August 11 or 14 CSA

Share contents: 6 ears sweet corn, 6 sweet Italian peppers, 2 barbarella heirloom eggplant, 1 pound red onions, 1 bunch gold beets, 1 gallon cherry tomatoes.

The cherry tomatoes make great sauce as well as fresh eating. They are also great dried and kept for later or eaten as snacks. We dry ours in a 150 degree oven. We cut them in half and arrange in a single layer. It takes anywhere from 6-10 hours. Definitely check on them after a few hours to be sure they’re not burning and to rotate the trays.

The barbarella eggplant is tender and makes great sauces or dips because once roasted, it purées nicely.

I hope you enjoy the sweet corn as much as we do. It does have a worm in the top of most ears but just cut the tip off and rinse the ears before cooking. We didn’t spray the corn with anything as so the worms are there.
