Welcome to CSA Week 5!

In the box:

  1. Cauliflower (white, purple, or romanesco)
  2. Red Torpedo onions
  3. Pickling cucumbers
  4. Cilantro
  5. Lettuce
  6. Summer squash
  7. Garlic
  8. Marionberries or blackberries
Produce tidbits:
– The garlic has still not been cured yet. You will want to remove what will become the papery wrapper before using. We’re harvesting and curing about 1000 pounds next week!
– Purple cauliflower tastes just the same as white, but it will lose some color when cooked. If you get Romanesco: it has a cool fractal pattern and tastes like a mix between cauliflower and broccoli.
– Red torpedo onions: When pulled as baby onions, just as the stems start to swell, their beautiful, bright, magenta color, mild flavor, and crunchy texture work well in salads. When they bulb up, they have an elongated torpedo shape and develop a deep pungent flavor.
