CSA Bag pick up July 7 and 8

So last week we let everyone pick up their shares either Tuesday evening or any time on Wednesday.  We were surprised at how many of you chose to come out on Tuesday.  (Makes sense when you think of it, day before a holiday with everyone itching to get out to the lake!).  So we€™re increasing the window for you to get your shares!  Each week you can now pick up your shares any time from 5pm -8 pm on Tuesday.  Or Wednesday from 9 am-8pm.  We€™re hoping that these additional pick up hours make the program even more convenient for you!   Gourmet Protein Shares Grass Fed Lamb Chops.  Some Canadians have an aversion to lamb thinking that the taste will be strong.  Our lamb is grass fed and harvested at the correct age for you to have mild beautiful meat.  These chops are LEAN and tasty.  That means you MUST cook them on a low temperature.  Get your chops thawed, brought to room temperature, and seasoned well with salt and pepper.  Get the  bbq up to high to heat the grills.  When the grills are hot (temp about 400 degrees), turn the flame all the way down to low.  Lift the lid to vent the heat and pop the chops on.  Close the lid and set your timer for 2.5 minutes.  When the timer goes off, flip the chops and time them for another 3 minutes.  When that timer turns off remove the chops from the bbq, place them on a plate, and put an upside down bowl over the plate and let the chops 'rest' for about 3 minutes. Pork Sausage. As usual, the pork sausage is absolutely delicious.   Great on the grill, or in my food in a pot recipe which is in your recipe box and right here. Pickerel- This pickerel comes from the northern lakes near Puckatawagan Manitoba.  We only purchase fish from fisher people who harvest fish responsibly.  Barry's Pickerel is caught in the cold waters of Northern Manitoba which, I feel, gives it a cleaner taste than pickerel caught around Gimli.

Grass Fed Ground Beef- This beef is lean, flavouful, and just might change your life.  Though the ground beef makes wonderful burgers I feel that it really shines in chili, lasagna, meatballs and meatloaf.  All of those dishes where traditional ground beef leaves a shiny layer of grease on top. Like all grass fed meats, you'll want to cook your ground beef on a lower temperature to prevent over cooking and drying out.  When making burgers add in one cup of grated zucchini, carrot or beet per pound of ground beef to make them extra juicy! We sell grass fed beef because it's healthier for the cows to be eating grass, the meat may have higher levels of omegas for the humans who consume it, AND our grass fed beef producers pasture their cattle in a way that mimics bison herds on the prairies.  Our producers move cattle daily from pasture to pasture, ensuring healthy grasses, which in turn creates habitat for native birds, insects and animals.  Many of our producers leave low lying pasture areas as wetlands which is beneficial for many migrating birds, and helps replenish the aquifers each spring. There are so many reasons why we love eating and selling grass fed beef.
