Pickup Reminder CSA TODAY THURSDAY Dec 17th BOXES Thank YOU!

Posted 12/17/2015 6:30am by Jill Rendleman.

CSA Pickup is today!  Next week pickup is on TUESDAY DEC 22 and will include a big lot of fresh spinach and another green for your holiday health.  Thanks for remembering boxes.  Faylin will be at the Co-op pickup today and is excited to meet members.  Today members can expect crisp head lettuce, kohlrabi, kale, pac choi, and fresh thyme in your share.  What is kohlrabi?  This is a crunchy no leaf cousin of cabbage and is wonderful fresh cut up or grated into salads or shredded for cole slaw or cooked....cut in half, drench in olive oil and roast at 450 oven turned down to 350 after you put it in.  Here is what Cook's Illustrated says about kohlrabi....

Kohlrabi, which can be either purple or green, is a member of the brassica family, which also includes broccoli, turnips, and cabbage. Its leaves are tender when young and can be added to salads for a peppery bite. More mature leaves and their fibrous stems can be cut into small pieces and cooked in the same manner as collards or kale and offer a similar minerally flavor. After removing the skin and the tough fibrous layer underneath it with a vegetable peeler, tasters found that the raw flesh had a crisp texture and peppery flavor similar to that of turnip but milder and with a sweetness like that of jícama or even apple. It’s a good appetizer sliced thin and sprinkled with salt and lime or lemon juice and makes a nice addition to salads. It also shows up in all sorts of cooked applications, from stir-fries to sautés to soups. We’ve found, however, that overcooked, it becomes flavorless. This makes it best-suited for quick-cooking dishes like stir-fries; if you want to use it in soups and stews, wait and add it toward the end of cooking.
