September 28th Produce

Here are the items you can expect at Market {M} and in the CSA {CSA}:

  • Daikon Radish & Greens {M/CSA}: did you realize daikon radishes are a good source of Vitamin C? Just one cup (sliced) provides about 30% of your RDA of this very important vitamin.
  • Green Bell, Jalapenos & Habaneros {M/CSA}: why purchase hot sauce when you can make your own! Check out this post on making Aged, Fermented Hot Pepper Sauce and pick up some of our peppers now to get started! The holidays are only a few months away – wouldn’t homemade hot sauce make an awesome gift for your spice-loving friends?!
  • Basil, Lemon Balm, Parsley & Rosemary {M/CSA}: the MSFM blog has a great article on preserving fresh herbs. Heather talks specifically about freezing herbs as-is and also turning them into pesto and then freezing the sauce.
  • Pak Choi {CSA}: kimchi, the spicy Korean condiment, is traditionally made with cabbage but here, bok choy (or pak choi) is the main component. If you like spicy food, this is definitely a recipe to try.
  • Giant Red Mustard Greens {CSA}: With a hint of fall in the air (finally!), soup season is here. Give our Mustard Greens Soup with Almonds and Poblanos recipe a try. If you want to kick it up a notch, substitute the milder poblanos for jalapenos or habaneros we have available this week.
  • Collards, Red Russian Kale & Toscano Kale {CSA}: We just posted a new recipe – Green Coconut Soup Base. In it, I call for Summerfest Asian greens but you can definitely use kale or collards in it’s place. This is also a great way to use the garlic and hot peppers!
  • Garlic {CSA}: put this recipe in your back pocket for when cold and flu season hits: Immunity Soup. It includes lots of garlic and pepper and can be garnished with whatever is in season (sliced salad turnips and wilted greens sound like a great addition!).
  • Japanese Salad Turnips & Greens {M}: if you aren’t sure how to use your greens, check out our Yogurt & Greens Dip recipe. It’s an easy and delicious way to make sure they don’t go to waste.
