Week 14 Farmily CSA Harvest List & Recipes

admin Allenbrooke Farms, Harvest List, Recipes, Spring Hill Farm

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

  • Zucchini (get out your spiralizers! Try zoodles! Use it instead of noodles in lasagna! Make zucchini bread!)
  • Cucumbers (see of the best tasting we have ever had, so sweet and delicious)
  • Okra (fry it up y’all)
  • Heirloom Tomatoes (these are on the greener side, you can let them ripen at home, or eat them green!)
  • Jalapeno Peppers (they are pretty dang hot this year)
  • Bell Peppers (sweet tasting classic bell peppers in fun colors- Green, White, Lime Green, Yellow, Red, and Purple)
  • Red Norland Potatoes (smaller red potatoes, naturally creamy and buttery. we store ours in the fridge unwashed. do NOT store near onions! Great in potato salad, roasted, or mashed)
  • Yukon Gem Potatoes (your classic all purpose 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)
  • Cayenne Peppers
  • Yellow Summer Squash
  • Butternut Squash (this is another winter squash that will keep for a very long time!)

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

Basil Pistou (this is how I preserve my basil- put in ice cube trays till frozen, then in ziplock bag)


Oven Fried Okra (I make my version of this ALL the time! it’s fabulous. I don’t spray the bag like she does. I spray the pan with olive oil before cooking. And I usually use whole wheat flour instead of cornmeal. This recipe rocks. It takes longer than you think to cook, start it first if you are cooking a whole meal since you want the flour to soak up all the slime in the okra, and then you have to cook it after)

FREEZE Your Zucchini (use in zucchini cake, zucchini bread, casseroles, and more later)
