CSA Basket #17: September 26, 2012

CSA Box #16, 2012

CSA Box #16, 2012

In the box:

  • Arugula, bunched
  • Corn
  • Carrots
  • Grapes, Canadice {we love these}
  • Kale, Red Russian
  • Onions, sweet
  • Peppers, Red
  • Potatoes, Yukon Gold
  • Radish, French Breakfast 
  • Spearmint, Kentucky Colonel
  • Tomatoes, Cherry

Not pictured: Garlic, extra grapes, and 2 giant bunches of collard greens. Mine did not do well this summer, so these will be nice for collard wraps and stir fries.

I just cleaned an embarrassing amount of expired produce from the last few weeks out of the fridge. Sigh. I really hate wasting food and it was unintentional, but there’s been so much going on over the last few weeks. At least the worms in the compost bin will benefit.

Now that it’s almost fall weather, I’ll start making soups and stews that will help use up some of the produce. And after Jill Nussinow’s presentation at Portland VegFest, I now am seriously thinking about getting a pressure cooker. I may need to check out her book first: The New Fast Food: The Veggie Queen Pressure Cooks Whole Food Meals in Less than 30 Minutes.

What was in the prior boxes?
