Food for Thought
 
 Pounds of onions weighing you down? Try making a traditional German Onion Pie or as the Germans say Zwiebelkuchen.  This recipe is inspired by a fellow CSA member, Emily Casey and her mother-in-law, who longs for the pie her Grandmother once made. This pie is similar to a quiche, but has a yeast dough crust instead of pie crust (you could however choose to use pie crust dough if you rather)  I should to be clear...this isn't the most health recipe, but it sure is hearty and full of flavor! It's important to take the time to caramelize the onions and really bring them to their fullest flavor. And of course adding bacon and sour cream with the hint of caraway seed won't hurt either. Pair with a nice side of lightly dressed greens to balance out the richness. 
 
Onions are just the topic this week!  Inspired by one of the Farm Stand regulars, Pete,who buys our smallest onions with pleasure so he may make his favorite Pickled Onions, an English tradition. I would prefer to share Pete's recipe, but this one from The Spruce will have to do.  Small whole onions work best to keep them nice and crisp, but infused with pickled goodness!  Perfect for sandwiches and  salads; or impress at your next dinner party with a lovely cheese and charcuterie board accompanied by your pickled onions!
 
Have I mentioned talking about food is one of my favorite parts of my job! Reach out anytime!
