My first Honest Kitchen is already a little off. I am not publishing a recipe although I have a couple ready to go. Instead, I want to write a little bit about getting prepared for those wonderful local meals when you don't have a garden.
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is one of the best and easiest ways to get local produce for your honest kitchen. There are a few things to take into consideration when you are buying into a CSA: how much are you ready to spend? How much food will you need and for me, is it convenient to get each week?
This year, I will be going to Deri Farm and getting my half share. I can't wait to get fresh veggies and cook 'em up with some venison, turkey (assuming I shoot one) or bear. Honest kitchen means that there is a commitment to real food with real ingredients. The fewer ingredients a dish has the better and the healthier it is for everyone.
Fresh produce grown by a farmer that you know and can talk to plus meat that I have harvested myself... this Honest Kitchen will be ready to go very shortly!
