The farmers provide a recipe in the Harvest Notes, and some suggestions for using or storing all the tomatoes. And don’t forget that next week is a Farmstand where you can buy pickles, jams, and other treats!
The farmers think we will receive broccoli, cherry tomatoes, cilantro, garlic, lettuce, peppers, squash, and tomatoes, and we might get beets, eggplant, and melons. Check last week’s post for suggestions on cooking beets, and remember that many times we link new recipe ideas to the names of items we’ve received often, so you can try them in a different way. Let us know if you have additional suggestions. And don’t forget that you can prepare items to store for the winter – zucchini can be pre-shredded and frozen in cupfuls or recipe-fuls for baking bread later (thaw in a colander so it drains, then add to your usual recipe), tomatoes can be simmered into sauce.
