NEWS FROM THE FARM
Snow! It may be beautiful, but it’s not nice weather for working in fields.  As the season comes to a close, it’s less comfortable for our workers picking and washing the veg in these cold temperatures. They deserve a big thank you for their hard work all season, and especially now as they work through the snow and wind and freezing wash waters.

NEWS FROM THE FARM
Ok, so this is the last week of Peppers!  (I promise.) We’ve had a bumper crop of peppers this season and as is typical in CSA, you’ve received the bounty of the harvest over the past couple months.  Luckily peppers are easy to roast and freeze for use in recipes over the winter!  Check out the instructions under the Recipe section in this newsletter.The Cauliflower is a real treat this week!  This crop is not especially easy to grow and we haven’t had it for several seasons, so enjoy!
Bon appetit! – Maggie

Cauliflower and potato soup
In a heavy bottomed soup pot, saute a chopped onion and 1 clove of minced garlic in some olive oil.  Add a head of cauliflower (roughly cut into 1″ chunks), 2-3 small potatoes and 1 carrot (all peeled and cut into 1/2″ chunks) and saute for a few minutes.  Add water to just cover the veg, put a top on the pot and boil, then simmer until the potatoes, carrots and cauliflower are tender.  Use an immersion blender to puree smooth and season to taste with salt and pepper.

Enjoy!
