BROCCOLI OR SHISHITOS: Farm gets shishitos, everyone else gets sprouting broccoli. The broccoli is great for sautéing or throwing in the oven, probably not the best for steaming as it is hard to get it to stay crisp in the CSA transfer. I made some with sesame oil and garlic! For shisitos, throw them in a pan or on the grilll and cook them in olive oil until they are a little blistered/charred. Sprinkle with salt and pop in your mouth. The best!! You can also eat them raw.
PASTE TOMATOES: First of the season!! These are GREAT for making sauce!! Lots of meat, less juice. So flavorful. I really do just like to make a quick at home sauce. Soon we will have these in bulk for canning!
MOUNTAIN ROSE NEW POTATOES: Perfect little young potatoers.
LACINATO KALE: The only green (besides basil) in the share! Great for kale salad or sautéd.
JIMMY NARDELLO SWEET PEPPERS: No heat! These Italian heirloom peppers have fantastic flavor, are so sweet and are great in all kinds of dishes both raw and cooked. They are soooooo good!
STOCKY ROASTER PEPPERS: The heirloom answer to the bell. Not fully colored yet but still sweet, crunchy and delicious. Eat raw with hummus or in a salad, roast or sauté. So many different applications. Throw on a pizza?
SQUASH: One of the final weeks of this quintessential taste of summer! Appreciate it while you still have it!
RED ONION: For your daily uses!
SUNGOLD TOMATOES: Just so tasty. I seriously can't keep these long enough to cook with them as I et them like candy but they really are fantastic roasted or on pizza.
EGGPLANT: Two different types–long and globe. The globe eggplant is your typical eggplant that should be salted an hour or two before using . The long eggplant, originating from Asia, has very few seeds. We harvest these guys young as they aren't pithy, are less bitter, have fewer seeds and are more delicious. Always cook eggplant, you want it to be soft, tender and creamy. Also, know that eggplant hates to be cooled, and if it is stored improperly it gets bitter. We never put ours in the cooler to ensure we give you the best quality!
