CSA Fall 2018 Week 4

In the box this week (from upper left corner, clockwise): Spicy salad mix, tatsoi, arugula, hakurei salad turnips, petite red russian kale, eggplant, escarole, sweet peppers(large share pictured).

Use first (will keep about a week): spicy salad mix, arugula eggplant,
Store a little longer (about 2 weeks): kale, peppers, turnips, tatsoi, escarole

While your produce is super fresh, it has not been washed! Please take care to always wash your vegetables well before enjoying.

Week 4 of the Fall CSA is here, along with some weather that is feeling much more fall-like! This weather is great for spending time in the kitchen, whipping up cozy soups, chilis, and firing up the oven!

Escarole can be used as lettuce, though it is a bit more bitter than your average. For this reason, some people like to cook it! A classic combination is Escarole and Bean Soup, where the creaminess of beans balances assertive escarole. Momma Priapi likes to add sausage to this recipe, if you are into that kind of thing — it’s yummy!

One of our favorite new eggplant recipes is Classic Eggplant Lasagna, a good deal less fussy than eggplant parmesan, just as delicious, and gluten free! With a jar or two of Priapi marinara from the farmstand you can elevate this dish to local artisan and serve it at a dinner party! (You can thank us later).

Wherever cooking with your CSA share takes you, we are honored to be along for the ride. Stay warm and enjoy your veggies!

CSA Fall 2018 Week 3


In the box this week (from upper left corner, clockwise): Sweet potatoes, baby corn, spicy salad mix, baby red russian kale, curly kale, jalapeno peppers, poblano peppers, cilantro, eggplant, baby turnips & greens, scallions
(large share pictured).

Use first (will keep about a week): spicy salad mix, cilantro, eggplant, baby corn
Store a little longer (about 2 weeks): kale, peppers, turnips, scallions
Store very well (a month or more): sweet potatoes

While your produce is super fresh, it has not been washed! Please take care to always wash your vegetables well before enjoying.

We have had fun thinking up names for this box, it lends itself well to a few themes!
You’ll find some petite eggplant, the very last of the season. Same goes for the baby corn — ever wondered where that stuff comes from? Now you know! True to it’s name! We have been snacking on it and eat the whole cob (after shucking) 😉

Our cilantro is ready! We thought you might enjoy having a few spicy peppers and scallions to go with this versatile and treasured herb. Too bad we can’t grow avocados here on the eastern shore, if you happen to have a few on hand, you might want to try making some Spicy Jalapeno Guacamole. Don’t like peppers? We apologize, and hope you have a spicy friend who does that you can share with!

If this is your first time trying hakurei turnips, you are in for a treat. They are fabulously mild, making them perfect for snacking on raw. We are thinning our fall crop, so they’re a bit small — at this stage, we are all about those turnip tops! They are tender and great cooked any way you like. We like them sauteed with a bit of butter. They also make a good substitute for any recipe that calls for cooked spinach. Yum!

Sweet potatoes will be on the side again this week. Did you know it is not necessary to peel organic sweet potatoes? The skin is thin and tender. Give them a good scrub and enjoy in your favorite fashion. They store best unwashed, which is why they come to you au naturel. If you pick up your share at Priapi Gardens, you will find your sweet potatoes in the farmstand. If you pick up at one of our other CSA sites, look for them nearby.

We hope you enjoy eating your veggies as much as we loved growing them!
Who are we kidding? We love eating them, too! Below, a step by step tutorial on how to enjoy baby corn 😁

Happy Wednesday to our Community of Agriculture Supporters!
Just in case you haven’t heard it lately, we are so grateful for your confidence in our ability to bring you fresh, organic vegetables each week. Thank you.

It has come to our attention that the Japanese cucumbers were not holding up so well in your boxes for those of you that pick up later in the week. We are very sorry if your cukes were soft by the time you unpacked your box, we think it was a combination of too much moisture and not enough air flow in the liner bags. Customer feedback is so important to us! Let us know how we’re doing so we can make adjustments to serve you better. Your satisfaction is our top priority, and the sooner we now about something the faster we can remedy it.

On to this week’s veggies, what a beautiful share! Leafy greens of fall are coming on strong and we are so happy to have them back. Tatsoi is an asian spinach that is delightfully mild and highly versatile; it can be enjoyed raw in a salad, sauteed, steamed, or incorporated into any dish that calls for spinach, it is also great in your favorite juice or smoothie blend.

Spicy salad mix is similar to a spring mix with a few spicy greens for a nice peppery kick. Arugula, baby kale, baby mustard, tatsoi, and mizuna make up this customer favorite.

Mustard greens also pack a spicy punch and are crazy good for you! We love them raw on a sandwich, they also saute or steam beautifully. We do NOT recommend them in juice…a few people have tried and barely lived to tell the story, but they did report being able to breathe *very* well through their noses for an extended period of time!

Your sweet potatoes prefer being stored at a warmer temperature, so they are not packed in the boxes this week. If you pick up at Priapi Gardens, you will find them in the farmstand. It you pick up at one of our other CSA sites, look for them nearby.

As a reminder, here are times and locations of various pickup sites. Boxes will be delivered this afternoon/evening to your chosen site — be sure to pick up at the one you signed up for, within the given window of time.
