This Week’s Bounty: Bacon, Green Cabbage, Fresh Lamb and Easter Confections

winter salad 800x400

Along with our April Monthly Stock Up of foods that freeze well for a simple supper fix, we’re featuring Jericho Settlers Farm’s Green Cabbage at $1.40/lb (normally $1.80/lb).

This versatile vegetable makes an excellent salad when shredded with Kale, Shoots and Carrots.  Make a meal out of it by adding some slices of boiled Egg and Sunflower Seeds.  For a warming dish try Stuffed Cabbage Rolls, or make your own Egg Rolls!

Our Monthly Stock Up features the following at 10% off for the month of April:

Fresh from our Farmers and Producers

Tomato time has returned!  Long Wind Farm had these juicy fruits for us- both the big, red, round Slicing variety as well as their Little Guys– a colorful assortment of cherry tomatoes.

Russo Siberian Kale from Miskell’s Premium Organics is so sweet and tender!  Enjoy it raw in a salad, lightly macerated with lemon juice, salt and olive oil, or lightly braised.  Russo Siberian is a category that includes Red Russian, Siberian and Western Front varieties- all of the same family with super tender, sweet leaves.

Tamarack VT Sheep Farm brings us fresh Lamb: Butterflied Leg Halves, Shanks, Rib Chops, Loin Chops, Ground Lamb and Stew Meat.

Bacon from Artisan Meats of VT is freshly cured and smoked.  For breakfast, or just in time for a BST- a seasonal variation on a BLT- Bacon, Spinach and Tomato, yum!

Fresh Fish Update:  Red’s Best is experiencing some weather out on the seas but will have fresh caught fish for us this coming week: Sea Scallops, Red Fish and White Fish.  Our prices are reflective of the market price which can fluctuate due to seasonality and weather.

Red Hen Baking is making Hot Cross Buns for this Easter week- lightly sweetened rolls with currants and candied orange peel- don’t forget the Butter!
