Sorrel Pesto for The last fall CSA for 2017 and preparing for the Winter CSA starting next weekend! It is that time of year where the refrigerator is filled with leftovers and there are yet a few more parties to host or attend, so try some of our most nutritious and flavorful microgreens, as they are a super food that saves space and time, besides landing a fabulous presentation. The popular herbs included can make bartending for your friends and family even more fun and delicious. Try mudddling (pressing and crushing to release aroma) an herb like thyme below your ice and top with alcohol or juice.  To your health and your pleasure, always, leslie

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

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
