Week 19 Farmily CSA Harvest List & Recipes

admin Allenbrooke Farms, Farm Fresh News & Updates, Farmily, Recipes, Spring Hill Farm

Here’s what you can expect at this week’s Farmily CSA pickups: 

  • Turnip Greens (These are the best tasting greens! Try them creamed or sautéed. Farmer Dan says y’all need to branch out and try these and ‘learn how good turnip greens are’. Give the man a hand and get you some at pickup. Lots of recipes below!)
  • Purple Sweet Potatoes (they taste just like the classic sweet potatoes you all know and love, but are higher in anti-oxidants)
  • Tatsoi (it’s JUST like spinach, y’all- except easier for us to grow! Cook it exactly how you would cook or not cook spinach. Great raw in salads, sautéed, wilted- all the same things that you do with spinach)
  • Radishes
  • Bell Peppers (sweet tasting classic bell peppers in fun colors- Green, White, Lime Green, Yellow, Red, and Purple)
  • Yukon Gem Potatoes (your classic golden all purpose potato)
  • Kennebec Potatoes (chefs say these make the best fries and baked potatoes- classic white potato)
  • Basil (store just like you would cut flowers- in a small jar or vase with their stems in water. I keep on my windowsill above my sink with my tomatoes)
  • Red Russian Kale- it’s back! Our favorite kale! It is sweeter & milder and less ‘kale-y’ tasting than any other kale
  • Arugula-flavorful, peppery green. A favorite in salads, but also eaten on pizzas and in pastas
  • Mesclun Salad Mix- the French approach to a salad mix. Zesty, flavorful cut salad green mix.
  • Rainbow Swiss Chard- the best green! like a big flavorful spinach leaf. Ea
    t raw and definitely try it sautéed or creamed.
  • Turnips (with greens attached

All are hand harvested by us and brought to you the same day. Farm fresh, Certified Organic, and full of love!
