Bunny Luv Product Review and Country Chowder Recipe
Have you ever had trouble finding a certain brand of produce at your local store? I went in search of Bunny Luv organic carrot products by Grimmway Farms. I didn't think I was going to find them after my initial disappointment in the local grocery store.
Grimmway farms produces a number or organic products including a full selection of packaged carrots. Grimmway is a California-based company that is dedicated to sustainable farming and high quality, non GMO food. They work hard to promote economically friendly farming and business practices. I can get behind a company like that.
Of all the places I looked for Bunny Luv carrots, I never thought to look at the commissary. The commissary at our local military post recently had an entire remodel which has resulted in a larger selection of produce. I happened to find the entire selection of Bunny Luv products there.
There have been several more places where I have found their products, including the Hyvee near us.
I was pleased to find that the price of their organic baby carrots and cello-packs of whole carrots are about the same price as buying the non-organic brands. There was only a 20 cent difference between the two. Carrots are not terribly expensive to begin with, but it is nice to know that I can feed my family organic produce without breaking the bank.
The flavor and quality of the carrots were excellent as well. The baby carrots were sweet and juicy. They made a great snack and my kids gobbled them up.
My favorite way to eat carrots is in a nice warm soup. Potatoes and carrots go nicely together- they both have a hearty yet sweet taste when cooked to perfection.
Here is my recipe for Country Chowder, in which carrots play a star role:
- Organic Pickling Spice
- Grey Sea Salt
- Filtered Water
- Fresh Asparagus Spears
- Prepare the asparagus spears: Rinse and pat dry. Cut off the woody ends. You may need to cut them down more so that they will fit in the jars.
- Prepare the salt brine by mixing 2 TBSP of salt per 4 cups of water. Stir until dissolved.
- Assemble the jars: Pour 1/2 TBSP of pickling spice in the bottom of each jar. Place asparagus in jars.
- Pour the salt brine into the jars, making sure to submerse the asparagus as much as possible. Leave about 1/2 inch of space at the top of the jar.
- Place the seal on and screw the lid on securely. Don't make it too tight or the seal could warp.
- Place in a dark, dry cupboard for at least 4 days. DO NOT REFRIGERATE! Your asparagus will begin to bubble slightly and may smell slightly tangy. This is good. After 4 days you can start to taste it. When it reaches the tanginess you like, place the jar(s) in the fridge. The flavor will continue to develop for up to a month.
