In Your Share (Jan 7th edition)

Hope everyone had a nice winter holiday! We have a great share for you this week – the veggies just keep getting sweeter with the cold weather we’ve been having. You can download the Recipe Packet for this week’s share HERE. It includes some fun ideas for the roots, greens & delicata squash.

This week your share may include…

Brussel Sprouts: These look a bit rough, but peel a few leaves off  and they’ll be ready to go. The sprouts are really good when roasted. 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: Nice heads of sweet winter cabbage and lots of recipes in your packet for different things to do with it. This week the variety is Colorosa, a nice semi-savoyed type with a beautiful red blush.

Carrots: What could be better than sweet winter carrots!

Garlic: These garlic heads are small, but tasty.

Kale: Beautiful Redbor is in your share this week and it will work just as well as the green for kale chips and my favorite raw kale salad.

Onions: More  Copras – our stalwart yellow storage variety.

Potatoes: These Desiree red potatoes are good boiled or roasted & they’re high in Vitamin C.

Turnips: We’ll have a mix of Purple Top and Golden Ball turnips in the share and they are both open pollinated varieties.

Winter Squash: Everyone loves Delicata squash so we’re giving it out again. This recipe for squash rings is fabulous and there is another Delicata recipe in your packet. Not that it really needs a recipe, just cut it in half lengthwise and bake in the oven until soft – yum!

Coming soon… We’ll continue to have carrots and you may also see beets, black radish and more Gilfeather Rutabaga in your share next time.
