CSA, Week 10

CSA Week 10

This week we've got:
Green Beans

And I bought a 1/3 flat of raspberries at Fred Meyer too, that according to the box were grown in Fife, WA (which is local enough for me as far as raspberries are concerned). And promptly ate an entire pint by myself. It might have been a bad idea for my currently-too-full tummy, but man was it good goin' down! :D

CSA Week 10, Detail

So pretty. The eggplant are banana-shaped. I'm not sure what to do with them that will ensure that Cory tries them. He doesn't like them. He also doesn't like beets, which is too bad. I wonder if I can "can" them without a jar. Can one Tupperware a beet? Hmm.

Also, if you have any fennel recipes that are delish and also downplay the licorice flavor, let me know. Cory doesn't like licorice and therefore doesn't like fennel, unless it's hiding somewhere. Last time I cooked with some I made a veggie stew. Maybe I'll have to do that again this time.

Ew, I hate fennel too. Unfortunately, we haven't figured out a way to make it NOT taste like black licorice.

As for eggplant, I love slicing them, dunking them in an vinegarette mix, and tossing them on the grill. Easy, delicious, and summery.

The NYT has been talking up beets like crazy lately. They're totally obsessed. Maybe the Well blog will help you out.

I like licorice, so fennel doesn't bug me, but I've only had it in the one stew, so I have some more research and experimentation to do before I decide if I really like fennel or not. At the moment I could take it or leave it.

And thanks for the link - now I'm hungry! :D
