Red House Farm CSA Pickup #1 Oct 16

 

 

Greetings and thanks for supporting local food production in Boulder!  

There was a great response to the CSA and unfortunately, there were more people interested than memberships available..if there is a time when you cannot pick up your share, let us know and we can donate it to someone else.  

Also, if there are items that you do not want, you can leave them on the trade table as well as pick up items on the table that you would like more of.  

We have included only one dozen eggs in the box, but use the coupon to get another dozen from the black fridge before the next pickup.  Pickups will be every other Friday.  Please return egg cartons and box at the next pickup.  Thanks.

Make sure to grab a PUMPKIN from the front lawn!  Some of these are real monsters….remember, lift with your legs.  These are Howden pumpkins- good keepers and eaters as well as Jack-O-Lanterns….check out this recipe for SPICY PUMPKIN BREAD…….

 

 

……………………………………………………………..

Cook time 1 hr 30 min/ready in 1 hr 50 min

    * 5 cups all-purpose flour

    * 3 cups sugar

    * 1 cup packed brown sugar

    * 1 tablespoon baking soda

    * 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon

    * 2 teaspoons ground nutmeg

    * 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cloves

    * 1 (29 ounce) can solid pack pumpkin

    * 1 cup vegetable oil

    * 4 eggs, lightly beaten

    * 1/2 teaspoon rum extract or vanilla extract

    * 2 cups coarsely chopped pecans

 

 

DIRECTIONS

 

   1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugars, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves. In another bowl, combine the pumpkin, oil, eggs and extract; stir into the dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in pecans.

   2. Pour into three greased 8-in. x 4-in. x 2-in. loaf pans. Bake at 325 degrees F for 1-1/2 hours or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks.

There is a long tradition of cooperative food projects in Boulder….Donna Jean Wilson told me the story of how about 60 years ago, 10 families would each raise a cow.  Every month, a family would butchertheirs at Ivan Lyman’s place and everyone would share the cuts.  This was in the days before folks had freezers so a whole cow would be too much for any single family.  Red House Farm is trying to help foster that pioneer spirit of cooperation….Tell us ideas you have.

 

Brynn could use some help before and the day of the pickup…let her know if you want to help.

Remember, we will be showing “FRESH”,a new movie about sustainable agriculture this Saturday at 7:30 in the Barn…bring a warm blanket and a mug for hot chocolate!

We may be doing an apple cider pressing next week…we’ll let you know!

We just found out we were successful in a grant to create a community tool-share program....Red House Farm will provide the tools and workshop for folks that do not have their own…details to follow….

We were also successful in getting a USDA grant to help pay for a solar grid-intertie system….Your CSA will be partially powered by renewable energy!
