CORN: Eat your fresh corn as soon as possible, natural sugars begin to break down soon after harvesting. Corn can keep for a few days refrigerated with the husks on. Corn-on-the-cob is the favorite way to enjoy fresh picked corn. To cook, steam in 2 inches of water for 6-10 min. or drop into boiling water and cook for 4-7 min.
Older or over-mature corn is great added to corn bread, soups, stews, chili, casseroles, stir-fires, quiches, salads, & bean dishes.
It is not uncommon to find a worm in your organically grown corn. Simply cut away the bad section and cook the rest – it’s perfectly fine to eat!
PEPPERS: Peppers stay fresh in the crisper drawer of your refrigerator for 1-2 weeks. For the highest nutrition, eat peppers raw. Slice or dice them for pasta or green salads, thinly slice them for sandwiches, or cut lengthwise for dipping. Add peppers to omelets, stir-fries, quiches, sauces, curries and stews. Peppers taste great in Italian, Indian, Mexican, or Thai food as well as in many other ethnic dishes. Roasted peppers are especially tasty. Place peppers under the broiler until the skins have evenly blackened. Place the peppers in a brown bag, fold and allow the peppers to steam for 10-15 minutes. When cool, peel off the skins and add to your recipe.
Photos from the Field…
Sadly this week I was unable to get out to the farm to take photos because of a sick baby girl, so I called upon the crew and their trusty smart phones to take some photos of life in the field! Thank you to Andréa and Jeremy for sending in some beautiful photos to share with you. Jeremy shared the bountiful corn harvest…
Andréa shared a beautiful photo of the misty morning over the peppers
and Kevin harvesting them…
I hope that you are all enjoying the delicious food in your boxes each week, I know that my family has eaten many a meal where all the dishes are vegetables from the farm! Corn on the cob, stir-fries, vegetable frittatas, fresh tomato sauce and crisp carrot sticks for snacks! If you have a favorite summer recipe, I will be happy to share it with your CSA community!
Take care and enjoy your share of the harvest!
