CSA 2018 – WEEK #21

October 15, 2018

A huge thank you to everyone who came out to the farm on Sunday to help us celebrate our CSA community! It was a beautiful day and we loved meeting you. Please note that there are five more weeks to go this CSA season. The final pick-up will take place the week BEFORE Thanksgiving. Keep your eye out for a separate e-mail coming from us this week with more information about the Winter CSA share.

THIS WEEK IN THE SHARES…

Sweet Potatoes – Freshly dug and more to come!  Remember that sweet potatoes cannot be stored in the refrigerator.  They need to stay above 50 degrees or they will get cold damage. It’s best to keep them on the counter or in a cool (not cold) spot.
Storage: In a cool (NOT cold) spot.  Do not refrigerate.  Uses: Cooked When to use:Within 3 days.Mustard Mix – The first fall harvest of this new member favorite!  It’s perfect for salads at this size.
Storage: In airtight storage in the refrigerator. Uses: Raw When to use: Within 3 days.

Red Radishes – Try roasting these!  They’re delicious (and beautiful) when roasted in the oven.
Storage: In airtight storage in the refrigerator. Separate the roots from the greens.  Uses:Raw/Cooked When to use: Within 3 days.

Scallions – Wonderful in stir-fries, salads and roasted dishes.
Storage: In airtight storage in the refrigerator. Uses: Raw/Cooked When to use:Within 3 days.

Escarole – A chicory that is just the slightest bit bitter when you eat it raw.  That bitterness disappears when cooked.  You must make the escarole and white bean soup recipe below!  It’s the best way to use escarole this time of year.  The inside leaves are the most tender, so save a few of those to eat raw in a salad with a sharp cheese and dressed with olive oil and lemon juice.  Yum!
Storage: In airtight storage in the refrigerator. Uses: Raw/Cooked When to use:Within 5 days.

Cabbage – So versatile, and it lasts a long time in your fridge!  The recipe for sautéed cabbage below is super simple and delicious.  A perfect fall side dish.
