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
Cucumbers or Strawberries (next week you’ll recieve what you didn’t get this week)
Mixed salad greens
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!
