Products: Satsuma mandarins, Apples, Fuyu and Hachiya Persimmons, Grapefruit, Oranges, and Tangelos.
About Us: We are a small family run farm located in the Sierra Foothills where we are located on the Mandarin Trail. Our Satsuma mandarins are not certified organic, however we do not use chemical sprays in our orchard. We use natural pest control when necessary and good old fashioned chicken fertilizer on our trees. We also grow persimmons, both Fuyu and Hachiya varieties, as well as apples, grapefruit, oranges, and a limited number of tangelos.
Recipe by Courtney McDonald
-2 Tbsp. olive oil
-6 pork loin chops
-2 Tbsp unsalted butter
-8 fresh thyme sprigs
-3 tart green apples, peeled, cored and sliced ¼ inch thick
-2 Tbsp honey
-sat and pepper, to taste
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Heat a large cast-iron pan over medium-high heat. Add the olive oil. Season the pork chops to taste with salt and pepper and add to the pan (in batches if they won’t all fit together). Avoid crowding the pan or the pork chops will steam. Cook the chops until well-caramelized on both sides and cooked just under your liking. Remove chops from the pan and set aside to rest.
Wipe excess oil from pan and add the butter, thyme, apples and honey. The apples will start to release moisture and absorb any browned bits left from the pork chops. Cook this mixture, stirring occasionally, until apples begin to soften – about 5 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Once apples are soft, place the cooked chops back into the pan, on top of the apple mixture. Put the whole pan in the oven to heat through – about 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and serve immediately.
Recipe by Courtney McDonald
-3 Tbsp. olive oil
-2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
-1 bunch green onion
or ½ red onion, thinly sliced
-1 Tbsp minced fresh ginger
-1 Tbsp minced fresh turmeric,or ½ tsp dried turmeric (optional)
-1 head green or Savoy cabbage,thinly sliced
-2 green apples, thinly sliced
-4 mandarins, segmented
-salt and pepper, to taste
In a large skillet or wok, heat the olive oil. Add the garlic, onion, ginger and turmeric, if using. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally until onion is soft and fragrant, about 5 minutes. Increase the heat to high and add the sliced cabbage and apple, season to taste with salt and pepper. Cook, tossing or stirring, until cabbage has softened slightly – another 4-5 minutes. Remove from heat, adjust seasoning if necessary, and gently toss in the mandarin segments. Serve immediately.
