Inspired by this post from Eco Women – I have challenged myself to prepare a Thanksgiving meal with local ingredients. This means that I will build my menu around food that is grown or raised within a 100 mile radius of my home.
I will have to do some research, because the local farmers markets are ending and I will have to get more creative. I live in Virginia, so my choices will likely look something like this:
- Free-range, heritage Turkey
- Sweet Potatoes
- Red Potatoes
- Winter Squash – butternut, acorn, pumpkin
- Apples – lots of them
- Dried fruits
- maybe some Peas
- Leafy greans like Kale, etc
My next post will include some online resources that I uncover after I do my research.
Will you join the challenge?
