2020 CSA Week 25 Recipes

We have lots of great ingredients for the soup weather coming up this week. We have two great soup recipes on the blog this week- a hearty chicken & rice, and a butternut squash soup.  We’ve been hustling this week to cover our plants which can survive the hard frost (28F) we’re expecting this weekend. Many cold-tolerant crops only need protection from the dry cold air dessicating them. The upside of the cold weather is that the greens become sweeter after a few frosts as they increase their sugar storage in their leaves to help them survive the cold, and pest pressure is reduced. We have lots of great produce planned for the last three bags of the season!

Another bag of great produce for you this week! We were finally able to include some poblano peppers in the bag this week. I’m sure most of you know but poblanos have a mild heat and a nice smokey flavor. We used it in a stir-fry along with the eggplant and sweet peppers. Below is a recipe for a borscht soup, it’s a delicious hearty and healthy beet soup. If you haven’t made borscht before you should try it! Thank you all for supporting our farm, and have a wonderful week!

2020 CSA Week 23 Recipes

We appreciated the unseasonably warm few days we’ve had, though that has quickly changed now that it’s the end of the week. We hope you got a chance to get outside and enjoy the sunshine as much as we did. We’ve been busy preparing for the first significant frost of the season, so we’re covering any cold-intolerant plants we hope to keep producing for another few weeks. This week’s bag has a great mix of fresh flavors, including sorrel greens, which add a nice tanginess to soups or sauteed greens, and baby fennel, which has very flavorful, crisp fronds that work well in salads and soups. Have a great week!
