DIGGING DEEPER

In our CSA share this week (last winter/spring pickup!)

In the pickup for our SE Portland and Lake Oswego/Luscher Farm shareholders this week:

This week we have more Baby Cauliflower – so delicious!! The very small head is wrapped in many tasty leaves. Make sure and use the leaves and stem as well as the head. Or cut the whole thing in half and grill or roast it.

Hope you have been enjoying all the Amish Butter Popcorn. We took the corn off the cob for you this week, but it still the same flavorful variety. Most folks already know how to cook popcorn, but I’ll share my favorite recipe anyway. This can also be ground into a wonderful polenta.

If you want to geek out on Raab, Rapini, Broccolini and learn the difference between all the different kinds of Cimi di Rapa then definitely check out this YouTube video from the Culinary Breeding Network. In your share you’ll enjoy the elongated stems and flower buds of kale & collards aka Brassica oleracea

Double the fun with two different kinds of microgreens:

  • Pea shoots are delicious raw or make a great substitute for sautéed snap peas in any dish where you want to have that nutty sweet pea flavor.
  • Radish microgreens are spicy, nutritious and delicious. Packed with even more vitamins & antioxidants than broccoli, these are terrific sprinkled on salad, sandwiches and anything else.
