Winter Share 2011/12 – Week 2

Whole chicken, Chorizo, Sweet Potatoes, Lettuce and more

It’s time for our second winter CSA package.  It IS this week.  The schedule is a little goofy at first to get us on schedule for the holidays.  We have a pickup this week, then off next week, then special delivery times the week of Thanksgiving (we’ll send plenty of reminders/alerts next week).

So for this week, we have a very plump bag.  We have a whole pasture raised chicken, spicy chorizo sausage made from pasture raised Berkshire hogs, and grassfed ground beef!

On the produce side, we have tasty sweet potatoes, baby leaf lettuce, and crisp and tart Winesap apples.  We also have a selection of different braising greens for you to select from, including kale, collards, and swiss chard.

Finally, I know a few of you are trying to get through your yogurt from the last week of the summer CSA.  If you haven’t just drank it yet like I do, be sure to use it with this week’s tasty granola – an oats based granola that tastes kind of like a crumbled oatmeal cookie.

Here’s all of this week’s bag contents:

 

Winter CSA Wk 1:

1 whole pasture raised chicken

3 lbs sweet potatoes

1/2 lb baby leaf lettuce

Quarter peck Winesap apples

Choice of collards, swiss chard, kale, or watermelon radishes
