Although it feels like the winter is never going end, it technically already has! Even though the winter is over, our Springdell Winter CSA will carry on for two more pickups.  The Springdell Show and Tell proudly presents the 10th Springdell Farms 2015 Winter Share box of the season, which consisted of: 

  • 2 1/2 gallons of skim milk from High Lawn Farm, Lee, MA (Sarah got 1 qt half & half and 1 1/2 gallon low fat milk)
  • 1/2 gallon of cider from Box Mill Farm in Stow
  • 5 hothouse tomatoes
  • 5 sweet potatoes
  • 8 oranges
  • Ben’s buttermilk pancake mix, Jess only
  • Ben’s Maple Syrup, Sarah only
  • 1 pound of bacon
  • 1 package of sandwich steaks, Jess only
  • Beef Kabobs, Sarah only
  • 10 onions from cold storage
  • 1 head of green cabbage
  • 1 bag of arugula
  • 1 bag of spinach 
  • 3 heads of bok choy 

We are looking forward to using all of these delicious items and sharing our experiences with you!  We hope you’ll share your experiences with us as well!


In the meantime, here are a few inspirational ideas from Sarah on how you can enjoy your bacon ends from Springdell’s Winter Share Box #9.


Do you still have those bacon ends in your freezer?  Not sure what to do with them? Not sure what they even are?  Well, bacon that you get at the store, or better yet the farm stand, is beautiful and all cut evenly.  Now think about the animal, pigs are not perfectly shaped like the rectangular strips we all love.  Bacon ends are simply the scrap pieces that are leftover after those cuts are made.  Bacon ends are still delicious, bacon fat is just plain delicious.  Here is a quick “go to” list of 10 ways you can pull those ends out of the freezer and make a dish tastier, your tongue will thank you.

1.  Bacon pizza

2.  Fried rice

3.  Bake them into a cornbread

4.  Sauté them with greens, brussel sprouts, or cabbage

5.  Mix them into your ground meat for an even tastier burger

6.  Bacon Quiche

7.  Potato Salad

8.  Bacon bits on a salad (not the “bacon” bits in a plastic shaker)

9.  Add them to meatballs

10.  Bacon butter (mix into softened Amish roll butter and chill)
