Winter CSA Week 1

First Week of the Winter CSA

CSA Pick-Up Oct 20

We are so excited to move into the cold weather and begin the winter share.  The cold nights settling in are beginning to feel like winter, though we are quite happy for the snow to hold off and the rain to pour down instead, doing its best to make up for the long dry spell at the end of the summer.  The garden is safe from frost, though, and all tucked in under remay, making it look more like a white garden than a green one.

At tonight’s pick-up, we will also have chicken and lamb (sausage and stew meat) for sale.  The Montpelier pick up will be at the Skinny Pancake from 5:00-6:30, and the Worcester pick up will be at the Worcester Town Hall from 5:00-6:30.

We look forward to seeing you tonight!

This week on the menu: Braising mix, spaghetti squash, cilantro/parsley, leeks, turnips, rutabaga, spinach/broccoli

Whipped Rutabaga

We LOVE rutabagas!  Try them mashed, or whipped, with this recipe from thekitchn.com:

3 1/2 to 4 pounds rutabagas (two small or one large vegetable)
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
4 garlic cloves, peeled and roughly chopped
1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
1 cup whole milk
4 ounces cream cheese, cut into small chunks
2 tablespoons smoked olive oil
2 teaspoons smoked paprika
Freshly ground black pepper
