With the cooler, rainy weather, I was in the mood for comfort food and Fresh Fork Market gave me the right ingredients for it!

What We Got:

1 lb city chicken

1 head broccoli

1 bunch turnips

1 spaghetti squash

A handful of Croatian peppers

1 bunch beets

1 bunch mustard greens

1 head cabbage

1 bunch kale

What We Made:

Best City Chicken (click here for the recipe)

City Chicken isn’t chicken. It’s cubed pork, put on a skewer, breaded and fried. I can remember one of my relatives making this every time we went over to her house for dinner. It may be a uniquely Cleveland Eastern European thing, though, because Matthew looked at me like I was crazy. He totally enjoyed the City Chicken, though! I gave up on the skewers because ours were too long to fit in the pan. One thing I really liked about this recipe is that you only fried the pork for a few minutes, then baked until done.

Veloute de Tomates (click here for the recipe)

We still had a lot of tomatoes hanging around, so Matthew whipped up this tasty French tomato soup. It tastes very creamy, but only has 2 tablespoons of creme fraiche in it. This was perfect to warm us up on a rainy fall evening!

Honey Sauteed Broccoli and Carrots (click here for the recipe)

With our broccoli from this week and the honey and carrots from previous weeks, I made this easy and tasty side dish. The garlic and honey balanced nicely and kept the dish from being too spicy or too sweet.

Roasted Radishes, Turnips and Scallions (click here for the recipe)

Particularly with vegetables like radishes and turnips, I like roasting them to mellow the flavors. This Asian-themed roasted recipe made a nice side for chicken.

Honey Vanilla Ice Cream

This one is Matthew’s own concoction using our Fresh Fork raw honey.

2 cups heavy whipping cream

2 cups whole milk

1/3 cup white sugar

1/2 cup honey

1 tablespoon vanilla

Mix well and put in your ice cream maker. It tasted a lot like Honey Hut to me! Delicious!

How did you use your Fresh Fork this week?
