Happy holidays, CSA friends! Speaking of holidays, we will be closed Monday, 12/25, and Monday, 1/1/18, in the name of rest + festivity! The holidays will not effect our normal CSA schedule; so if you pick up your box in Chestertown, Elkton, or Newark, expect to do the same on both Wednesdays (12/27 & 12/3), as usual.
We are also approaching the Winter Solstice this coming Thursday! The first day of winter and shortest amount of the daylight in the year, from then on our days will be growing longer…an inspiring thought, so enjoy the darkness while it lasts!
We hope you enjoy this share. Here are some fun holiday recipe ideas:
Yottam Ottolenghi’s Caramelized Garlic Tart
