Fall CSA Week 1: September 5th

Posted 9/6/2017 7:20am by Christy and Chris Kantlehner.

Hey there Fall CSA members! 

Thank you so much for all of your support in joining the CSA! We hope that you enjoy the variety that comes in your box each week and have some fun experimenting with some new finds that you may not have picked up at the stand otherwise. 

Each week you'll get an email with some recipe ideas for the produce in your box. Many of these recipes are our favorites that we have enjoyed over the years and many of them are suggestions from past and present CSA members. So...send us your successes when you are enjoying your boxes. We'd love to share them with the group! And let us know how you like the recipes we include. 

****If you forgot to pick up your CSA share today, you can stop by the farmstand during regular hours (10 a.m. - 6 p.m.) on Wednesday to grab your box! (We will not donate forgotten shares until Thursday night this week since it was the first week/Tuesday after Labor Day/first day of school for lots)

Now onto the fun. Here is your first week of the 2017 Fall Boxed CSA Share: 

  • arugula
  • sweet peppers
  • carrots
  • lettuce
  • cucumbers
  • cherry tomatoes
  • summer squash
  • hot peppers (2-3 of your choosing)
  • banana peppers
  • scallions

Give this Summer Squash and Corn Chowder a try with that squash and those scallions in your share. We are hoping to get some more sweet corn from Cook's Valley Farm, so you might be able to grab it from the farmstand while you're there. And the bacon - we've got bacon! - so just ask at the stand and they'll grab it for you. 

Sliced banana peppers are delicious on sandwiches, in tacos, on pizza, and on salads. I love to do a quick pickle with them to make them last a bit longer in the refrigerator (they'll last about 3 months this way.) Enjoy!  

We've added a few more cheeses to the farmstand, in particular a cheddar from Narragansett Creamery. Create a delicious salad with this one (or stick with the ever delicious chevre). Add your lettuce, sliced cukes, cherry tomatoes (if they make it home), carrotsarugula, and peppers, too! 

And if you need a nice comfort meal with the rain on the way this week, stuffed peppers are always a hit! What way do you make yours? Here is basic stuffed pepper recipe for you to try! 

If you haven't already, you can follow us on Facebook to keep up to date with some of the events that we will be having at the farm and take a second to sign up for our general email here

Hope you have a great week!
