Brussels Sprouts: This week you will be getting Brussels Sprouts. Below is information on how to prepare the Brussels Sports.

Use a paring knife to separate the sprout from the stalk.
Trim the base of each sprout close to the bottom but, not too close that the sprout starts to come apart.

3. Peel away and discard any browning or blemished leaves.
4. You are now ready to cook the Brussels Sprouts.

Fruit Share Members: This week you will be getting a specialty apple in your share. It is called the Evercrisp Apple. The Evercrisp Apple is a cross between a Fuji and a Honeycrisp Apple. The farmer told us that if you left the apple in the refrigerator they taste more like a Fuji and if left out on your table they taste more like a Honeycrisp!
