Fresh This Week: January 7
Elderberry Syrup and Harbison specials, The Tierra Farms and Boxford Bakery partnership, Waitsfield Common Bread, Red’s Best Seafood and Fresh Pork
Here are some Meal Suggestions
Simple and Delicious Pairings
VEGAN WALNUT MUSHROOM BOLOGNESE Just because this pasta dish is vegetarian, does not mean that it is not rich and full of flavor. With toasted walnuts, mushrooms and lots of herbs, this sauce rivals a traditional meaty bolognese and is a great addition to any pasta.
CREAMY CHICKEN & MUSHROOM CASSEROLE This dish requires a few steps, but it will remind you of grandmother’s cooking and is a wonderful meal to reheat for lunch and dinner. There’s lots of room for adding whatever vegetables, grain and poultry you have available.
GROUND BEEF CABBAGE ROLLS We have beautiful green cabbage from River Berry Farm, and ground beef is on sale this week, so give cabbage rolls a try! Don’t worry- these are no dainty vegetable rolls; they are filled with ground beef and stewed in delicious tomato sauce, making it a satisfying, unique wintertime meal.
Have you tried…
Organic Ancient Grains Hot Cereal Made with organic oats, spelt, rye and heritage wheat, this nutritious and fiber rich cereal from Maine Grains is a quick and nourishing way to start your day. You can keep it simple, just cooking with water, or you can doll it up with milk, dried fruit, mixed nuts and maple syrup.
New & Noteworthy (this will link to the Just In section of the website)
We still have organic dried fruits and nuts from Tierra Farms! In case you missed our announcement, Tierra Farms has discontinued their retail packaging line and partnered with Boxford Bakehouse to pack all of their exceptionally sourced fruits and nuts. They are the same thoughtfully sourced, quality nuts, seeds, dried fruits and more, simply with a different package and label. Boxford Bakehouse is prioritizing a transition to 100% recyclable packaging and working toward getting their Kosher certification this year, and we will let you know as soon as that happens.
Elderberry syrup from Wild Branch Foods will be featured throughout January, so now is the perfect time to stock up on this delicious, immune boosting elixir.
Champlain Orchards has Cortland, Macintosh, Mutsu/ Crispin & Pink Lady apples for us this week.
These cold temperatures are making it difficult for our farmers to harvest greens for us, but Jericho Settlers has a nice crop of baby pac choi this week.
MEAT & FISH
Red’s Best Seafood is back with fresh caught white fish filet, as well as skate filets.
We also have Fresh Pork coming in from Snug Valley Farm. We have ribs you can throw in the oven, chops you can cook up real quick and roasts for all your shredding needs.
In addition to featuring Little Hosmer Cheese and Cabot Clothbound Cheddar, Cellars at Jasper Hill will be offering Harbison Cheese on sale as well.
Last but not least, Red Hen Bakery is supersizing their Waitsfield Common Bread. In addition to their one pound loaf, they are now offering a two pound sliced loaf for those who enjoy this very uncommon “common” bread.
