January Produce Guide

January Produce Guide

Eating healthy always tastes right but is especially refreshing right after the Holiday season. We compiled a list of our favorite January produce with some classic uses and some new fun twists!

Butternut squash

Butternut Squash

Butternut squash should be one solid beige color, with no patches. As with most produce, you want to choose a butternut squash that is heavy for its size. To pick a squash with a lot of meat, look for one that has a large neck. Also, to avoid a lot of seeds choose one with a smaller bulb. Butternut squash soup is a classic for a reason, the vegetables with the chicken broth keep it a favorite. Chop up your squash and toss it with olive oil, garlic and salt and pepper and roast it until tender and you have a yummy roasted butternut squash. It also makes a yummy layer to roasted butternut squash lasagna.

Red Cabbage

Red Cabbage

Red cabbage is the classic ingredient in coleslaw, but we have a few other ideas of how you can eat it too. Braised red cabbage makes a yummy side dish. Shredded red cabbage and carrots with a vinaigrette make a visually stunning and simple salad. Try adding red cabbage to your sandwich for a fun twist and some crunch.

Grapefruit

Grapefruit

Grapefruit is such a yummy winter citrus we want to incorporate it any way we can into our meals! Grapefruit in the morning is good, grapefruit yogurt cake in the morning is great! Add grapefruit slices to a salad with some baked chicken for a fresh lunch. Grapefruit can be added to smoothies or you can use it to make homemade sparkling water.

Parsnips

Parsnips

Parsnips are a carrot shaped vegetable, that shine in the winter! When picking them from the store you want to choose one that is very white and not very large, this means the taste will be sweeter. You also want to make sure that your parsnip is extremely firm and not showing any signs of shriveling. Parsnips are yummy mashed or roasted.

Sweet Potatoes

Sweet Potatoes

Sweet potato casserole with lots of marshmallows is a classic dish, but there are also many other ways to enjoy them. Spice up your sweet potatoes by tossing them with chili powder, paprika, onion powder and roasting them in the oven until crispy. Or try adding them to a banana smoothie. For a quick dish, cook them in the microwave for about five minutes and top with butter, chicken and cheese or any combination you want, for a quick meal.

Potatoes

Potatoes

Potatoes are a favorite not only in the meme world, but also in the cooking world. For fluffy and flavorful mashed potatoes use Yukon gold or Russet potatoes. Russets are also good for baked potatoes and homemade French fries as well! Have leftover mashed potatoes? Add an egg and flour and make some potato pancakes! Red potatoes hold their shape which make them a perfect option for stews and potato salads.

Thankful Box with November Produce, Apples, Kale, Fennel, Beets, Brussels Sprouts, and Cauliflower

November Produce Guide

Thankful Box with November Produce, Apples, Kale, Fennel, Beets, Brussels Sprouts, and Cauliflower

November is the last month of fall. Which means it is the last month to take advantage of warm weather before December comes and winter sets in. Luckily even with the cold weather there is still a lot of produce available! We appreciate fresh so at our stores we strive to have plenty of fresh produce available all year! We’ve created a guide to some November produce along with  fun recipe ideas you are going to want to try ASAP!

red and green apples on table

Apples are an easy fresh ingredient to add to your November table! Tart apples like Fuji and Granny Smith are perfect for your caramel apples. Fuji and Golden Delicious make yummy homemade applesauce. For apple crisp, you are going to want to use both sweet and tart apples, like Granny Smith with Honey Crisp. For a quick snack, the Gala has a nice sweet, somewhat tart flavor that always tastes amazingly fresh!

kale on table

Kale is harvested after the frost in the fall, so November is the perfect month to take advantage of this healthy green and there are many ways to use it besides throwing it into your morning smoothie. Kale salads are becoming very popular.  We recommend massaging your raw kale leaves for about 30 seconds to make them a little less tough and more enjoyable in your salad. Kale can also be thrown in a pot of soup, just simmer until the kale is wilted. Sautéed kale with garlic and red chili flakes is an easy dish.

Brussels sprouts on table

Brussels sprouts are in their peak season from September to February, this is the perfect time to change your mind about these infamous vegetables. Roasted in the oven with some Parmesan, olive oil and salt, Brussels sprouts make the perfect side dish. Or shred your Brussels sprouts and throw them in with apples, pomegranate seeds, feta cheese and walnuts and you have a fresh fall salad.

cauliflower on table

Cauliflower is one of the most versatile vegetables, making it extremely easy to find a way to incorporate into your meals. Cauliflower can be treated like a potato and mashed with garlic and butter. You can also use it to replace flour in many recipes such as pizza crust and tortillas. Roasted cauliflower is a great option to add to pasta dishes or eat on its own.

fennel on table

Fennel is a plant that can be used in many ways. The bulb, leaves and seeds can all be used in cooking. The bulb is yummy sliced and baked with carrots and other seasonings or shave the bulb and add the raw shavings to a salad. The seeds are great addition to salads, pasta sauces and meat marinades. Fennel leaves make a great salad or addition to another dish like an omelet.

Beets on table

Beets are an easy way to add color to your dish! Cooked beets with orange slices, greens and a balsamic dressing is a perfect winter salad. Pickled beets are a great way to store all of the fresh beets available. Beets can also be used in cookies, ice cream, cinnamon rolls and lots of other sweet treats. No matter what kind of dish you plan to use them in beets need to be on your shopping list!

Five Tips for Fall Fresh Decor

The leaves are changing and the autumn cool breeze is here to stay. It is definitely time for fall décor. There is nothing more appealing than using fall fresh elements to cozy up your home, especially when it comes to decorating your porch or entryway. Your front porch is the first thing that welcomes you and your family home so you want to make sure it is visually appealing and inviting.

We have put together five fall porch décor tips to make your decorating festive, fresh and fun!

  1. Pumpkins, pumpkins and more pumpkins- You can never have too many pumpkins adorning your porch. There are so many varieties to use to draw everyone’s attention to your front door. Have fun with the assorted colors, shapes and sizes. Try stacking them, piling a bunch in a basket or creating a pumpkin pathway leading straight to your door. You will find so many choices at our stores. Click here to see the many varieties we carry.
  2. Mum’s the word- We won’t be silent about the love we have for mums in the fall! Using fresh flowers like mums in your fall décor is always a hit. There are so many options when decorating with mums. The array of petal colors are perfect to balance out your porch. They help add height and dimension. Play around with placing the mums in different baskets to enhance your design style. Terra cotta pots, metal pots and wood barrels are just a few great ideas.
  3. Hay isn’t just for horses- Nope it’s for your porch too! Using hay in your porch décor is not only visually appealing but can also serve as seating. Throw a fall blanket and a few pumpkins around the edge and you have yourself a fall festive bench perfect for evening chats and cider sipping.
  4. Corn is a-MAIZE-ing- Cornstalks are great for framing out your porch. Placing two on each side of your door, window or porch columns can help draw attention to where you are wanting focus. Bundle them together with jute, twine or a pop of color fall ribbon.
  5. Lastly, have fun with it- Simple fall décor full of pumpkins, hay and corn is always great but venture out a bit and try new things. Want some different colors? Paint a pumpkin or use fun colored baskets. The most important part about decorating your porch is to express yourself so your family, neighbors and friends know the mood, feeling and fun they will have when they walk through your front door.
