it’s time.

spring is in the air and dang it, I’m ready to blog again. Has the Daring Kitchen kicked me out yet? I hope not because there has been some pretty delicious looking food coming out of the Daring Bakers and Daring Cooks flickr groups.

  1. I am interested in eating only food that was grown within 100 miles of Ann Arbor for the next 4 months and was wondering if you have any tips on doing this. For example, what grains and beans are grown locally?

    • Hi Sam,
      That’s a great goal. I don’t have a really good answer for you about the beans. You can try your luck at any of the farmers markets around when it’s shelling bean season. For your grains, try Westwind Milling Company in Linden (north on US23) or Archie Jennings of Jennings Bros. Stone Ground Grains sells his organic flours at the Ann Arbor Farmers Market (he’s *just* within the 100 mile radius). We *love* his American Corn Meal.
      Have you looked into getting a CSA share? There are a lot of local farms that still have shares available. They provide you with a share of their bounty every week, so you can be assured you are eating locally and seasonally. Take a look at localharvest.org for a fairly comprehensive list of local CSAs. And wow! I am constantly amazed at how many local farmers are selling meat at the Farmers Market. We get our local meat from Old Pine Farm as a CSA share. Kris Hirth and her sons run a fantastic farm and her meat is delicious.
      Best of luck to you.
