CAFE: Just in: Eggs and Pastries
Just in: Eggs and Pastries
Holiday riches 12/18/11
For me, one of the biggest challenges of eating in season is adjusting my egg consumption to the annual slowdown in egg production that occurs with the approach and aftermath of winter solstice, especially during the holidays when our menus and appetites contain more fat.
I confess to an affluent egg footprint. Because our growers are out of eggs I am outsourcing to Limestone Farms in Greer to supplement secure my own supply of fresh, local earth-sustained eggs. I offer to pick up eggs for you as well for the premium price of $4.25/dozen (our cost w/o travel). They are listed under eggs with CAFÉ as grower. Limestone is currently a local egg provider for the Greenville Whole Foods store. http://www.localharvest.org/limestone-farms-M39040
And speaking of holiday riches, I was delighted to discover the arrival of Sylvan Falls Mill products (e.g. biscotti, croissants, scones) made with water-powered stone-milling of whole grains. Quantities are limited. Last market of the year! Sylvan Falls Mill is a historic restored Mill/ B&B in Rabun Gap, GA, operated by Mike and Linda Johnson. Consider the gift of R&R at this time of year (or shortly afterward).
Remember to stock up for year’s end. There will be no market next week. Be sure you have enough eggs, milk (we find it keeps well for 2+weeks), meat, turnips, and greens to get you through NY Eve.
You should also order something just to get yourself and all our growers to our holiday party at the Clemson drop. More on the party later…
Eat well! Lance
