Waverly Farms CSA 11/16/17 - Weekly Members

Dear CSA Members, 

This week's share is for Weekly CSA members, but please read below, even if you are not getting a share this week, for important information about Thanksgiving and Winter shares. 

Thanksgiving - Deliveries Wednesday, November 22nd 

Thanksgiving is upon us and we are excited about your CSA shares this week and next.  Remember that Thanksgiving shares will be delivered on Wednesday, November 22nd. Here's our best guess of what will be in your Thanksgiving share:

  • Sweet Potatoes
  • Winter Squash (Butternut or other)
  • Winter Greens (Collards, Kale, Brussels Greens)
  • Maybe Fall Salad Mix (delicious with pears!)
  • Garlic
  • Hoping for carrots
  • Probably NOT have peppers or cabbage
  • Protein Share members will receive sausage bacon and beef roasts, likely

Thanksgiving is the last share for Bi-weekly CSA members. Weekly members will receive one more share on November 30th

Winter Products - December through April

We keep growing in winter, but not as much. There is always the possibility of a freeze or heavy snow that would preclude us from having a complete farm share. So, instead of Winter Shares, we send an email to our members with a list of available eggs, meats and vegetables. This email will be sent on Sunday before deliveries on Thursdays, usually every other week or monthly. You have until Tuesday night to let us know what you want. To order, simply follow instructions in the email. Orders are filled on a first-come-first-serve basis. We'll send a separate email to you with more details about our winter products.

CSA Shares This Week - Weekly Members Only

Spaghetti Squash - If you have not seen the video, yet, this is How to Cook Spaghetti Squash. From there, you can make it savory, as described in the video, or throw on butter, cinnamon and brown sugar or maple syrup to make Sweet Spaghetti Squash.  

Carrots - These cuties have been in the ground a long time. We thought we'd lost them, but they were just waiting for cooler weather. Freshly harvested and frost kissed, these carrots should be sweet enough to eat raw, to dip into your favorite hummus, or to cook. You might try Garlic Parmesan Roasted Carrots, or this stunning Thanksgiving dish, Cinnamon Butter Baked Carrots

Sweet Dumplings and Munchkins - Use them for table decor, roast them, or make ahead this beautiful Roasted Carrot, Winter Squash and Apple Soup.  

Cabbage, Collards and Brussels Greens - Show off these gorgeous greens by cooking them together. The sweet cabbage is the perfect compliment for winter greens. An impressive dish is Cabbage and Collards (Brussels greens are cooked as Collards). 

Kale - Kale Chips would be a fun appetizer for Thanksgiving, and they are a cinch to make; a great project for younger guests who want to participate. Here is How To Make the Best Kale Chips. Scroll down for the oven-baked version if you do not have a dehydrator. Some of us sprinkle a little parmesan on the chips when we take them out of the oven.  

Sweet Peppers - Peppers are so amazingly versatile. Scroll through these 27 ways to Make Your Bell Peppers Less Boring for some great ideas - everything from dropping sausage and egg in them to a rich stir-fry with tofu or beef.  

Garlic - Use it for cooking or roast it for a fabulous butter on bread. Try Roasted Garlic Butter

Protein Shares This Week - Weekly Members

Lamb Burger - Spice it up and then compliment it with a cool yogurt or mustard as Lamb Burger with Feta Tzatziki.

Beef Steaks - We sent a variety. If you don't know what to do with them just cut them into Chunky Chili or Slow Cooker Tacos.  

Hamburger - For pre- or post-Thanksgiving meal, you might turn our burger into Meatballs and Spaghetti using Chef John's Meatballs

Enjoy!
