Theme: How we saved the cherry tomatoes

Late last summer we got a call from Hepworth Farm. One of their large retail customers (who shall not be named) decided they did not need the truck load of cherry tomatoes Hepworth had harvested for them. Could we buy them?  Even for us that is a heck of a lot of cherry tomatoes. So we came up with an idea...why not freeze them? We did and woo-hoo that is what you are getting this week.

Oven-roasted Creamy Cherry Tomato Sauce
R
oasted Tomato Soup
Brown Rice, Tomatoes and Basil

Blueberry Kale Smoothie
Blueberry Banana Smoothie

Blueberry Sauce
Banana and Blueberry Pancakes with Cinnamon-Vanilla Butter
Spaghetti Squash When cooked, the flesh of spaghetti squash falls away into ribbons or strands, which makes a great substitute for pasta. The flesh can also be baked, boiled, steamed or microwaved, and the seeds can be roasted and eaten like pumpkin seeds. Shaul Farm (FAM)
Roasted Squash with Parmesan and Herbs
Spaghetti Squash with Basil Pesto
Spaghetti Squash with Feta, Arugula and Pine Nuts
Cabbage, Kale, and Salad Mix Hooray for Crooked Carrot Farm in Ithaca, NY. They had a boatload of napa cabbage and came up with this fantastic idea: a winter cabbage, kale, carrot, radish salad mix. So this is your opportunity to make a killer winter salad. Add shredded parmesan, crunchy nuts, and a dijon-based dressing with balsamic, olive oil, and garlic or a standard mayo based dressing. Toss in your turnips and pea shoots. If you've got any apples lying around, slice 'em and mix 'em in, too. Crooked Carrot Farm (OG)
Kale, Cabbage, and Carrot Chopped Salad with Maple Sesame Vinaigrette
Two- Minute Creamy Salad Dressing
Pea Shoots Pea shoots are young pea vines. These nutritional powerhouses are packed with vitamins A, C and folic acid. Sauté quickly with olive oil and garlic for a healthy side dish, or put out on the table raw for a snack--to entice the little ones, try tossing with a little melted butter and sugar. Pea shoots also make wonderful pesto: all it takes is 10 minutes, 7 easy ingredients and a plate of pasta for an amazing meal. Little Seed Farm (CO)
Pea Shoot Salad with Shaved Parmesan & Lemon Vinaigrette
Pea Shoot Pesto
Ramped Up Crostini with Ricotta and Pea Shoots (makes a great appetizer)
Sautéed Pea Shoots
These items are for Small, Standard, & Family sizes only.
Purple Top Turnips Totally underrated root vegetables. Raw turnips are a very good source of dietary fiber, Vitamin C, and Manganese. You will need to peel. Try roasting. Cut turnips into wedges. Toss with fresh ginger, canola oil, salt and pepper. Drizzle with honey and roast at 400° F until tender. Rexcroft Farm (IPM)
Buttered Turnip Puree
Braised Cabbage and Turnips
Arugula Also referred to as "rocket" and considered (by some) to be an aphrodisiac, arugula has a rich, peppery taste. Raw or wilted arugula tastes fantastic on pizza. Makes for a delicious pesto, especially if you mix with basil and/or parsley.
Wilted Arugula
Arugula Pesto
Warm Bean and Arugula Salad
Hakurei Turnips  Hakurei turnips are a small, delicately flavored Japanese variety that will win over even the harshest turnip critic.  You can cook or eat raw--particularly nice shredded over a salad.  Rexcroft Farm (IPM)

Garlic-Turnip Mashed Potatoes
Sea Salt & Olive Oil Roasted Turnips
Glazed Hakurei Turnips
