As I mentioned a few weeks ago, our regular farm share season has ended for the year…bummer (am considering signing up for the SolsticeCSA but have not made up my mind yet. In the mean time we are enjoying the last November share and looking forward to December which will be our final share until June (!)
Cabbage – I have to be honest…other thank making coleslaw, I don’t know what else to do with cabbage, no one seems particularly interested in it cooked. Fortunately, it keeps well in the fridge so I need to do some research into this.
Kale- Once again I tortured my children and made them eat kale the night I brought it home. 3 out of 4 humans liked it…the 4th choked it down under protest.
Brussell Sprouts-Have saved these to make for Thanksgiving tomorrow…braised with bacon and garlic…
Butternut squash-Luckily this also keeps so as soon as Thanksgiving is over, I will roast and freeze to use in recipes later. I did see an awesome squash / brussel sprout (?) recipe somewhere, will have to try and find it.
Other kind of squash-I have no idea what type of winter squash this is but will probably roast with butter and brown sugar
carrots- These carrots are so good and so fresh, I’ve just been slicing them up into carrot sticks for snacks and to pack in the girls lunches.
apples-Again, been eating these just as is. I am making an apple crisp for tomorrow (Thanksgiving here in the USA) but I am using up my older apples for it.
beets- Today I’ll be making Roasted Beets in Ginger Syrup for dinner tomorrow but I will be using beets I have already roasted and frozen (making a valiant effort at cleaning out the freezers around here!) I may save these for cold beet / goat cheese salad.
leeks- Will be slicing these and freezing for potato/leek soup or to roast with salmon, or both…I have a lot of leeks!
potatoes- beautiful little ones, my favorite…just going to toss w olive oil and roast
cranberries-Ah one of my favorite sides !! Am making a cranberry sauce with maple syrup and pineapple for tomorrow…am combining w some frozen cranberries as well.
lettuce – salad…other than those yummy chicken wrap things at PF Changs, I really don’t know what else to use it for!
dried herbs- Pasta Sprinkle from the Herb Farmacy I love their herbs and have already used this for pasta sauce….I also love their Farmhouse Favorite…need to get some more of that!
Love having a kitchen full of yummy things to cook!
More on our Thanksgiving cooking soon!
