7/31/08 CSA SHARE: What I got

This is what was in my box (with a little help)

POTATOES……………………………………….. 2 quarts
Gave them to Mrs Murphy next door
CHIVES……………………………………………… 1 bunch
PURSLANE ………………………………………..1 bunch
LONG GREEN PEPPERS…………………… 2 pieces

BUNCHED CARROTS ……………………….1 bunch
TOMATO or CHERRY TOMATOES…. 1

I got a bag of yellow cherry tomatoes, and then I was lucky enough to cadge a regular tomato. Yippee! Tomato juice~
GREEN BEANS or SAVOY CABBAGE 1 bag or piece
I looked into a few boxes until I found one with cabbage.

FRUIT SHARE
PEACHES
APRICOTS

FRUIT STORAGE INFORMATION
As soon as you get home, immediately remove the tree fruit (peaches, apricots, etc.) from the plastic bag. They can ripen out on the counter, but must be placed in the fridge as soon as they turn ripe & soft. Berries should always be stored in the fridge.

Purslane is wild green, and by wild, I mean really wild! Can you believe that purslane contains more Omega-3 fatty acids (alpha-linolenic acid in particular) than any other leafy vegetable plant? Wild! Purslane has a lemony, salty flavor and can be eaten raw in salads or cooked like spinach.


I am probably going to try wilting the purslane to see if it comes out like sauteed. I have heard you can do that with leaves. We’ll see…. tomorrow’s the night I’ve chosen to try, since I will have time to put it in and check it after 1 hour and see what has happened…
