12 Months of Local Foods


I mentioned the Regional Farm and Food Project a few weeks ago in my post about the “local links” in the Capital District here in upstate NY, but I just have take a minute to mention this great calendar available on their website.  

Each month highlights not only a beautiful picture and brief history of a nearby farm, but a delicious recipe from a farm or local restaurant, a list of in season foods, a healthy eating tip, and a green living tip too!

February features Hawthorne Valley Farm and a couple quick sauerkraut salad recipes. My favorite of the two is pictured above, a nice mix of raw sauerkraut, shredded carrots, chopped dates, a tiny bit of finely chopped jalapeno and a drizzle of oil.  It takes about 5 minutes to put together and needs to site for 20 minutes to allow all the flavors to come out.  It’s delicious!

The calendar is available on the Regional Farm and Food Project website for $15 or for free with a $50 membership donation.  If you live in the area and are interested in an easy way to keep up with what’s in season and where your local foods come from, then it’s a must have.
