Farm Share Week 11: Aug 10-13, 2016

Hello from the farm! I’m very excited to get this weeks share-we missed a couple of weeks while away on vacation and I am SO excited by this beautiful array of organic vegetables.  I am going to try my hand at canning on a couple of these I think and if I do I promise I’ll share!

With the blazing heat (and the scattering of rain) we have a great share this week coming to your door.  Please send pictures of things you’ve made-with recipes for me to share to help encourage and inspire others on their journey to eating local, fresh and organic.

So far I see fennel soup in my future as well as leek-and likely some cabbage rolls with our  chinese cabbage.

This weeks recipe I would like to share is for your raddichio.  I have some sausages in the freezer that are honey garlic I am hoping to try this with.
sausages with caramelized red onions and radicchio.

-grape tomatoes (yay!)
-sugar snap or snow peas
-chinese cabbage
-raddichio (red/white leafy head: bitter green but nice in salad mix- try in a caesar salad)
-romaine lettuce
-green kale
-cauliflower, chinese broccoli, beans or mini tomatoes
-garlic chives
-pickling cucumbers

About the Author

StephanieMy name is Stephanie Hofman and this is my 5th year with the farm share program. I am an earth loving hippie-follower of Christ-lover of all people and love to try new things. I am not a blogger outside of zephyr organics-so please keep this in mind as I continue to learn the in's and out's of what it means to create a good blog and to be a good blogger! My family and I do our best to make everything at home from scratch, but we are not fully organic, non-GMO, nor are we dairy free or gluten free. I do my best with what I have and am slowly but surely making changes towards a more healthy lifestyle. I try and keep the recipes that I share to encompass all diets-some will be desserts, some will be juicing recipes (last year I failed epically at my juicing fast-FYI don't add 'more kale' just to use it up in a recipe) some gluten and dairy free-some vegan and many in between. Most of the items in the box I am familiar with now-but a few years ago I didn't know what bokchoy was nor had I ever heard of swiss chard-now they are my 2 favourite items to get in my box! I'm a free going spirit who has taught herself most things and love to help others out since I've only become who I am and gotten to where I am in life because of the love and generosity of those who've I've encountered. I've never been very good at spelling nor have I been very computer savvy. Any feedback and suggestions are always welcome. Thank you so much for joining us on this journey towards supporting local farmers and supporting the growing organic food movement. May your box bless you and your family all season long and I look forward to sharing my recipe successes and failures with you.View all posts by Stephanie →
