What we did with CSA box #3 and what's in #4

I've joined Cooking Away My CSA this year which is a group of people around the country sharing how they use their CSA boxes.

What we did with CSA box #3
1. Broccoli Sesame Salad 2. Parsnips Muffins (recipe to come) 3. Baby Turnip Slaw 4. Grilled Asparagus 5. Pickled Spring Onions 6. Seared Salmon with Creamy Green & Roasted Pepper Sauce 7. Strawberry Rhubarb and Gingered Honey Rhubarb Jams 8. Spinach, Bacon and Onion Tacos 9. The box

What's in box 4...
What's in CSA box #4
Strawberries - These are always the best & sweetest strawberries of the year. I'm thinking of using then in ice cream or just on top of shortcake.

Red Radish - These make a great sandwich. I also heard they are good in frittatas instead on potato so I may try that this week.

Spinach - With so many greens in this box I may just blanch this bag & freeze it for later use.

Salad Mix 

Greenleaf Lettuce - I want to make lettuce wraps with this over the weekend

Kohlrabi - Matt loves the root julienned & used in slaw.

Napa Cabbage - Stir fry perhaps, maybe cut some up to use in steamed bun filling.

Garlic Scapes - We used half of this as a grilled pizza topping last night. We've also used it to replace garlic in other recipes. I think the rest will become pesto.

Scallions - All of these have already been used on pizza.

Broccoli - This was a pretty small amount of broccoli. We steamed the florets & put them on pizza.

(In case you are wondering our CSA is Harmony Valley Farm.)

That's a really nice box of fruit and veg and what you chose to make with it all sounds great!

Just discovering your blog!

You really shouldn't waste these strawberries in an ice cream. To use berries in frozen deserts you have to sugar them and let them release their juices to flavor the dairy components so any old berries will do.

Fresh and topped with ice cream would be a fine use, though.

And do try the radish frittata. Get the radishes soft and a bit crispy around the edged before adding them to the eggs.
