Holy Basil Batman!

Peppers /  Hamm Farms

Peppers / Hamm Farms

An array of color continues to fill our baskets as the summer stretches into fall. You can expect to see Basil Bundles and Sungold Cherry Tomatoes from our friends at Belle Meadow Farms. Lollipop radishes will also make their way into your baskets which get their name from the way they look when sliced! They are crisp tasting and best served atop a heaping green salad.

We have scored more lovely Heirloom Tomatoes from Habersham Farms!
If you went simple last week- maybe try something a bit more complicated this week like a flavorful Puttanesca or a multi-colored Tomato Pie. Either way you cant lose with these beauties!

Jeweled peppers from Hamm farms are mild enough to be eaten raw with some hummus or go the classic sausage & peppers route like this recipe here. The mighty purple eggplant is nestled in there as well and we have plenty of ideas what to do with it. Perhaps you can slice thin and make into Eggplant Chips and serve with a Basil Yogurt Sauce or maybe lightly brush with pomegranate molasses like in this recipe Mahogany Eggplant with Pomegranate & Labneh. Vidalia Onions are in from Georgia and are begging to be made into a quiche or caramelized atop a juicy sirloin.

Did you see that we are lucky enough to get Hinkel’s coveted orange rolls? If you’ve walked around Pepperplace on a Saturday morning you see happy children with these EVERYWHERE! The secret to their goodness is real orange zest throughout the entire roll that provides balance so it isn’t overtly sweet.

From Stone Hollow we wanted to change up the preserves with something you might not have heard of before- Calamondin Preserves! It is a slightly unusual citrus tree that is a cross between kumquats and mandarin oranges. This gives the calamondin fruit a slightly sour taste, but the skins a surprisingly sweet one. Perfect for spreading on a buttery toasted sourdough or atop a seared chicken breast. We also included some White Chive Blossom Marinated Goat Cheese which has a slight garlicky flavor- smear it on a baguette for a perfect afternoon goûter. Enjoy the okra we placed in your baskets as well- it’ll be gone before you know it!

Don’t forget to enjoy the sunshine as the days continue to get shorter and our routines become more set in stone. Test that new recipe you’ve had bookmarked, but have been too nervous to try out!

As always, thank you for being apart of CSA.
