Mushrooms in winter shares & Recipes

Posted on January 2nd, 2021 by Tessa DeMaster

NEW EXTRAS: raw diary yogurt, smoothies, kefir, milk, hot sauce, EGG NOG, coffee, bone broth, cookies

New for your share: Organic Cremini Mushrooms

Enjoying mushrooms this year has been an added feature for our family and many of our members in 2020. Last winter Farmer Reuben met organic mushroom growers from Fleetwood, PA at a farmer's meeting which allowed him to offer delicious organic mushrooms almost every week of the season as extras. 

As our winter vegetables begin to wane we are offering mushrooms as part of your share to give you something special and added variety. We've also sourced Red Dandelion Greens and sweet onions from farms in Lancaster to fill out your share this week. 

Some suggestions for mushroom recipes that we've used this season are Mushroom and Parsley Salad, Stuffed Mushrooms, mushroom soup, mushroom gravy and Sauteed Garlic Mushrooms. You can even use them in your filling for Stuffed Winter Squash. I was fascinated to learn that white button, Portabella and Cremini mushrooms are all the same variety in this post.

If you are not a mushroom fan, there is room for you to swap them out for potatoes or something else. 

You can now also set your preferences for mushrooms in your account to let us know you don't prefer them or that you Love them and want them again. Update your preferences HERE.

We'll keep farming for you!
