the start of the fall csa

my first fall csa share!I’ve wanted to be part of a csa for four or so years, but time and budgetary constraints always made it a less than ideal option for us. When we heard that a local farm was offering shares for the fall, we signed right up.

While I’m highly attuned to the seasonality of fruits, my vegetable knowledge is a little lacking– so I’m super pumped about learning what produce is available when in our city. I also love the challenge of coming up with ways to use everything in our share. So far, I’m thinking I’ll make:

Kale chips
Spicy pickled okra
– Minestrone
– Fennel bulb rosemary chicken
Mulberry galette

I’m still trying to figure out how I’ll use the amaranth greens I got, since they’re new to me. My love of Indian cuisine means powdered turmeric is a staple in my kitchen, so it’ll be interesting to see how the fresh root compares. I can’t wait to get cooking!
