Farm to Baby Menu for Friday March 2nd
This week we have organic Beauregard sweet potatoes, Cameo apples, parsnips, and Savoy cabbage. Read more below.
Sweet potatoes: These sweets (cultivar: Beauregard) were born in Long Island, but have a southern accent. Horticulturists at Louisiana State first bred this variety to be hardy, and Garden of Eve Organic Farm in Riverhead (on the North Fork) raises them to be delicious! They boast a beautiful rose colored skin and a gorgeous orange flesh (a sure sign they’re packed with beta-carotene).
Cameo Apples: Prized for its sweet-tart flesh, Cameo is a descendant of the better known Red Delicious. Can you see the family resemblance? Cameos are great eaten out of hand, but we find that they roast beautifully and make an exceptional puree.
Parsnips: We just can’t get over our parsnip puree. We love how deeply sweet, rich and complex it is. And did you know these guys pack even more nutrition than their carrot cousins? Unbelievable.
Savoy Cabbage: Part of the brassica family, which also includes kale and broccoli, this nutritional powerhouse is the sweetest and most tender of the cabbages. It has its crinkled emerald leaves to thank for its striking good looks, and we have W. Rogowski farm to thank for it.
