Recipe of the Week: Roasting!

IMG 2537 2

If you're not roasting your cauliflower you simply don't know what your missing! Roasting the cauliflower brings a sweet nutty flavor. Even kids will love it - promise! Jenelle from Old Homestead Farm has gigantic (ok - maybe that's an exaggeration, but they're big!) heads of cauliflower. You have to give roasting a try - here's a great recipe for parmesan roasted cauliflower I just know you will love.

And while you've got the oven on, try roasting some delicata squash. You don't need to peel delicata sqaush - the exterior is perfectly edible. Slice it in half, scoop out the seeds and you're ready to roast. Try this recipe for Maple Roasted Delicata Squash.


Never too soon!

Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and if you'd like a local turkey for your feasting table now is the time to pre-order! Canter Hill Farm is accepting pre-orders on their birds - don't wait - before you know it they will be gone!
