This weeks' share: 1 bunch of carrots, 2# gretel eggplant, 1# red onions, 1 fennel bulb, 1 pint of cherry tomatoes, 3# tomatoes, 1 japanese cucumber, 1 sweet italia pepper, 1 garlic bulb.
Storage: The tomatoes, eggplant, and pepper do not have to be refrigerated if you eat them within 2 days. All else, store in the refrigerator.
As we start to bring hot peppers to market, please feel free to take a few if you like them. We rarely put the hot peppers in the boxes because many people do not eat them.
The tomatoes in your box today are a few different varieties. The large pink ones are brandywines. The brick red to orangey brown ones are Paul Robeson and the larger reds are a hybrid named celebrity, the small red ones are new girl. All are great for fresh eating. They make great sandwiches, salsa, salad.
Roasted Fennel and Tomato Sauce
The eggplant is great cut in half lengthwise and roasted with olive oil and salt. You can scoop it out of the skin and eat it plain, make baba ghanoush dip, add it to pasta sauce.
