Theme: Don't Ban Brussels!

We here at Field Goods cannot understand why people don't LOVE Brussels sprouts. Doing some quick armchair psychology, it seems like the problems all began in childhood...when parents boiled all their veggies. Don't boil these! They're perfect chopped in half and in the oven super hot (450-500 degrees) for just 5 minutes with some lemon, or are fantastic sliced up and sautéed with garlic. Totally easy, totally healthy, and totally kid friendly!

THIS IS AN ACTUAL SUBSCRIBER STORY:  "My kids gobbled them up after I quartered them, tossed in olive oil and sea salt and roasted them for 30 minutes, then tossed with toasted walnuts and a little walnut oil...Delish!" . Be sure to share your Bring Back Brussels Sprouts stories with us on Facebook, Twitter, & Instagram! We love seeing what you make.

Please Return-ip your bags and the silver freezer bags.  Dillon (pictured) is Field Goods master bag manager.  When you return your bags to your delivery location our fabulous Field Goods drivers bring them back to Dillon.  He straightens them out and gets them back in the game.  Retuning the bags lowers costs, helps the environment and creates jobs!

Fingerling Sweet Potatoes  The truth of the matter is that technically there is no such thing as a fingerling sweet potato.  What you are getting are sweet potatoes that haven't grown up yet.  As far as we are concerned these were invented by Juniper Hill Farm.  Normally farmers would cull these skinny funky shaped sweet taters from the harvest because they don't meet traditional visual standards.  Juniper Hill said the heck with that.  These are too good to waste and they are!  Incredibly sweet and moist they turn into perfect sweet potato candy. Juniper Hill Farm (CO)

Slice them in 1/2.  Drizzle with olive oil, sea salt and toss them until coated. Pre-heat oven to 375 and roast uncovered for about 30 minutes or until fork tender (stir every few minutes to prevent sticking). At last minute, drop a half stick of butter in the pan and let it melt on the potatoes.

Storage: Keep in pantry 2-3 weeks.

Red Onions Red Onions are most often used in salads and salsa because of their lovely red color which can get washed out when cooked.  

Quick Fix: Caramelize onions in 10 minutes by placing chopped onions in a dry pan over medium-high heat until dark brown and softened, which takes five minutes. Add oil and a pinch of salt and cook for five more minutes until completely soft. Throw on top of bread for a snack, or use as a garnish to just about any meat or fish. Add to pasta, soup, or pizza. Be creative! Minkus Farm (FAM)

To stop crying over your onions, see below:

1. Chill onions in the refrigerator for 30 minutes or the freezer for 15 minutes before chopping.
2. Use a sharp knife. A blunt knife will crush rather than cleanly split the cell walls of the onion, releasing more gas-     producing enzymes.
3. Light a candle near your cutting board—the flame will draw away some of the gas released by the onion. 
4. Chop onions near a fan or vent to draw away gas.  
5. Chew gum while you chop.
