Caramel Apple Tart


One 9 inch pie crust 

4 medium sized baking apples,(Empire, Rome or other) peeled and sliced 1/4 inch thick

1/2 cup of Fat Toad Farm Caramel

1 egg, beaten

Directions: Preheat oven to 400°F. Roll dough out into one large or two small rounds on a baking sheet. Toss together apples and caramel. Mound caramel and apples in the middle of the dough leaving a 1-inch border.

Recipe By Martha Stewart (Adapted for Intervale Food Hub Members)


  • 1 3/4 cups homemade or low-sodium store-bought chicken stock
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 pound celeriac (also called celery root), peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 pound potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 medium apple, peeled, cored, and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 medium shallot or 1/2 yellow onion, coarsely chopped

  • Bring stock, water, celeriac, potatoes, apple, shallot, bay leaf, and 1 teaspoon salt to a boil in a large pot. Cook until tender, about 10 minutes. Strain, reserving liquid; discard bay leaf. Return celeriac, potatoes, apple, and shallot to pot, and add 3/4 cup reserved cooking liquid. Coarsely mash with a potato masher.

Roasted Beet Hummus

Recipe By Salt and Lavender


  • 1 small beet

  • 2 cloves garlic

  • 1 (19 fluid ounce) can chickpeas, drained

  • Juice of 1/2 lemon

  • 2 tablespoons tahini

  • 1/3 cup olive oil

  • Pinch salt

  • Pepper, to taste



  • Pre-heat oven to 450F.

  • Line a baking dish with tin foil. Wash beet and trim the leaves/stem back (leaving an inch or two) if your beet has any. Don't trim the tail as you'll lose juice (and thus flavor) while roasting.

  • Add beet to the foil-lined baking dish and then cover with tin foil. Roast for at least 45 minutes. Check if beet is done by inserting a skewer. If it slides in easily (through the beet's centre), it's done.

  • Remove from oven and let cool for 5-10 minutes.

  • When the beet is cooling, you can get the hummus going. Add the chickpeas, garlic, lemon juice, tahini, salt, and pepper. Blend on high and slowly drizzle in olive oil. Blend until smooth (this may take a few minutes).

  • Once beet has cooled for a few minutes, peel it (I used a knife). Cut beet into a few chunks and place into food processor. Blend on high until it's smooth and mixed together.

  • Serve chilled with an extra drizzle of olive oil if desired.

Apple Crisp

Published in on October, 2007

Intervale Food Hub Note: This recipe calls for 3 pounds of apples, but still works well if you scale down for a smaller pan size! If you love the topping, make just as much but decrease the amount of apples. 


  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour, (spooned and leveled)
  • 1/4 cup packed light-brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter, cold, cut into small cubes
  • 1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats (not quick-cooking)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3 pounds apples, such as Empire, Gala, or Braeburn, peeled, cored, and cut into 1/2-inch chunks


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a large bowl, mix together flour, brown sugar, salt, and 2 tablespoons granulated sugar. Cut butter into flour, using a pastry blender or two knives, until mixture is the texture of coarse meal. Add oats, and use your hands to toss and squeeze mixture until large, moist clumps form. Transfer to freezer to chill while you prepare apples.

  2. In another large bowl, toss apples with lemon juice, cinnamon, and remaining 1/2 cup granulated sugar. Transfer to a shallow 2-quart baking dish, and sprinkle with topping mixture. Place baking dish on a rimmed baking sheet, and bake until golden and bubbling, 55 to 65 minutes. Let cool 10 minutes before serving.

30-Minute Shepherd's Pie

Adapted from the recipe published by Rachel Ray at


For Mashed Potatoes:

  • 1-2 pounds potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 2 tablespoons butter, cream cheese, cheddar cheese, etc., if you want to add this to your mashed potatoes
  • 1/2 cup milk or cream, or for a lighter version substitute vegetable or chicken broth
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

For Filling:

  • Extra-virgin olive oil and/or butter
  • 1 pound ground beef or ground lamb
  • Any mix of diced vegetables will do well! We like to add some color with carrots. Adding diced sweet potatoes, parsnips, celery root, or turnips work well, too! Carrots, peeled and chopped. Frozen vegetables such as peas or corn work well if you have them, too.
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire, eyeball it
  • frozen vegetables (peas or corn work well if you have them)
  • 1 teaspoon sweet paprika
  • Optional: 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves, and shredded cheddar cheese for topping.


  1. Boil potatoes in salted water until tender, about 12 minutes. Drain potatoes and pour them into a bowl. Add the cream into potatoes and mash until potatoes are almost smooth.
  2. While potatoes boil, preheat a large skillet over medium high heat. Add oil to hot pan with beef or lamb. Season meat with salt and pepper. Brown and crumble meat for 3 or 4 minutes. If you are using lamb and the pan is fatty, spoon away some of the drippings.
  3. Vegetables can be sautéed in a pan until tender, or steamed. 
  4. Preheat broiler to high. Fill a small rectangular casserole with vegetable mixture and browned meat. Spoon potatoes over evenly. Broil 6 to 8 inches from the heat until potatoes are evenly browned. Top casserole dish with chopped parsley & cheese and serve.


Celery Root, Carrot, and Potato Gratin

Published by Paul Cunningham in on December 2015

During the holidays, Paul Cunningham of Henne Kirkeby Kro likes nothing more than a comforting vegetable gratin, and here he keeps it simple: Potatoes, carrots, and celery root are seasoned with thyme and fresh bay leaves and then simmered in cream before getting baked under a layer of bubbling Gruyère and bread crumbs.


2 cups heavy cream
8 tbsp. unsalted butter
4 fresh bay leaves
8 cloves garlic, peeled and crushed
4 large carrots, peeled and cut crosswise into 1⁄4-inch-thick slices
4 large russet potatoes, peeled and cut crosswise into 1⁄4-inch-thick slices
1 large yellow onion, thinly sliced lenghwise
1 small celery root, peeled and cut crosswise into 1⁄4-inch-thick slices
2 tbsp. thyme leaves
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
5 oz. Gruyère cheese
2 cups fresh bread crumbs


  1. Heat the oven to 350°. In a large saucepan, heat the cream with the butter and bay leaves over medium-high. Stir in the garlic, carrots, potatoes, onion, and celery root and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to maintain a steady simmer and cook, stirring gently, until tender but not breaking, about 18 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat, stir in the thyme, and scrape into a 3-qt. round baking dish. Season the gratin with salt and pepper.
  2. Using a box grater, grate the Gruyère into a medium bowl and then toss with the bread crumbs. Sprinkle the cheese and bread crumbs over the vegetables and bake until the topping is golden brown and the gratin is bubbling in the center, about 30 minutes.



Perfect Grass-Fed Beef Burgers

Adding onion delivers moisture; forming thicker patties prevents them from cooking too fast and drying out. Both steps are key when working with grass-fed ground beef.

1 small onion, coarsely grated
1½ pound grass-fed ground beef
1¼ teaspoon kosher salt, plus more
½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, plus more
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
Hamburger buns and desired toppings (for serving)

*Top off with Shelburne Cheddar and microgreens from this week's basket!

Using your hands, gently mix onion, beef, 1¼ tsp. salt, and ½ tsp. pepper in a medium bowl. Gently shape into four 1½”-thick patties (loosely formed patties will be more succulent).
Heat oil in a large skillet, preferably cast iron, over medium-high heat. Season patties with salt and pepper, place in skillet, and immediately reduce heat to medium. Cook 4–6 minutes per side for medium-rare. Serve on buns with desired toppings.

Patties can be formed 4 hours ahead. Cover and chill.
