There is nothing better than the sweet smell of a carrot that is just harvested from the dirt. Today we harvested a lot of carrots and two different kinds of cabbage for market tomorrow! Luke likes to ferment the cabbage and radishes so we can enjoy these fermented foods all winter long. If you are interested in learning how to lacto-ferment vegetables we are hosting a workshop at the farm November 12th. Check out our "shop" tab on our website and read more about it. And as always if you have any questions just let us know

Sweet Potato, Daikon Radish and Bok Choy Fritters
These fritters are quick and not hard to make. Fritters are a nice way to use some vegetables you may not know what to do with. Daikon radishes have a really nice mild flavor and great texture that pairs well with the sweetness of a sweet potato. I used bok choy in this recipe but you could use any cooking green in its place. I hope you all enjoy!
1 lrg. sweet potato (about 2 cups)
2 small (or 1 large) daikon radish, peeled
1 cup bok choy finely chopped
1/2 cup onion finely chopped
2 garlic cloves
1/4 cup grated cheese
1/2 cup flour ( may need a little more if mixture doesn't hold together)
salt and pepper to tase
1. Grate sweet potato and radish, mix with chopped onion, bok choy, and garlic
2. Add two eggs, cheese, flour, salt and pepper. Mix together. You should be able to form mixture into a ball and it will hold its shape, add more flour if needed.
3. Heat up pan to medium/ low and add enough oil to coat bottom of pan. I used coconut oil but you could use any other oil or butter.
4. Make patty with fritter batter about the size of a hockey puck and a 1/4 inch thick. (If to thick the outside will burn and the inside will not cook.)
5. Let each side cook for about two minuets or so until browned and crispy. When done set on plate lined with paper towel to cool.
*will make about 8-10 fritters depending on size.
**I made a mayo dill sauce to go with my fritters. I mixed 1/2 cup mayo with 2 tbps. apple cider vinegar, 2 tsp. dill and salt/pepper to taste! You could also use sour cream instead of mayo
