Wednesday’s Farm Share will most likely include:
Kale, Salad, Hearty Greens, Turnips, Sweet Peppers, Broccoli, Radish, Garlic, and Tomatoes.
Recipe Suggestions: see these and others cataloged on our Recipe Page
Kale or Hearty Greens – This weekend we fell in love with this recipe for Hardy Greens with Lemon-Garlic Vinaigrette. The photo on the recipe page shows the leaves with the dressing simply poured over top, but we prefer to massage in the oil and juice and flavors. Put your hands in the bowl and massage those greens! If you lose a ring in the process, retrieve it from the bottom of the bowl.
Salad – We are diggin citrus-based homemade dressings right now, like this Citrus Vinaigrette recipe. This allows all 5 eaters in our family to love salads for lunch and dinner, almost every day.
Turnips – We grow a sweet variety called Hakurei, which Bon Appetit magazine says has reached “hip” status. We’ve loved them since a fellow farmer handed us one, covered with earth, in a field in Wisconsin in 2008. We love them in soups, roasts, and a simple saute. Try Chicken in a Pot with Turnips, Barley, and Carrots or Turnips with Roasted Garlic and Goat Cheese
Radish – We slice them on salad, Roast them, or dice them them into a Radish Salsa of sorts. (Even a simple variation of this salsa recipe is delicious – radish, oil, garlic, lime, and salt are wonderful together.)
Sweet Peppers – Roast them, slice them on salad, dip them in hummus, fill them with goat cheese…they are versatile and delicious.
Broccoli – Please remember that we don’t kill bugs on our broccoli plants and there are most likely small green worms hiding inside your head of broccoli. A simple salt-water soak easily takes care of the unwanted pests. This website orients you to the process very well. Our favorite way to eat broccoli is Roasted.
