Habanero Tequila 2009

Sip with ice. It's spicy and the ice makes you want to drink more to help with the heat.
Our first batch of habanero infused tequila is ready. We switched up the type of hot pepper this year and don't these things look sinister? They are white habaneros that we bought from the Union Square farmers market in the spring.
It's easy. Slice up a habanero pepper and drop it in a bottle of good tequilar. Let it sit for a coupel days and then get the band-aids out. Oh. and be careful. Wear gloves when you cut up the peppers.

How we used it: Poblano Peppers

Pepper harvest over the weekend. They're still coming which is great since it's hovering around 40 degrees outside now.
Translated into delicious vegetarian chiles rellenos for farm friends patrick, erica, and patrick's mom.

End of Season Dinner Party

A few weeks ago we invited some good friends over for an outdoor dinner. It's getting colder out and the light is fading. The dinner was a lot of fun and we can't wait for next year to do this more.

Farmer No. 2 and farm friend Mike picked figs and prepared them on the spot for a snack.
