2016: CSA Box Week 12

Tomatoes are (finally!) here, and we’re so excited! There are just a couple in your box, but you’ll be seeing many more in the weeks to come. This week also contains sweet potato greens, which you’ve maybe (probably?) never cooked with before. The true sweet potatoes will start making an appearance in September, they’re sizing up underground, but we’re always scouring the fields for rare and unusual items that we’d never be able to find for sale. We encourage you to try them out, and also give yourself a break if you don’t quite get to them. A link about cooking with sweet potato greens is below, along with another recipe for stuffed peppers!

This week’s box:

To pick in the fields:

  • Husk cherries
  • Shishito peppers
