Posted 10/6/2017 6:14pm by David Paulk.

Hello Farm Friends!

The season is rushing into fall with the cool nights and warm sunny days.  Here on the farm we've been super busy harvesting (more) sweet potatoes, fall seasoned crops and planting cover crops for the winter months.  We hope to see you tomorrow at the market and have a few new things this week.  

- Spinach (New!)  BLS (Big Leaf Spinach).  First cutting. Ideal for cooking.  We think you'll like it.  

- Sweet Potatoes (New!):  Murasaki variety.  Purple on the outside, white on the inside.  

Salad Mix:  Yes, we have ready to eat, tasty salad mix!

- Sweet Potatoes, Beauregard:  Ye ask and ye shall receive your favorite sweet potatoes!

- Kale, Curly & Lacinato:  Great sauteed, braised, in soups, as chips or in smoothies. Lacinato Kale is also known as "Dino" or "Tuscan" Kale.

- Fresh Ginger: what you've all been asking for is finally here!  Freshly harvest ginger has no tough skin and doesn't need to be peel before grating. Naturally sweet and aromatic.  Simply grate and add to any vegetable dish. Recipes at www.sassafrascreekfarm.com/recipes.

- Fresh Turmeric:  The queen of natural anti-inflammatory foods is here!  Bright orange and tasty grated into salads or added to vegetable dishes. Key ingredient in curries. Add to smoothies for an anti-inflammatory bonus. 

- Arugula:  We've got that spicy green you crave!  Great mixed with other greens as a bed to grilled salmon or beets and goat cheese. Yum!

- Beet:  Just harvested Golden and Red beets.  Great either boiled or roasted, like a potato. Wonderful on a bed of arugula with goat cheese and walnuts.

- Rainbow Chard:  We have an excellent supply of delicious rainbow chard!  Saute like you would kale and enjoy!  

- Whole Wheat Flour: Yes, we grew wheat on our farm and have milled it into flour! That's 2-lb bags of certified organic whole wheat flour!

- Garlic:  Fresh garlic is so aromatic and so easy to mince! Try some today!

- Romaine Head Lettuce:   Our favorite lettuce is back and we have a good supply for this market.  

- Rolled Oats (Oatmeal):  We have 1.8-lb bags of rolled oats (oatmeal), from oats grown on our farm. They have a wonderful nutty flavor and are certified organic, like all of our produce! Cook them as you would Quaker oatmeal. 2:1 ratio of water to oats; cook time 10 -15 mins or until desired consistency.

- Red Onions:  Freshly harvested sweet red onions that are so versatile and great in any dish. Delicious roasted on the grill over indirect heat.

- Super Sweet Superstar Onions:  If you've been to our stand over the years, then you know these super sweet onions!  They are large, white and very similar to vidalia onions. They are very good raw on burgers, in salads, or sauteed until caramalized. Make sure you cook them on med-low heat, because the sugars in them can burn if too hot.

- Espelette Peppers: delicious spicy, slightly smoky, and sweet! Beautiful deep red peppers that are delicious raw, cooked, or dried and then ground into paprika powder. They hail from the Basque region of France and are primarily grown for a sweet, hot paprika. You can regulate the heat level by how many seeds you leave in.  If you leave all seeds in, it's about jalapeno hot. Great in salsa!  Freeze and use over the winter in chili!

- Sweet Orange Peppers:  Oranos peppers are bright orange, shiny and sweet. So, good raw or grilled!  They freeze really well!  Freeze whole and enjoy sauteed in the middle of winter.

- Shishito Peppers:  Japanese appetizer peppers that are so delicious and easy to prepare. Just toss the whole pint of peppers into a skillet of olive oil, on medium heat; saute until they shrivel and char, just slightly. Drain peppers onto a paper towel and then plate up with a sprinkle of sea salt, served with an ice cold beer or dry white wine. Eat the whole pepper, except stem. Maybe 1 in 30 have some very mild heat.  Enjoy!

- Potatoes, Red, Blue, and German Butterball:  Four varieties of tasty irish potatoes.  The blue potatoes are blue inside and out, full of anti-oxidants, and great for making crispy fries or roasting.  German Butterballs are a creamy yellow/white and great for boiling, roasting or making mashed potates. And we have our delicious Mountain Rose (red) potatoes, which are absolutely delicious and very versatile.

- Radishes:  Radishes, the gateway vegetable to shopping regularly at the farmer's market.  Delicious, a little spicy, and local.  Yum!

-  Zucchini :  The squash looks excellent and we have a plentiful supply.  

- Cherry Tomatoes:  We have your favorite sweet, red cherry tomatoes.   

- Tomatoes, Red Slicers:  We have traditional, very tasty red hybrid slicing tomatoes. 

Don't worry about having cash at our stand, since we take credit, debit and SNAP cards.

The market has additional vegetable vendors, as well as beef, pork, chicken, eggs, and baked goods. 

So, we hope to see you, your friends and family members on Saturday (BAE parking lot, 9am - 1pm).
