Winter Share 2011-12 – Week 14

Ramp Pasta, butter, chicken brats, and feta

I’ve noticed a lot of requests for butter lately, so I’m guessing it’s time for some butter.  This week you’ll have your choice of salted or unsalted butter.  For anyone with some butter already sitting around, I do suggest putting this butter in a zip-loc bag and putting it in the freezer.  Butter keeps fresher when frozen for it won’t absorb odors as readily.

We also have a special pasta this week.  Ohio City Pasta is working on a cracked black pepper and ramp pasta for you, made with fresh ramps from Hinkley OH.  I’m actually trying to get out the door now to go pick those up so OCP can have the pasta ready in time!

Be sure to top your pasta with a special new cheese from Lucky Penny Creamery.  It is a blended goat milk and sheep’s milk feta.  Abbe has been working on a few new products that you’ll see introduced thru Fresh Fork this summer!

To round out our package this week, we have a baby greens mix, ramps, and either kale or swiss chard (some of each).  We also have Fuji apples, yogurt, and chicken bratwursts.

Thanks and we’ll see you in a few days. See the bottom of this email for a few special announcements:
