CSA Week 2

Things sure are growing on the farm! All of the crops are thriving in this cloudy-sunny-cloudy-sprinkle-sunny sort of weather. Oregon spring, essentially. We hope you all enjoyed your first CSA box of the season. Here we go for round two! We will be posting here the day before we deliver boxes so that you can have a heads up about what will be in your box. Enjoy!

In the box this week:

  • Fingerling potatoes (first of the season, and freshly dug)
  • Salad mix
  • Strawberries
  • Golden beets
  • Fennel
  • Salad Turnips (can be eaten raw or roasted)

Recipe Ideas:

  • A yummy salad with thinly sliced strawberries and shaved turnips, maybe with some sunflower seeds and balsamic dressing. 

  • Roasted Root Vegetables: 
    • 1 1/2 pounds potatoes, unpeeled, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
    • 1 bunch beets (about 1 1/2 pounds), trimmed but not peeled, scrubbed, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
    • Chopped Fennel
    • 1 medium-size onion, cut into 1/2-inch pieces (about 2 cups) 
    • 1 large turnip, peeled, cut into 1/2-inch pieces (about 1 cup) (carrots instead?)
    • 1 head of garlic, cloves separated, peeled
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • Preheat oven to 425°F. Oil 2 large rimmed baking sheets. Combine all ingredients in very large bowl; toss to coat. Divide vegetables between prepared baking sheets; spread evenly. Sprinkle generously with salt and pepper. Roast vegetables until tender and golden brown, stirring occasionally, about 1 hour 15 minutes. (Can be prepared 2 hours ahead. Let stand at room temperature. Rewarm in 350°F oven 15 minutes.)
