Merry Christmas

We’d like to wish you a very Merry Christmas! Hopefully this Christmas will bring peace to all of us.

Looking Back

This photo was taken back in early 2016. We can’t believe how far we have grown since then (literally!). Have you got any hopes for Blueboots Farm in the upcoming year? Perhaps more workshops or events? Keep in mind that we will be running more programs in 2018, including Corporate Events. Please feel free to contact Blueboots Farm by email to samantha@blueboots.farm if your company is keen to do events at the farm. While we already have a set of program, we are always open to cater your needs.

Basil for Pesto

Basil is a versatile herb to work with. They are not too challenging to grow yet basil can be used in so many dishes if not drinks. Mix basil with roasted pine nuts, olive oil and sea salt to turn it into homemade basil pesto. Keep it in a sterilized jar so you can use it anytime you have a surprise guest. Use it for pasta to create a yummy dish, which everyone will love. That’s when humble fresh herbs can uplift your homemade dishes.

Feels Like Christmas

Can you believe that it’s time of the year again when we get to savor the Christmas spices? Enjoy this Speculaas recipe made with Indonesian spices that actually are the taste of Christmas.

Ingredients
3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
3/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground white pepper
Pinch of ground cloves
1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, softened

  1. Mix together flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, cardamom, nutmeg, white pepper, and cloves in a large bowl.
  2. Cream butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Mix together half of the flour mixture. Add water, then remaining flour mixture. Divide into 3 balls and flatten into 2cm, wrap in cling wrap and keep in refrigerator.
  3. Dust surface with confectioners’ sugar. Roll out dough to 5mm thickness and cut the shape out with your favourite holiday cookie cutter. We are using our tree cutter. Continue until all dough is cut and keep in refrigerator for 1 hour.

The Things You Never Expect from Peanut Butter

Peanut butter (especially ours ;)) is very versatile to be used in cooking, baking or just on its own. You would never expect these things from Blueboots Farm Peanut Butter:

  • They are great as Gado-gado dressing especially if you don’t have the time to make dressing from scratch! Try our Gado-gado recipe here,you will fall in love with it.
  • In one of our seasonal products, we combined our original Peanut Butter with honey and chia. Did you get to taste this limited flavor? What did you think?
  • There are only four ingredients used in Blueboots Farm Peanut Butter, which are: Blueboots Farm roasted peanuts, coconut oil, organic coconut sugar and Kusamba sea salt. So simple, that’s why it’s so good for you.
