DuckFun_Fall2014This is our last CSA share for 2014. The seven-month season is coming to a close; but we still have new items for you even in this final week. We cannot impress enough how the recent cold weather and below freezing conditions has added sweetness and developed flavors in a lot of our greens and root crops such as escarole, carrots, collards, kale, rutabaga, fennel, and celeriac. This time of year is when many of these crops really shine. Many of the greens may experience some slight tip burn from excessive cold, but they are simultaneously developing more sugar content and that makes them really delicious. We are hoping some of this week’s items might make it onto your Thanksgiving dinner table. Both rutabaga and celeriac make great additions to your regular mashed potato recipe for a more complex and exciting dish. The fennel brings a bright zing into any fall salad green dish, just thinly slice the root and marinate slightly in vinegar or lemon juice. If you cannot keep up with all if the root veggies or cabbage you have received over the past month, store them in your refrigerator, topped and wrapped in a plastic bag. They will keep well for months without losing flavor or texture and provide you sustenance long after your share is over. We thank each of you for choosing to support Tomten Farm over this past year. We have had a great time developing each week’s share to find interesting and tasty pairings for our produce items. Hopefully it has inspired lots of great meals in your homes. Enjoy the share and see you next year or maybe sometime this Winter… Autumn and BrianRutabaga_Fall2014
