CSA pick up February 10

Hello all Here we are, heading into the last quarter of the winter CSA. One of our producers has planted radishes, chard and green onions in their greenhouse and are hoping that we have them in our bags in the next couple of weeks.  Bright sunshiney days have been short this winter, so the greenhouse products have not produced as our farmers expected.  Even in a covered, heated greenhouse, weather still plays such an important role in food production. This week everyone to receive Lettuce, greenhouse grown, spray free Herbs, greenhouse grown, spray free Parsnips, organic.  The recipe that I linked to is for broccoli Parmesan fritters, but you could substitute the parsnips for the broccoli and still have a kick butt fritter.  General rules when you don't know what to do with a veg?  Roast it in a pan with oil and garlic,  shred it and turn it into a salad or cole slaw, chop it up and turn it into a fritter.  A latke is another great option. Potatoes, organic.  If you have a waffle maker, you have to make these latke waffles. Garlic, spray free Frozen Rhubarb, spray free.  You can stew, make pies, cake, tarts, muffins.... I like stewed rhubarb on ice cream, yogurt and oatmeal.  Did you know that the colour of the rhubarb does not change the flavour.   Red rhubarb varieties (sometimes called strawberry rhubarb) are no sweeter than green varieties, they just look prettier. Mixed shares to receive the above base as well as Sausages Grass fed beef burger patties.  My obsession with open faced burgers continues.  Now that you have a dozen beautiful eggs, you can top your open faced burger with a fried egg (runny yolk mandatory), for a fork and knife burger experience. Eggs, one dozen, freely run, organic.  I've added 3 egg recipes here because Hermann's eggs are just that good.  The hens run around and eat calendula flowers which boosts the colour and flavour of the yolks, the shells are thick denoting a properly mineralized diet, and the overall taste is just incredible.  They are the only eggs that Marc and I eat, and are the most affordable way to get organic animal protein into your diet. Produce plus shares to receive the above base as well as... More lettuce and herbs, greenhouse grown, spray free Gourmet inspirations sauce Beets, organic.  I found the mother of all lists of beet recipes.  Many of which I will be trying this week!!
