Fall into the Holidays!

November 21, 2011

Fall is flying by and November is often your last chance to work in the garden. Some common tasks are the last rounds of harvest, soil preparation with compost for the next growing season, sowing cover crops and garden clean up.

 Then a well deserved break!

The usual suspects for November‘s harvest are Brussels sprouts, kale, leeks, parsnips, as well as a bounty of herbs, just in time for Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving marks the start of the holiday season and a time for great food!

 

Delicious and comforting foods that can incorporate your final garden harvest are parsnip and ginger soup, a hearty stuffing seasoned with rosemary or sage, and who could forget casseroles.  Make your own casserole mushroom sauce with mushrooms, olive oil, sage, thyme and marjoram instead of condensed soup, and top it with whole-wheat croutons instead of onion rings. A Brussels sprout and green bean casserole with a guilt free twist would be a perfect addition to any Thanksgiving spread.
