Share recipe inspiration:

We made this risotto over the weekend. Risotto does take a little tending, but it's well worth the effort.

I made the rest of the meal while I was adding water (I didn't have any stock on hand) and stirring.

Butternut Squash Risotto:

Kim from wholesale says add a little grated carrot and minced garlic (sesame seeds and sesame oil if you have it on hand, but just as good without it) to this Curried Cabbage Salad and it's perfect.

It's best if you add the cabbage last and leave it for no longer than 5 minutes. You still want to have a little crunch left to it.

Maple Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Hazelnuts.

Dry Rub Fall off the Bone Chicken Wings


This is our first year with storage radish. Here are black and watermelon radish (I'll let you guess which is which).

The black radish is hot, with a horseradish-y taste. The watermelon radish is sweet and mild.

Both are good and crunchy.


Have a great week!

Thanks!

Justine and the whole TapRoot Team
