Fresh, Local Produce
Courtesy of our Great Farmers
We still have plenty of fresh local produce coming in each week. Here is a sampling:
Chestnuts from Bachi Farm
Parsnips from Second Spring Farm
Savoy Cabbage from Sweeter Song Farm
See our website for a complete list of local produce.
Local farms and CSAs could face difficulty if new, burdensome rules are enacted as part of the Food Safety and Modernization Act. If the FDA adopts these rules, they will threaten basic organic practices such as the use of compost and require very expensive preventive and tracking methods.

Recipe of the Week
Gorgonzola Apple Quiche
by Sharon Flesher
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1 small onion, finely chopped
salt and pepper
1 tart shell, partially baked, cooled
½ tart-sweet apple, peeled, diced
2 oz Gorgonzola dolce, diced
2/3 cup heavy cream
2 large eggs
Center a rack in the oven and preheat to 400F.
Melt the butter in a small skillet over low heat and add the onion. Season lightly with salt and white pepper and cook until very soft but not colored, about 10 minutes; remove from heat.
Put the tart shell on a lined baking sheet. Spread the contents of the pan evenly over the bottom of the crust. Scatter the apple and Gorgonzola over the onion.
Beat the cream and eggs together, season with salt and white pepper, and pour into the tart shell.
Bake for 30 to 40 minutes or until the filling is uniformly puffed, browned and set. Transfer to a cooling rack for about 5 minutes.
