Hi everyone, Jess here to share the contents of this lovely Winter CSA. What a rainbow of veggies, an amazing spread for December!
- Fresh Coffee – From Muddy Water Coffee Roasters, Harvard, MA, this is delicious locally roasted coffee. If you’re not a coffee drinker, this coffee makes a great rub for meats, ice cream, or a holiday gift for the coffee drinker in your life.
- Springdell Meats – Whether it’s Kielbasa, Bacon, or Sausage, you’ll be a happy camper with the selection!
- Sugar Beets– I’ll be going with a borscht this week. If borscht isn’t your thing, check out Veggiescope for other ideas!
- Tully Farms Milk– Not pictured as I accidentally left the stand without mine today, but hopefully you can envision those lovely glass bottles of goodness.
- Storage Cabbage– Rotkohl is a tangy accompaniment to kielbasa. I know I know, I keep making Rotkohl, but I have to jump on that apple and cabbage combo when I can. As Farmer Jamie suggests, trim the stem the cabbage and take off the outer layer of leaves before use.
- Eggs– Store in the fridge until ready for use, and enjoy these little protein bombs at your leisure!
- Red Potatoes – These are absolutely delicious Roasted and served with Herbed Butter!
- Tomatoes – From Backyard Farms, Maine, the best tomatoes around this time of year.
- Turnips – Turnip and Potatoes are great together. Try a soup or mash, I’ll make one this week and share a post here.
- Baby Pak Choi/Bok Choy – However you word it, a delicious veggie! These will go great with the mandarines. Search this site for “Orange and Bok Choy” and you’ll find a few delicious dishes.
- Mandarines – Grown in the USA, sweet and delicious! Enjoy with your Bok Choy, and definitely peel and eat a few as-is.
- Winter Spinach– This is one of those veggies that my kids eat as-is. Hey, I’m not going to argue.
- Garlic– Cool dark and dry storage for these beauties.
- Yellow Onions– Onions store fabulously in a cool dark onion bin – check, pull and immediately use any that are losing their texture, as they may be fixing to sprout. My ripcord idea when I get a lot of onions is usually to caramelize a batch and then add with wild abandon to just about any dish.
- Italian Parsley – A great way to add a little green to your winter dishes.
That’s about it on my end. As always, do check in with questions, comments, or recipe ideas of your own! I always love to hear from folks. Meanwhile, sweet and savory dreams!
