CSA, Week 3

Posted By on Wed, May 12, 2010 at 5:38 PM

I couldn't make it to the Botanic Garden to pick up this week's CSA share, so a friend picked it up for me. The take was so bountiful that I wonder if I got a full share by mistake instead of my usual half share.

In the bag this week: radishes, turnips, carrots, a head of cabbage, basil, salad greens, and red potatoes.

As for last week, I ate the lettuce and radishes in salads. I also sauteed some of the green onions and radishes. I froze the strawberries and the herbs. I also used up week one's sweet potatoes in a lemongrass-sweet potato soup.

Pam Denney gave me the idea for the soup, though I don't think the linked recipe above is the one she used.

Also on the plate pictured above, at front, is a Korean pancake, using greens from the onions and an egg from Flora Farms. Because I was finishing the soup at the same time I was cooking the pancake, the timing was off and the pancake suffered for it. I ate it anyway.
