S&G 1


It's week two of the veggie box. Here's what we got this week:

CSA Week Two

You can go click on the picture to read the notes - I labeled everything. But here it is in list form:

New Potatoes

I do not know what to do with the arugula, kohlrabi, dill or beets. But I will scour the internets and find recipes (and if you happen to have any to share, let me know!). I've never had purple potatoes, which is kind of silly, but you can't find them at my local grocery store. I've also not had kohlrabi, which I hear tell tastes like broccoli stems. And I just tried the arugula and am... cautious of it. It's a funny leaf - bitter and spicy and peppery all at the same time. For someone who is used to green leafy things tasting like lettuce, it surprised me, even though I knew it was going to be different.

And turnip leaves are so pretty and lacy. I never knew that either. Oh, the things you learn about the food you eat when you don't get it at the grocery store. :D
