August 15 CSA

This week's box has:  1 bunch leeks, 1 lb. sweet peppers, 2 lbs. heirloom paste tomatoes, 2 lbs. red and blue potatoes, 3/4 lb green beans, 1 lb. japanese eggplant, 1 pint cherry tomatoes.  Regular shares also get:  1 lb. yellow wax beans, 2 lbs. summer squash, 2 lbs. more paste tomatoes.

We thought we would just let you pick your own garlic and onions at market from the table.  You can get what you need each week and then store them as you wish.  The sweet and long red onions need to be kept in the refrigerator.  The round red and yellow onions as well as garlic and shallots do not need refrigeration.  They are best stored in dark, dry, cool location.

Jimmy Nardello sweet Italian Frying Peppers.
All the peppers in your box are sweet.  The long thin ones are an italian heirloom frying pepper, delicious in all applications.  The paste tomatoes are great for sauce and also delicious fresh in sandwiches , salsa, and salads.  The japanese eggplant have tender skin and do not need peeling.  They are excellent sauteed with onion and garlic and salt and pepper.  They're also good roasted and ground up and added to dips or veggie patties; delicious cut in half, marinated and grilled; delicious cut into coins and breaded and fried.
