This week 1/2 CSA’s received kale, endive, carrots, salad mix, basil, zucchini, garlic, sweet corn, snap beans, and blueberries. Full CSA’s also received yellow summer squash, swiss chard, and raspberries.
Sweet Corn is delicious cooked a number of ways! Two easy ways are to husk it and boil in hot water for about 10 minutes or to soak it in the husk in water for a few hours and then put it on the grill for about 15 minutes, turning a few times. It is flavorful just like it is but delicious with butter and salt. If you have extra ears of corn cut the kernels from the cob and save in fridge or freezer to use in another recipe.
Here is a yummy soup recipe to use some of your kale. It is for a Creamy Kale and Sausage Soup. https://www.pinterest.com/pin/486036984785365681/
We grow green, yellow, and purple beans on the farm. They are delicious as a single variety or all together. Here are a few recipes to try!
