Hello committed and wonderful CSA customers of ours! The first month has come and gone with regards to our farm and your vegetable CSA and what a summer it has been. Record highs and record lows in more ways than the weather! We are incredibly short staffed for the summer and I have been committed to spending time getting you good food rather than good news. I would like to promise that I will at least post on here what you are receiving each week and I will do my best to keep that promise. I thank those of you who have contacted me directly when you were unsure of what an item was in your basket. It makes me so sad not to have time to write for you. . . I LOVE sharing recipes and ideas around simple dishes that make these veggies taste great! As always, we deeply appreciate your support and thank you for your understanding with regards to the overwhelming field work that is taking up our time. Please email me if for some reason you are unsure of anything in your basket!
This week you will be enjoying carrots, beets, lettuce mix, salad turnips, kohrabi, oregano, dill, and snap peas. The greens of the salad turnips are ugly, but ignore that! The white turnip is sweet and delicious! You can eat it raw on salad, sauteed, or roasted. They have a sweet delicate flavor in comparison to the classic fall turnip. Kohlrabi (the round green ball you also got last week) is one of our favorites!! Simply peel off the thin green skin and inside you will find “the apple of the cabbage family.” It is crispy and juicy like an apple, but taste like a mild cabbage. It is delicious raw grated on salad or chunked and dipped in dressing. It also makes a great slaw with carrots and/or radishes. I love to bake it with parmesan cheese. If you are ever looking for recipes look under the “recipes” tab at our website www.grasslandorganicfarm.com.
Thanks again and have a great week!
