2018: Week 16


Happy September and Happy Tumbleweed Tuesday! Thank you for sticking with us through the Fall. Our CSA has dropped by more than half in member numbers. And while this means relief from the enormous harvests, it doesn’t mean any less bounty. Some of our favorite vegetables arrive in the Fall: cabbage, winter squash, carrots, turnips and other roots.

Don’t be fooled by the look of the Jimmy Nardello Peppers, one of our favorite peppers. The Jimmies are the long red peppers in your box. They are very sweet: enjoy them raw, roast them, pickle them, or slice them in half and grill them.

One of our go-o recipes from our dear friend Eileen is Oven Roasted San Marzano Tomatoes. Our favorite way to prepare them is to cut them in half and lay them on a baking sheet, cut side up. Drizzle with salt, pepper, olive oil, chopped garlic, thyme, and oregano to taste, and slow cook them at 250 for about 2 hours. They’re great eaten like that or put them in blender or food processor and turn it into sauce! (no boiling necessary!)
