Farm Share Members – This week’s share will likely consist of:
Spinach, Salad Mix, Broccoli, Cooking Greens (collards or cabbage), Sweet Potatoes, Ginger, Garlic, a Root Vegetable (most likely carrots), Radishes, Green Tomatoes, and a special treat that we are really excited about: Fermented Jalapenos. (Each share this week contains one jar of these delicious, versatile preparations, known for their abundance of probiotics. Spicy but not overwhelming, these pepper slices are great on top of just about anything: tacos, burritos, stir fry, curries, lasagna, salsa, etc.)
** Next week (the Wednesday prior to Thanksgiving) is the final week of the Fall Farm Share. We hope you have loved the harvest as much as we have!
Recipe Suggestions: (cataloged on our Recipe Page)
Baby Ginger – we felt obligated to test some cookie recipes using our fresh baby ginger. This Fresh Ginger Cookie recipe got great reviews from our family and crew. Next we will try this Triple Ginger Cookie. Remember also to put this ginger in any stir fry or soup, or ginger-lemon-honey tea, or freeze it for future use of these recipes. In February we hope you think of us when you pull it out of the freezer!
Broccoli – make Stuffing (feel free to sub real milk and mushrooms for the canned soup it calls for!) or Broccoli Cheese Soup
Sweet Potatoes – the holidays loom and sweet potatoes are usually featured well, but in case you need inspiration: Sweet Potato and Sausage Breakfast Burrito
Green Tomatoes – Baked Green Tomatoes with Yummy Dip or Salsa Verde (put on those burritos listed above, and add Fermented Jalapenos to the whole affair!)
Radishes – we haven’t reminded you to roast them in a while. If you can resist putting them on top of a crisp and delicious salad, roasting them is the way to go. And – say what you want about Martha Stewart, but we love the recipes published under her name. Check out the link above – we love that it doesn’t even list quantities! Just use what you have and trust your inner chef.
Market Share CSA Members: Remember that your balance expires at the end of 2014, and we don’t harvest much at all in December (especially with the low temps of late). Plan to spend your balance by the end of November. After that, you may “order into the negatives” and settle up your balance with us after ordering. Thank you!
Choose your selection through our Online Ordering of the following harvest for pick up on Wednesday, Nov 19 (on farm, at Good Health Herbs, or at Central Montessori School in Church Hill). NOTE: This week we are offering a different bread variety than usual: Rustic White. It is a lighter bread than our usual multigrain. As always, it is made with 100% Certified Organic flour. And as you prepare for the upcoming holiday celebrations focused on gratitude for the harvest, keep in mind our preserved harvest: Salsa and Pepper Jelly make delicious appetizers, and Fermented Jalapenos add a precious zing to anything!
