CSA Members!: You balances are not in this email but will be next week. If would before next Tuesday either email me or ask at market! Thanks!
Our markets this week:
Wednesday: Ann Arbor
Saturday: Ann Arbor, Royal Oak, and Detroit's Eastern!
We are hiring again! We have positions for farm crew, markets, and weeder harvesters. Check out our ads on indeed for more information.
RUTABAGA! Still swooning! You can mash them just like you do your potatoes or you can follow this recipe for security.
- Scrubbed and cubed rutabaga, 1 quart will do. Some folks peel them, but without the wax and chemicals, I don't think there is any reason.
- 3-4 Tablespoons oil or butter
- Salt and pepper
- Nutmeg (optional)
- Put rutabaga in a sauce pan and cover with water (add a dash of salt!)
- Bring to boil and and simmer until tender (about 30 to 40 minutes)
- Drain and return to pot
- Add butter, salt, pepper, and 1/4 tsp nutmeg
- Mash 'em up!
These are great as a side dish. Great centrally located. Great.
Food for thought:
Short and sweet. A true punt of an email. We are glad to be back and we hope you are glad too. Even though it will be cold, we will be at market with our delicious vegetables!
