Week 42 (Feb 1 - 7) TapRoot 2016

News from the farm:

Denise's Test Kitchen

Pears + alfalfa sprouts in this week's share boxes means I'll be taking these delicious pear honey sandwiches for lunch. So simple, and so tasty! I use local goat cheese and honey in place of the Philly cream cheese in the recipe. Yum!

Check out all of the health benefits of the mighty alfalfa sprout! I use them in sandwiches, rice bowls, smoothies, on top of stir fries...

Thank you to member Gerri Liberty for this delicious sounding roasted maple tomato ketchup recipe. Giddee up!

Oh my gosh--when we were in Scotland two years ago I had a side of buttered leeks with my (vegetarian) haggis one evening and I was pretty sure I had died and gone to heaven. I found this recipe soon after we came home and it's as delicious as the original from the kitchen of the Clachaig Inn. Now, if only I could find the same delicious Scottish ale...

Looking for a different snack to throw in your lunchbox/bag? My mom always has a container of these dried apple chips on her counter. After the hug hello, it's my next stop. I love them! If you've grown weary of the snack apple, you should really try the snack apple chip. Good and good for you. :)

What a beautiful beginning to the week! Hope yours is great.
