Week 23 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: 

  • Turnips- Y’all- you MUST try the turnips. They are JUST LIKE potatoes! But ONE THIRD of the carbs and calories! Substitute turnips for potatoes in any recipe 
  • Bok Choy- more tender and silky than spinach, with a heartier stalk- so good sautéed or raw
  • Bell Peppers
  • 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. Eat raw and definitely try it sautéed or creamed.
  • Turnip Greens
  • Mustard Greens- less bitter than other greens, but with more natural flavor. TRY THEM!
  • Gourmet Salad Mix Lettuce
  • Collard Greens
  • Tatsoi- often called ‘Asian spinach’ it’s just like spinach, but milder- and way easier for farmers to grow ’round here. Use it exactly as you would use spinach! Eat raw in salads or sautéed.

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