I got an extra large delivery this week of my regular CSA box, an extra fruit box, and some ground beef. I was expecting brocolli and cauliflower but instead I received tomatoes and extra lettuce and peppers. All part of the adventure. The mushroooms will be sauteed for tonight since they won’t keep well. I plan to make pear-applesauce over the weekend and I think the kiwis are going to be freezer jam. The green beans will be blanched and frozen. The yams will be boiled and mashed and appear in Molasses Yam Cookies. I think the turnips will be stir-fried with carrots. They sent me an abundance of shallots so I’ll have to do some planning there. The bananas that aren’t eaten will turn into banana bread as soon as they ripen up a bit. The ground beef and cherry tomatoes will become chili. I want to try making cauliflower-pepper soup so I may just go get myself a cauliflower. Hmmmmmm. They sent me Russet potatoes, which are great for making soups. This is the fun and adventure of CSA cooking!

    Wow, where do you live that you get kiwi, bananas and pears all within 100 miles?

    I don’t! I live in upstate NY. I’m just starting on this adventure. I don’t expect to get 100% of my food from within 100 miles but I’m aiming to get as much as I can.
