metaphysical. Farmers who practice a biodynamic approach consider the life force of the farm. Think of it this way: Conventional farming is to biodynamic farming as conventional medicine is to homeopathic. Source: How Biodynamic Agriculture Works by Maria Trimarchi

Note:

  • All items in the food list are seasonal and local products so some items might not be available at the time of order, and due to heat and rain it affects harvest and price. (Probably you have the same questions as we do – how might we embed resilient systems in agriculture to create sustainability in production?)
  • Order and delivery schedules:  Order by Saturday, Monday and Tuesday and we will deliver on Wednesday to Friday, if the items are available we can deliver earlier than Wednesday. However you can place your order daily 24/7 especially if you are a subscriber.
  • Minimum order is P3, 000.00 for both individual and group-buy though we encourage people to group buy so we can be flexible with the minimum order.  However there are items that have no min order.
  • Why we encourage people to group buy? Simply because an individual doesn’t make as much savings or impact as a community. As we are low carbon food distribution system we can reduce carbon emission together if by the same amount of fuel in transporting these items we deliver to as many people in one location each time! The savings we don’t keep but is passed on to you as discount according to volume/frequency of orders each community makes!
  • Low carbon food distribution system vs. traditional supermarket food shopping. Did you know that if you buy produce in a supermarket you’ll find that transportation is most of the cost? Make it low impact by buying local and collaboratively, eating seasonal, and supporting ethical shops that brings you produce sourced from poor farmers especially women, and enables you to make the right choices. TheVillageGreenShop challenges systems and deeply entrenched habits to rethink our food shopping and eating choices and habits.
  • All produce in this food list are all organic produce sourced directly and ethically – we pay moral price from women farmers, youth-farmers not in education and employment but trained in farming, smallholder farmers, farmers coop and community supported farms  so they can invest in education, health, livelihood, and improve their prospects for the future. We are committed and passionate food social enterprise.
  • Why we exist? We are both a food social enterprise and a campaign platform. Please read What we tackle at https://thevillagegreenshop.wordpress.com/what-we-tackle/
  • We will bring you a much extensive list of food items as we go along so we will keep you updated. Items to watch out for: coffee, stevia sugar, coco sugar, mint vaporub, smoked milkfish (bangus), anchovies, chutneys, jams and preserves.

If I whet your appetite to shift to real and living foods, and our social ethos appeal to you, simply contact us at the details below to TRY FIRST or LIKE TO SUBSCRIBE on a WEEKLY BASIS. If we don’t have what you like, will you please us know? Cheers!
