Winter Shares, Week 4 (2/20/14)

The snow hasn’t stopped our farmers from getting our share boxes put together. As always, pickup is at Sunnyside Community Services from 5pm-8pm. Please don’t come early, the volunteers need time to set up.

Golden Earthworm:
Watermelon Radish (2 lbs)
White or Yellow Potatoes (2 lbs)
Carrots (5 lbs)
Rutabaga (4 lbs)
Beets (4 lbs)
Leeks (3 pcs)
No sweet potatoes this delivery. They’ll be in the last delivery in March.

Need an idea for your leeks? I am in love with Nom Nom Paleo’s Slow Cooker Chicken recipe. The cookbook version varies a bit–instead of onions, use 3 leeks (white part only), and throw in a tablespoon of fish sauce for extra umami. I didn’t have tomato paste on hand the last time I made it, so I doubled up the fish sauce and it tasted delicious. I kind of wanted to pour the gravy on everything in sight, like boiled carrots and cheese fries and scrambled eggs.

Tomato Puree
