Oh my, this is the box of summer's bounty!
Watermelon - I'm thinking of trying to make a watermelon sorbet
Sweet Corn - This will get grilled up Saturday night for a bbq with friends
Green Peppers - I have no idea since I don't really like them. Ideas? I heard at the fair if you deep fry them they don't taste like peppers anymore.
Cucumbers - 4 giant ones & I still have one left from the last box. I'll do some refrigerator pickles.
Squash - One little squash that will either go in a stir-fry or pasta
Tomatoes - those two are salad bound
Radish Greens - Apparently these are really good sautéed up with some bacon, but then what isn't?
Italia Peppers - I ended up loving these in stir-fry last week so this week we'll try sausages & peppers
Raspberries - I think I'll do raspberry tarts
Japanese Eggplant - This will go in a stir-fry
Petite Green Beans - Some will get stir-fried but most just steamed
Tomatilla Salsa Kit - This contains tomatillas, a jalapeno, a small onion & cilantro. I love the fact the farm puts things like this together for us.
Zucchini - Maybe on a pizza this week.
Cipollini Onions - Matt wants some of these creamed like I did the leeks
Red Beets - To me these are best roasted with some garlic & olive oil.
I'll do a wrap up of what I did with boxes 8 & 9 together since I didn't have a week between the two like usual. The amount of vegetables here is really making me think that getting a box every other week is they way we should continue for two of us.
