March and April is a tough time for local food in our region. Luckily we have people like Michael Docter, who know exactly how to harvest and store winter roots so they taste even more beautiful than they did the moment they were harvested. The barn at Winter Moon Roots is carefully controlled for humidity, and cooled by the winter air.
Chris just bought 1200 pounds of hakurei turnips and 500 pounds of carrots from Michael.
Tomorrow we launch the Hakurei Turnip Sandwich using Michael’s turnips and carrots. If you haven’t had it yet, it has a togaroshi mayo, roasted hakurei turnips, a carrot miso salad, and shoyu-brined fried onions.
Here’s nutritional info for this sandwich:
