While nature prepares for its long winter sleep, life inside the farmhouse is anything but frigid. We’re hustling and bustling in preparation for the holidays, but that doesn’t mean we can’t slow down and enjoy the comfort of good food and cheer. Let’s honor the bounty of our root cellars and freezers by preparing a feast fit for a king! Roasted beets make for a wonderfully light yet flavorful first course salad, and puréed turnips and rutabagas turn the soup course into anything but ordinary. Don’t forget to sop up every last drop with homemade bread, still slightly warm from the oven. Or perhaps gravy is more to your liking for dipping; if so, our Roasted Chicken With Apple Cider Pan Gravy should do the trick. Then finish it all off with a classic and oh-so-rich Sour Cream Chocolate Cake. A feast, indeed. Enjoy!
