Is it just us, or is it getting hot in here? Ever since the clocks have jumped forward, we’ve started to feel that tickle of spring in the air. Wishful thinking or not, we’ve got a bagful of happy food for you this week, and any week you want to eat yummily. Just let us know and let the good food times roll.
Chicken Cacciatore: A hearty helping of Stillman chickens braised in poultry stock with Valicenti tomatoes, celery root, carrots, parsnips, onion, garlic, thyme, bay leaves, salt, pepper, butter, Stony Brook roasted butternut squash seed oil, and Zoll cabernet franc.
Spaghetti & Meatballs: Our locavore spin on a classic dish, we created a rich red sauce with Valicenti red gravy, onion, carrot, pork, lard, salt and pepper, butter, thyme, and paprika, then poured it over meatballs made from ground beef, hot italian sausage, bread crumbs, shallot, onion, garlic, butter, egg, thyme, marjoram, oregano, cayenne, and salt. There was so much of it, we couldn't fit the spaghetti in! Crack open your Valicenti spaghetti w/butter and parsley and toss with sauce for an epic Lady and the Tramp style snack.
Grilled Beef Hearts and Beets: Organ meats are packed with nutrients, particularly essential minerals like iron, magnesium, and copper. To keep your heart healthy we thinly sliced grilled beef heart and combined them with iron-rich roasted beets and smothered it all in a fresh chimichurri sauce of cilantro, parsley, butternut squash seed oil, garlic, Shelburne Apple Company apple cider vinegar, onion, red chile, and honey.
Tortilla Espanola: This dynamic dish is works wonders for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and is especially tasty as a late night snack. Waltham Fields Community Farm potatoes, onions, scallions, eggs, milk, salt, pepper, nutmeg, and thyme. Sprinkle a few dashes of Alex's Ugly Sauce on top to add the perfect zip.
Porky Collard Greens: This dish is so good it's Looney Tunes (har-dee-har-har!). North Star Farm collards, onion, garlic, Stillman pork jowl, honey, apple cider vinegar, celery seed, chile flake, salt, and pepper. Bdyuh, bdyuh, bdyuh, that's all folks!
Maple Baked Beans: Old-school deliciousness featuring Baer's Best money beans, maple syrup, salt, apple cider vinegar, savory, Mary's home made ketchup, and Ken's home made mustard. The perfect compliment to porky collards.
Grilled Cabbage Salad: North Star Farms farmer Steve has had the most gigantic cabbages recently, and we've been lucky to inherit many pounds of the gorgeous heads. Because of the cold winter, they are extra sweet! This early spring salad includes grilled cabbage, grilled pears, carrots, beets, and scallions. Top it with the side of creamy dressing: Sophia's yogurt, apple cider vinegar, lemon thyme, Mexican oregano, paprika, and salt.
Spicy Sweet Potato & Apple Soup: A sweet soup with a serious kick, we combined North Star sweet potatoes, Winter Moon carrots, apples, honey, poultry stock, half & half, butter, chile flake, and salt for a vibrantly nourishing dish.
