Pretend you’re a part of my CSA — here are some info sheets with recipes for you!

One of my most FAVORITE discoveries of this CSA season: Crisp, mild, delicious Hakurei turnips.  Pic borrowed from the blog Cibo e Familia (Food and Family) who also discovered Hakurei turnips via her own CSA!

Every week I make info sheets for my CSA members.  We receive eight different items and I choose three of them to highlight — usually the more unusual items in the week’s basket.  It might be a long shot, but I thought maybe y’all would be interested to take a peek, either to see what you’re missing, or to give you ideas on how to use some more uncommon produce items!

Week of 02/13/13 — Featuring Romanesco, Hakurei turnips, and Swiss chard.

Week of 02/20/13 — Featuring Wheatberries*, Tuscano kale, and fresh Fennel.

Week of 02/27/13 — Featuring Broccoli di Ciccio, Mizuna, and Cilantro.

Week of 03/06/13 — Ummm… I accidentally did a “save” instead of “save as” while writing over the top of this document and lost it.  It featured Mustard greens, as well as more ideas for Mizuna and Cilantro — the last two ended up NOT being in our basket for that week, after all…  Instead were Red Russian Kale and new-to-me Quelites (which is a spinach-like leaf of the young quinoa plant).

Week of 03/13/13 — Featuring a recipe for Easter Egg Radishes and Cilantro, as well as info and recipes for Dried Red Chiles and Dried Beans.


*As in, whole grain wheat.  I didn’t partake, obviously, but provided preparation ideas and recipes for others who could!
