Adventures in CSA 2013: Week 5 Share

Week 5

Fruit! Ladies and gentlemen, we have fruit! It's a banner week.

Week Five began today, and our share looks terrific. I hope you'll feel free to comment below to let me know what you'd make with the following:

Week 5 Produce (vegetable share, and fruit at last!)
4 or 5 cucumbers
1 head green cabbage
1 bunch tatsoi - CHALLENGE VEGETABLE
4 or 5 garlic scapes
1 head Tuscan kale
1 head lettuce
1 bunch dill
1 bunch carrots
1 pint cherries
1/2 pint blackberries
1 jar blackberry jam

I'm guessing we'll eat the fruit raw (and immediately), and I owe Dan a carrot cake, so those items are easy to get through. There's also been talk of turning some of the cucumbers into quick pickles -- with the help of that CSA dill. The tatsoi looks like a tender, teenage version of bok choy, but is apparently like spinach, and I think we'd better get to that fast before it wilts in the fridge.

I'll be back next week with the next aftermath report on our ravenous summer eating!

Ha! Angela, you and I are made for each other. I texted that link to Dan earlier in the day. Look for our version in the Week 6 recipe post, coming soon! ;)
