It seems like every year I start this series of posts and every year I peter out somewhere along the way. Ah, well, try try and try again, eh?
This week was our first pick up for our CSA. We have an abundance of strawberries because in addition to our usual Mini Shares, we also signed up for a Fruit Lover's Share. We have BIG plans for jams this year. ^_^
Most of these you probably recognize. The crazy bulb looking things (which I think look like the pigs from Angry Birds...) are kohlrabi which have a very neutral flavor and go well in salads, stir-fries and (according to our latest CSA newsletter) a hashbrown style dish.
We used carrots, broccoli, and onion that first night. We grilled them, together with some bell peppers and sausage and served them over jasmine rice. Nom.
We have the two larger boxes of strawberries cleaned and in the freezer in prep for making jam later. The smaller box we will eat as is. The Chinese cabbage, carrots, broccoli, kohlrabi, and green onions will make a tasty stir fry and we will probably prep several bags of "ready to go" stir fry veggies for stir fries later in the year. The beets are great on salads, and we may try pickling some. We may also try out those kohlrabi patties with omelets and do a "breakfast for dinner" meal. Radishes will go in the salads and...I dunno what else.
Any must try recipes with any of these?
