…Come Grow With Us!

CSA Week 7

Cropping up …

Beets and greens, green onions, kale, lettuces, sugar snap peas, Swiss chard, and turnips are in full swing and will continue to fill our baskets in coming weeks. New produce includes carrots and garlic scapes.

Carrots

Remove tops, since the greens will pull moisture from the roots. Store in the refrigerator, tightly sealed with a dry cloth or paper towel in the container.

 

 

Garlic Scapes

Garlic scapes are the bud and stem of the flower of the garlic plant. Scapes have the same flavor as garlic and can be substituted for garlic cloves in recipes. Due to their more fibrous texture, they may require longer cooking, puréeing, etc., when substituted.

Store garlic scapes in refrigerator sealed in a bag with a damp cloth or paper towel. Alternatively, for longer storage, place in a glass with stems in water and a plastic bag or dampened cloth bag over the tops (like asparagus or green onions).
