Final Fall Share, #6

Posted 12/12/2018 8:19am by Aaron Lichtenberg.

Hello Farm Faithful!

The weather outside is more than a bit frosty, but the high tunnel is still cranking out some beautiful, sweet spinach for ya's. After a nice start to the harvest morning, hanging at around 60F, a couple hours of of picking ended around 2:30 Pm with frozen fingers as the temperatures quickly plummeted as long shadows were cast by the winter sun falling behind the treeline...the sun dissapears early in these dark December days!

We have been out and about this holiday season offering our prepared goods to the local community at different markets and special events. So, if you're looking for a stocking stuffer or last minute gift for a coworker, friend, or family, feel free to get in touch...and you can always order something from our online store.

You can also find us at the last Gilford Farmer's Market this Saturday from 9-noon. We're also back again, as a guest vendor, at the Wolfeboro Farmer's Market this Saturday from 10-2pm, or the Wolfeboro Co-op on Sunday from 11-2pm. We are considering more attendance at the Wolfeboro Winter Market a few more times in the new year, so watch out for a newletter letting you know when we'll be there!

Beyond the usual recipe bank, here are a couple of recipes we have used or have been recommended to us:

Butternut Squash Lasagna with a Bechamel Sauce - We have made a version of this for years. It is basically a combination of this and this. In lieu of fresh basil, we brown sage leaves in butter which we lay on the noodles for one layer, and add star anise and rosemary to the sauce as it cooks.

Butternut Squash and Kale (or Spinach!) Strata

Butternut Squash Casserole with Leeks, Prosciutto, and Thyme

Pumpkin (sub butternut squash) Doughnut Muffins  - We made these to add to our holiday cookie bags and, while dense and filling, they are still tasty!

In your share this week:

Thurs-Sat, Dec 13th-15th, Fall #6

4 Carrots (lb's)
6 Garlic (each)
2 Potatoes, Regular (lb's)
1 Spinach, Baby (bag)
4 Squash, Butternut (lb's)
