Our most recent (6/17) CSA pickup yielded scallions, kohlrabi, a head of lettuce, all the garlic scapes I could manage (no limit!), Swiss chard, eggs, turnips and radishes.
We spontaneously opted to pick up the chard on Friday night when we remembered that we could make white bean-chard soup. Soup in June? If it’s rainy and cold and you’d been running around all afternoon, absolutely. It really hit the spot, actually.
As usual, we’ve been downing a lot of salads, a few egg sandwiches and some roasted turnips and kohlrabi. In case you missed it, I also used our CSA share to create several chicken meals.
Where did all the scapes go? 4 batches of garlic scape pesto (3/4 of which went into the freezer), and white bean and garlic scape dip which I highly highly recommend and can hardly wait to devour.
I’m heading to the Farmer’s Market for the first time today, glad to see a) what might be in store for me, and b) what I can do with it.
