Farm to People - Fresh Ingredients Delivered

We love Farm To People! Emma and I have been using this CSA grocery delivery service for many years. Suddenly, due to COVID these local farm fresh ingredients have become an amazing resource for us. FTP delivers select veggies, proteins, and pantry items to your door with an extremely short supply chain, making it a convenient and safe way to get your groceries during this crazy and uncertain time. It's also an excellent way to support farmers and their families.

Farm To People sources their food from an assortment or farms and local makers including Brooklyn Grange, Four & Twenty Blackbirds and The Meathook. Also check out this handy guide to washing your veggies. Below is a recipe for a plate of Shrimp, Mushrooms, Kale and Grits that we recently made in Quarantine, all ingredients came from FTP. Enjoy!

Oyster Mushrooms, sliced
2 Cloves Garlic, diced
Salt and Pepper

Boy oh boy do we all love mushrooms around here. With fresh mushrooms you need to do very little to them to make them taste great. Add butter over medium heat and let butter melt, then add garlic till fragrant. Add mushrooms and toss and let cook down. Wait to add salt till the shrooms are half cooked, adding the salt releases the mushrooms natural water and if you do this too soon they can be rubbery. DONE!

Garlic, dice

Chicken or veggie stock

I left out the quantity because it will depend on how much you are cooking. Start again with a medium heat and EVOO, add garlic till fragrant, add onions and some salt, cook till onions are translucent. Add kale and stock, mix and cover to let steam. Once its wilty you are DONE!
