Ginger-Brown Sugar Carrots

I cooked a favorite chicken dish for dinner the other night, and wanted a zesty vegetable to go alongside it. There, on the spot, I made up this one: butter-ginger-brown sugar carrots. Here’s how: 4 carrots, peeled and sliced into rounds 1 Tablespoon butter 1/2-inch piece of ginger, peeled 1-2 Tablespoons brown sugar (to taste) […]

Radish Recipes

I walked into a friend’s kitchen for a potluck dinner recently and on the table was a beautiful plate of fresh radishes (from 1000 Stone Farm, of course!), with their brilliant red bulbs grouped together and their long luscious green tops fanned out around them. That night, we dipped them in some nearby Thai peanut […]

Maple Glazed Carrots

Last week we were graced with an abundance of carrots in our Winter CSA shares: earthy and sweet. Carrots are an often overlooked vegetable. But what would a hearty beef stew or a creamy, yet biting, coleslaw be without them? They’re excellent shaved into salads and cut into thick coins for soups. Carrots add an […]

Stuffed Acorn Squash

I’ve said it before: I love those winter squashes. Baking them and serving with some melted butter (or a drizzle of oil) is simple, yet delicious. But wait, what’s this? Squashes include a hollowed out space; a cup just waiting to be filled. What should we put in this cup? I have so many ideas! […]

Spaghetti Squash Pasta

Spaghetti squash can be daunting: It’s big. It’s brightly colored. It claims to be pasta. It turns out, it’s easy to cook and fun to eat. Just don’t expect a hearty Italian dish to be the same with squash as it would with pasta. Go into this meal with an open mind, and I think […]

Roasted Beet Salad

Roasting fall vegetables brings out their sweetness, and it’s my favorite way to prepare beets. Once roasted, these beets are great on their own, tossed in a vinaigrette, or sparkling like jewels in your favorite green salad. They can also adorn pizzas or make amazing additions to frittatas as well. On weekend mornings, we shred […]

Brussels Sprouts: Lemon-Garlic Saute

At 1,000 Stone Farm, we love eating in season. And Fall is one of my favorite seasons to eat my way through! The nutty squashes baked with plenty of butter, hearty greens braised alongside a favorite main dish, sweet carrots, and creamy potatoes are just a few of my favorites. But perhaps my all-time favorite […]
