CSA week 13

This is Kat, I'm new to White Barn Farm. You may be seeing me at the farm stand! Here is a list of what was included in this week's CSA box and some delicious recipes we recommend trying!

Your box either included a patty pan squash or Zucchini (here's a recipe for each). Since you have basil in your share this week, it's a perfect chance to try a zucchini and basil carbonara

Patty pan squash. This yellow squash might remind you of a UFO. It is a bright yellow round squash. Try this delicious stuffed patty pan squash recipe.

Two Italian Eggplants. One classic black eggplant and one specialty. If you're looking for something new to make with your eggplant try baba ganoush !

Summer squash. This is a great addition to any summer meal! Try experimenting with summer squash on veggie kabobs on the grill. I love pairing summer squash with red pepper and onion.

Slicing cucumber. If you're looking for a refreshing salad try this tomato, cucumber and avocado salad

Silver slicer. Similar in flavor to a green slicing cucumber, silver slicers pack in a little more of a crunch!

Golden beets. A little sweeter than their red beet relative these beets are great even thinly sliced and eaten raw. Try roasting them with a balsamic glaze.

Basil. A great addition to spice up any meal. Try this avocado caprese salad!

Lettuce. It has been a hot August week! For a great addition to any cookout or quick meal on a hot day throw some lettuce onto grilled burgers or make a delicious salad.

Pint of cippollini onions. (pronounced Chip-o-leeny). Cipolle is onion in Italian. Cipollini is a little onion. These flattened little disks are sharp when you're cutting them (wear your swim goggles), but the sweetest when you cook them. Try roasting quarters of these treasures. They would be great thrown in with some potatoes and carrots at the bottom of a pan of roasted meat (a whole chicken or a pot roast). I've heard of success wrapping them in a foil packet on the grill, too. 

5lb Tomato Box. A great addition to any summer dish!

Pint of cherry tomato. Perfect as salad toppers, diced into dishes, or grilled on skewers!
