It may not be officially winter yet, but it certainly feels that way. It’s cold and snowy out, and Christmas is fast approaching. Since there are no more fresh CSA vegetables to write about, we’ve decided to spend a bit of time focusing on holiday baking.
Beets are another vegetable that hang around for the length of CSA season. You may use your beets in salads or soups. You may pickle your beets, shred your beets, roast your beets. But I'd wager that you probably haven't yet used your beets in chocolate cake. It's time for that to change.
First things first. The sweet potatoes that Farmer Nancy Hanson and her crew have grown this year are fabulous.Truly delicious. If you haven’t done so yet, go home and roast some of the sweet potatoes in your share and eat them as they are–or with butter or goat cheese or salt or whatever else you might like atop a spectacular sweet potato.
