This week, Paul and Danielle are out of town, so I got the whole share. I picked out potatoes, radishes, chard and kale. The kale will get blanched and frozen for use when the cold weather sets in — I’ve got a couple of recipes that sound good. The chard I’ll eat this weekend, with some black gold cherry tomatoes from another farm, and possibly also the cranberry beans I grabbed. The potatoes, who knows but they’ll wind up in something. I have no idea what I’ll do with the radishes. I picked them mostly because this summer, I kept reading about “delicious, peppery radishes,” but they’ve never tasted like anything much to me. I figure if that’s still the case with radishes straight from the farmer, then I can officially continue to ignore them.
In addition to all that, I grabbed onions and garlic, some Ginger Gold apples for baking and some Jonamacs (I think) for lunches. Plus a bag of coffee from Zeke’s, where the guy was very helpful and friendly. I get overwhelmed by all the different regional varieties, and mentioned I was looking for something to serve with brunch. He suggested their Montebello Reserve blend, which I am enjoying now.
