Along with busy days and festive nights, December marks the arrival of winter as evidenced by our first flakes of snow this week. So, come in from the cold and warm up with a comforting winter supper starring risotto crafted with wild mushrooms and our own housemade duxelles, plus crisp Gruyère cheese bread, a beautiful Bordeaux red blend wine and all the ingredients for a fruit crisp dessert. Accompanied by winter squash, blueberry jam and even Rosalba pink radicchio, this box will do wonders to ward off the continuing chill.
Here are a few recipe ideas for the week:
Crafted with wild mushrooms and duxelles, this creamy recipe is a favorite here at the farm on chilly evenings.
Pink Radicchio Salad with Red Pears
This winter salad is incredibly crisp and colorful.
Roasted Winter Squash
Buttery and incredibly delicious, Acorn squash is wonderful roasted with just a touch of brown sugar.
This dish can’t be beat for presentation, served whole and topped with olive oil and sea salt.
Braised Turnips & Carrots
Simmered in rich chicken stock, this dish is finished with lemon juice and thyme for fresh appeal.
Delicious with either apples, pears or a combination of both: Simply toss the fruit with cornstarch and sugar, then sprinkle with the topping from this week’s box.
