In this week's share I picked up:
- 6 ears of corn
- 2 pattypan squash, 2 yellow squash
- 1 head of cabbage
- Cherry and plum tomatoes
- 4 Anaheim chile peppers
- 1 bunch of broccoli
- A whole pile of kale - picked my own!
- 1 bunch of Swiss chard
- A bunch of basil
- A whole mess of purslane (more to come on this!)
- I think I'm going to make a pudding with the corn.
- The cabbage is going most likely become another slaw, maybe with the broccoli.
- The plum tomatoes will get roasted and eaten either on pasta or perhaps on bruschetta.
- I have two avocados ripening on the counter, so I'll like make chile rellenos with the peppers and spiced greens with some of the kale.
- The cherry tomatoes have already gone into tomato pie.
So how'd I do with last week's haul? Here's what we ate from the CSA last week:
- Half the corn was steamed and eaten hot with butter. Yum. The other half went into a salad with a few other vegetables.
- I stuffed the Anaheims with Monterey jack and some thinly sliced onions. They went into a skillet and got all silky soft.
- The cabbage made a slaw with a few other vegetables.
- I fried some of the zucchini and the rest went into the corn salad.
- I made this gorgeous tomato rarebit to test for Food52 with great tomatoes I had.
- The plum tomatoes went into a pasta sauce with Swiss chard, onions and bacon.
This Summer, I am chronicling my first CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) experience. My CSA share is from Arrowhead Farm, a farm based in Newburyport, MA. Each week, I am posting about what was in my share and what I'm doing with it. By way of full disclosure, I won my share through a raffle and am not paying for it. However, Arrowhead did not know I was entered in the raffle, and I received no special consideration because of this blog. I paid for my livestock share.
