What's in my CSA Box? Ideas for eating and cooking.

Posted 1/3/2014 10:16am by Jill Rendleman.

Fresh spinach and baby lettuce greens fill your box this week.  A good way to clean out toxins from the holidays!  Also you will find leafy baby celery, great for soups, roasts, stews.....very intense flavor, not grown in water like supermarket celery.  Also, a little more pac choi for your stir fry or smoothies....also adds a very nice crunch to salads.  Box is topped off with sprigs of fresh dill.....great in potato dishes, soups, fish and chicken, really just about any dish can be improved with dill.   Since we are approaching lettuce season, you may want to consider buying the lettuce cloth bags at the  Co-op....these keep freshly washed greens and lettuces from getting slimey from sitting in a plastic bag.....also great for almost any other vegetable.  A good investment all around.  Enjoy!
