Fall CSA – Week of November 2

Happy November, friends of Penn’s Corner! We hope you are enjoying the crisp fall and all of the delicious fruits and vegetables of the season so far. Speaking of which, one of the most exciting fall products we offer is our Thanksgiving turkeys. We are proud to be able to offer free-range, pastured, antibiotic- and hormone-free birds from Schmucker Family Farm in Emlenton, PA. We have been sourcing turkeys from this member farm for the past 6 years now and consistently get rave reviews from our customers about the quality of these birds. Give thanks to a local farm this year by serving up one of these delicious turkeys for your friends and family!

Turkeys roaming the orchard at Schmucker Family Farm

Product Details:

We are only offering one size this year, so all turkeys will be between 17 and 23 lbs, at $4.46/lb. The birds will be frozen upon pick-up and will include giblets. Please remember that these weights are our best guess. If you’d prefer one on the smaller or larger end of the weight range let us know and we will try to accommodate. Exact weights will be calculated upon pick-up.

Ordering & Pick-Up Information:

Orders for turkeys must be placed by November 10th. Email lydia@pennscorner.com with your desired pick-up location (see below) and then keep an eye out for a confirmation email, or give Lydia a call at 724-840-1672. 

Pick-up will be at either:

  • our Mt. Lebanon Farm Stand location (Bower Hill Community Church at 70 Moffett St) on Monday, November 21 from 4:30pm-6pm, or
  • Penn’s Corner facility in Lawrenceville (150 54th St.) on Tuesday, November 22 from 11am-6pm.

Thanks for your continued support of local food! Have a great week!

OG = Certified Organic, CNG = Certified Naturally Grown


Tatsoi

Grower: Blackberry Meadows

Store:  Rinse and dry the leaves before refrigerating. Wrap them in a paper towel and store them in a plastic bag.

Recipe: Chilled Braised Tatsoi Salad with Sesame-Ginger Dressing, Winter Tatsoi Salad with Butternut “Croutons”, Stir-fried Tatsoi with Crispy Tofu and Sweet & Sour Sauce

 

Sweet Potatoes

Grower: River View Dairy

Store: If stored in cool dark area, sweet potatoes will last about 1 month. Store sweet potatoes in a loosely covered bag to allow for air circulation. Do not refrigerate raw sweet potatoes, as doing so can alter their taste and flavor during cooking.

Recipe: Vegan Sweet Potato Gnocchi, Warm Roasted Sweet Potato Salad with Apple-Smoked Bacon, Roasted Sweet Potato Sandwiches with Pesto, Apple & Kale

Boltonfeta

Grower: Hidden Hills Dairy

Store: Keep feta in its brine and it will last in the refrigerator for up to 3 months.

Recipe: Honey Roasted Butternut Squash with Cranberries & Feta, Lemony Leeks with Chickpeas & Feta, Spicy Roasted Squash with Feta & Herbs

 

Green Cabbage

Grower: Blue Goose Farm

Store: Store in the refrigerator and keep it wrapped. Wrapping cabbage in plastic and storing it in the crisper section of your refrigerator limits its exposure to air flow, and thus reduces spoilage. Plastic wrap keeps external moisture out, preventing mold and rot, while helping the cabbage to maintain its internal moisture—without which, the cabbage leaves lose their firmness and begin to wilt.

Recipe: Indian Fried Cabbage with Peas, Thai Cashew Cabbage, Easy Stuffed Cabbage Casserole

Leeks

Grower: Blue Goose Farm

Store: Refrigerate in plastic bag; do not wash until ready to use.

Recipe: Leek, Fennel, Apple & Walnut Soup with Turmeric, Kohlrabi & Leek Soup, Sauteed Cabbage & Leeks, Simple Slow-Roasted Leeks

 

Brussels Sprouts

Grower: Clarion River Organics

Store: Store Brussels sprouts in a plastic bag in your refrigerator’s crisper, where they’ll keep for at least one week, if not a little longer.

Recipe: Roasted Sweet Potatoes & Brussels Sprouts, Balsamic Bacon Brussels Sprouts, Fall Shredded Brussels Sprouts Salad

 

Anjou Pears

Grower: Dawson’s Orchard

Store: Store at room temperature until ripe — to hasten ripening, place pears in a paper bag at room temperature. Once ripe, place pears in a plastic bag and refrigerate.

Recipe: Pear, Blue Cheese & Walnut Salad with Maple Vinaigrette, Roasted Beet & Pear Salad, Roasted Pear & Brussels Sprouts with Thyme & Hazelnuts

Arugula

Grower: Blackberry Meadows

Store: Rinse and dry the leaves before refrigerating. Line a plastic storage container with paper towels. Dump in the leaves in an even layer on top, add more leaves and cover until the box is full but not jam packed.

Recipe:  Arugula, Cranberry, Pecan & Feta Salad, Wilted Arugula Side, Mediterranean Quinoa Salad

Rainbow Chard

Grower: Nu Way Farm

Store: Do not wash Swiss chard before storing as the exposure to water encourages spoilage. Place chard in a plastic storage bag and wrap the bag tightly around the chard, squeezing out as much of the air from the bag as possible.

Recipe: Quinoa with Swiss Chard, Garlic & Tomatoes, Rainbow Chard Potato Chowder, Spicy Pickled Chard Stems, Orange Braised Rainbow Chard

Red Potatoes

Grower: Weeping Willow Farm

Store:  New potatoes can be stored at room temperature, but because they have not been cured, they won’t last as long as regular potatoes — several days instead of several weeks. When refrigerated, the starch will begin to convert to sugar, so if they’re chilled for very long they’ll taste sweet.

Recipe: Crispy Potato Roast, Herb Roasted Potato & Arugula Salad, Oven-Roasted Beets & Potatoes

Lettuce

Grower: Harmony Grove

Store: Make sure the lettuce is dry and store it in an open bag in your refrigerator.

Recipe: 10 3-minute DIY Salad Dressing Recipes

 

 

Green Kale

Grower: Clarion River Organics

Store: Store kale in the coldest part of your refrigerator. Wash as you’re using it. If it begins to wilt, give the ends a chop and place it in a container filled with luke warm water until the leaves are crisp. 

Recipe: Butternut & Kale Saute, Smoked Sausage, Potato & Kale Soup, Vegetarian Pumpkin & Kale Pasta Bake

 

Carrots

Grower: River View Dairy or Hostetler’s Farm

Store: Carrots will keep in the refrigerator washed, with the tops cut off for 2 to 4 weeks.

Recipe: Honey Sriracha Roasted Carrots, Carrot Cake Oatmeal Cookies, Roasted Carrots & Red Onions with Fennel & Mint

Turnips

Grower: Nu Way Farm

Store: Cut the greens off and store in a cool spot.

Recipe: Slow Cooker Turnip, Kale & Lentil Soup, Roasted Potato & Turnip Mash, Balsamic Roasted Carrots & Turnips
