2018 CSA Week 17 Recipes
We’re aflush with summer’s bounty! Our roma tomatoes are really hitting their stride so we included a hefty helping this week. These are the meatiest of the tomatoes which makes them perfect for sauces, salsas, and soups. We also included the first of our sweet corn, which we hope to include a few more times this season. The corn was harvested hours before the dropoff so it’s near peak sugar content! We also included ground cherries, a sweet relative of tomatoes and tomatillos, which is another crop we will include more of from now until the end of the season. We hope you enjoy the variety this week, and thank you for supporting our farm!

This week we’ve included a crowd pleasing winter squash- butternut. Everyone has their favorite way to cook butternut. We love roasting it with some sausage, though we also highly recommend the butternut squash soup recipe below. the delicious herb lovage, a spicy cousin of celery is included. The leaves look similar but give them a taste and you will know the difference. A little goes a long way. We also included two nice of bunches of basil, which can be made into a pesto, then frozen, or dried for later use.

This week we included both sweet and hot banana peppers. If used all together the mix is mildly hot, but if you want to use the peppers individually you could chop the top off and smell for sweetness or heat. The winter squash this week is baby blue hubbard which has a sweet and savory flesh. Also included are sweet bunching onions, which have a small tender white bulb and fresh greens which are delicious in any typical onion application. Two of the herbs this week are thyme and winter savory. Winter savory is related to summer savory, and has oblong leaves with a bit of spiciness. Thyme has a gentle flavor with lemony and minty tones. Enjoy the share and have a wonderful week!
