Week 3 Fall

Posted 9/22/2014 6:57am by Gregg Keckler.

Dear Folks,

 We hope you are enjoying early fall.  We still have a lot of summer vegetables, but we are starting to move into our fall things. 

This week we will be giving cider.  Our cider is natural unpasteurized cider.  It has the best flavor and the flavor changes every week depending on the type of apples that we put in.  We like to mix the varieties with some sweet and mostly tart apples in the mix.  Taste it and see! 

One word about unpasteurized cider.  --

If you would like to pasteurize it, you can do it quite easily by boiling the cider for several minutes.  If you do not use all the cider within  a week and it begins to "turn" (meaning it gets a zippy sense - like soda)  you can drink  it like that - turned cider is also very good and has a completely different flavor or you can pasteurize it by boiling it.  When you boil it, it will go back to sweet cider.

Cider should be refrigerated as soon as possible.  It will turn quicker if you leave it set out.

We are picking a lot of green beans right now.  Oliver and Juan picked 10 banana boxes full of green beans on Friday.  So we are stocked.  Enjoy the kale and hot peppers!  I have been eating the bruised nectarines and they are delicious!  We will again be giving you a mystery item.  It is only a mystery because we have so many "little bis of this and little bit of that".  It is not that you will find a vegetable that you do not know.

We still have a lot of items on the store and I am always updating with new things. Check it out!  You can order items from the store and add them to your order and pay right away with your credit card.  Or you can click invoice and save your bill until the end of the session to pay all at once.

Have a great week!

Gregg, Louise, and Oliver Keckler
