Share contents this week:
1 bunch sweet onions, 1 head of cabbage, 1 bunch dill seed, 1&1/2# cucumbers, 1 pint okra, 1 pint baby squashes, 2 zucchini, 1 quart fingerling potatoes.
The sweet onions are best used raw in salads, salsa, in sandwiches. Their flavor disappears under much cooking.
Aaron prepared the best okra we’ve ever eaten at home this week. He heated a pizza stone in a hot oven, cut the okra in half lengthwise and tossed with oil, salt, and pepper, scattered it on the hot stone and roasted until crispy. The baby squashes are good this way too.
The fingerlings are “new” meaning their skins aren’t very thick yet so they don’t keep long. Store them in your fridge and for best enjoyment, eat within the week.
The cabbage and cucumbers will make a good pickle combo with the dill seed.
