Pitchfork Farm, Burlington VT

Pitchfork Farm, Burlington VT

Hi there!

We are so excited to share this week's food with you! Both of our root veggie offerings were grown right here at the Intervale and add rich color and nutrition to your plate this week. Yellow onions and Enterprise apples are versatile additions that can bring sweetness and complexity to any dish and, while they're fine on the counter, store much better in the fridge. This week's shiitake mushrooms are delicious and packed with rich, earthy umami flavors that deepen when sauteed, and pair very well with bok choy, a vibrant Chinese cabbage. Ready to cook? Scroll down for our suggested recipes!

Want to kiss the winter blues goodbye? Us too. We're kicking out the cold and bringing the backyard barbecue indoors with this week's recipe collection. Tangy BBQ drumsticks will have you remembering picnics by the lake and sunshine on your shoulders. Bring some greens to your plate with a bok choy and mushroom stir-fry, and finish off your meal with a roasted beet and apple slaw that tastes even better the next day. And may we recommend this deliciously simple apple crisp recipe for a cozy dessert? Your belly will thank you later.
