In Your Share (Dec 10th edition)

You can download the Recipe Packet for this week’s share HERE. It includes some great ideas for the root veggies and recipes butternut squash.

This week your share may include…

Black Radish: Try the recipe for Black Radish Coins that is in your packet this week. It is based on a tasty dish that John Taboada makes at Navarre.

Brussel Sprouts: These look a bit rough, but just take a few leaves off  and they’ll be ready to go. The sprouts are really good when roasted. Just cut the large ones in half, toss them with a bit of olive oil & sea salt, then put them in a 425 degree oven until they start to get a bit carmelized around the edges – yum! You’ll find more tips and recipes here.

Cabbage: All of the crops in the brassica family (broccoli, collards, turnips etc) are much sweeter in the winter and cabbage is no exception. This red cabbage will be great in the Wintery Cabbage Slaw recipe in this week’s packet.

Carrots: What could be better than sweet winter carrots!

Garlic: These garlic leads are small, but tasty. We’ve included both Persephone & Music varieties in your share this week.

Kale: We have the most beautiful field of green Winterbor kale this season! I think it is one of the best varieties for kale chips and my favorite raw kale salad.

Onions: The variety this week is Copra, our stalwart yellow storage variety.

Potatoes: These russets will make great baked potatoes or latke’s.

Rutagaba: More of the fabulous Gilfeather! This variety is so good it has been included in the Slow Food US Ark of Taste, a catalog of over 200 delicious foods in danger of extinction. Help us protect and promote these foods by eating them.

Winter Squash: There are some interesting recipes in your packet this week including several soups and also some salads using the Butternut squash.

Coming soon… The Holidays!! We’re sending you home with some extra veggies this week because we don’t have another CSA pickup until the week of Jan 7th.
