It has been nice to enjoy some warm days mixed in with some cooler wetter ones this week! We are looking forward being a part of the Tri-County Farm Trail at our farm this weekend. Come on out and see us Saturday or Sunday 10am to 4pm. We will be giving tours of the fields, greenhouses and animal barns.
This week Student or Small Shares received purple kale, tomato, apples, corn, carrots, yellow or zuchinni squash, and radishes. 1/2 shares received brussel sprouts, salad mix, cabbage, corn, cherry tomatoes, winter squash, chives and radishes. Full shares received everything in the 1/2 share as well as beets, carrots, eggplant, endive, herbs and apples.
Looking for some creative ways to use radishes? this recipe roasts them like you would potatoes! https://eatthegains.com/rosemary-roasted-radishes/ I like to eat them raw dipped in hummus or ranch dressing as well.
Here’s a recipe for roasted carrots and beets while we are talking about roasting things! https://www.saltandlavender.com/maple-roasted-beets-and-carrots/ This one is just for carrots but could definitely work for beets too. https://www.closetcooking.com/maple-dijon-roasted-carrots/#more
One of my favorite vegetables is brussel sprouts! and one of my favorite ways to cook them is with bacon and garlic. I also add onions. https://what2cook.net/crispy-brussels-sprouts-with-bacon-and-garlic/
Endive is a fantasitc salad green! A litter bitter but wonderful when used in a recipe like this one that also includes cherry or grape tomatoes and an egg. https://www.joeshealthymeals.com/2018/06/13/curly-endive-lettuce-salad-with-bacon-and-poached-egg/
Cabbage is great in coleslaw or fried. This recipe for fried cabbage calls for a large head of cabbage. Since you received a small one in the 1/2 and full share this week just cut the recipe in half. https://www.4theloveoffoodblog.com/new-years-fried-cabbage? This is a very simple recipe for coleslaw. I either do not use the sugar that is called for or reduce it.
