Guess What!? We will be at the Fulton Street Farmers Market (click the link for directions from your house) THIS weekend! Save the date, Saturday April 16th! We will have  CSA shares for sale. CSA shares are “Community Supported Agriculture” you front the farmer some money to help him grow what you like to eat…fresh, local, nutritious, real food. Each week or whatever your agreement you come to the market or wherever the farmer indicates and you pick up a pre-specified amount of fresh, locally grown food items. You know the guy directly who is growing your food. That makes me feel safe.

 

A "ramp" breaking through the snow in Spring Time

Mary Ann and her “shroom krew” have been out foraging far and wide for local samples of gourmet fare that may seem quite exotic to you. She’ll have plenty of examples of the foraging stash she hunted down. RAMPS ARE BACK!!!! That garlicky onion you love to love. They are foraging every day now so stop by the market on Saturday and inquire about joining Mary Ann on a foraging expedition and learn about when the is starting~

Kim Carson’s Yummy Michigan Winter Veggie Soup

I like to grill all the veggies on a hot electric grill in some extra virgin coconut oil. I do not grill the spinach or chard leaves  I just cut them in strips and add them at the end, after cooking, when they are in a serving bowl.

A little salt and pepper is really all you need for seasoning. The home made chicken broth compliments the flavor of the various winter root vegetables, mushroom and other various veggies. If you wish to add 3.5-4 ounces of meat or chicken you may do so. Sometimes I do sometimes I do not. It’s all up to you. Check out Kim’s demo video~
