Nappa Cabbage is a cool weather crop, best in the spring and fall, and its my favorite base for Farm Chi. So it’s Farm Chi season! Farm Chi includes whatever is harvesting at the farm, so this batch features:
Garlic scapes, ginger (from a friend’s farm in the fall, I store it in the freezer), nappa cabbage, scallions, bok choi, kohlrabi, carrots (not from the farm this time), turnips, kale. I also added Korean red pepper and sesame seeds.
