CSA Delivery May 27, 2010

We are glad that the weather has finally mellowed out and the crops are looking normal again! I am looking forward to seeing everyone again this week. You'll get some new things this week, one of which is kohlrabi, which is related to cabbage. We peel the bulb and eat it raw, or you can chop it and put it over a salad. The tops can be cooked as you would any other green. Here is a link for a great recipe using mustard greens:

This week you can expect the following:

Half share:
  • one small bag of lettuce greens
  • one small bunch of mustard greens
  • one kohlrabi
  • one pint of local wildflower honey
  • 1/2 dozen local farm fresh eggs

Full share:

  • two medium bags of lettuce greens
  • one small bunch of mustard greens
  • one bunch of chard
  • two kohlrabi
  • two pints of local wildflower honey
  • 1 1/2 dozen local farm fresh eggs


  1. Thanks for the link to the mustard green recipe. It's a good recipe! We used about half of the garlic called for and it was plenty.

    We love your food!

  2. Just another idea for kohlrabi - I had never used it before in anything, but I shredded 4 (manually on a cheese grater), mixed that with grated potato and minced onion and a bit of grated carrot, 3 tbs flour and 2 eggs, and fried as croquettes. The recipe I had recommended boiling the vegs but I didn't do that, and just made the fritters thin. The food processor makes bigger grated pieces and maybe that would be needed. They were FABULOUS and I served them with an African habanero sauce that wasn't really necessary. Radishes and turnips and other root vegetables would surely work this way as well - very very good! We had them with barbecued chicken but they would be a good main course too. They don't hold well - important to eat before they get soggy for optimum experience.
