What's in this week's Box
Grown on our farm using organic farming methods:
carrots, lettuces, beans, Delicata squash, potatoes, kale and celery.
The cucumbers come from Ocean Breeze Farms in Nipomo...pesticide free.
The apples are grown by Mike Cirone in See Canyon...pesticide free.
How about a nice fresh kale salad using the bunch of
Tuscano kale in your box this week. First, gently massage the leaves with your hands for a minute to make them a bit more tender. Then cut up the leaves into thin "ribbons" discarding the thicker portion of the stem. Mix in a bowl with some vinaigrette dressing and chopped nuts and fruits and finish with some Parmesan cheese sprinkled on top..delicious and good for you! Or how about some "kale chips"...wash and separate the leafy part from the stem ( discard the thicker stems ), cut up the leaves into smaller portions, add a little olive oil and seasonings, put on a roasting pan and roast in a hot oven until the leaves are crispy.
Delicata squash is delicious roasted in the oven. Cut the squash in half lengthwise, remove the seeds, then roast in the oven at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes until soft. The skin is thin and becomes edible when cooked. Another way to cook the Delicata is to make "squash rings". Cut into 1/2 inch wide rings, scoop out the seeds from the center, brush on some olive oil and sprinkle on a little seasonings, spread out on a cookie sheet single layer, roast in the oven until the rings become brown and crispy...the kids will think they are onion rings!
