CSA 2012: Week 3


June 13, 2012 by Sara Kreidler

Each week, I post a photo of one “featured” item from our weekly CSA box and provide a list of all of the contents of the week’s box.  Later in the week, I post either a cooking or canning recipe that uses the featured ingredient.  You know, sort of like Sesame Street’s letter of the day.

Ok, so I still owe you all the promised CSA Week 2 recipe for strawberry jam.  I’m working on it.  It will hopefully go up tomorrow. In the meantime, I picked up the latest and greatest CSA box.  The third week’s featured CSA item is (drumroll please): garlic scapes.

In breaking news, I really need to wax and buff my kitchen counter.  Sheesh.  Anyway, garlic scapes: they look like little green snakes, but they’re actually the green shoots that grow out of garlic bulbs in the early summer. They’re very pungent, and my friend Hilary sent me a recipe this week for garlic scape pesto, which I plan to make and post about later this week.

This week’s box includes:

  • Romaine lettuce
  • Mesclun greens
  • Red leaf lettuce
  • Rainbow chard
  • Spinach
  • Beets
  • Rhubarb
  • Strawberries
  • Scallions
  • Garlic scapes
  • Mint
  • Curly Parsley
