Week Twenty-One: Savoy Cabbage

Week 21!!! Savoy cabbages, gorgeous as they are...

You know your basic green and purple cabbages right? So why the Savoy Cabbage? Well, the contrasting shades of green, combined with the deeply crinkled texture of the leaves, make savoy cabbages ...

CSA Week Nineteen: Roasting Vegetables

Instead of focusing on one crop this week, I thought I might bring your attention to one of my favorite ways to eat veggies through the Autumn and Winter months...roasting! Even at it's most basic level, roasting vegetables is quick, easy and makes every one of them taste better, even the one I despise (brussel sprouts). There are some awesome recipes here as well, for adding them to omelets and pastas, turning them into soups and adding a variety of flavors including cider and balsamic vinegar.

Since we don't have a new crop this week, I thought I would write about one of my favorite ways to cook vegetables over the fall and winter months. Roasting vegetables is the equivalent joy of gri...

Fennel? Another one of those oddly shaped crops that may leave you bewildered. But take a quick look at all the health benefits it brings and you'll be trying to find ways to work it into your di...

CSA Week Fifteen: Sweet Peppers

So it's two for one week (or in truth, I was away at our farmer's second home,North Bay, this past week and am playing catch up). Here is this week's post on Sweet Peppers and be sure to take a look at the previous post on Tomatoes!

Sweet bell peppers are another vegetable in the nightshade family of plants, along with our other peppers, eggplant, tomatoes and potatoes. Bell Peppers are perhaps the most common pepper we see ...

Ok....still have some eggplant lying around? Here are some more recipes to utilize all the great varieties of eggplant we are seeing.

I had to laugh when I read "eggplants are nutritionally challenged" in my produce book. It follows (and redeems itself) by saying " but is valued in vegetarian dishes for their meaty flavor and te...

CSA Week Twelve: Jalapenos

We've moved onto Jalapenos. Do you know they can turn red if you leave them out in the field long enough? But who can wait!

Botanically, jalapenos are fruit pods from the nightshade family in the genus, capsicum. Jalapenos are mostly available green, turning red as they mature, but sometimes waiting for them to turn re...

Still have cucumbers? Make a quick cucumber salad that will refresh any summer's day:

3-4 medium cucumbers
1/2 cup thinly sliced onion rings
1/2 T celery seed
1 tsp. salt
1 cup vinegar
1/2 cup white sugar

Wash and slice cucumbers thinly. Combine with onion, celery seed and salt. Mix together vinegar and sugar, stirring until sugar dissolves. Pour over cucumber mixture. Cover and refrigerate at least 24 hours before serving.

CSA Week Ten : Basil

Yikes! It's Week Ten already!! Did you love the aroma of all that fresh basil this week? Basil doesn't stay fresh long, so use it or put it up within a week. Here is a recipe for the standard pesto and a few uses for it!
http://stonerunfarmcsa.wordpress.com/2014/08/01/csa-week-ten-basil/

Basil is one herb you want to use or store within a week. Because the oils in the leaves are the source of that wonderful aroma and taste, drying basil is not recommended. When using it in cookin...

{Jen again} Would love to see your photos of your braided onions if you do it! (see below video). Here is my first attempt: Not as tight, but pretty darn good. I imagine hanging them on the back of the pantry door to snip off one when I need it.

How to plait onions

It's Jen (your CSA Blogger). Yesterday when I picked up my share they were braiding the onions on the barn floor. Of course I couldn't resist a try. I'm not sure which video Salena was using, but I found this one that does the trick. At the end she gives you a quick tutorial on how to braid or plait if you've never actually braided before. Give it a try!

If you've ever wondered about plaiting onions to store them through the winter, this clip shows you how. If you can plait hair (or string or rope), you can p...

Since we aren't particularly focusing on one crop this week, I though I would just write a little bit about what is going on in my kitchen with our crops. Right now we are seeing curly leaf kale ad...
