SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENTS:

TOMATO SAUCE.…we have our new batch of Tomato Sauce ready for you! We are offering them for $7.50/jar or $85/case. Let us know if you would like to have some sent to your delivery location next week!

END OF SEASON….next week will be the last delivery for the season! We ask that if you have any stray CSA bins anywhere around that you bring them with  you to the site next week….they are quite expensive and the fewer new ones we’ll need to purchase for the 2020 season, the happier we’ll be! Thanks for your help with this….

Baked Apples

One of my favorites…..a crowd pleaser!

  • 4 large apples
  •  ¼ cup brown sugar
  •  ¼ cup chopped pecans
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • ¼ cup currants or chopped raisins
  •  1 tbsp butter
  •  ¾ cup boiling water

Preheat the oven to 375. Wash the apples and remove cores to ½” from the bottom of the apple. Spoon out the seeds and make holes about ¾ inch to an inch wide.

In a small bowl combine sugar, cinnamon, currants  (or chopped raisins) and pecans.

Place the apples in an 8×8” square baking pan. Stuff each apple with the mixture, dividing it evenly and then top with ¼ tbsp butter.

Add boiling water to the pan and bake 30-40 minutes until apples are tender. (Tastes delicious with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on the side)

A misty morning with some rain showers started us off this morning….feels good to have some moisture on the farm again. We aren’t typically this dry in October and November, and since we had already removed our irrigation pumps and pipes from the fields, we were wondering when Mother Nature was going to bless us with some of the wet stuff. Glad it’s back somewhat, and I’m sure the days will soon come when we’re begging for it to stop….the nature of life in the Pacific Northwest.

As the fall progresses the winter crops come on the scene. This week you will see that weird veggie in your box. For those of you who are new to the farm, you might not recognize it….it’s Romanesco! So fascinating to look at, it’s a shame to eat it, but please do! It’s a delicious cross of flavors between broccoli and cauliflower and can be cooked and eaten in similar fashion and dishes.

Maggie and Jesse were “de-brussels sprouting” the stalks for markets today….the rest of the CSA will receive their share of the little cabbage like orbs next week.

Erin doing the seemingly endless washing! Cabbages and Kale were the order of the day!

We hope you all have a lovely weekend, and enjoy your veggies!
