2017 CSA Fall December 23rd

  • Arugula 10×10
  • Mixed Salad 10×10
  • Chervil
  • Parsley
  • Dill
  • Basil Pesto *
  • Red Sorrel Pesto*
  • Citrus Selection
  • Papaya
  • Ginger*
  • Turmeric*

And to top that off, papaya, turmeric and ginger..for fresh flavor and energy to face the chill of winter. Chervil I like to use fresh with veggies and salad as I find a bit of pain relief in its sweet aroma. Parsley, another nutrition rich green, can help relieve bloating, may fight kidney stones, gallbladder, and urinary tract infections. And it has anti-fungal and anti-bacterial characteristics.

We made a Red Sorrel Pesto, among other flavors, in hopes to send you home with a red and a green version to use at your leisure. These store easily in the freezer, just let the container sit out for about 20 minutes during recipe prep and the outer edge with defrost making it easy to scrape a tablespoon or 2 out. Then the container can be popped back into the freezer. Woot! To your health and your pleasure, always, Leslie

2017 CSA Fall December 16th – Thai Basil

• Watercress Box
• Red Sorrel Box
• Thai Basil*
• Chives
• Parsley
• Cilantro
• Chervil
• Rosemary
• Thyme
• 2 Acorn Squash
• Ginger
• Turmeric

Try a fresh Thai basil curried rice with fresh grated ginger and turmeric, black pepper and a dash of 5 Spice… I like to use the rice cooker in a similar way to a Crock Pot, not that it takes all day, but is a prepared meal from a single pot. Layer what you would like in with your rice, maybe onion and peppers, potato and carrot, cashew and raisens and chopped fresh wholesome spices. It is a great way to have leftover (well marinated) curry pot for breakfast, just stir fry with some scrambled eggs, or how I like it, with a fried egg on top. Garnish with a flourish of the Thai basil and, voila! Beautiful, nutritious and delicious!
To your health and your pleasure, always, leslie

2017 CSA Fall December 9th Papaya

2017 CSA Fall December 9th Papaya

• Watercress Box
• Baby Kale Box
• Baby Tatsoi Box
• Chervil
• Poultry Herbs
• Dill
• 2 Acorn Squash
• 1 Butternut
• Orange Sweet Potatoes
• Papaya ripe

Papaya pie! Yeah, a little different, but I wanted to share my results: skinned, deseeded and chopped papaya was tossed with juice from 2 limes, !approximately ¾ cup of brown sugar, 2 tbs of honey, 1 ½ tbs of cornstarch, plus healthy dashes of cinnamon and vanilla. This was poured into a prepared pie shell and baked on a jelly roll pan at 350F for 30 minutes. I thought it looked a little runny at end time so I dusted the top with some more cornstarch, used a spoon to gently fold that into the papaya filling and baked it for at least another 20 minutes. See the results in the photos and please overlook the tell-tale dusting trail…we thought it turned out very yummy! Maybe you will try it?
