2021 CSA Week 24 Recipes

We hope you have all made good use of this unusually warm fall we’ve been having. We’re happy we haven’t had to cover any tender crops so far, though we may need to drag out the row cover by this weekend. We included two soup recipes this week which are both very satisfying and would be delicious if ea ten along with a hearty loaf of bread or grilled cheese. The roasted turnip soup was wonderful even without the cream. We’re excited to have lettuce back in the share this week, and we hope to have another cutting or two before the end of the season. We only have 4 more weeks to go, and we than you all for sticking with us through spring, summer, and fall. We will miss seeing all of your smiling faces every week!

Every time we look up it feels like 6 more weeks have flown by. Its hard to believe this year’s csa is already starting to wind down. We included a very aromatic and savory ground cherry jam recipe which makes a wonderful spread with cheese andcrackers. We will include another 2 pints of ground cherries from now until the end of the season, so you could store them up an do a big batch closer to the holidays. They will keep the longest if you store them in your fridge or on your countertop with the husk removed. They will continue to ripen, similar to a tomato, so any that have some green to them can be stored for several weeks. We included broccoli greens and kohlrabi, two members of the cruciferous family, both of which are highly nutritious, but are also more digestable (if eaten in more than 1/4 cup quantities) if cooked. They both taste great in a stir fry, just be sure to cook them until then are tender. We included the most tried and true method for eating okra on the blog this week- breaded and fried. It really is a tasty way to eat okra. Have a great week!

We’re definitely feeling the season change, with the later sunrise and earlier sunset, though  we’re appreciating the recent warmer than average temperatures. This week we were still able to include summer vegetables including peppers, eggplant, and beans, though our bean crop was never very happy this year and unfortunately they are on their way out. All of our greens are looking and tasting better at this point now that the heat of summer has passed. We included some large crunchy radishes, which also have edible tops- good for stir fries or sauteeing. We were also tempted to sneak the Swiss chard into butternut squash and black bean quesadillas, which would make for a nice modification of the recipe we included on the blog this week. We hope you have a great week!
