CSA pick up July 30th

I hope that you all tried and adored the bison farmer sausage that was in your CSA share last week.  We have made a connection with a butcher who does honest to goodness wood smoking of things, and we really wanted you to share in the glory that is a true wood smoker.

But that was last week....

This week!  Everyone seems to have a love for bacon these days.  Candied bacon in baked goods, bacon wrapped everything, and those horrid epic mealtime videos.  But what about those people trying to watch their cholesterol or fat content?

Solution! Grass fed beef bacon!  We have our butcher cure, smoke, then slice up our beef briskets, making grass fed beef bacon.  As per usual, grass fed beef is LEAN!  Which means this item will give you some bacony flavour, without all of the fat.  It also means that you have to cook it a bit differently.  I have 2 different methods.

1. Thaw your beef bacon fully.  Heat a pan to medium high, and cook for just a minute per side

2. Thaw your beef bacon fully.  Heat a pan to high, add butter (so much for the low cholesterol claims) and quickly fry your beef bacon.  Your beef bacon will have a little more of a chew to it than a pork bacon will.  I like it in sandwiches, for breakfast, or cooked then chopped up on a salad.

This week's share to containe

Grass fed beef burger patties (grass fed, no growth hormones, antibiotics or animal by product in the feed.  Freely ranged)

Grass fed beef bacon (grass fed, no growth hormones, antibiotics or animal by product in the feed.  Freely ranged)

Tamworth beef cheese smokies, (Freely ranged, no sow crates, no growth hormones, antibiotics or animal by products in the feed).  These smokies are made with bothwell cheddar cheese.  From fully thawed, cook over a medium heat on your bbq.   Also great roasted in the oven.

Natural pork shoulder steak (Freely ranged, no sow crates, no growth hormones, antibiotics or animal by products in the feed).  These shoulder steaks are rich and meaty.  Grill on medium high on the bbq, roast in the oven, cut up and use in a stir fry, pop into a crock pot for pulled pork.
