HERE IS WHAT WE GOT AND WHAT I TOOK:
Baby Beets- 1 bun
Swiss Chard- 1 bun
Boston Lettuce- 2 heads(green or red) Red Peppers
Tomatoes- mixed variety
Arugula- 1/2 lb. bag
Toscano Kale – 1 bun
Long Red Peppers -3 pcs
The first major question I heard from other CSAers was “what happened to the beet greens”? Someone figured there was a CSA out there somewhere which had only beet greens and no beets!
With the Swiss Chard, it was me doing the “I will/I won’t” dance. In the end, I did come home with a bunch of chard – just not the bunch I had put in the trade box. What will I do with it? I am not real sure just yet, but I am thinking wraps with the leaf halves and a ferment with the stems.
Beets? I just haven’t decided yet. Thank heavens beets will stay in the refrigerator for a while, giving you time to think things over.
I ended up bringing home some arugula – I tried it on a sandwich but it was most unpleasant for me. I tried it in a marinated greens recipe, but it was grim. Dehydrate it and grind it and add it to my super-greens jar? Sounds like a plan.
At least half of the (sweet) red peppers I came home with will go into a hot ajvar. I know it. I have been radically protecting my Monday night event with New York Ferments, and I’m taking the ajvar with me. This won’t be a traditional ajvar (you cannot keep me away from garlic – it will be in there, I will likely substitute chili powder for the red pepper needed, and I will probably feel the need to put some onion in it)
The kale? Ah! The kale! Kale cheeze and, probably kale chips! I do love kale!

NOUVEAU RAW’S KALE CHIPS
I’m a sucker for kale chips. I mostly just make the same ones over and over again, but here and there, I try new ideas to see if there might be another “same one” to add to my repertoire.
Enter Nouveau Raw’s Kale Chips bank of recipes. I say bank because there at least a dozen different recipes, for whatever kind of taste you fancy. You’ll find Mexican, Thai, Jamaican, chocolate (yes!), and more traditional-sounding vinegar-dill, sour cream and onion, and barbecue flavor ideas. The ones I’ve tried have all been good.
