Posted 11/4/2016 7:05pm by David Paulk.

Hello Farm Friends!

Beautiful, crisp fall day tomorrow...Fresh, crisp, delicious vegetables grown just for you...Combine that with your friends and family, and maybe your best furry friend (your dog, that is), and what a nice way to spend a morning.  We have a lot of what you like:  arugula, beets, cabbage, chard, ginger, turmeric, kale, salad mix, onions, Rolled Oats!, beautiful Irish and Sweet Potatoes, radishes, spinach, turnips, AND tomatoes! For details see below and go to our Web site for simple, tasty recipes for all of our produce: www.sassafrascreekfarm.com/recipe. We look forward to seeing your bright, shining faces. :-)

We will also continue to have a large variety of vegetables (and some new surprises) through the end of the market season. Last market is 19 November, which is the Saturday before Thanksgiving Day. 

As a reminder, we take debit and credit cards. Please see recipes on our Website (www.sassafrascreekfarm.com) and photos below.

What we'll have at market...

-Arugula:  Of course, mix with salad greens, but also try on a sandwich or on top of pizza, as soon as it comes out of the oven, for a nice kick of spice and healthy greens.

- Beets, Golden, Chioggia, Red bunched and topped:  Now's your chance to try our wonderful, sweet beets. We have sweet, mild golden beets and your traditional, always good, sweet red beets and the fancy, Italian pink and white bulls-eye beets. Try them out today!

- Cabbage: Sweet and crunch perfectly-sized for two green cabbage. See recipes on our Website, including how to make homemade sauerkraut. It is super easy! www.sassafrascreekfarm.com/recipe

- Chard, Rainbow: I love this green. It has such pretty, glossy colorful leaves and it tastes so good. Chard is in the beet family. It truly is my favorite green. If you haven't tried it, well, give it a go! Prepared the same as spinach or kale. Simply saute with the tasty, crunchy stems too.

- Eggplant, Asian:  We have beautiful, sweet (not at all bitter) Asian, light purple eggplants that are wonderful on the grill, simply sauteed with other vegetables or used in some very traditional dishes such as eggplant caponata (see eggplant recipes at www.sassafrascreekfarm.com/recipe).

- Ginger, freshly-harvested, baby:  You have got to see and taste freshly-harvested ginger!  It is so pretty, pink, and has a fresh, spicy aroma. It is super tasty and easy to use...no peeling required, because it doesn't have it's brown protective coating on yet.  Don't worry about how much to buy, because you can freeze ginger, pull it out of the freezer, grate frozen and put what's left back in the freezer, repeat until gone.  None of it goes to waste!

- Jerusalem Artichokes (a.k.a., sunchokes):  they look like knobby potatoes, but taste like artichokes. Really good, peeled, sliced/diced, roasted in the oven at 350 degrees until fork tender, and sprinkled with sea salt...like artichoky potatoes. They get a little brown and crispy...yum! See soup recipe on our Web site: www.sassafrascreekfarm.com/recipe

- Kale, Curly & Lacinato:  We have plenty of two types of kale to satisfy your craving for greens!  Both tasty and can be prepared in the same way, sautee, steam, add to soups, make into chips, use in salads or juice. 

- Superstar Sweet Onions:  Yes, we have those wonderful vidalia-like sweet white onions that are wonderful raw in a salad, sauteed,  caramelized or grilled. 

- Yellow onions: Essential staple of any kitchen. Taste great and store really well in your crisper.

- Oranos Peppers, Orange & Green:  We have those sweet, orange peppers that you like so much. We also have green bell pepper type oranos peppers too!

- Rolled Oats (a.k.a., oatmeal):  That's oatmeal y'all!  Yes, we grew oats on our farm, harvested, milled and rolled them. They cook in the same amount of time as regular Quaker oats...about 10 mins tops. They are mighty tasty too!

- Irish Potatoes, German Butterball and Blue and limited quantity of Mt Rose!  We have two kinds of tasty potatoes for you to try.  Your favorite blue potatoes that are great for roasting or frying, because they turn brown and crisp so nicely. We also have the German Butterball white potato that is similar to a Yukon gold and wonderful in mashed potatoes or boiled. Frankly, they both potatoes are great for many uses. Try both! We have a mix for you!

 - Sweet Potatoes:  In addition to our sweet traditional Beauregard sweet potatoes, we have purple (Murasaki) sweet potatoes too.  Super tasty boiled and mashed, fried, and roasted; for lunch, dinner, and even breakfast! 

- Radishes, French Breakfast and Red: We have plenty of radishes to spice up your salads or just eat like the Eastern Europeans do with a little salt and butter on bread. Give it a try!

- Salad Mix! What could be better than sweet, crunchy certified organic ready to eat mix of salad greens? Well, not much except maybe the Cubs winning the World Series. :-)

- Spinach: It seems that no explanation is needed for spinach, except our's is fresh, fresh, fresh, and tasty.

- Turmeric: A member of the ginger family, turmeric is from India, and its usage there can be traced back almost four thousand years. In Southeast Asian cuisines, fresh turmeric is widely used pounded into a paste, or minced and grated into curries, rice dishes, and more. Turmeric is said to have health benefits; anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, which can potentially fight cancer and heart attacks, and it can help treat an upset stomach or heartburn.  See recipes on our Web site: www.sassafrascreekfarm.com/recipe 

 - Hakurei Turnips:  White, sweet and crunchy Japanese variety of turnips. Wonderful raw in salads or simply sauteed or steamed, along with, of course, the tasty turnip greens. 

- Tomatoes:  We have a limited quantity of great tasting heirloom tomatoes. 

Green Tomatoes: Tangy, green tomatoes that are perfect fried, made into chutney or added to a green tomato frittata. 

- Canning Tomaotes: We are selling canning tomatoes at $1/lb.  We have a couple 25 boxes and a couple 20 lb boxes.  Reserve now and pick up at tomorrow's market!  They are perfect for fresh eating, canning, making sauce. It's super, duper easy. You’ll find easy instructions at www.sassafrascreekfarm.com/recipe.
