Westside CSA July 12th

The warm weather crops have been loving our beautiful summery weather and we hope you have too!  Here is what you will have in your bag for the week:

Mixed Salad Greens

Padron Peppers

Tomatoes

Basil

Zucchini

Cilantro

Head Lettuce

Onions

Peas

Kholrabi

Spinach

Raspberries

We hope you enjoy!

Tip of the Week:

You have received the first padron peppers of the season, and it is the earliest in the season I have ever had them!  Padron peppers or pimientos de padron are a Spanish pepper that is traditionally served as a tapas or appetizer.  They are easy to prepare and fun to eat.  Just saute them whole in olive oil and then salt.  They say 1 in 10 are hot.  The other 9 are not hot and have a great flavor.  To be on the safe side, I always take a small bite off the end to make sure it isn’t a hot one!

Westside CSA for July 5, 2012

Hello all!

I hope you all had a fun 4th! We’re on schedule to provide you with yet another bag of produce for the week – enjoy!

Mixed salad greens
Kohlrabi
Garlic scapes
Strawberries
Cherry tomatoes
Herb bundles
Chinese cabbage
Red lettuce
Peas

Food Note:
Kohlrabi is a member of the brassica family – the “bulb” is the part that we eat. The hard outer skin needs to be peeled off. I love it raw and plain but it’s also good steamed, sautéed, grated and put in stews.

West Side CSA for June 21, 2012

Welcome to the second week of our CSA! We hope you enjoyed your bag of produce from last week. With the rain and warm temperatures, things keep growing.

This week you’ll find:

Fresh Sugar Snap Peas
Asian Greens Mix featuring Bok Choi, Tatsoi and Chinese Cabbage
Young Onions
Beets with Beet Greens
Spinach
Cucumbers or Strawberries (next week you’ll recieve what you didn’t get this week)
Mixed salad greens
Kohlrabi
Young Garlic
Fava Beans

Tip of the week:
Fava beans are delicious, but require a bit of work up front. First of all, shell them from their pods. The beans themselves have a whitish casing which needs to be removed. Do this by putting the beans in boiling water for 5 – 10 minutes and drain. When cool enough to handle (rinse under cold water to make it go faster) use the tip of a sharp knife, make an incision in the skin and pop the bright green bean out.  I love them mixed with bowtie pasta, pesto and some dried tomatoes.   They go well with almost anything!
