News from the farm

Ok, so this is the last week of peppers!  (I promise.) We've had a bumper crop of peppers this season and as is typical in CSA, you've received the bounty of the harvest over the past couple months.  Luckily peppers are easy to roast and freeze for use in recipes over the winter!  Check out the instructions under the Recipe section in this newsletter.

The cauliflower is a real treat this week!  This crop is not especially easy to grow and we haven't had it for several seasons, so enjoy!  I whipped up a delicious cauliflower and potato soup last week.  Here's the simple recipe:  In a heavy bottomed soup pot, saute a chopped onion and 1 clove of minced garlic in some olive oil.  Add a head of cauliflower (roughly cut into 1" chunks), 2-3 small potatoes and 1 carrot (all peeled and cut into 1/2" chunks) and saute for a few minutes.  Add water to just cover the veg, put a top on the pot and boil, then simmer until the potatoes, carrots and cauliflower are tender.  Use an immersion blender to puree smooth and season to taste with salt and pepper.  Bon appetit!
