For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food, for love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends.
– Ralph Waldo Emerson

In your farm share this week you’ll find rhubarb sauce that we cooked and canned this summer; we love it on yogurt, with granola, or stuffed into crepes for breakfast. I also use it like apple or cranberry sauce with poultry or pork, and will have it at our Thanksgiving table. You’ll also find 2 bars of our coconut oil soap which is gentle enough to use as facial soap or shampoo. We infused the coconut oil in calendula, and added essential oils. The dried bread can be used for your holiday stuffing or as croutons on a salad.
Here is a recipe for Arugula salad with carmelized onions and candied walnuts from Bonappetit.
Shannon Hayes who writes the blog “The Radical Homemaker” recently wrote a post on how to cook a fresh pasture raised turkey. http://theradicalhomemaker.net/grassfed-cooking-recipes-and-tips/pastured-turkey-cooking-tips/
And a stuffing recipe from Martha Stewart. http://www.marthastewart.com/337620/classic-stuffing
Wishing you a wonderful Thanksgiving.
We are grateful for your support of our farm this year. We hope that you will join us in 2016. See our 2016 Milkweed Farm CSA Application for more information
