Smoked City Ham & Thanksgiving Sides
This meal kit contains everything you need for your Thanksgiving feast. The ham is tender pink and smoky sweet; a holiday centerpiece you’d write home about if you weren’t already there. These side dishes, featuring seasonal ingredients from our sustainable growers, cover all the classics – with a twist. Your box will include ingredients to prepare each of the following dishes: - First Hand Foods Smoked City Ham Firsthand Foods seeks out reputable farmers in North Carolina raising livestock humanely and without antibiotics, hormones, or animal byproducts in their feed, and connects them with honest-to-goodness food lovers. - Roasted Vegetables features local root veggies whose natural sweetness shines when roasted. This dish pops when you add PeachDish Salt, a special savory blend made by Beautiful Briny Sea, a salt studio in Atlanta. - Creamed Brussels Sprouts with Mustard & Shallots are roasted and tossed in a light cream sauce for a touch of tangy decadence. - Candied Sweet Potatoes, cooked slowly in syrup, are adapted from a recipe in "Sweet Potatoes" by April McGreger, part of UNC Press' Savor the South cookbook series. The syrup gets its great depth of flavor from apple cider vinegar from Bragg, a health food producer committed to quality - Pecan & Apple Dressing ("stuffing" goes in a bird; "dressing" is baked in a pan) captures the essence of true Southern heartiness. This great dressing recipe is nothing without great crusty bread; that's why we get the best, from Atlanta-based H&F Bread Company. - I-Can't-Believe-Biscuits-Can-Be-This-Easy Cream Biscuits come out tender and fluffy in no time. Organic Valley, a farmer-owned, organic co-op in the midwest sets high standards for their premium products. Their velvety butter is a boon to these great biscuits! They are adapted from a recipe in "Biscuits" by Belinda Ellis, part of UNC Press’ Savor the South cookbook series.
