Orange Carrots

From: Farm at Miller’s Crossing (Certified Organic in Hudson, NY)

You can’t beat freshly harvested spring carrots for sweetness and crunch. This time of year, we think they are best eaten raw, but whether you roast or steam you will love them. Cut the greens off to use for pesto or as you would parsley. Removing the tops will also keep your carrots crispy. More info

Green Cabbage

From: Markristo Farm (Certified Organic in Hillsdale, NY)

Bright and crisp while raw, this cruciferous vegetable mellows when cooked. A little butter and salt over gently cooked cabbage goes a long way and pairs well with roasted meats. Raw cabbage is great for a kicker winter salad — add shredded cabbage to a bowl of hearty greens, then toss in salty cheese, crunchy nuts, and cranberries or roasted beets.

Frozen Sweet Corn

From: Altobelli Farm (Integrated Pest Management in Kinderhook, NY)

Delicious in chili or corn chowder, and for something out of the ordinary just add sautéed garlic and curry. This corn is so sweet that our favorite way to prepare is to boil in the bag and add butter and salt… tastes like it’s right off the cob.

From: Hepworth Farms (Certified Organic in Milton, NY)

We like our summer squash soft and sweet. Melt butter in a pan, then add onions and cook until soft, about 4-5 minutes. Add squash, salt, pepper, and brown sugar. Stir, then cover and cook for about 20 minutes, until squash is very soft. Remove the cover to let the excess liquid cook off. More info

  1. All Jefferson, Lewis and St Lawrence Counties schools are closed until April 17. Teachers and staff are reporting to work on Monday. We will find out more from our meetings then. We may have to suspend ordering and deliveries until our school, Indian River School District, reopens.

    Let us know if you want me to email subscribers to put orders on hold or if you will be sending an email out to all subscribers in the district how orders and deliveries will be addressed.

  2. Our library is closed. And now they say delivery is cancelled . Should we cancel further? Or are youh putting shipments on hold?
