CSA 2010 Week 4
This week's haul was: lettuce, basil, baby bok choy, mesclun, broccoli rabe, swiss chard, and frisee. (It was the first week that the different sized shares actually had a different selection, so there was actually more to choose from.) I also took advantage of some of the add ons, and bought two gorgeous quarts of strawberries, some coffee, and some nitrate-free bacon.
So far, we've enjoyed some great salad; I love their mesclun mix. It's easily the best lettuce mix I've ever tasted. It's just the right amount of peppery mixed with the green. One quart of the berries is already curing in the freezer (started on a cookie sheet for hopefully ease of separation down the line), and I'm currently enjoying fresh berries marinated in balsamic and basil with just a touch of creme fraiche. Absolute heaven.
Last week, we ended out the week with a raw salad of baby bok choy, turnips, and radishes. It was really great, including the turnips. I didn't consider myself a turnip person before this month, but I'm definitely a convert.
