Notes from the GEOF farmhouse kitchen…

IN YOUR BOX…

Red Radishes – What a wonderful, bright surprise to see these beauties in the box! Slice in salads, or enjoy with butter and salt and crusty bread. Sounds weird, tastes delicious!

Japanese Salad Turnips – The bottoms are great raw or sauted or my favorite, roasted! The greens are delicious too, so cook them just like spinach. 

Potatoes – This week we have a white variety called “Eva”. It’s excellent for mashed potatoes. 

Lettuce – I know you’ve been waiting a long time for more lettuce. I have too! Loving the Romaine this week with some homemade croutons. 

Radicchio – Farmer Matt and I have been enjoying this leafy radicchio non-stop. I have to say that the bitter greens paired with garlic, olive oil, lemon juice and gruyere cheese is pretty addictive. I’m dreaming about it again now…

Broccoli – I made a big batch of cream of broccoli soup with the broccoli and the white potatoes over the weekend. Wonderful and warming. The kids loved it too!

Bon appetit! – Maggie

WINTER CSA

We’ve now opened up our registration for our Early Winter CSA Program! This program is separate from our 26-week Full Season CSA. It consists of 3 deliveries (spaced 2 or 3 weeks apart) starting in December. The winter share boxes consist of our own CERTIFIED ORGANIC root vegetables and storage crops like Potatoes, Sweet Potatoes, Watermelon Radish, Carrots, Beets, Rutabaga, Winter Squash, and possibly Broccoli, Kale and Cabbage. Exact contents may change. We also offer a Cider and Apple Share from Briermere Farms that is not organic.
