And there's more on Saturday! As part of Sustainable Nantucket's 2nd Annual NantucketGrown Food Festival, our Head Vegetable Grower, Andrew Spollett will give a tour of our fields. The tour will culminate in a tasting of a fall dish featuring our produce and local honey by Head Chef, Neil Hudson.
As the summer sun dips in the sky, and kids go back to school, the ocean cools back down to chilly temps and the streets swirl with copper-tinged leaves, it's a harsh realization that the cold temps are not far away. There is always about a week or so of pouting before I truly remember how wonderfully beautiful the Fall season is out here on the island. The crisp breeze, amazing cloud-filled sunsets, soup cravings, chunky sweaters. We welcome a whole new palate of colorful, hearty produce; squash, pumpkins, juicy apples, and of course Nantucket's crown-jewel, cranberries.
The tradition and history of Cranberry farming on-island dates back 200 years. It's no secret our Cranberries are famous. Usually though, cranberries are relegated to the monotonous post of cranberry sauce and relish, or second-fiddle in sugar-laden quick bread. Here, we bring them to the spotlight in some new and unique recipes.
Bring it on Fall, I've got my cranberries. I am ready.
