Fragrant, fresh fennel has now joined the share this week, just in time for the holidays. Fennel adds a flavorful touch to a host of recipes and is commonly used in soups, salads, and marinades. Nutritionally, fennel is high in vitamin A, calcium, potassium and iron. Medicinally fennel is an excellent digestive aid and antispasmodic. The entire plant is edible from the feathery leaves to the bulb, so get the most out of this healthful crop.
For a simple, warm recipe for this holiday season try the Apple Fennel Soup!
Remember you can get your final unique and handmade gifts as well as Sweetwater Farm Stand Gift Certificates at the Sunday Market from 12:00-4:00pm as well as fresh vegetables and fruits for your family dinners.
A friendly remind that if you normally pick up on Thursdays or Fridays please check the CSA pick up schedule for holiday changes.
Have a safe and happy holiday season!
