Adventures in CSA 2013: Week 5 Share
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!
