Happy new year! The veggie crew is happy to be back harvesting for CSA after a two week break.
Some highlights of the share this week:
Those of you who were part of our Fall CSA may have become familiar with some of the chicory varieties we have here at the farm. This week there are four chicories in rotation: Pan di Zucchero, Bellesque frisee, Cornet de Bordeaux escarole, and Castlefranco variegated radicchio. The chicories as a whole can be used in a variety of ways. Of the chicories we're growing, escarole and frisee are the two best for straight salads. Radicchio, sugarloaf, and castlefranco are all somewhat similar with tighter heads, and thick, sweet, crunchy ribs. Josh wrote a great article on chicories with tips and tricks – read it HERE.
GOLDEN GLOBE TURNIPS
The Golden Globe turnip has a delicious, slightly sweet flavor. These turnips can be eaten raw in a salad, boiled, steamed, mashed or roasted. They are especially delicious alongside carrots. The greens have been included and are also delicious. I love to sauté them and eat alongside the roasted turnips.
See you in two weeks!
