Sweet Potato Soup with Miso and Ginger

Try this with Rocky Glade’s Farm fresh ginger!

Serves 4 to 6, makes about 8 cups
For the soup:
Olive oil
1 large yellow onion, chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 (2-inch) piece fresh ginger, peeled and thinly sliced, about 1/4 cup
3 cups mashed sweet potato (from about 3 roasted sweet potatoes)
3 tablespoons light miso
4 cups chicken or vegetable broth
1/2 cup whole milk
Salt and pepper

For the spiced yogurt drizzle:
1/2 cup whole milk yogurt
1/2 teaspoon garam masala
1/2 tablespoon maple syrup

Cook the onion and garlic in the olive oil over medium heat until soft and translucent. Raise the heat a little and add the ginger. Fry until the ginger is fragrant, but don’t let the onions and garlic brown. Add the sweet potato mash and miso, and continue cooking until the puree is warmed.

Add the broth to the pan and stir to combine. Bring to a simmer, then cover, turn the heat to low, and let the soup cook for about 5 minutes to bring the flavors together. Remove from heat and puree in a blender or with an immersion blender.

Return to the heat and warm, whisking in the milk. Salt and pepper to taste. If the soup is too thick, whisk in a little extra milk until you get the consistency you want.

Whisk together the yogurt, garam masala, and maple syrup. Drizzle over the sweet potato soup to garnish.

Hello!

We have some wonderful veggies for you this week – fall lettuces as well as some other interesting greens. Although the summer veggies may reign supreme in the hearts and minds of many, the diversity and selection this time of year is really impressive. And delicious! There is so much to choose from, and great stuff available for hearty meals, salads, soups, and baking!

This week, John is returning from a much needed family vacation to the Gulf. Tally will be off this week on a trip with her family. Please be extra nice to John as he will be all by his lonesome at delivery.

We will not be offering cheese this week – The Bloomy Rind will be back with us next week with their great selection.
We just want to remind you that when placing your order and an item is sold out, feel free to let us know in the comments section of your order that you would like some if available!~ Often we are able to make that request and can add it to your order as we pack!

Thank you so much for all your support!
See you Wednesday!

Hello!

We are sure loving these beautiful Fall days! Low temperatures, no humidity and clear blue skies make for wonderful work conditions – and the plants love it, too! Hope you are all getting some good outside time these days!

We have a lovely selection of Fall crops for you, as well as some lingering summer fare. DOn’t miss out on the beans, zucchini, and the last of the tomatoes, as they won’t be around much longer! We do have a nice assortment of greens, winter squashes of all kinds, and potatoes!

Also this week, Sugar Camp Farm has a bountiful chestnut tree and we get to reap the reward! These chestnuts are so delicious roasted and then peeled and eaten while still warm! They can also be used in many recipes. If you have never tried them now is the time!

We just want to remind you that when placing your order and an item is sold out, feel free to let us know in the comments section of your order that you would like some if available!~ Often we are able to make that request and can add it to your order as we pack!

Hello!

Happy Labor Day! We hope you are able to enjoy an extended weekend with family, friends, rest and play!

At the end of this long summer season, we are so grateful for all the support you have shown Fresh Harvest! Your smiles, appreciation, patience and good cheer help us get through many a long hot day. We love to share our produce with you. We are sure we speak for all of our small family farms, producers, and businesses when we say “We couldn’t do it without you!”

We have a great selection of vegetables this week! After the lull of last week, we are pleased that the third round of tomatoes are in, as well as lots of great end-of-summer eggplant and peppers! Also lots of good greens on the Market to mark the changing seasons, as well as winter squash !

Please remember we will reuse any of the plastic bags we pack your produce in. We appreciate the opportunity to reuse them, so please bring them back to us rather than toss them – as long as they are in good condition! Same goes for the pint containers and any egg cartons we give you!

Thank you so much for all your support!

See you Wednesday!
