CSA Share: Week 10 and mid-summer recipe ideas

This Friday marks the beginning of the 10th week of produce shares at the farm.  Your share will  likely include the following.

Potatoes, tomatoes, sweet peppers, tomatillos, Chinese cabbage, eggplant and hot peppers.

U-pick-

Flowers, herbs, cherry tomatoes, green and wax beans.

We are anticipating that some of you may not be that familiar with utilizing tomatillos, and/or eggplant that regularly.  I will be posting links to some great recipes below.

RECIPE IDEAS-

Tomatillo– Learn more about this wonderful “little tomato“, which is the literal translation for tomatillo.  You are probably most familiar with it in the form it is most often  served, as salsa verde , with a side of chips.  We here at Sandbrook Meadow like to live a little on the wild side of life, so when we are given tomatillos we like to think a little outside of the box.  We hope you try some of the following recipes.  We have tried some, but not all of them…let us know your favorite, or a new one we don’t even know about!

Eggplant– Or “Aubergine” as I knew it growing up…Is native to India and generally falls in the “love it or leave it” family.  We choose to love it and so should you!
