Before we discuss the actual preparation of this meal, I'd like to start by saying that most of the ingredients used can be grown at home. I used as many home-made things as possible, and you can too.
This recipe took:
To fry the food in. This will most likely have to be purchased at the store, as while you can grow crops (such as corn and soybeans) that are used to make vegetable oil, you cannot actually grow the oil.
Having said that, if you discover a way of growing oil, do let me know.
You could use store-bought patties or meat.
I used two pounds of beef from our cows (slaughtered last fall) and shaped them into patties. We gave them no chemicals or medicines, and used diatomaceous earth to worm them, so the meat is very healthy. Friends of ours who normally cannot eat beef (because they are allergic to all the chemicals cattle yards pump into their cows, such as penicillin) can eat it because of this.
Mixed into the hamburger. We do grow our own onions, but they didn't do so well this year, so I used a store-bought one (shhh!).
Also mixed into the hamburger. IIRC, the pepper I used was a smallish bell pepper.
Goes into hamburger mix too. It can be grown at home, I just used some out of a jar though.
Yep, this goes into the hamburger mix also. This is rather difficult to grow, so I cheated and bought mine. Perhaps it is the climate. However, it might be worth it to plant an empty bottle and see what comes up.
I used Yukon gold potatoes. Here's a tip to save you a loooooot of disgusting grossness-if you're going to store potatoes you have grown, for goodness sakes store them in the refridgerator or another cool place, or else they will rot and spawn maggots.
