We’re already in week four of the CSA and summer’s only just begun. This week’s bounty from my Sport Hill Farm CSA.
- 1 bag of beet greens
- 1 head of lettuce
- 1 bunch of garlic scapes
- 1 bunch of Swiss chard
- 1 summer squash (it’s really summer now!)
- 1 bag of broccoli florets
Patti’s most excited about the summer squash. It’s a new color!
I’m excited about the beet greens, which are best when they’re young, as these are. A light steaming or sauté should do it. Besides being delicious, the greens are high in vitamins A, C, and K, and beta carotene. (No health claims implied.)
I’m also happy about the scapes. I’ve been using them in place of garlic in a lot of recipes while waiting for the harvest. I’m hoping to make some of them into a nice pesto to put by for the dark days when the garlic gives out.
I wonder what I’ll make this week. Suggestions and requests welcome.
