Last week went by fast! This time of year always seems to fly by for me. I didn’t get a shot of last week’s CSA share, but I don’t think you’ll have a hard time imagining what it would look like.
Here’s the breakdown from this week’s share:
Apples: I was really excited to receive these! I will be making into a pie or crisp next week. Right now the apples are holding up fine in the crisper. For more information about storing apples, check out last Friday’s Fresh Pick post.
Carrots: I made a Carrot, Ginger and Cardamom Soup with this week’s batch. The soup turned out great, so I will likely be making it again with the carrots from my own garden when they are ready.
Kale: We had one last dinner outside with the neighbours this past weekend. I made a kale salad with edamame, carrot, red pepper and a soy-ginger dressing.
Leeks: I’ll be using the leeks in my second round of carrot soup.
Peppers: These went in the kale salad mentioned above.
Plums: Two types of fruit this week! This is not typical of most CSA boxes I know. Yummy on their own.
Potatoes: I roasted these with herbs and olive oil for our dinner outside.
Radishes: The radishes were small compared to the ones we received earlier in the season. I grated them on a couple of salads for crunch and crispness.
Tomatoes: This batch of tomatoes were really good. I’m not sure the variety – they were like mini Roma tomatoes. I had them with ricotta cheese on toast for breakfast a few days this week. The rest went into salads.
Garlic: Flavour for soups, salad dressings and a stew.
Shoots: Soup garnish and salads.
Summer Squash: I still haven’t cooked this one. I think I will roast it with some other vegetables that I get this week. Maybe one last summer stew.
How are you feeling now that fall has arrived? Are things getting busy for you?
