“Glee-tritious”-Finding great joy cooking from winter greens

It’s true, I made that word up. Finding a word to communicate all the delicate nuances wrapped up into entering a winter garden is no easy task. The happiness of picking something in deep winter, taking it into the kitchen and cooking it up is very special, not to mention nutritious.
 After recycling a temporary carport and turning it into a hoop house for winter growing I am able to experience this great joy.
glee : 
great delight;  delight, pleasure, happiness, joy, gladness, elation, euphoria;

Today I am making a farm to table morning duck egg scramble with sauteed greens. After the simple pleasure of entering the hoop house, and being greeted by the three peking ducks that have taken up residence in one corner, I selected pak choy, kale, swiss chard and a green onion. I also grabbed a few sprigs of fresh herbs and some duck eggs.

The recipe:
  • Two fresh duck eggs
  • 1/2 cup cream
  • salt & pepper to season
  • Fresh greens of your choice
  • Cheese of your choice
  • Olive oil
  • Butter
After cleaning the greens, rough chop then saute in olive oil until tender. Season.
Remove from heat. Whisk up the eggs and cream. Add to a hot pan with butter and cook slowly as not to dry out the eggs. Sprinkle with cheese and season. Enjoy.
