Fall 2017 CSA Week 2 Share and Recipe Ideas

Posted 9/13/2017 7:08am by Christy and Chris Kantlehner.

Hello CSA friends! 

We hope you enjoyed your first CSA box last week! 

We're already on week 2 of the CSA and we've got a great assortment of produce for you this week! 

Here's what's in your box:

  • Mixed tomatoes
  • Cilantro
  • Mustard Greens
  • Hot Peppers (an assortment)
  • Scallions
  • Watermelon
  • Carrots
  • Napa cabbage
  • Sweet peppers

One of our regulars sent over a recipe this week for a Last Gasp of Summer Lemon Tomato Tart, so a huge thanks to Phil for sharing this recipe with us! Grab some fresh garlic at the stand and use the tomatoes in your share! 

Mustard greens are delicious salad greens or sauteed and served as a side to a savory dish, but if you'd rather incorporate them into a dish, try this White Bean Stew. Try substituting the scallions in your share for the onion in the recipe. Also, for that thyme that the recipe calls for, pick up a plant at the farmstand. You can use the thyme and then plant it right now in your garden as a perennial that you can enjoy next year and through the fall, too! 

It's the perfect time for a crockpot pulled pork dish. Put on your favorite BBQ pulled pork and then serve it with a side of this Cabbage Apple Winter Slaw. Use your napa cabbage, add some in-season apples and carrots!  

As for the hot peppers, we gave some tips for hot pepper uses in last week's newsletter, including a recipe for hot sauce. Give it a read and keep us posted on how you enjoy yours! 

Let us know what new dishes you try this week! 

Enjoy!
