It's easy to forget that oranges were once an exotic fruit in the North East. Thanks to a steady and sophisticated supply chain they are now available year round. Not only is citrus a great source of vitamin C and fiber, but their bright colors provide a burst of light and hope during the dark days of winter. As we get farther into winter, citrus season picks up! You will start to see a variety of sweet and flavorful fruit zipped up in its own brightly colored jacket. Make the most of the season with our guide to the most common (and delicious) citrus varieties you can expect to see in your Boston Organics deliveries, as well as tips for keeping these little gems fresh.
Recipe #8 RED Curry with Tofu and Vegetables
This week we're heading to Southeast Asia for inspiration for making the most of winter's produce. The flavors of Thailand - rich and creamy coconut milk, red curry (corinader, cumin, chiles, lemongrass, galangal), salty and umami-packed fish sauce and bright, fresh basil or cilantro - make for an easy and flavorful curry, served over rice. Jarred or tinned curry paste (we like Maesri brand) make this a super quick and easy weeknight supper. You control the heat of the finished dish by altering the amount of curry paste, though beware of the burst of head clearing vapors when the paste is added to the Dutch oven: a vent hood or open window is your good friend here
Beans are high in protein making them a popular food for vegetarian and vegan diets. But you don't have to be a herbivore to enjoy these nutrient rich legumes that lend themselves to all kinds of wonderful dishes. And we've got a terrific local source (ME) for heirloom beans, Baer's Best.
For the past three decades Charley and Carol Baer have been specializing in heirloom bean varieties that have grown here in the Northeast since colonial days. Many years ago beans were a New England staple and some local people may remember the traditional Saturday night meal of baked beans and brown bread. Now many people are rediscovering the benefits and pleasures of having beans as a regular part of their diet and finding new ways to enjoy these specialty beans.
