Well we are finally coming to the end of winter, I think. Looking at snow coming down right now that is supposed to become a sloppy wet mess for the rest of the weekend. This is our last share until we start up again on June 12th. Between now and then we use the time to get the farm up and running and shift gears into all the vegetables you like so much. I want to thank all of you for participating this winter and hope you enjoyed all the food we supplied. This has been one of the coldest and hardest winters I have experienced. A number of my farming friends have made the same claim and mentioned how difficult it was to do any winter production this year.
This last share is a simple one and we have tried to focus on fresh greens to help you shake off this winter mind set.
The one culinary idea I would like to suggest is to take the cabbage and remove the core, Then cut it into 3-4 wedges, sprinkle it with salt, pepper, and a bit of caraway seed. Drizzle with olive oil, and squeeze the juice of one lemon over it. Slide this into a baking dish into an oven at 350 degrees and roast it until tender. An easy great way to enjoy cabbage!
A final spring suggestion for those extra potatoes…..wash them and bake them with the skin on. When done load them with your favorite ingredients, classic baked potato. The other idea is to bake them and then just throw them in the fridge. When you want to make a salad, take one out and peel the skin off and dice the cold potato into your salad. Add vinaigrette and some fresh sliced shallot.
Please consider joining us for the summer season.
