I just recently got around to posting my CSA Fall Share photo of week #3, and here I am with Week #4's stuff. I feel like I a getting these vegetables faster than I can post about them! I am dumbfounded at the amount of produce growing here in Lancaster County at this time of year. We've already had a few days below freezing. These vegetables I get weekly are picked within 24 hours of being received at the pick-up location so we are talking fresh, fresh, fresh!
I'm excited about the yams this week. I love candied yams and this will actually be my first time making my famous recipe with fresh yams (not out the can). I know, shameful right? Hey, I'm a work in progress...I'm getting there! One learning step at a time. I also love the cauliflowers. You can't too well in the pics, but each head of cauliflower is only about the size of a softball. They're so cute! Never saw cauliflowers that small before. The carrots and brussel sprouts look scrumptious and I'm not quite sure what the purple and white long thingys are. You know what I do with root vegetables that I don't recognize? Chop them up and throw them in a soup or stir-fry. Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy. Whatevs. There is also a little bulb of celeriac which I've never seen in real life. I've only read about them in my vegetable gardening books so I'm pretty excited about that one. Overall, I'm quite psyched about my share this week....if only I can get around to eating last week's share!
