Recipes


Fresh Roasted Chicken
This recipe would work for a small turkey, as well! Simple and delicious!
Ingredients:
1 (4-pound) whole organic chicken*
8 garlic cloves, minced
4 tablespoons chopped fresh rosemary*
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Olive oil

Preparation

1. Preheat oven to 425°.
2. Remove and discard giblets and neck from chicken. Rinse chicken with cold water; pat dry. Starting at neck cavity, loosen skin from breast and drumsticks.
3. Combine garlic and rosemary. Rub seasoning mixture under loosened skin and into the body cavity. Sprinkle salt and pepper evenly over entire outside surface of chicken.
4. Place chicken in a shallow roasting pan coated with olive oil. Bake at 425° for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 375°; bake 1 hour or until a thermometer registers 180°. Let stand 5 minutes.

ORDERING IS OPEN FOR GREATER GREENVILLE/ TRAVELER’S REST USLG CUSTOMERS

The countdown to Thanksgiving has begun. Use the next food pickup to stock up on all your favorite holiday ingredients.

Spurgeon Farm has added a variety of winter veggies, inlcuding broccoli, arugula, boc choy, and tsot soi, an extremely cold-tolerant member of the Brassica family. It hails from Asia and can be steamed or stir-fried and complements fish and chicken dishes, especially those with an Asian flavor.

Be sure to stock up on plenty of Happy Cow cheeses, milks, and creams for your Thanksgiving baking. If you haven’t tried for yourself we can tell you, Dodi Spurgeon’s pies are better than your mama’s. Putney Farm eggs, Welch and Son chicken, and plenty of beef from Richard at Nature’s Beef will provide loads of comfort meals for you and your family as the days grow shorter and colder.

In addition to your order of Putney Farm Eggs, Nature’s Beef, Welch & Son chicken, Happy Cow milk products, Swamp Rabbit Cafe baked goods, and more, be sure to click on “vegetables” on the left-hand navigation bar of our market page and spend some time browsing veggies. More greens and other fall vegetables will be available in the coming weeks. And don’t forget, we also have shelled and unshelled pecans!
