In order to keep the cooler space full and serving you well, we restocked yesterday. 

You won’t want to miss the fresh celery with full tops–outer leaves and stalks are perfect for cooked dishes, and inner leaves and stalks are juicy and great with a cheese spread or peanut butter for a healthy snack.  OR throw the whole celery, quartered onion, salt and pepper, and your favorite seasonings into a stock pot, and cook them all down for a good nutritious soup stock to use for soups, stews, gravies, and to thin your mashed potatoes and add a little more flavor!  It will keep in the fridge several weeks, or you can hot water bath it to seal into the winter, as long as you have no meat additives.

The second item we have stocked in abundance are Brussels sprouts.  These are full stalks and will keep in your fridge for a few weeks.  If you have never had sprouts fresh off the stock, you are in for a treat!  The flavor is full and sweet–not strong and overbearing–and they are easy to cook.  There are several recipes at http://www.lloydcraftfarms.com , under the Recipe Page.  (One of our favorites is the Balsamic Vinegar and Craisins!)

Other items of interest are Cabbage (3 kinds for 3 different uses), Purple Topped Turnips, last of the Broccoli from the high tunnel, and our triple colored tender Carrots in 1# bags.  Outside the cooler are Jumbo Candy Sweet onions for $1.00, Fingerling Mix potatoes, and a PLETHORA of Winter Squash (I like that word!)–

All reasonably priced, all organically grown, all local!  Check it out–The Farmer’s Wife
