On November 3rd a group of us got together to turn approximately 85 or more pounds of veggies into nourishing fermented sauerkraut. We made four different kinds using heirloom and kaitlin cabbage, red cabbage, carrots, beets, ginger, onion, garlic, black radish and dill. Locally grown veggies so we all knew how fresh and delicious they all were. There are so many recipes you can source on the internet but we just started with our family's favorite ingredients and added a few new ingredients upon request to create a new recipe. This was a day to share and learn from each other, knowing we had a lot of veggies to chop and get in the crocks a few hours. Mission accomplished, and we all will be stocking our refrigerators to enjoy the harvest long into the winter months. Everyone picked a station that suited them. We will bottle our work shortly after Thanksgiving.
First is Savory Kraut, Variation to the Red Zinger (addition of carrots) Red Zinger, KC, and Captain's Kraut. We have extra quarts not spoken for so if you are looking for some tasty sauerkraut order soon.

Happy Eating, from our table to yours!
We hope you enjoyed the Brie and Camembert Diamond S had available last week. If you would like more or are still needing to try some get in touch with Kris to place an order. Here is a look at the cheesy dessert we tried this weekend. It was brie, topped with delicious fresh raspberries from Lloyd Craft Farms, baked inside an egg washed crescent roll. Brie is delicious paired with many fruits and wine.
This week we are excited to bring back Halloumi – here is some information on halloumi since not too many of us have heard of this type of cheese.
It's hard to remember a time when halloumi wasn’t a mainstay of British dinner tables – As Cyprus edges towards giving its national cheese protected status, there's no better time to pick up a pack and try a new way with halloumi.
It’s not authentic, because in Cyprus, halloumi is strictly made of goat’s or sheep’s milk, but at Diamond S Delights this week we have our delicious Brown Swiss and Jersey A2 milk made into Halloumi with the addition of fresh mint. This gives it a unique character and looks beautiful when sliced across the grain to expose the mint leaves sandwiched within the fold of the cheese. Grill or pan-fry halloumi and serve with other Mediterranean-style foods for a special meal or snack. Or try one of the recipes we’ve found that sound pretty darn good.
Not only are we bringing back halloumi, but marinated feta as well! The cheese is aged a week in the fridge, then marinated in extra virgin organic olive oil. Spices used are crushed garlic, rosemary, basil, black pepper and organic tomatoes from Lloyd Craft Farms are added to the mix.

The week we have all been waiting for! The aging process is complete. The Swiss and Brie are ready! Let us know if you’d like to take any of these delights home! I’ve sampled the Swiss and it is as delicious as ever and I can’t wait to taste test the brie. Also available this week will be smoothies. They will be flavored with fresh organic fruit, flavors to be determined!
It was a busy week, from putting the finishing touches on the swiss and brie to making sauerkraut and picking apples in the orchard! Fall is coming and we are looking forward to the cooler temperatures! I wanted to share with you all the Caprese Salad that Mae Smith made over the weekend using Diamond S mozzarella cheese! If you weren’t hungry before, I bet you are now! It looks amazing!
We also wanted to let you all know that there will be special order organic sourdough bread at Diamond S on Mondays and at Lloyd Craft Farms on Thursdays. Get your order in if you'd like to enjoy some of this great local bread! Some might wonder what the jars are behind the bread?! That is what used to be 20 pounds of heirloom tomatoes from Lloyd Craft Farms! The tomatoes have obviously been dried. These will be used to make our marinated feta. A new batch of that will be ready in a week!
And I’ll leave you with this, a picture of Lizzy’s bull calf. Isn’t he cute?!
Thank you for your continued interest in Diamond S Delights!

My name is Blaise Allen and I will also be helping Emma and Kris keep the blog updated and continue to show you new and exciting Diamond S Delights every week. I am from Meeteetse, Wyoming and love everything that has to do with the outdoors (hunting, fishing, camping, riding etc.).
Besides spending time outdoors I also love to cook. I will occasionally be showing you some of the meals I cook using delicious Diamond S Delight products. Tonight I cooked Lasagna using farm fresh mozzarella, ricotta, and cottage cheese. Diamond S Ranch grass fed beef and homemade spaghetti sauce was also thrown in the mix!
Along with the lasagna was a fresh garden salad with romaine lettuce, cherry tomatoes and diced radishes.
After dinner I decided to try Kris' recipe that is similar to whipped cream. Fromage Frais is mixed with Creme Fraiche and a little bit of sugar topped over Diamond S organic lemon flavored yogurt and freshly picked apples. The meal was delicious!
