Farm Share Week 3 & Mkt Share Ordering – 2014.05.21

Farm Share CSA Members – this week’s share will likely consist of: 

Radishes, Cucumbers, Turnips, Garlic Scallions, Salad Mix, Mini-Romaine lettuces (called Little Gem), Kale, & Chard

Recipe Suggestions: (always cataloged on our Recipe Page)
Turnips – we grow a very sweet and tasty variety called Hakurei. Simple Saute with Greens (us any green, including the turnip tops), Roasted Hakurei Turnips with Israeli Couscous, Hashed Turnips with Pork Chops, Turnip Fries (though we pick them at baby stage, so too small for real fry shape. Slice into disks like chips for this.)
Garlic Scallions – treat like Green Onions/Scallions but tastes like Garlic. It is the garlic plant before it bulbs up. Grilled, Green Garlic PancakesGarlic Scallion Noodles, Garlic Scallion Spaghetti (these call for scallions and garlic, but you have it, two-in-one), and a host of recipe ideas from Saveur
Little Gem – Hot on the Foodie scene, these Little Gems are like miniature Romaine lettuces with a taste like a Butterhead lettuce. Crisp, sweet, and versatile, they can be enjoyed raw or cooked. We have red and green. Recently featured in the magazine Bon Appetit, here are recipe suggestions: Little Gems in a Frying PanLittle Gem Salad with Lemon VinaigretteLittle Gem, Feta, & Cumin Salad
Radishes – Radish and Butter Sandwich, Pickled Radish with Green Onion (sub our green garlic)
Chard – In general, treat this like Spinach or Kale. It is generally under appreciated. Or get creative: Chard & Chipotle Tacos, Linguine with Walnuts & Chard, Farmers Market CSA Quiche
Kale – Kale Salad with Pecorino & Currants
Salad DressingMustard Vinaigrette
