The Cumming Harvest:  Newsletter - November 14, 2012


Thanksgiving Green Salad
1 cup raspberries
1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
2/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
10 cups mesclun greens (online)
2 medium fennel bulbs, thinly sliced
2 cups dried cranberries
8 clementines or 4 to 5 oranges, peeled and separated into segments
1 cup spiced pecans or caramelized walnuts

To make vinaigrette, combine raspberries, balsamic vinegar and olive oil in a blender. Mix until smooth.

Using a very large salad bowl, gently toss the mesclun greens, fennel and cranberries. Add the clementines or oranges. Just before serving, add the spiced pecans and toss with just enough raspberry vinaigrette to lightly coat the greens. Serve immediately.

Swiss Chard Gratan
2 bunches Swiss chard leaves, chopped (about 8 cups packed)
1 cup water
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon unsalted butter, more for the baking dish
1 cup low fat milk
2 tablespoons unbleached white flour
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup grated Comté or Parmesan cheese, divided
1 tablespoon whole wheat bread crumbs

Preheat oven to 350°F. Place chard leaves in a saucepan with the water and cook over medium heat until leaves are just tender, 3 to 4 minutes. Drain, reserving 1/4 cup of the cooking liquid. Set chard aside. In the same saucepan, heat olive oil and butter over medium heat. When butter has melted, whisk in the flour until blended. Whisk constantly for 1 minute. Slowly whisk in the milk and reserved cooking liquid. Continue cooking and stirring until the sauce thickens, 3 to 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and stir in half of the grated cheese. Stir in the cooked chard and transfer to a buttered 9×9-inch baking dish. Sprinkle with remaining cheese and breadcrumbs. Bake for 20 minutes or until hot and bubbling. Serve immediately.

ALFN Local Food Club:  Maison Terre's Tea Room and Herb Shop

So I have good news and bad news. Which to start with? Twenty-five years of living hasn’t yet solved this quandary, and I wonder if it ever will.
Bad news, just because it’s shorter: the Market is closing for the week (not for good) tomorrow morning. You have less than a day to get your orders in for this Saturday-Monday! They make a mean pair. And then it’s Thanksgiving, and then what will you do?
THE Good News, because there is no other: Maison Terre has gone brick-and-mortar, i.e., opened up the Maison Terre Tea Room and Herb Shop. They’ll be serving up hot teas, gourmet lunches, organic herbs, and other fantastic Maison Terre’esque products. Check out their website for more information! I encourage you to go warm yourself with a “cuppa” (as the U.K. says, or so I’ve heard) and a Curry Chicken Salad Sandwhich with Creamy Tomato Soup. Just for example…

Plattsburgh Online Ordering:  Brussels Sprouts

From Rehoboth Homestead: I just checked the brussels sprouts, and have 20 stalks that I will harvest. The sprouts are smaller than I wanted, so I reduced the price from $6 down to $4. If you already placed your order, just email me and I’ll adjust your order.
