The CSA is coming to a close and with only one share left after this weekend, we’re savoring every bit of fresh produce we harvest. This week the bounty offers mizuna, radishes, carrots, baby pac choi, salad turnips, celeriac (celery root), and a New England Pie pumpkin.
Just in time for a Halloween treat… or if you like a nice pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving, these pumpkins should keep just find until then right on your counter.
The salad turnips and radishes will definitely make for nice salad toppings. Mizuna and baby pac choi are both lovely raw. While an abundance of greens is wonderful, it can also be overwhelming. If you’re looking for ways to use them up all at once, then check out this recipe for Saag Paneer – it really is an awesome dish that you can get creative with – it’s all about the greens, spices, tomato, and onion, but honestly we use coconut milk too and often blend it all at the end and add to rice, naan, bread, quinoa, or any grain will do.
Celeriac is a wonderful fall root – the top can be used like celery and the bottom should be used like any root veggie – roasted, in soups, sautéed…. check out this list of celeriac recipes that are pretty awesome.
Don’t forget next week is the last weekend of the CSA!
