Hello all!

A big thank you to all those who came out on Wednesday to get their fresh veggie and egg fix!  We will be open again this Saturday from 9 onwards (Wednesday we started running low around 1 and closing up around 2 - I imagine Saturday will be the same).

And just in case you need an easy, last minute gift idea this holiday season - candied pecans make GREAT gifts!  Our good friend, Whitney, sent us a delicious recipe  to use with your Pasture of Rose Creek Pecans:

  • 4 c. pecans (from The Pastures of Rose Creek, where else???)
  • 1 egg white (from a pasture raised, Rose Creek egg of course!) 
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 c. sugar
  • Preheat oven to 250
  • Combine all ingredients except for pecans in a mixing bowl and let sit for 15 minutes
  • Spread the pecans out on a cookie sheet
  • Pour the mixture over the pecans
  • Bake pecans for 1 hour (checking often!!)
  • Once you've removed the pecans from the oven immediately move the pecans around on the cookie sheet or they will stick to the pan
Here's what you'll find at the stand this week:
  • PECANS!!!!
  • Pasture Raised Eggs
  • Cranberry Almond Biscotti
  • Mixed Greens
  • Arugula
  • Eggplant
  • Turnips
  • Beets (a variety)
  • Icicle radishes
  • Kale
  • Tomatoes (they are just now starting to come in so the early bird gets the tomatoes! - all heirloom varieties...delicious cherokee purples, medium sized yellow perfection tomatoes, and bite size hawaiian currants)
Look for the signs on Colham Ferry leading to us on Rose Creek Drive starting at 9 this Saturday!  Give us a honk if you don't see us manning the stand (we're probably just workin' away in the garden or hoop house) - we'll come a runnin'.  :)

Hope to see ya there!

For the love of community and all things farming,
