It’s preseason!

Preseason is fun, but it’s strategically different from the peak of summer. The winter produce lasts longer, and you have two weeks to use it. Here’s what we got in our first Dinner for 2 preseason 2012 box.

 

Brussels sprouts, Jerusalem artichokes, and sweet potatoes

I’ve never had Jerusalem artichokes. All the recipes I’m seeing seem to treat them like sort of like potatoes. You peel and boil them and then bake or sauté the slices. I’m thinking of making a tiny sliced sunchoke sauté to be topped with sour cream.

I love preseason. Having two weeks to work through a box is easier. And there’s usually cheese.

Check out last year’s pre-season deliveries:

Week 1

Week 2

And from 2010…

Week 1

Week 2

Week 3

This preseason is four deliveries and comes in two sizes: dinner for two at $188 and family at $248. The boxes are larger than regular weekly deliveries. There’s more information on the Farmers Fresh CSA Sign-Up page.

In order to participate in preseason or a regular season CSA starting in March, you have to join as a member for 2012, too. It’s $100 if you’re new and $60 to renew. Membership includes a member pack (which is usually a box of interesting non-perishable stuff like honey and grains) and a discount on store purchases both online and in person at the Carrollton store.
