Cooking in the CLG: Roasted Potatoes

One of the highlights of this week's Learning Garden program were the delicious potatoes (harvested right here at WFCF) that we roasted to perfection! We tried Russets and Purple Vikings from the container garden and All Blue potatoes from the CLG. Here is a simple recipe for roasted potatoes you can try at home.

Dede's Roasted Potatoes
  • Potatoes
  • Olive Oil
  • Salt
  • Garlic Powder
  • Any other spices or herbs you'd like to try

How to Make Them:

Wash the potatoes and cut them into 1/4 inch slices. Toss them in a bowl with olive oil (just enough to lightly coat the slices), then sprinkle with salt and garlic powder. Place the slices on a baking sheet or in a roasting pan (slices can overlap); cook them for about 45 min at 350 degrees F. Enjoy!

Why hello there!

While our potatoes were roasting, we got to spend some time with the chickens and also harvest more tomatoes. With these chilly fall days and nights, we are definitely nearing the end of our tomato crop, but we still managed to find a few ripe ones out there!

Next week, we'll be ready to finish prepping a garden bed so that we can get our garlic planted before the snow flies!
