Cabbage and Caramalized Onion Tart
from NYT Cooking

A delicious and easy dinner!

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2 medium onions, cut in half root to stem, then thinly sliced across the grain
Salt
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 small cabbage, shredded or chopped (about 6 cups)
Freshly ground pepper
4 eggs
¾ cup low-fat milk
½ cup, tightly packed (2 ounces) Gruyère cheese
One pie crust

Heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil in a large, heavy nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the onions, and cook, stirring, until they begin to sizzle and soften, about three minutes. Add a generous pinch of salt and the garlic. Stir everything together, turn the heat to low, cover and cook slowly for 45 minutes, stirring often, until the onions are very soft, sweet and light brown.Meanwhile, heat the remaining olive oil over medium heat in another large skillet. Add the cabbage. Cook, stirring often, until it begins to wilt, then add salt and pepper to taste. Continue to cook for another 10 to 15 minutes, stirring often, until the cabbage is tender and fragrant. Stir in the onions, simmer together uncovered for about five minutes or until there is no longer any liquid in the pan, and remove from the heat.
Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Oil a 9- or 10-inch tart pan and line with the dough. Beat the eggs and milk in a bowl and season with salt (about 1/2 teaspoon) and pepper. Stir in the onions, cabbage and cheese, and combine well. Scrape into the tart pan, and place in the oven. Bake 40 to 45 minutes until the top is lightly browned.

Fresh Harvest for May 27th - Eat Your Veggies!!




Market News

Hello!

There is such a great selection of vegetables this week! The great growing season is upon us and we are bountiful this week with a great variety of veggies. There is tons of great stuff for the grill as well as salad fixings and delicious greens. Try something new like some delicious snow peas or Fennel! And if you haven’t had farm fresh celery you are in for a treat!!

John’s strawberries have been a little late in getting here, but are big, sweet and delicious. Last week we pieced together berries from 3 different farms, but this week these beautiful berries are all organically grown at John’s farm.

Just in time – Dozen Bakery has listed their scrumptious Brown Sugar Shortcakes – perfect for strawberry shortcake and lots of other things as well!

It is always hard to guess quantity on items like berries – we usually don’t know for sure until we pick them! If they are sold out and you would like to order some, please leave us a note in the comments section of your order and we will try to get you some!
