Winter is one of my favorite seasons to grow for as it is challenging but a very fun puzzle. We are excited that you have chosen to come along for the ride and appreciate your support!
This week in the share:
Radicchio (many different varieties, some varigated, some red, all beautiful)
Chicories are my favorite winter crop, they have really won me over. Not only do they withstand some crazy cold temperatures, but the colder it gets the better they taste. The heads you are getting in your share actually came out of the field this morning and were covered in a layer of snow and ice several days ago. Radicchio can be used in salads, sautéed, roasted and more.
German Butterball Potatoes
If you've had our CSA before, you've been able to enjoy these potatoes! They are the best and it is all in the name!
Blue Solaise Leek
This French heirloom winter hardy leek is short but packs a punch. With blue leaves and a beautiful blanche these leeks can be used for soups, grilling, baking, sautéing and so much more! I love to to sauté the leeks in butter and then put on top of french bread with a poached egg, yum!
A very sweet and crisp variety, especially after the cold!
These little cuties came out of our dry-farmed corn, beans and squash field. Why are they small? During a drought year the plants try and conserve as much water as possible, especially when not getting an input of irrigation. While small, these lil guys taste great because the sugars are more concentrated!
See you in two weeks!
