Indian Spiced Apple Coleslaw

Funny I alway enjoy coleslaw but hardly make it at home. Its a blank canvas really, allowing a variety of spices or fresh herbs to be added to impart different flavors. This one uses Indian spices and Greek yogurt two things we always have on hand. 


  • 1/4 of a red cabbage finely chopped
  • 4 small apples, a mix of gala and granny smith thinly sliced
  • one cup of Greek yogurt 
  • 1/4 teaspoon of cumin powder, salt and pepper to taste, 1/4 teaspoon coriander powder 
  • 1 tablespoon of honey 
  • a pinch of chili powder 
  • a handful of sliced grapes

  1. slice the vegetables 
  2. mix the spices with the greek yogurt and combine 
  3. it's that easy :) 

The farm is slowly progressing and I have even attended a local farmers market meeting. I am going to have a wee open house this week where folks can come pick their own arugula, bok choi, salad and swiss chard. Here's the link if your local to Yadkin County NC.

I harvested my first book choi last week, so exciting!

Season One - Ladybird Farm

I thought I would do a little blog post, with a update on ladybird farm , we bought a property in Yadkin county NC a few months ago and plan over the coming years to slowly grow vegetables to sell. We paid a couple of guys one a farmer to build raised beds, in a closed area to protect from hungry wildlife and add a compost bin and rain barrels, about a fortnight ago we started planting we haven't yet harvested but are excited to share the journey as we go.
