Bloggin’ My CSA: #9 Looks Like Fall
Delivery eight went down pretty easy. The mystery green was indeed mizuna, which I don’t much care for. It makes a decent bitter green salad, but there’s only so much of it a person can eat.
Everything else was pretty standard. My kids loved the pears. We still have some cabbage left, a good portion of it went into “The World’s Best Braised Green Cabbage” from Molly Stevens’ All About Braising. It is the single best green cabbage recipe I know of, but it must be followed to the letter. Overall, a great book.
We’re approaching the end, and you tell by looking at this box
What’s in there?
- Leeks I love leeks. My wife really loves when I fry them in olive oil to make little crispy leek rings for a fish garnish.
- Cilantro: Again, herbs are always welcome.
- Tomatoes: One is severely under-ripe and will be fried.
- Peppers. Bell peppers and jalapeños. One is useless, the other is useful. Faithful readers know how I feel.
- Garlic I was once a garlic fanatic. I now appreciate garlic well enough to know not to use so much of it. Still, it’s always welcome.
- Mustard greens long and slow with pork fat is the way to go here.
- Carrots Beauties!
- Red onions
- Sweet potatoes The longest, skinniest ones I’ve ever seen.
- Squash The sure sign of fall. One butternut, one acorn. I love acorn squash.
- Jar of apple cider jelly Tasty on toast.
