CSA Fall 2018 Week 5

In the box this week (from upper left corner, clockwise): Sweet peppers, cilantro, mustard greens, dandelion greens, spicy mix, red russian kale, hakurei turnips, dragon radishes, joi choi (large share pictured).

Use first (will keep about a week): spicy mix, cilantro, turnip greens
Store a little longer (about 2 weeks): kale, peppers, mustard, dandelion, joi choi
Store very well (a month or more): turnips, radishes

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

It is hard to believe the Fall CSA is halfway through! Now might be a good time to consider signing up for the winter season, if you haven’t already. Because we are limited to growing indoors, it is the season the least number of shares are available –and that we want fresh leafy greens the most! Secure your share today!

Have you tried roasting your hakurei turnips yet? It is *the best* way to enjoy them. Dragon radishes also roast beautifully and the two together make an unusual & appealing color combination on your plate! Try this recipe!

Italian dandelion greens are a superfood that is certainly worth learning to love. Not to be confused with the dandelions that grow in your yard (also edible), the italian variety is a member of the chicory family; we purchase the seeds and plant them intentionally! These greens pack cleansing & alkalizing properties that your body will love! Citrus helps to balance their bitter flavor, so a Dandelion Green and Citrus Salad like this one may be just the ticket to starting your new love affair with italian dandelion greens! Alternately, you can prepare them in a classic italian fashion, Spicy and Sauteed.

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 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 😁
