We are exited to share this Winter CSA season with you!
Now for a quick word from Jess:
Hi everyone, Jess here. Just wanted to put in a plug for the donation box outside of the Springdell Farmstand. If you have any clothing, or personal care items you’d like to donate, or an extra farmstand item, Springdell will be accepting these until Tuesday! They’ll be delivered to Loaves and Fishes, what a perfect way to give a little this holiday season. Stop by Springdell by Tuesday and, as the sign says get in the spirit of giving! Thank you, Springdell!
With the holidays upon us, what better time than now to brush up on some ideas for cranberry treats? Some of you may have enough fresh cranberry sauce in the pantry, and if that’s the case, here are a few more alternatives!
There’s a nice recipe for scones over at The Kitchn. As and adaptation, I added a few finely chopped apples and 1/2 teaspoon of almond extract. I did not try the dark rum glaze mentioned in the recipe as these were more of a breakfast thing here, but would be interested in hearing from those that check it out!
Cranberries, brown sugar, butter, and walnuts. Working together, they make a great topping for a brie (or just about anything, really!)
I hope you’ve enjoyed this cranberry inspiration! Enjoy your night and see you tomorrow at Sarah’s house for dinner!
