What’s Red Amish Deer Tongue Lettuce? by kristin

You know vegetables are coming into their own when famed auction house Southeby’s decides to put some rare heirloom varieties on the block. Does this mean the world is waking up to the power and beauty of a vegetarian/vegan/raw lifestyle? The article, from The Wall Street Journal, no less, touts the benefits of organic vegetables, and organic farming. Not to give away too much, but I loved some of the names of these pedigreed vegetables:

Black sea man tomatoes

Black Sea Man Tomatoes

Black Sea Man Tomatoes, Lady Godiva Squash, and the aforementioned Red Amish Deer Tongue Lettuce. One of the farms profiled sounded pretty interesting, too! Ornery Farm in the Catskills….aw, shucks…how can vegetables be ornery?

One of the great things about the Sotheby’s article, is that it can turn people on to the value of these very special heirloom varieties of vegetables. They are almost always tastier and more beautiful than their mass produced cousins. There are some great places to get heirloom seeds, including the Baker Creek Heirloom Seed Company (with a branch in nearby Petaluma)–stop for a visit of you are coming to the Chef Showcase!    A couple of places  I’ve always admired are Seeds of Change and Seed Savers Exchange, and they have the Lady Godiva squash seeds! Amish Deer Tongue LettuceAs I was doing my research for this blog, I came upon a YouTube video about the Baker Creek seed company featuring none other than John Kohler, one of the finalists in our Hot Raw Chef Video Recipe Contest, and creator of the Raw Health Expo in Santa Rosa.
