This week your share may include…
- Broccoli: The ubiquitous green heads in the supermarket are no comparison to these flavorful beauties.
- Cauliflower: See above, WOW!
- Cimi di Rapa: These days we call any brassia family buds raab, but these greens are the real thing. A traditional italian speciality, they are technically a turnip, but harvested for only the greens and baby buds. All they need is a quick sauté in olive oil then serve them over pasta or as a simple side with a splash of balsamic vinegar.
- Anaheim Peppers: These definitely make an amazing chile relleno! And they also freeze well – see below.
- Cilantro: Tasty little bunches.
- Collard Greens: Big and beautiful, it’s always so nice to have these greens back in the fall!
- Garlic: Beautiful Chesnok in the pretty purple wrappers.
- Hot Peppers: Your choice of red jalapeño, black czech and bulgarian carrot.
- Italian Sweet & Red Bell Peppers: Several of our favorite sweet pepper varieties from Frank Morton of Wild Garden Seeds in the Italian style – Gatherer’s Gold and Stocky Red Roaster. If you’re feeling overwhelmed by all the peppers this season, all you need to do is remove the stem & seeds, chop them up and sauté them with a bit of olive oil and salt – this turns a large amount into a much more manageable size – then freeze them in single serving containers. That way you can always add the taste of summer peppers to winter meals!
- Potato: Several varieties to choose from this week.
- Tomatillos: Last chance to make salsa verde!
Coming soon… Winter Shares start the first week of November!!
