The “Tell”- Springdell Winter Share Pickup #8 2

Today is our “Tell” of the Springdell Show and Tell. We’ll be reviewing Springdell Farms’ 8th Winter Share box of the season, which consisted of:

All veggie scraps were composted unless otherwise noted.

This share box was so inspirational.  Despite the ice dams, sub zero temps and leaky roofs, we are really feeling that spring is just around the corner now!  As always, we welcome you to share in the comments what you are doing with your share items.  We look forward so seeing you tomorrow for the 9th Springdell Farms Winter Share Pickup.

    Ladies, would you kindly post your Recipes for the Sweet Potato Pie and the Sweet Potato Chowder. I still have some gorgeous Sweet Potatoes, remember my Pick Up is a week behind you, and both Pictures looked so yummy. They would be perfect as Lenten Friday, no Meat, Meals for my Family (along with an Entree of Fresh Fish).

      You got it! I used this recipe from Taste of Home and it was great.

      I’m in the process of drafting a blog post for the sweet potato chowder, but here’s a sneak preview for those that want their chowder ASAP. 😉
      1 cup of chopped onion
      2 tbsp oil (I usually use coconut but really any I’ve tried works)
      2 cloves minced garlic
      1 tsp red curry paste (I used Korma paste last time and it was great), or you can sub 2-3 tsp curry powder
      Roughly 7 cups of sweet potatoes peeled and cut in to small cubes (about 3/4 inches)
      3 1/2 cups of chicken broth or veggie broth preferably homemade
      1 can of coconut milk
      2 tsp grated ginger
      1/2 tsp white pepper
      1/8 tsp salt

      Heat oil then cook onion for a few minutes before adding garlic and curry paste. Cook about 5-ish more minutes, stirring, until onion is translucent. Add remaining ingredients, bring to a gentle boil, then simmer covered for about 15 minutes. When the sweet potatoes become tender, take it off the heat. You now have a choice to blend anywhere between half of it, to all of it. If you blend it all, it’s more of a bisque, if you blend half and then return it to the pot, you’ll have more of a chowder consistency. Both are great. Hope you like it!
