Eggplant Eggplant lovers are having a great season. The haul is beginning to peter out but we should have small amounts of eggplant in the weeks to come.
Tomatoes This week you are receiving cherry tomatoes, slicing tomatoes, and paste tomatoes. The paste tomatoes are drier than slicing tomatoes. They cook down easily for sauce, ketchup, paste, or thick salsas. The slicing tomatoes can also be used to make those same dishes, they just require a little more cooking and are particularly delicious fresh. Cherries of course are flavor packed for raw snacks but also cook into incredibly rich dishes.
Leeks Last season’s survey of CSA members turned up a request for more leeks so we planted a lot of them. We hope they are fitting in nicely with your meals!
Parsley It would be a good week to make tabouli. Chop tomatoes, green peppers, and any cucumbers that you might have left with parsley and cooked bulgar. Serve cold.
Cherry Bomb Peppers These hot peppers have a deliciously complex flavor. They are the main ingredient in our Bomb Jelly and they also work well in salsa, curries, stir-fries, or any other spicy dish.
Green Bell Peppers Green peppers sweeten and turn colored with time. We hope enough will have turned by next week to deliver them.
Summer Squash The plants just keep on giving!
