For turnips

  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 pounds medium turnips (not Japanese), peeled and cut into 1-inch-thick wedges
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice


For bread crumbs

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 cup fine fresh bread crumbs from a baguette
  • 1 tablespoon poppy seeds
  • 1 tablespoon chopped flat-leaf parsley
  • Braise turnips:
    Melt butter in a 12-inch heavy skillet over medium heat, then add turnips, water, lemon juice, and 1/2 teaspoon salt and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer, covered, 30 minutes. Increase heat to medium and stir turnips, then briskly simmer, uncovered, until all of liquid has evaporated and turnips are glazed and just tender, 20 to 35 minutes (they should be cooked through but still retain their shape).
  • Make bread crumbs while turnips cook:
    Heat oil in a large heavy skillet over medium heat until it shimmers, then cook garlic, stirring, until pale golden, about 1 minute. Add bread crumbs and poppy seeds and cook, stirring frequently, until golden, 4 to 5 minutes. Stir in parsley and salt to taste. Just before serving, sprinkle bread crumbs over turnips.

Happenings Around the Farm

Since February Michael and I have been very busy. The week of February 15-20 came and went so fast our heads were spinning. We had 100 kids born that week. We were up all hours of the night feeding kids and taking care of the does.

 

In March we kicked off the season with making Chevre. Our famous variety of cheeses are back. We have been making Chevre, Feta, Blue Cheese, Cheddar, Smoked Gouda, Prairie Cloud Reserve and Farm Cheese.

Old Windmill Dairy welcomes Angela our newest intern. She has been very helpful with taking care of the kids and tending to the blue cheese and prairie cloud reserve. Please welcome her at the Santa Fe Farmers Market

 

The blue cheese is turning out phenomenally well. It should be ready to serve in another week or two.
