Web Chef Review: Ontario Turnips at Harvest Barn Country Markets

Have a look at this gorgeous, huge, Ontario Turnip from Harvest Barn Country Markets that I picked up from their market in Niagara-on-the-Lake. You can tell how very fresh it is because the coating is unmarred, the stem area is bright yellow, as well as the turnip tip, and the smell is sweet and appealing.

Web Chef Review: Ontario Turban Squash at Harvest Barn Country Markets

I believe this irregular shaped squash is the most beautiful of all the squash family – Ontario Turban Squash is available at Harvest Barn Country Markets. This squash usually reaches an optimum size of about 6 pounds and its size depends on the growth near the large knobs adjacent to the stem. This gorgeous specimen of a turban squash, drenched in fantastic, earthy colors, will not likely be as flavorful as others of the squash...

Web Chef Review: Ontario Sunchokes at Harvest Barn Country Markets

I picked up some of these unique, Ontario Sunchokes at Harvest Barn Country Markets in Niagara-on-the-Lake. These strange tubers are called sunchokes, earth apples, sunroots, or Jerusalem artichokes are most often grown organically by small farmers. The sunchokes resemble ginger root but, they are nothing the same. They can be grown throughout Canada and most of the United States. They were originally grown and cultivated by our...

Web Chef Review: Ontario Sugar Pumpkins at Harvest Barn Country Markets

These sweet, little Ontario Sugar Pumpkins that came from Harvest Barn Country Markets are gorgeous specimens, plus can create a number of tasty Holiday dishes. Perfect for making pumpkin pies and pumpkin puree, because the flesh is more dense, is sweeter, the flavor is more intense and the flesh contains less water than larger, Halloween-type, jack-o-lantern pumpkins. Also, these pumpkins are much easier to handle & break down...

Web Chef Review: Ontario Romanesco Broccoflower at Harvest Barn Country Markets

This is an Ontario Romanesco Broccoflower from Harvest Barn Country Markets, which is an amazing vegetable. What on earth is broccoflower? It is a hybrid cross, between broccoli and cauliflower, but what a truly beautiful plant it is. A lovely green cup of leaves, that hold the lemony green pyramid-like vegetable head or curd, in the center, which is made up of bumpy, little florets in a fractal pattern. It is organized much like the...
