Food Farmer Earth
A weekly series about our food and sustainable agriculture.
Veteran cookbook author Diane Morgan, whose recently released book, Roots, shares her excitement about all things roots. In this week’s Kitchen episode, Morgan demonstrates how to make two rutabaga-centric dishes: Micro-brewed Rutabagas and Sour Cream Mashed Rutabags with Fresh Dill. Both perfect for these late winter months.
There are many cold weather vegetables available at the market…cauliflower, brussel sprouts, carrots, beets, celeriac root, and kale to name a few. But who is growing these in the winter months? Are they available locally? Meet Tom DeNoble, of DeNoble’s Farm Fresh Produce. After 9/11, the flower business tanked, so DeNoble turned to farming produce, and over the years, because of the quality of his products, has built up a loyal following of customers.
In the winter, many vegetables taste sweeter, find out which ones, and why.
