I’ll be in the kitchen today working on a couple of side dishes to add to our family potluck. Brussels sprouts, which if you don’t like them that’s OK! There’s more for me! And candied yams, I’m still trying to live up to my 2015 candied yams, for whatever reason I gotta make a different recipe for the same dish every time, oh Internet! Maybe next year it’ll be, oh bookmarks!
It’s been good to see you and exchange well wishes on our deliveries this week! We’re very grateful for your support this year, and are looking forward to a great 2022 together on our road to health and happiness!

What the F&%$ Was That?!
Where we ask (and answer) the age old question, What in the world did you just bring in my house??
This week's star is Sunchokes! What am I?! Well I'm Also Known As the Jerusalem Artichoke or Sunroot, and I taste like an artichoke heart without the fur or all that work of getting to the center!
I am a North American Native and can be slivered raw in a salad, pickled, roasted or fried. I do have to say, you ain't met me till you've tasted me chipped! I'm rich in Potassium, and high in inulin and fiber making me great for diabetics! Aren't you happy you met me?!
