Dear Folks,

What to expect in your CSA boxes this week.  How about strawberry preserves?

STRAWBERRIES

summer squash/zucchini

Lettuce mix

French Breakfast radishes

Rainbow Swiss chard

 

The breakfast radishes are very mild.  In France (so I am told) they eat them dipped in a herb-butter for breakfast or as appetizers.  I love them  dipped in salt.

Chard is an excellent substitute for spinach.  I like it sauted with butter and a little garlic or green onion or you can chop the leaves in a raw salald.  If you saute it, you can use the stalks also, but cook them a little longer then the leaves so that they will be tender.

There will be a couple other things in the shares as well..so be surprised! 

 

If you have any questions about any fruits or vegetables that you get, please let me know. 

 

See you on Saturday, June 20
