Onondaga Valley Area
2 to 3 large sunchokes, sliced 1/4-inch thick
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 sprig of fresh rosemary, leaves removed
3 to 4 cloves of garlic, peeled and left whole
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Scrub the sunchokes under cold running water and slice 1/4-inch thick. Add the sunchokes and garlic to a roasting pan or baking sheet and toss with the olive oil so the bottom of the pan and the sunchokes are lightly coated. Add more olive oil a tablespoon at a time if you don’t feel like the vegetables are coated enough, but not too much; you don’t want them swimming in olive oil. Sprinkle with the salt and rosemary. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until the sunchokes are tender inside, like a potato.

What’s New At Grindstone Farm
The website is open for shopping.
Order deadline is noon on Monday.
Enterprise and Crispin apples are available this week along with a small amount of Empires that we have left. Enterprise apples are thick skinned. These apples have a great sweet/tart balance and are as great for any of your favorite cooking recipes as well as eating. They store 3-6 months in your refrigerator.
Wyllie Fox Farm in Cato, NY has supplied us with some white satin carrots and orange carrots this week. We still have local yams, green cabbages and red cabbages from Joseph Gingerich. Freedom Rains Farm still has a good deal of daikon radish and collards.
I am sure many of you have already read on our facebook page that Farmer Dick injured himself this week on the farm. The facebook posting read like this: Letting you know that our capable staff will be managing the farm and your orders as yesterday afternoon Farmer Dick lost his battle with a piece of farm equipment and got a ride to the hospital (in case you’ve not heard it before, NEVER put your hand in any running machinery). He has a huge, deep gash (almost to the bone) on his right forearm, about 2 inches wide and 4.5 inches long. He is now home and will see a hand specialist later this week. We are thanking God it wasn’t a worse injury. We just thought we’d let you, our customers and supporters, know and ask you to pray for his perfect healing if you are so inclined.
He learned a very valuable lesson, one he has always told to his employees but failed to follow himself this one time. Safety first, always turn the machinery off before trying to fix it! And his capable staff are having a very hard time, making him take it easy this week. We have found ourselves having to remind him not to pick things up so he doesn’t pull and stretch those stitches!

We at Grindstone Farm know you care about local eating, so we have created this group on Wholeshare to open the door to Regional Access’s wholesale products. This site operates a bit differently than your Grindstone account, in that you can order bulk items, but you can also initiate a “split” of a bulk item so that you are buying only what you can handle.
