2017. Week 10
Cantaloupe- So happy for the arrival of cantaloupe! That first taste is the best. Check out this recipe for Grilled Cantaloupe
Green Bell Pepper- I think I see some stir fried peppers and onions in my future!
Red Onion - A nice mild onion perfect for salsas and salads.
Jalapeño - watch out for this spicy guy, but he will really kick your fresh salsa up a notch.
Cilantro- use for fresh salsa or guacamole! Store in refrigerator with cut ends in a jar of water and leaves loosely covered with a plastic bag for several days.
Garlic- Our own hard neck garlic. Hardneck garlic is different from the usual softneck garlic found in grocery stores. Prized by chefs for its nuanced flavors, hardneck varieties have shorter shelf life (6-10 months). Hardneck garlic develops a woody shoot, or scape, which must be removed to improve bulb development. These same garlic bulbs produced the scapes that were in your csa share a few weeks ago.
