It’s Friday harvest time! Your shares have the following this week:
Cayenne Peppers- Salsa ?
Tomato array 🙂
Collard Greens -Here is a recipe for stuffed collard greens from the New York times. I tend to be really bad with following exact ingredients or amounts with recipes. I think the main idea with this one is to grab some sort of nut, whatever herbs you have around, rice and tomato. Personally we tend to throw random pieces of cheese into this dish as well! Don’t forget, if you are not cooking the collards with some sort of meat, use plenty of butter and even a broth to help break down the leaves as it cooks and give them that melt in your mouth taste. Don’ be afraid to leave them simmering for a long period of time. Collards are a prehistoric plant dating back to the ancient Celts, Romans and Greeks. (and probably farther for all we know.) Channel your ancient ancestry and eat some greens!
Hakurei Turnips-the first of our fall planting, these are the sweet and tender ones that you can eat raw or roasted.
Red Potatoes- I am making a nice batch of potato salad as we speak.
Basil- this is the end of it I believe.
Summer Squash- Cube and put in your stuffed collard greens.
I am not making any promises about extra stuff not being thrown in your boxes this time of year so look out! Next Saturday we will be dropping off shares in Worthington and Pittsfield but are taking the week off from attending the market. If you are a part time Pittsfield member and want to pick up next week please email us so we can set up a drop off point for your produce on Saturday. Have a great week everyone.
