February 11th Weekly Example Box

FFCSA Offerings 2/11/2019 - The Surprise Holiday!

Dear Full Farm CSA Members,
Did you know that February is also home to one of (in my opinion) the most culinarily underappreciated holidays? - Presidents' Day! I make a cherry pie for George Washington every year (chopping down the cherry tree never happened - but cherries were his favorite fruit!), and many of our presidents had fun favorite dishes that would be fun to try this week!
I think we can safely pass over James Garfield's legendary recipe for Squirrel Soup, but this link lists quite a few modern ideas, such as Lamb Shoulder that Washington loved - or FDR's Hot Dogs
Turnips are back in the store and would make an excellent side for any of the above, as well as fancy Potatoes - this recipe specifically calls for Desiree potatoes! https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/next-level-dauphinoise-potatoes 
For dessert, try a favorite of James Madison's (or, well, a favorite of nearly everybody probably) - ice cream! This recipe is specifically written for Raw Milk and Raw Cream, and has an option to include some of our tasty Eggshttps://ouroneacrefarm.com/homemade-raw-milk-ice-cream-bases/ And if you don't have an ice cream maker, no worries! Here is a method to help. https://www.thekitchn.com/how-to-make-ice-cream-without-124210 
Bon appétit!
