Pumpkin is in season right now, it’s the time to translate the flavors of pumpkin into a moist cake. The autumn-yellow color that the pumpkin brings surely is an appealing natural color for our Spiced Pumpkin Cake! It’s an easy recipe which we’re sure you can do at home.

If you ask, what’s our favorite Peanut Butter creation? Our answer would have to be gado-gado. You can make this with Crunchy Peanut Butter if you like a bit more texture in your peanut sauce, or use the creamy one if you like a smooth-silky sauce to pour over your gado-gado. We found this recipe to be very handy especially for those living overseas, who can’t get their hands on a good gado-gado sauce.

Saving Seeds

Did you know how seeds are collected from edamame? During the dry season, we are saving the seeds from edamame naturally on the tree. This can only be done in the dry season, because too much rain and humidity will make the edamame to be rotten instead of producing seeds.

First of all we must decide which edamame plant we want to take the seeds from. Usually it would be the most healthy and productive among the lot because we want to pick the best ones for our next season. It takes about one month for the plant to dry out and produce seeds. When the edamame has turned yellow and dried out, it’s the time for us to harvest the seeds.

Cheese-flavored Mixed Chips

Roots are one of our main commodities at Blueboots Farm. We have been developing yummy flavors for the chips, this one is our “Cheese” varieties, which was built up from various natural seasonings. A great snack to accompany your boredom or gathering with friends.

Liwetan at Blueboots Farm

Remember when we got some school kids visiting Blueboots Farm for their school outing? That time, we prepared Blueboots Farm liwetan for our lunch. It was one of the most fun lunches we have ever had at the farm. Almost everything was made from the farm’s produce, including the fresh lalapan, which you can see in the photo. The roots were even still there!

Perhaps it’s time again to do another round of liwetan at Blueboots Farm? Anyone keen to join us? 🙂
