this weeks’ share contains: 3 pounds of fingerling potatoes, 2 pounds of orange sweet potatoes, 1 bunch of beets, 1 bunch of collards, 2 little gem lettuces and a small bag of salad greens (baby red russian kale and fun jen cabbage), 3/4 pound of Asian eggplant
The eggplant is great cut in half lengthwise and sprinkled with olive oil and salt n pepper and oven roasted until browned. Then serve it spread on good bread or made into a dip for raw vegetables. It is great in stir-fries as well.
The fingerlings will keep for a month or more in a cloth or paper bag in your refrigerator. They are great roasted, shredded for home-fries, chunked up in stew, or par boiled and smashed and fried. The bag they are in now is biodegradable and will break down in a week or two in your fridge.
Next week will be the last box of the year. Along with your regular box you will each get a box of sweet potatoes to make up for the missed box 2 weeks ago.
