What’s in the Bag — Week 22

Dear CSA Member

After the storm and many people in the region are still trying to figure how to best manage. The farm was spared and we will be resuming deliveries this week. It rained only a bit and there was one windy night. As we get ready to make this weeks’ delivery, we hope that you have been able to also weather the storm.

The Vegetable Share this week is very large. The Fruit Share will be substantial for the remaining weeks. Our delivery truck will be packed full. This is also the Coffee Share delivery for November. Two more weeks of delivery after this, so if there are Market Place items you would like to order, please do so soon.

Richard Sandhaus, BetterCheaperSlower web based daily info, has made a wonderful recipe using beets and radish. To view the recipe go to www.BetterCheaperSlower.com/CrunchyFallSalad for the recipe, photos and details. There is also a delicious Beet Cake Recipe on the farm website, recipe link. I tried the Beet Cake recipe and substituted 1 cup of grated carrot, 1 grated apple and 1 cup grated beet in place of 2 cups beets. I think the recipe may even be able to use more than 2 cups of grated vegetables but I have not tried out this theory, yet.

New this week are Turnips with Greens. The Turnip Greens are spicy, mustardy tasting greens and should be removed from the turnip and cooked separately. Also new are Brussels Sprouts. They are just delicious. Cut the sprout from the stalk, remove any off colored outer leaves and rinse. Steam or sauté. There are a few crew members that thought they did not like Brussels Sprouts until they tried them fresh.

The Face Book photos are updated on Sunday.

Enjoy the vegetables.
Deborah for everyone at Stoneledge Farm
