CSA Pickup Reminder THURSDAY April 26 and FRIDAY April 27 RETURN BOXES PLEASE

Posted 4/25/2018 5:57pm by Jill Rendleman.

Members will enjoy fresh mixes greens with edible flowers, spinach, romaine lettuce, and new dill.  What to do with greens?  we like them best braised, that is sautéed in a little hotter skillet for a shorter time, in olive oil and with a little minced garlic added about one minute before eating.  yes the flowers are edible.....in New York we could sell them by the ounce!  or prepare the greens as a salad with a lite dressing of olive oil, lemon juice, rice vinegar, and a dash of mustard.  These greens are densely nutritious and include tatsoi, mustard, endive, mizuna, and other asian greens.  Romaine that is not contaminated is at a premium now  so enjoy organic local non gmo never sprayed with anything romaine, pure and simple.  Our romaines are a smaller variety that are easily prepared for a salad with 5 to 6 inch leaf, versus 12-16 inch leaf.  Spinach is something you can incorporate into a green salad, or you could consider cooking in olive oil with a little salt and garlic.  Great with eggs or rice.  Dill----by now you know that I see herbs as a potential meal or primary meal enhancer.  I love dill mixed with sour cream and/or philly cream and topped on any meat or vegan dish, but especially good on fish.....ie salmon.   If you find in your CSA you have too much of an herb, leave it on a plate to dry in the kitchen and use it later or freeze it after it has dried.  Remember that herbs have kept major civilizations alive for centuries when no other food was available.  While we think of them as seasonings, we should really think of them as those things along with interesting taste, add nutrition, add probiotics, add new dimensions to the flora and fauna in your bodies immune system.   

Thats way too long but i will post in nonetheless.  Good eating, creativity, and good health to you.  your farmer, Jill
