2018 CSA Week 10 Recipes
This week we’ve included a lot of the lovely fruits of summer- tomatoes, peppers, and tomatillos. Though tomatillos are most commonly used in a salsa verde, they’re also delicous in soup, like in the recipe below. We also included rutabaga, which is a milder and meatier cousin of turnips and radishes. Rutabaga can be used as a potato substitute, but is also tasty raw, with hints of kohlrabi and cabbage in the flavor. All of the gardens have been soaking up this sunshine and within a few weeks we should have mature winter squash. We’ve been seeding and caring for our fall and winter transplants, so we’re well prepared for a bountiful summer and fall. Enjoy this week’s vegetables!
2018 CSA Week 9 Recipes
Through the heat and buckets of rain we’ve been hard at work putting in the next succession of many crops, and seeing the fruits of our labors with many others planted earlier this season. This week we’ve got a nice blend of leafy greens, root crops, and summer tomatoes. We included beautiful chioggia beets, which have striped concentric rings throughout the core. We used them in a borscht because the combination of beets, cabbage, and carrots is heaven, but they are also commonly eaten lightly boiled in a salad.

The tomatoes are finally here and we are very happy to use them in the recipes this week. We also included peppers and tomatillos in the share for the first time this year. That means that we get to use some great ingredients. The salsa recipe is the perfect use of the tomatoes and tomatillos, and is very easy to make. We also have a delicious potato salad. Both dishes are perfect for barbecues. We hope you enjoy the recipes we have for you this week!
