What’s in Week Two

September 25th:

This week Chelsea is in charge of shares…Same time, same place, new food!

This week will be loaded with some yummy staples for the pantry.

Garlic, gourmet cipollini onions and shallots!  Fresh Bay leaves you can use fresh or dry for later use.  Spaghetti squash and possible summer squash.  A mix of kale for juicing, sauteing or making kale chips or kale salad (we’ll post a recipe).  Slicing tomatoes and possible cherry tomatoes.  Fresh Carrots (silly, of course fresh) great cooked in some honey.  We are sending you with a small sample of our local honey to try as well.  Beans if we are lucky this week, but they are few and far between right now!  Grilling peppers (Ancho & Santa Fe) and sweet peppers.  Cilantro and beet micro-greens are growing now for you in week two!

This week our herb will be Stevia.  It’s 400 times sweeter than sugar!  So much better for you.  It’s great added to smoothies green or fruit.  If you don’t want to use it right now, dry it on the stem and once dry, crumple the dry leaves off the stem and save for later.  Remember, a little goes a long way!

Sometimes when we put together a share, there may an item missing.  This could be because it wasn’t ready like were hoping for or some other reason.  But don’t worry, we will make up for it!

As the week goes on we’ll add to the list!
