2014 week 2

Half shares had either broccoli rate or collard greens and hakurei turnips or radishes.
I am so excited to be offering this produce to you in this weeks share.

Broccoli Rabe is a bitter green, very similar to mustard greens.  I love broccoli rabe cooked with lots of garlic!  I recommend blanching the rabe in boiling water to take the edge off the bitterness first then sauteing with olive oil and garlic.  Here is a link to a recipe.

Collard Greens - your body will love you for eating these healthy greens.  Check out this recipe for collards.

Hakurei Turnips - They are delicious raw added to salads or slaws or just sprinkled with salt.  When cooked, they develop a buttery flavor and when roasted at high temperatures, their sweetness increases.
Don't get rid of the tops! Sauté with garlic in olive oil--tasty or add to your morning smoothy for a vitamin boost.

We are so, so thankful that we didn't receive any hail in last weeks storm.  And our thoughts are with our fellow farmers that saw great loss.   This farming business is crazy, risky, and at times just plain hard.
