Produce List for Tuesday November 21

Posted 11/17/2017 10:54am by Natalie Kujala.

With the change in season comes a change in the TOG staff schedule. Taylor is now working in the office only on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and remotely on Wednesdays from 10am-2pm. You can still reach Taylor during her remote hours by selecting her direct extension (101) when calling into the office (technology is pretty great!), or you can return her calls by directly dialing her cell phone. Otherwise, there will still be someone in the office to take your orders on the phone from 9am-5pm Monday-Friday, and the sales@tog.coop email will be checked as usual.  

THANKSGIVING SCHEDULE: We will be open next Monday through Wednesday (11/20 to 11/22), but will be closed Thursday and Friday of next week (11/23 and 11/24). This means we will not be delivering next Friday (11/24). Please stock up for Thanksgiving on Tuesday! The list for Tuesday (11/28) will be sent out on Tuesday of next week, and resent on Friday.  

HIGHLIGHTS:  

SWEET POTATOES: With Thanksgiving just around the corner, I have to give a nod to one of my all-time favorite vegetables, the sweet potato. Whether baked whole, in fry form, in a casserole, or stuffed into a burrito, sweet potatoes are a welcome feature in any meal I prepare. I never tire of sweet potatoes- they are just so versatile, and delicious!  

GREENS LULL: This past weekend, we had temperatures nearing the single digits. Due to the last few nights of freezing temperatures, we are experiencing a lull in many of our greens. As many of our growers plant fall and winter greens in their greenhouses, tunnels, and hoop houses, salad mixes will return, and hopefully very soon. This is the time of year, though, when bunched greens and full-sized lettuce heads wind down.  

BABY LEEKS: I’ll give baby leeks another round of shout-outs as Taylor is so fond of her joke, and we’ve got these little guys in full supply. What vegetable is a sailor’s worst enemy? Leeks!  

BEETS: Great for roasting, juicing, or even raw, beets are chock full of vitamins and minerals. I love red beets roasted simply with a little salt, pepper, and olive oil. If you’re looking to juice or process red or gold beets, ask us about #2s and jumbo-XLs!  

ASIAN PEARS: It seems we sent out a false alarm yesterday about the Asian pears. They are not yet done for the season, but the grower will be quality checking more vigorously to hopefully sort any #2s out from his #1 cases. If you’re looking for Asian pears to process and don’t mind cutting out the browning in the centers, let us know and we can bring in some #2s for you.  

NON-ORGANIC, ALL NATURAL LOCAL CHICKEN EGGS: AVAILABLE IN MEDIUM, LARGE AND EXTRA-LARGE, 15 DOZEN BULK. PLEASE CALL TIM DERSTINE AT HARES VALLEY GROWERS AT 814 448 2784 FOR GREAT EGG PRICES.
