This week CSA members will enjoy:
Appearance: Red blushed, with a creamy yellow background color
Flavor Profile: Blended sweet-tart flavor. Exceptionally juicy and crunchy. Our most popular apple.
Uses: Honeycrisp is best eaten fresh out of hand, or chopped for salads. Some of our customers enjoy adding a Honeycrisp apple to a pie for a little bit of natural sweetness.
Appearance: Dark red skin, large sized apple, white flesh.
Flavor Profile: Firm and juicy with a mildly tart and rich flavor.
Uses: Great all-purpose apple: eaten fresh or used for pies, sauce, baked, etc. Has a long storage life.
The Bosc Pear is a large russeted pear with white flesh and a rich, delicious flavor. Bosc Pears must ripen off the tree. You can tell when they are ripe as their skin turns from a brownish green to a golden hue, and the flesh around the stem will wrinkle slightly.
Our carrots are sweet and crunchy and store well. Enjoy them fresh on a salad or roast them with other root vegetables and onions.
Sunchokes have a sweet nutty carrot-like flavor. They are delicious raw, or can be roasted or pureed for soup. Share with us how you've been enjoying your Sunchokes.
Garlic is a staple in every kitchen!
Our white potatoes are excellent in all forms - roasted, mashed, baked, scalloped & more!
We will bring a handful of jam varieties, and you may choose one; first come-first serve.
Jam is a great way to add diversity to your breakfast. Add a spoonful to your yogurt or oatmeal; or you can go the more traditional route and spread some on your toast or muffin.
