This Week’s Harvest: Handmade Slab Bacon, Hake Fillets, Butterflied Lamb Leg

Fish Share:
This week’s fish share is Hake. If you have bought Scrod – then you have bought Hake. It is much like Cod – light, flaky and delicately flavored especially when fresh.

A nice light alternative if you are still recovering from all the feasting of last week!!!

Lamb:
We have some beautiful cuts of lamb available this week. Amazing half-butterflied lamb legs that are perfect for marinading and baking to perfection.

Soups:
Joe of Screamin Ridge is bringing us two new soups – in case you are just all cooked out after all the relations leave! Lentil Soup and Beef Chili. And if you are slightly more ambitious – try using Joe’s vegetable or chicken stock to make up a quick fresh soup in just minutes. This is definitely one of our pantry standards in our house.

Pork:
Vermont Salumi slab bacon is back this week. Cube it, slice it, and fry it up – alone or in soups, salads, or sandwiches it really adds something special.

As always Jason and his brother at Vermont Artisan Meats has a great selections of roasts and chops that are the definition of comfort food. Also their bacon has taken center stage – dry rubbed and sliced just right. All of this from local pigs running around on pasture and bedded down for the winter on hay packs.
