Produce Report: Perfect Pomegranates & Beautiful Brussels Sprouts

Hello All and Happy Monday!

The produce looks absolutely gorgeous this morning! Whether you are preparing for a feast this Thursday or just looking forward to enjoying delicious organic creations you make, the bins are sure to be a delight this week.

Pretty pomegranates deserved a picture this morning! Don’t let the outside fool you, it may not be perfect, but chances are the inside is! If you have never eaten or cut a pomegranate before, it can be a little intimidating. But no worries! We have the trick. Check out our earlier blog post for the best way to get those juicy seeds out without creating too much of a mess!

I thought the Brussels Sprouts needed mentioning again. I think they are thing of beauty, not to mention they are delicious and easy to prepare as discussed in Friday’s blog post.  They are from Willie Green’s Farm in Monroe, WA. We roasted some over the weekend and they were delicious. For Thanksgiving, I am going to slice them in half, roast them at 425 in a roasting pan, and then toss with browned butter and toasted pecans. It’s simple, fast, festive, and delicious! Yummmm!

Lastly, check out the apples and pears for this week! Don’t they look great? The apples are in perfect shape for apple pie or crisps. The fruit is also beautiful enough to make a nice Thanksgiving table centerpiece. For tips and tricks for your homemade Thanksgiving centerpiece, check out this great article we found!

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone! If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact us directly. We love to talk 🙂 Also, be sure to stay up-to-date with all things organic and New Roots Organics via Facebook and Twitter.
