Omaha World-Herald features grass to you

Thanks again to Nichole at the Omaha World Herald for the excellent article about wheatgrass. In case the link breaks here is the text:

Farmers Market Find

published Wednesday June 9, 2010

WHAT IS IT?

The young, slender green grass blades of the common wheat plant, which yield an earthy, deep-green juice (pictured). At juice bars or health food stores, it’s often touted for its supply of chlorophyll, amino acids, minerals, vitamins and enzymes. Though some wheatgrass health claims have yet to be scientifically substantiated, the juice is definitely nutrient-packed: It contains about as much protein and iron as equal amounts of spinach, and more vitamin B12. If you’ve tried it before and thought “blech,” you may want to try again. The juice shown here, from very young wheatgrass, has a sweet, almost honeyed, finish.

SPOTTED AT

The Grass To You stand at the Benson Farmers Market on Saturday. Grower Justin Graham said he grows the grass in Dundee, enriching the soil with an organic ingredient derived from volcanic ash. It costs $2 per juice shot or $15 for an 11-by-21-inch tray (about 20 shots worth) of still growing and ready-to-cut grass delivered to your home. Grass To You, which has stands at the Benson market on Saturdays and the Florence Mill market on Sundays, also sells hand-cranked juicers.

HOW TO USE

Pass it through a manual or electric juicer and drink or freeze within 24 hours for best flavor, nutrients and freshness. Graham said he juices a tray, freezes the juice in ice cube trays and thaws the cubes as needed.

RECIPE IDEAS

Add to other juices or to smoothies for extra nutrition. Swirl into a pureed carrot soup as a green garnish. Fold into an oil-and-vinegar or honey-mustard dressing for an unusual earthy-sweet taste and green color.

ALSO SPOTTED AT THE BENSON AND AKSARBEN MARKETS

New: Bing cherries, tiny strawberries, pickle-sized cucumbers, baby red and white potatoes, zucchini and garlic scapes.

Ongoing: Chinese spinach, baby bok choy, bitter and salad greens, green garlic, radishes, turnips, green onions, greenhouse tomatoes, rhubarb, fresh herbs, eggs and meat from pastured chickens, grass-finished beef, elk sausage, bison burgers, local cheese and honey.
