As mentioned in last week's edition of Tasty and Healthy, we are sliding into our routines, but are saddened that we lost all our crops to the two-day-freeze 2 weeks ago.
We hope to replant soon, but most items take 60-90 days before they may be harvested. We're sad for you, too, because these were specially grown for our local community for maximum flavor and nutritive value.
Our pesticide-free turnip roots are still available. These are great to use served alone (in steamed cubes, or mashed in place of potatoes). Dice or rough chop to add to any other vegetable side dishes for interesting taste and color contrast.
It will be great seeing you all at our satellite locations as well as at the Product Barn:
- Beautiful, large Butternut Squash! (perfect for stuffing, steaming, microwaving, or in casseroles) See recipes below.
- Large Yellow Squash (perfect for slicing, stuffing, and frying!)
- Large Zucchini (peel and use in Breads, Cakes, Muffins, or slice and fry. Great in casseroles and salads. For fun, slice it lengthwise and create "boats" to hold rice, meat or cheese!
- Perfect for steaming, cole slaw, or stuffing! (recipe below)
- (Cabbage is so reasonably priced at this time of year, making it possible to use often. This vitamin rich vegetable is extremely versatile)
- Ice Berg
- Romaine Lettuce
- Bok Choy (may be used hot or cold, steamed or raw, boiled or sliced/diced)
- Scallions - with luscious long greens! (be sure to use those greens on potatoes, as garnish, or atop soups, and vegetable sides.
- Pineapple (fresh)
- Mutshu Apples (sort of a wonderful combination of Granny Smith and Fuji)
- Rome Apples (try a blend and make an apple crisp)
- Pineapple-Orange Naval Oranges (yum!)
- Our pesticide-free turnips
- Baking Potatoes
- Gold Yukon Potatoes
