Whew, look at all that!

CSA produce share
Produce fresh from the farmers field. And what is that alien-looking plant we see?

Wow! Would you look at all that! We needed several bags to carry it all back to the car. When we got home, we laid it all out on the counter to inspect our bounty. We got:

  • Red La Soda Potatoes (6)
  • Escarole (1 giant head)
  • Hakurei Turnips (2 bunches — we traded cilantro for an extra bunch)
  • Mizuna (1 bunch)
  • Osaka Purple Mustard Greens (1 bunch)
  • Salad Mix (1 bag)
  • Romanesco Cauliflower (1 head) — that’s the veggie that looks like it came from outer space.

We can hardly wait to dig into some of this!

Update 18 February: We made a batch of greens latkes with the Mizuna, and a garbanzo-potato-green curry with the Osaka Purple Mustard greens. The Romanesco cauliflower went into a cheesy gratin to show off its cool look, and we’ve been working on the escarole (it was huge) by using it like one would use lettuce: sandwiches and salads.
