CSA Week 3

Posted 8/8/2011 9:03am by Gregg Keckler.
Dear Folks,
    This week's shares will include: cantaloupe, peppers, tomatoes, plums, jam,. sweet corn, and a mystery item.

We like giving the mystery item because it really helps us give different things to each group.  This helps when we have just a few of some things.  The peppers this week could be bell peppers or sweet banana peppers, but no hot peppers, yet.  Use the tomatoes in everything.  I made a very good tomato, onion, cucumber, and pepper salad using red wine vinegar, sugar, dill and oregano.  These kinds of dishes don't require a lot of any one vegetable. 
  The jam is made from our own fruit.  Enjoy some of the mixed varieties that Gregg made this year.
  Our corn is a very good sweet corn.  We pay a neighbor to grow the corn for us.  We buy the seeds and he plants and maintains it for us.  We have Incredible (a yellow variety), Mira (a bi-color variety), and Argent (a white corn)  We love these variety.  The are great sweet corn and will keep their sweetness for several days.
Have a great week of good food.
