what's new this week
Sweet and Savory
Sweet Potatoes: After curing in the greenhouse for two weeks, the starches have turned to sugars and these beauties are ready to eat! Try them baked, in a soup or make a pie (see our website). They will store well in a paper bag in a cool part of your kitchen. We have a huge crop this year - enough to last through Thanksgiving and then into the Winter Share!
Escarole: Early fall brings us this tangy bitter green that at first glance might seem a bit difficult to handle. When you cook this delectable green with the right bean it turns sweet and amazingly satisfying all the way around (check the recipe below for the real deal). We have an good crop this year - available 'til mid-November.
Black Radish: A new twist on a familiar taste. Black-skinned, round roots, with crisp, white, hot flesh. Enjoy the way it looks and then use like any radish - delicious fresh or pickled.
Where's my cauliflower? the plants are big. They seem to be curling in and ready to head up. But still, no heads. We feel like we've been waiting forever. When will they come!?
