Final Week of Farm Share – 2011

Hello all!

Here is the last week’s list. Sorry for the lateness!

This is the first week we have ever had Jerusalem Artichokes. Here is a little info on the “potato-like” veggie. Try using some paper towel to absorb excess moisture when you are storing them.  I’ll admit that this week is the first time I will attempt to cook with them, but I am very excited to try them. Here is one recipe you can make – it is a saute with garlic.

Another newcomer to your box is the odd-looking but flavourful root veggie, celery root. This is actually a different plant than regular celery and will need to be simmered, ideally in soup.  You can also try it in a salad preparation.

Here is the complete list of your final week’s box contents. THANK YOU to everyone for your support of the farm this year and we hope to be bringing you fresh, organic fruits and veggies again next year.

As always, if you have any feedback about the season, things you liked, things you’d like to see next year or just comments or questions – let us know!

Best,
Jennifer and the Zephyr Organics team

    Thanks so much for a wonderful season. Our family thoroughly enjoyed the produce and we loved trying new things. We can’t get enough of kale now and we never had it before this. Can’t wait for next season. We’ll be sure to tell our friends! Kim Gilbert

    Thank you to the Zephyr Organics Team for a great season!

    Our first time participating in a farm share and the experience has been great! We loved receiving the wide range of fresh organic produce every week directly from the farm! It was also fun to find recipes for some of the veggies we do not often eat. The recipes you posted on your website came in helpful! We had excellent service and the fresh produce was outstanding. Looking forward to next year’s season!
