Week 10

In this week’s basket:

  • beans
  • baby spinach
  • kale/Swiss chard
  • apples
  • potatoes
  • carrots
  • onions
  • mint
  • a zucchini (we are excited that the zucchinis have finally started producing after a slow start and are hoping to have more very soon)

Ideas:

  • make an eggy stir-fry- caramelize onions for a few minutes before adding grated carrots to your pan (fry until the potatoes start to crisp up a bit); add zucchini, kale or Swiss chard, and a few chopped beans a minute or two before adding eggs, spinach – Mike has been making this for me quite a bit lately and I love it

  • carrots

Week 8

In this week’s basket:

  • apples from our tiny orchard
  • beans
  • carrots
  • potatoes
  • kale
  • onions
  • basil
  • thyme
  • parsley

The apples are a softer summer apple that are good for eating raw or in applesauce and apple crisp. They are organic so they are sometimes ugly, but they taste good. đŸ™‚

Lazy Apple Crisp

In a bowl, combine equal parts oats, flour, and brown sugar. Mix in butter or coconut oil with your hands until desired consistency (I like it to stick together well enough that I can eat pieces of it while mixing). Spread mixture on top of apples (these apples shrink a lot) and bake at 350 until the top is golden brown and the kitchen smells like apple crisp. Enjoy!
