So, what do you do with rutabaga?

A recipe from Chef David MacLennan of Latitude 41:

  • 4 rutabaga, peeled and diced
  • 2 turnips, peeled and diced
  • 1 ripe pear, peeled and diced
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 4 ounces butter
  • 2 teaspoons butter
  • salt and pepper

Boil the rutabaga in salted water for 10 minutes, then add turnips and pears, and cook until all are tender. Drain and let dry for a moment, then transfer to a blender or food processor. Add cream and butter and season with nutmeg, salt and pepper to taste.

Let's Talk Turkey Day

If you had the chance to stop by our stand during Local Foods Week, you got to see Chef David MacLennan, Executive Chef at Latitude 41, in action. He did a live demo with Wayward Seed, and the food went fast. Because we—and you—enjoyed him so much, we’ve asked him back to inspire us once again, this time for Thanksgiving. He’ll be cooking up a few dishes for the holidays, along with offering samples and recipes to take home. So please be sure join us at the North Market this Saturday from 9am-12pm, where Chef David will create great dishes with our fall harvest. We can’t wait to watch him work his magic–and taste it too!

Just a reminder, this is the LAST weekend for CSA share pickup. The end has officially arrived. We sure hope you’ve all enjoyed this season as much as we have—we’ve been able to extend the season to 25 weeks this year. It’s been our best season yet. We look forward to serving you next year as well. And as always, if you have any feedback on this season, please email us and share your thoughts.

Lastly—this weekend is also the weekend to pick up your Thanksgiving CSA, for those of you who signed up for a pastured turkey, fresh veggies and more! Pickup is from 8am to 12pm.

Thank you again for supporting Wayward Seed Farm. We feel incredibly fortunate to have such loyal and passionate CSA members. Stay tuned for an email with our winter schedule. You’ll still be able to find us at a few winter markets and events throughout the winter months. We hope to see you there!
