West Hartford CSA Pickup Week 18October 11, 2012 at 3:08 pm | Posted in Uncategorized | 1 Comment
Farm Day is this Sunday! All year we share our season with you from a distance- making salsa in our kitchens while you make salsa in yours, mixing goat cheese in with our beets while you mix it with yours. This weekend we would love to celebrate the harvest with you in person. Scroll down below the harvest notes for more details about how to join us.
Radishes Eat ’em raw or try sauteing or roasting these pink beauties.
Beets There are so many things you can make with beets and each of them turn out in gorgeous splenor. This week you may want to try them shredded raw or cubed, lightly boiled and cooled on a bed of arugula with walnuts and chevre. Mmmm.
Collards Not feeling so inspired by collards? Try this… http://www.saveur.com/article/Recipes/Yeabesha-Gomen-Ethiopian-Collard-Greens
Leeks These mild alliums are back! They go well in soup, eggs, casseroles or just about any concoction that you might put onions in.
Acorn Squash You will receive an assortment of winter squash this fall and acorns are a popular favorite.
Jester Squash (Large Shares Only) This beautiful winter squash cooks like any other. Try roasting it slicing it in half, coating it in olive oil and then roasting it in the oven before turning it into soup, stuffed squash, curry or cubing it for a side dish on its own.
Onions These onions store really well so don’t feel rushed to eat them up.
Arugula This sharp mustard green is fantastic raw in salad and you can also try adding it to cooked dishes. We plan to make an Arugula pesto this Sunday for the Farm Day fresh cobb oven pizzas with our goat cheese.
Hot Peppers We are expecting freezing temperatures tomorrow night so we picked all the rest of the hot peppers to prevent them being lost to cold. You have now gotten to taste each of our hot peppers so this week you get to choose your favorite.
Cilantro This herb is great with bean dishes, stews, curries and chutnies.
