This weeks’ share contains:
2 pounds of green snap beans, 2 pounds of shintokiwa cucumbers, 1 pound of zephyr and patty pan squash mix, 1 bunch of sweet onions, 1 bunch of beets, 1 bunch of Italian parsley, 1 pound of Austrian Crescent potatoes, 1 head of Early Jersey Wakefield Cabbage.
If anyone is interested in larger quantities of cucumbers for pickling or just eating please let me know. We have lots of them for the next week and will sell CSA members cucumbers for $20 a box (about 18#).
The beans do not need stringing. They are the first picking from these plants and they are so good! Hope you enjoy them as much as we do! The cabbage is an heirloom variety, the earliest one to head up for us each year. Makes great slaw and kraut. The onions are very mild. We use them in salads or grilled. Their flavor gets lost in heavy or long cooking.
Wash and thinly slice 2 cucumbers into rounds
thinly slice 1/2 a sweet onion
combine these in a bowl and sprinkle with kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, a teaspoon of e.v. olive oil, 2-4 tablespoons of sour cream, and a little lemon juice. Let this sit for 20 minutes before eating.
