Summer Potluck!

The Burroughs Family would like to invite you to a Summer Potluck on the farm (east of Ballico) June 21.  We will eat starting at 6 pm but fill free to come as early as 4:30 depending on the heat.  One of our organically raised pastured turkeys will be slow roasted and the main attraction.  Depending on how many rsvp we may do some of our pastured pork ham!  We ask you to bring a dish you would like to share that has ingredients from within a 150 mile radius.  Cost is $5/person and kids under 12 are free.  We will provide basic drinks but if you want something special feel free to bring.  We look forward to a relaxing evening sharing a meal and special recipes.  Fill free to invite friends.  To rsvp please email [email protected] by June 17.  Location and directions will be provided then.

Looking forward to it!!

Delicious Gluten Free Almonds Cookies

Gluten Free Almond Cookies

Hey! This is Benina :) I wanted to share this recipe we came up with for gluten free almond cookies.  My daughter Mariana (aged 3) really wants to help in the kitchen!  She loves “washing dishes” and putting groceries away and just being in the kitchen with me.  We have made different cookie recipes in the past but I wanted to come up with something that was nutrient dense and used our products :)  We use our organic almonds (produced locally in California) in lots of dishes but especially love using them to makes crusts for pies and cheesecakes.  Building upon that recipe we came up with this:

Starting with these ingredients:

Burroughs Family Farms Organic Raw Almonds

Burroughs Family Farms Organic Pastured Eggs

Organic Valley Butter

Organic Almond Extract

Pamelas Baking & Pancake Mix

Organic Sugar or Honey or Stevia

Then add 1/4 cup of Pamela’s Baking & Pancake Mix. Mix until incorporated.  Add the 1/2 stick of butter and mix until its worked in.  This is where your helper can “help” by turning machine on and off…

Add the rest of the ingredients

1/4 cup of sugar or honey

1 egg

1 tsp almond extract (add more if you like that flavor)

Process until it is all combined.  You can leave it like this or add 1/4 cup of raisins or chocolate chips.

We use a small cookie scoop and use a silpat mat.  This should make 1 dozen cookies.  We scoop them out and then add a whole almond to the top and press it in a little bit.  They should look like this

After they are done baking at 350 degrees for 15 minutes they should look like this
