Have you looked at this veggie and wondered, “What the heck am I supposed to do with this?”
You’re not alone!

Kohlrabi is a hidden treasure among veggies. Many of our customers actively seek out our kohlrabi for its taste, versatility and nutrition (it’s a brassica like kale and cabbage).

Once you know how to crack it open, all the goodness will be within your reach. (Added bonus, it’s kid friendly!)

First, you chop off the greens. You can use the stems and leaves in a stirfry (awesome with garlic and crushed red pepper). You could also steam, saute or use as braising greens - just like you would use kale.

Then slice off a thin bit on the bottom so you can keep the kohlrabi steady.Then peel the bulb with a veggie peeler to get just past the fibrous outer layer. Next, quarter it lengthwise and remove the core.

Now you can grate it, cut it into matchsticks or cubes, depending on what you plan to cook.

Because kohlrabi is so versatile, there are tons of kohlrabi recipes out there. You can roast it, bake it, boil it, steam it, fry it, eat it raw.

Use it as you would use jicama. Throw it into a fruit salad. Cook it in a soup or a hash like you would a potato. Eat it raw with lemon and salt. Make kohlrabi fries with the matchsticks.

We’re sure if you give kohlrabi a try, you’ll enjoy it. You might even start asking us when kohlrabi's will be coming into season next year.

Let us know what you do with your kohlrabi.

Blackberries are one of Farmer Joe’s favorite items on the farm these days.

Our blackberries are producing really well. While strawberries are the sweet treat, blackberries are sweet and tart - great for those who like a little less sweet.

Joe likes his blackberries in salads (green or fruit), with yogurt or all by themselves, of course. They are also great for baking into scones, as well as making sauces, dressings and jams.

They are also fun to grow because they grow on canes that require less care than strawberries and that produce year after year. They must be pruned back after the year is done, then trellised for growing in early spring and pruned again to prevent overgrowth and facilitate injury-free harvest (they’re very thorny!).

To learn more about Farmer Joe’s favorites and what the farm has to offer, sign up for our newsletter through the link in our bio.

Do you feel bad when you throw food away?

Maybe it’s time to take our KIRBY PICKLE CHALLENGE and explore the world of pickles! #JROrganicsKirbyPickleChallenge

It’s easy once you know how.

When you pickle your produce, you are both processing for longer storage, and tapping into the health benefits of eating fermented foods. (Eating fermented foods improves the gut’s microbiome and leads to overall better health and immune response.)

Start exploring by making a batch of the basic brine below. Then use the list below to decide what to place into jars with each veggie (play with portions!). Lastly, pour the brine into the jar to cover the contents, close and place in the fridge.

Basic Pickling Brine
Perfect for 3 pints of Kirby pickles

Ingredients:
-½ cup rice vinegar
-1 tablespoon of white wine vinegar
-1½ cups hot water
-5 tablespoons sugar
-1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon kosher salt
-½ cup chopped dill
-3 pounds of Kirby cucumbers cut into ¼ inch-thick slices.

Instructions:
-Put the first five ingredients into a big pot and stir until the sugar and salt have dissolved.
-Place the sliced cucumbers into pint jars. Pour the brine in until the jar is full and the cucumbers are completely covered. Screw on the cap. After 24 hours, start checking their taste and texture to see if they are ready. They are ready when they are to your liking.
-You can keep these refrigerated for up to 2 months!

NOTES:
-Radishes or spring onions - cut into thin slices and pickled with the basic brine above.

-Beets - cleaned, peeled and sliced potato-chip thin, layered with Thyme sprigs

-Carrots - cut into sticks arranged with smashed garlic, dried chile, thyme sprigs, and cilantro in between.

-Turnips - cut into quarters or wedges and arranged with smashed garlic cloves, citrus zest, black peppercorns.

Getting the most out of your strawberries…

Strawberries this time of year get so sweet and high in sugar (low glycemic) that they practically melt!

This means you have to get them packed dry between layers of paper towel in an airtight container as soon as possible.

Either that, or you can freeze them and use them in your smoothies or drinks.

Why not serve them up as ice cubes with some lemon water and mint? Or in your champagne?

What’s your favorite way to use JR’s strawberries?

Organic doesn’t simply mean great taste and flavor (which kids clearly love).

Organic also means that this little girl can be out in the field and be safe.

You can be certain that our fields, crops and harvests are all free of pesticides and herbicides.

We have been 3rd-party certified organic since 1986 by CCOF.

In other words, we are a trustable source, and you don’t even have to take our word on it; CCOF and the USDA vouch for us.

We are a family-owned, multi-generational farm dedicated to safe clean food.

Come down to the market or visit our website to see what we’re all about.

Want to have organic strawberry jam throughout the year?

Why not make some?

Our strawberry flats are currently at a reduced price because they are plentiful. Get your strawberries and make yourself and your friends some jam.

The most important ingredient in a strawberry jam is the yummy ripe organic strawberries.

Here’s the recipe for sugar-free strawberry jam adapted from sugarfreelondoner.com

INGREDIENTS
- 14 oz (about 2 cups) strawberries, diced
-2 tbsp water
-1 tsp chia seeds ground (to help the jam set)
-1 tsp lemon juice optional (as a preservative)
- Sweetener to taste (not with our berries!)

INSTRUCTIONS
-Chop the strawberries and place them in a saucepan together with the water.
-Bring to the boil (lid on), then turn down the heat medium and let it bubble away for 15 minutes. Only add the lemon juice if you want to store the jam for longer than 1 week - it prevents the growth of bacteria.
-Mash the strawberries with a potato masher (or with a fork), then continue to cook on low-medium for another 30 minutes until reduced by half. You want it to bubble peacefully. Bubbles will become smaller as the liquid evaporates. Stir regularly with a spatula to prevent the jam from burning. Towards the end of cooking, stir constantly.
-Taste. If necessary, sweeten with preferred sweetener (we don’t think you’ll need itl.
-Add the ground chia seeds and stir. Cool and fill into a sterilized jar. Store in the fridge.
-Optional - after transferring the cooked jam to sterile jars, screw on the lids, and submerge in boiling water for 10 minutes to process. This will increase unopened room temperature shelf life to up to a year.

Give it a try and let us know how it goes!

Ready for peppers?

Though it’s early in the year, our pepper plants are beginning to produce.

We have shish*to, purple bell peppers, banana peppers and jalapeños.

The supply is limited at the moment - another reason to come out to the market early this week.

Peppers are on the EWG’s dirty dozen list, so be sure to buy them organic.

See you pepper lovers at the market!

Calling all tomato lovers!!

Brace yourself for a blast of flavor. Our specialty heirloom tomatoes will be at all markets this weekend. They sold out quickly last week, so come out early to make sure you get yours.

Berries will also be available, and they have been getting rave reviews from our customers and members this year. Come and check out our specials on blueberries, blackberries, and strawberries.

And, of course, we will have a large selection of summer squashes, root vegetables and leafy greens.

Come down to our stands to see how colorful everything is and how good it smells and tastes.

As always, we grow everything we sell at the market, and it is all 100% certified organic!

See you at the market!!

🌼Marigolds🌼 Organically grown in San Diego by J R Organics CSA Farm are available in bunches at your local Jimbo’s! ❔DID YOU KNOW? 🌼Originally called Mary’s Gold, these were named after the Virgin Mary, and in Mexico known as cempaichitl (flower of the dead). Marigolds are essential in the celebration of Dia de los Mu***os 🌼Marigolds are native to North and South America. Portuguese sailors discovered these flowers in Brazil more than four centuries ago and spread them throughout the world. 🌼Marigolds contain a natural pest repellant averting mosquitos and other insects. 🌼The actual floral scent doesn’t come from its flowers! Instead, comes from the stems and leaves. If you don’t want the smell, remove the leaves. . #marigolds #floralfriday #organicflowers #diadelosmuertos #dayofthedead #freshflowers #sandiegoflowers #jimbos
Have you gotten your pepper fix at the Oceanside Morning Farmers Market yet? Don’t miss out on J R Organics CSA Farm selection of peppers, great to eat in the heat of summer. Peppers are consistently on the EWG’s dirty dozen list, so it’s especially important to source them organically. Kids are crazy about their mini sweet bell peppers. They are easy to snack on as the seed pocket inside is exceptionally small. They are easy to chop and have lots of flesh. You can bite right into them. They have no heat, lots of crunch and LOTS of flavor. Find them on #marketday at MainStreet Oceanside’s certified Farmers Market Thursday from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. on Pier View Way from Ditmar Street to Tremont Street across North Coast Highway.

Peil De Sapo is back for a very short period, so don't miss out. 🐸🎅 This ovoid-shaped melon, also known as Frog Skin Melon or Santa Claus Melon, has a rough and tumble thick green outer rind resembling a toad. The inside is a beautiful bright white, juicy white flesh that tastes somewhere between a honeydew and a pear. It can last on the counter for weeks! Treat yourself to a quality Prosciutto ham, slice your Peil De Sapo, and either wrap or top with the prosciutto. Enjoy with an ice-cold glass of rose, and thank us later.

We are proud to source our organic strawberries locally from J R Organics CSA Farm. Located just up the road in North County, J.R. Organics is a fourth generation family farm that is California Certified Organic Farmers (CCOF) certified. All of their produce is grown in the purest way possible...including the 10,000 pounds of strawberries that are being added to our strawberry brews this season! We believe every beer should tell a story. As we celebrate our fifth year in partnership with J.R. Organics, we took our team to the farm to taste the strawberries, check out the fields where they were grown, and get to know the family that grew them. From our brewers to our beertenders, everyone had the opportunity for a hands-on experience to connect with the ingredients. Because of this experience, we can convey the rich story behind the beer—the organic farm, the multi-generational family, the sweetest San Diego strawberries—and enrich your experience when you taste it in your glass.
