Notes on the box.

Remove tops from turnips and radishes for best storage. Tops are edible, so you can save them. We like them chopped, and sautéed till wilted with garlic and butter. These greens and the leaf broccoli are so good cooked down and served with their juices on top of some cheesy polenta.
Store onions, garlic, and pie pumpkin outside of the fridge. Everything else should be stored in the fridge.
Directions for roasting beets. Having roasted beets cut up and ready to go in the fridge makes a great addition to spinach and arugula salad with some toasted nuts and honey mustard vinaigrette.

Cosmic Wheel Creamery Cheese Shares.

This week we have some of our Lyra Cheese that is washed in wine. I often discard the rind of our cheeses, but this one is nice to eat. Washing the rind in wine gives a nice subtly fruity notes to the cheese.
The Cygnus is an alpine style. To get the nice round holes that are usually found in Swiss cheese, specific aging temperatures have to be met. Since we have a small aging space for all of our cheeses, we aren’t able to create the specific temperatures needed to get those round holes. instead we have some open texture in the cheese, but not holes, exactly. I do like the flavor even though the appearance isn’t what I was hoping for. Hope you enjoy it, too.
