Winter Slaw

I have posted this one before, but was re-inspired by it just the other day. It is a great way to use this area’s winter vegetables in a way that is fresh and alive.

1 or 2 heads of cabbage (perhaps 1.5 lbs total – or enough to fill a large serving bowl)
5 large carrots, or 10 small ones (or more if you like carrot)
2 apples
1/2 onion
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
salt and pepper to taste

Shred carrots, onions, and apples, in a food processor or by hand.

Chop the cabbage in a food processor or by hand.

Stir together. Mix oil, vinegar, salt, and pepper in a measuring cup and pour over the slaw.

If you have time and forethought, let the slaw sit in the fridge for a few hours. Or, if you are like me, just eat it right away.

Serves a family.

Market News

The plumb trees in my yard have begun leafing out. I have been ignoring the early daffodils but it is hard to ignore leaves on the trees. Full force bed preparation and soil mixing has commenced on my farm and I’m pretty sure I’m not alone.

The food hub is also really beginning to take form and I’m very excited at the prospects for the food hub coordinator position. If you haven’t seen the announcement for the food hub coordinator, please click here and scroll down. Pass the information along to all who might be interested. We have moved the application deadline back to March 7th, but don’t wait to apply!
