Let’s fire up the oven!

Last week I included some tomatillos in some of the baskets. This very distant tomato relative is a staple in Mexican cooking, it puts the verde in salsa verde. At the farm we use it fresh chopped with cucumbers and onion in this recipe:

Or in enchiladas verdes

They’re good at all stages of development and keep very well. The greener ones have a more tart flavor and the riper yellowish ones tend to be a little sweeter. I usually use a mix of green and yellow for a balanced flavor, but they are fun to experiment with so use whichever you like!

I also got this link from a customer, a perfect happy soup for a chilly day!

I made myself a jar of refrigerator pickles this week. They’re super simple to make and don’t require any special equipment. I used the recipe here:  http://www.annies-eats.com/2013/08/05/refrigerator-dill-pickles/ and they are awesome!

With the shallots coming in, I’m planning on making my favorite mushroom soup, it’s so good! Recipe here: http://crazydaisycsa.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/12/Garlic-mushroom-soup1.pdf

 

 

And for dessert, with so many left over zucchini it’s time to make some zucchini crisp! http://crazydaisycsa.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/12/Zucchini-Crisp.pdf  It seriously tastes like apples, yummy!

It’s that time of year again and we are swimming in zucchini. So it’s time to start putting it away for colder times.

 

 

This super high rated zucchini bread recipe makes 2 loaves, one to eat and one to freeze!

Or if you do a lot of cooking in the winter you can try freezing blanched zucchini. There’s a great tutorial here:

We featured an awesome zucchini boat recipe in this weeks newsletter but there are a ton of other cool recipes to try. I’m especially fond of this one:

http://www.skinnytaste.com/2013/07/taco-stuffed-zucchini-boats.html

 

All of the zucchini boat recipes I’ve found use traditional green zucchini, but they’re all just as good with yellow, or use some of the larger patty pan for an adorable single serving!

Due to the extremely cool nights all through August, the tomatoes are later than usual. So this week we’re featuring a cucumber and zucchini salsa recipe that is super easy and so yummy!

I made a few changes, with white onion instead of red, and a splash of lemon juice. Don’t forget to wear gloves when you handle the jalapenos!

So fresh, so good! The recipe can be found in our August 16th & 20th newsletters.

Summer vegetable soup is on the menu this week! It’s one of my absolute favorites, just throw whatever you have in a pot, add broth, salt and pepper, and it’s SO good!

It’s great for freezing and reheating in the winter when you’re craving fresh vegetables. Plus it’s super low in calories and if you add greens it’s incredibly nutritious. You can find my recipe in the August 9th and August 13th newsletters. But you sure don’t have to stick to the recipe,add whatever you like!
