CSA Share for 2012 Week Eight

the beach of Tropea

Aren’t those Tropea onions beautiful?  See my post from last year for info on and ideas for these onions, and check out wikipedia for more images.   In our share this week:

  • lettuce
  • swiss chard
  • Tropea onions
  • cucumbers
  • beets
  • corn
  • garlic
  • basil
  • sweet corn

Farmer Anne mentioned in our newsletter that, despite all the recipes you can find online, she still likes looking through cookbooks; I certainly am with her on that one.  And I also agree with her that the Moosewood Restaurant cookbooks are fantastic.  Currently, Moosewood has published 12 cookbooks and have another one coming out soon.  I’m sure you can find some of them at your library, or you can buy them right from the Moosewood website.  One of my favorites is Moosewood Restaurant Cooking for Health, which has a fantastic Oatmeal Cookies recipe.

But until you track down some great cookbooks, these recipes featuring Tropea onions should hold you over:

Happy cooking, and happy eating!
