Mike TrueseFarmer's Weekly MessageLeave a Comment

Dear CSA Member,

Thank you again to everyone who came the Farm Visit.  It was the perfect day!  If anyone would like to share pictures of that day please e-mail them to info@stoneledge.farm

-A special note for this coming week –   There will be No extra add on orders of mushrooms for week #16.  They will start again week #17.

So far the month of September feels more like August.  Hot and Humid!   As we are working our way into the fall season we are ready for the humidity to break.  The carrots have done well this season.  You will be getting a bunch of carrots in your CSA shares this week.   These carrots do not need to be peeled.  (A nice time saver for a busy week!)  The carrots are mixed.  There are purple carrots and orange carrots.  The purple carrots are a deep dark purple. The purple carrots have an orange center with a pretty ring of purple around them.
Below is a simple and tasty recipe for this weeks carrots we like to use here on the farm.

Directions:
•    Cut of the carrot tops.
•    Trim the carrot end that had the tops.
•    Wash and place in pan with 1 cup of water.
•    Add 1 tbl. of honey (more or less depending on your preference)
•    Cook until carrots are tender and honey has created a soft glaze over carrots.
•    Serve warm and enjoy!

New this week is Ancho Peppers.  These peppers are mildly hot and can be used in any spicy dish.  They are traditionally used for Chili Rellenos.  http://allrecipes.com/recipe/21148/chile-rellenos/  This week you will also be getting Tomatillos, Serrano Peppers (HOT use with Caution)  and Red Onions.  Great for salsa verde.  http://allrecipes.com/recipe/94028/tomatillo-salsa-verde/ If you have a great recipe you would like to share with the farm please send us an e-mail.
