Farm Share, Week 5, & Mkt Share Ordering…2014.06.02

Farm Share CSA Members – this week’s share will likely consist of (NEW ITEMS!): 

Garlic Scapes (take a deep breath…see below for what these are), Summer Squash,  Broccoli, Cucumbers, Cabbage (traditional), Curly Kale, Onions, Salad Mix, Lettuce Mix.

Recipe Suggestions: (always cataloged on our Recipe Page)
Garlic Scapes – a tender, mild part of the Garlic plant, these are best sauteed with butter and salt until soft. Mix with anything: pasta, greens, protein of your choice…Amazing. Also, roast or make Garlic Scape Pesto.
Summer Squash – again, we prefer this tender squash prepared by a gentle saute with butter, salt, and onion and/or garlic. Or try it this way: Summer Squash Saute, or Shaved Summer Squash Salad (omit or sub for the arugula), or Summer Squash with Quinoa Salad & Walnuts
Broccoli – hands down, we love it Roasted (feel free to omit bread crumbs).
Cabbage – we love Kimchi so much, we really want to encourage everyone to make a small batch. You’ll need to pick up some fish sauce or substitute, some red pepper flakes, and do some chopping. Don’t overcomplicate it – here is a simple Kimchi recipe. You can even skip the sit-with-salt-for-two-hours step. Chop cabbage, sprinkle salt, massage it until soft and moist, add other ingredients. Stuff into a jar. Put it straight in the fridge if you are freaked out by letting it sit on the counter for a few days. This recipe calls for onions that are in the share this week. Feel free to also put the garlic scapes in here, and omit the huge radish. Kimchi is our preferred way to eat cabbage. Serve on the side of any meal, or put on top of rice noodles, or alongside eggs. One head of cabbage will make just a small jar – enough to get a taste of this style of eating.
Cucumber – Cucumber Salad with Vinegar & Dill
Salad Dressing Creamy Lemon Pepper Parmesan Dressing
Kale – Curly Kale Chips are great because all the crevices of the curly leaves hold the seasonings. Try these Kale Chips or these Kale Chips.
