CSA Share for 2010 Week Six

We got our first bunch of basil this week….hurray!  Collard greens is another new addition this week.  Here’s what else was in my share:

  • beets
  • zucchini
  • cucumbers
  • kale
  • collards
  • basil
  • pick your own herbs

I actually got to all my freezing and prepping tonight.  Whew, what a workout!  I blanched and froze all the greens (beet greens, kale, and collards).  I made up a batch of basil pesto as well.  THIS is the kind of pesto my family is waiting for!  The recipe is the same as my previous post for arugula pesto, but of course just replace the arugula bunch with a basil bunch.  I also got some extra zucchini from our farm’s Extras basket, so I just chopped them up into chunks and froze them.  They will go into the food processor mid-winter and then into a vegetable soup.   How is everyone keeping up with all the veggies?
