Hello again everyone!
Forgive me if I haven't been around much lately. I've been pouring most of my energy into my latest book project, hoping it will be ready to 'be born' sometime next month.
The local landscape sure has changed quickly in the last couple of weeks or so. Leaves have begun to change color and the sun is getting noticeably lower in the sky. There's no denying it anymore; Autumn is now here to stay. *sigh*
I discover more empty plant beds every time I go to the garden; their offerings having turned to seeds or been harvested. At least the hardier greens are loving this cooler weather; they are absolutely thriving! As there is more kale and swiss chard than can be humanly consumed fresh, someone suggested dehydrating them. What a brilliant idea!
This is probably the easiest Recipe of the Week that I've ever posted, but I couldn't resist passing on this awesome way to make use of the overabundance of greens in your gardens. Making your own green powder is not only super easy, but is also very economical! Plus, you know for sure that it is raw!
Homemade Green Powder
Whatever greens you have on hand, washed and de-stemmed.
1. Place on mesh screens and dehydrate until completely dry.
2. Grind into a powder in a high-speed blender or food processor.
3. Store into an airtight container and keep in a cool and dark place.
And voila! Enjoy in your favorite fruit smoothies!
