CSA - Week 6

What's in your share this week? -  taprootfarms.ca/shares

Josh posted this picture. This is the pigs coming out of the bush to get their morning meal.

Farm Notes:


Seeds are arriving!!! A true sign that spring is right around the corner. 😀

Share recipe inspiration:

Radish and Peas - Kim says she cooks this a lot less than it says to, and adds the radish at the end so it's just warm, but still crunchy.


A member shared her super easy and delicious cabbage recipe - Thanks!

Stir-Fried Spicy Cabbage:
Heat skillet over high heat, add some extra virgin olive oil, add chopped cabbage.  Stir-fry it until it is crisp-tender and charred in some spots, and then add soy sauce and hot sauce.
Top it with a couple of fried eggs and call it dinner! 
Absolutely amazing flavour and great simple meal.
Another member sent us this recipe for Julienned Veggie Salad
Thought I'd pass on a recipe I came up with for a julienned vegetable salad for carrots, and of the cabbages, celeriac, leeks etc.  Any vegetable really as long as not starchy. 

1/2 cup white vinegar
1/2 cup corn or veg oil
3 TBSP red wine vinegar
3/4 TBSP sesame oil
1/2 TBSP Worcestershire
1 TBSP soy sauce
1 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
Half dozen turns fresh ground pepper.

After browning/roasting either sesame seeds, slivered almonds or pine
nuts in a pan.....once they start to turn colour put them in a bowl to cool.

Whisk together ingredients for dressing so blended, and add to hot pan
for about a minute, stirring constantly until you see the first

Pour immediately over whatever raw root veggies you have already
roasted and julienned. Stir to blend and infuse
flavours for about a minute. Let rest uncovered for five minutes and
Or, let rest for half hour to cool and refrigerate. The salad becomes
better with time as flavours blend. Because there is vinegar, salad
will stay fresh and safe for 4-5 days.


Thanks you so much to those who are helping to inspire us in what to cook for supper :)


Snow clearing!

The tunnels need to have the snow shoveled away from the bottom so the snow that sticks and then falls off the top has somewhere to go.

Otherwise the snow load would bend or break the metal.

Have a great week!
