Mark has lots of treats in store for you for our Halloween CSA share.

We are gauging interest for Holiday trees and wreaths – if you are interested email me with TREE or WREATH  or TREE/WREATH in subject.

Don’t forget to order your holiday meats – Grass-fed bison roasts are now available to order online, along with Polyface Turkeys. Additional holiday meats are available (pork, lamb) – email for pricing.  After ordering, let us know when you want it – Thanksgiving or Winter holiday.

MEAT

  • Rappahannock River Oysters/Clams – Check our facebook group for the video I made on how to open them, but please wear gloves.  Here are some recipe suggestions Grill themOven roast or try one of these . Please visit one of Rappahannock’s amazing restaurants – Rappahannock Oyster Bar at  Union Market is your closest. My favorite is Merroir,, which is out at the Marina on the Northern Neck, where Rappahannock has their operation. Its a tiny tasting room, with lot of outside seating, grills and a fabulous view. Or visit Richmond’s Rappahannock. Clams – Here’s how to roast, grill, steam and chowder them.

BREAD

  • Prairie Grain Pumpkin Raisin – this is Mark’s favorite. It makes an amazing french toast. We stuff it with plain chevre or mascarpone and drizzle with maple syrup. Its also great grilled, or put in the toaster oven and slathered with butter.

CHEESE

  • Pimento – this is ridiculously good and  yes I ate it with a spoon. Here’s 14 other ways to eat it.

BREAD – Billy Bread – rustic sourdough – this bread is delicious fresh, but it will get hard. You can cut it and freeze it. Don’t get sad if your Billy Bread gets hard – here are a bunch of amazing ways to use it. Hard bread is an essential ingredient in many delicious dishes where soft bread just doesn’t work.

Holiday Meats:

I have Polyface turkeys up for pre-order in the Meat section of the CSA store ($20 depost/5.75 lb) and will shortly have additional holiday meat offerings available (bison roast, lamb, oysters/clams). Be thinking what you want!
