Through a local email group I'd joined, I got invited to pick some free veggies from a gentleman who had hurt his knee and wouldn't be able to harvest the stuff he'd planted. Perhaps you remember me mentioning it this post. Here's my portion of the bounty we picked:
|Turnips, turnip greens, kale, sweet potatoes, cabbage, leeks and arugula|
A couple weeks before that I had a friend offer me some free organic pears
|I bought the bushel of apples for $13.50 but the pears were free!|
We had pear pancakes, pear cornbread, pear fruit crisp and pear bread! All of the recipes I got from my Better Homes and Gardens cookbook. I substitute 1/4 cup of pureed fruit for every egg. Then I cut the sugar and oil in half. This is something I generally do with all baked goods recipes to make them healthier and more moist.
Anyone else get some great fall deals or freebies?
