  • Calamondin Oranges
  • Turmeric
  • Ginger
  • Nasturtium Flowers
  • Rose Geranium
  • Lemon Verbena
  • Cucumber
  • Tomatoes
  • Baby Salad Mix
  • Baby Tatsoi
  • Micro Red Cabbage
  • Micro Cilantro
  • Micro Broccoli

lamondin oranges, turmeric, ginger, tomato, cucumber, micro cilantro and baby tatsoi could all be a yummy addition to an Asian/Middle Eastern themed meal, especially a curry. Or consider using the micro cilantro for a taco night. Rose geranium and lemon verbena are great together in tea, as a syrup or in deserts, including baked goods. With the beautiful and tasty local strawberries at our Farmer’s Market right now, consider making a brew of the geranium, verbena, strawberries and a squeeze of calamondin for an exciting and delicious combo! For the best flavor infusion, do not boil the rose geranium and lemon verbena, rather heat until steamy and remove the leaves as they turn army green. Rose geranium does well soaked in yogurt for about an hour, making a nice dressing for an apple salad or fruit dip.

To your health and your pleasure, always! Enjoy

2018 CSA Spring May 12th

  • Baby Salad Mix
  • Tomatoes
  • Cucumber
  • Chef’s Chervil
  • Red Ribbed Sorrel
  • 10×10 Red Mustard
  • Micro Amaranth
  • Micro Cilantro
  • Micro Tatsoi
  • Micro Red Cabbage
  • Poultry Herb Mix
  • Mint
  • Chives
  • Marjoram

Some classic salad ingredients are included this week with a box of baby greens, tomatoes and cucumber. We like to chop the tomato and cucumber into a bowl and drizzle them with balsamic vinegar and use that combo as the “dressing” to the greens. The red mustard can make a nice side veggie for a dinner by just pan frying until wilted. They are also delicious raw, if you prefer. Consider the possibility of spring rolls this week using a selection of your microgreens, a bit of slivered mint, baby salad mix, and a chive laid in the middle. Serve with a plum sauce for dipping. (Some like these with fish sauce. A meat can be added to your liking such as cooked shrimp, chicken or beef strips.)To your health and your pleasure, always! Enjoy

  • Baby Arugula

  • Chives

With these hot dry days, consider an iced citrus mint, or cucumber mint beverage for refreshment. Torn leaves of mint and slices of citrus or cucumber can be cold brewed overnight in a container in your fridge for a light infusion. Or the mint can be brewed as a tea, allowed to cool, and then your citrus can be sliced and squeezed in. When using the Calamondin oranges, try using a pair of scissors to cut directly over your drink (salad, dish, etc).  If you want to exclude any seeds, cut over a bowl to catch the juice and skin then remove the seeds. I like to put one of the little oranges and some mint sprigs into my water bottle for the day, making for a gentle infusion.  

To your health and your pleasure, always! Enjoy
