We’re so excited to begin the CSA season! We want to thank all of our returning members and welcome all of our new ones. If you’re new to our program, here are some things that you should know- we include one recipe on this flyer, but we also have four more recipes on our website (front9farm.com/recipes) that use all of the produce in the share. We try to use minimal packaging so any leafy produce should be stored in plasticware or plastic bags to keep it humid. If you dont know how to store something ask us and we will be happy to help. We love seeing the food you make so if you ever share something on social media make sure to tag @front9farm.We have a great share to start the season. The leeks and beets have been grown throughout the winter and should taste nice and sweet, even if their exterior is rough. Thank you all for supporting us and our farm!

Cabbage Egg Drop Soup

Cabbage Egg Drop Soup

Heat 1 Tbsp olive oil in a large stockpot over medium-high heat.  Add 1 small onion and sauté for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until softened.  Add 3 cloves of garlic minced and sauté for 1-2 more minutes, stirring occasionally, until fragrant. Add 1/2 the collards chopped and 8 cups chicken stock ingredients. Add 1 tsp ground ginger, 1/4 tsp pepper and stir to combine.  Continue cooking until the mixture reaches a simmer. Simmer. Reduce heat to medium, in order to maintain the simmer.  Cover and simmer for 10 minutes, until the  collards has completely softened.

Make the egg ribbons. Remove the lid. Then, while the soup is still simmering, use one hand to continuously stir the soup round and round, creating a “whirlpool”-type motion, while you use your other hand to slowly drizzle in 3 whisked eggs. The eggs will cook instantly in the hot broth, creating pretty egg ribbons.

Season. Stir in the 2 tsp sesame oil until completely combined. Then give the soup a taste and season with salt, as needed, plus any extra sesame oil, white pepper or ginger that you think it might need. Serve. Serve warm, garnished with green onions if desired.
