With these whirlwind weeks of holiday cooking and new years celebrations, it seems like it was just yesterday but it was actually a few weeks ago on December 17th that we had our first distribution of our 5 month Winter season. We figured before we start posting all the amazing things we have been cooking/baking/preserving, it was about time we did an informational post about the December shares….
Winter Sun Vegetable Share
This month’s distribution included 6 frozen items. Typically we get 5 items plus a fresh bag of pea shoots. Unfortunately, early December was a hard one for pea shoots. The farm that we get our pea shoots from, Little Seed Gardens in Chatham, NY, was hit particularly hard with a cold snap and they lost their pea shoots. (The plan as it stands is to have pea shoots again in January and in subsequent months.) Therefore, in December we all got an extra frozen item in place of the pea shoots.
The December share included the following:
- 24 oz jar of Tomato Puree from Taliaferro Farm & Williams Farm
- Butternut Squash Puree from Black Horse Farm in Coxsackie, NY
- Winterbor Kale from Stoneledge Farm in South Cairo, NY
- Blueberries from Mead Orchards Farm in Tivoli, NY
- Green Beans from Markristo Farm in Hillsdale, NY
- Diced Peppers from Hepworth Farm in Milton, NY
- Sweet Corn from Gills Farm in Hurley, NY
Members picked up their dozen’s of gorgeous eggs…..

Orchard Share: One quart apple cider, apples
Our household stats: We are a family of four (two adults, a four-year old, and an infant) with a Week B half-share of both Veggie and Orchard. It takes us a full two weeks to use up all the produce. Sadly, Berry and Egg Share season is over. This week we enjoyed hearty meals featuring roasted potatoes, roasted butternut squash, apple crisp, hot apple cider, snake bites (IPA with cider!) and kale salad. Lots of kale salad.

This week we got butternut squash, potatoes, red onions, carrots, kale, mustard greens, cilantro, parsley, popping corn, apple and apple cider. We have a Full Monty share; We eat mostly vegan and usually have no problem getting through our fruit and vegetables each week. This is our 5th year in the CSA, so by now there are very few surprises. We have our favorite recipes for each vegetable that we return to each year.
With butternut squash, we pretty much always make a butternut squash and chickpea curry from Madhur Jaffrey’s wonderful “World Vegetarian” cookbook. Continue reading →

The sharers: We are three sweet female roommates (i.e., sugar ladies).
There are two approaches to cooking. The first is scientific, i.e., following a recipe. The other is improvisational, i.e., “winging it.” This week, we did a little of both. Continue reading →

VLAD’s CSA share of veggies and meat is split between Jenny, Laura Jo , Jordan, and Marc. Laura and Jordan lived together and split one half and Jenny & Marc split the other.
For the week of September 9th, the CSA haul was tomatillos, swiss chard, green peppers, eggplant, mini purple eggplant, habanero peppers, tomatoes, zucchini, and lemongrass. The meat was a bone-in pork loin, a top sirloin steak, and a chicken.
