CSA Share for 2013 Week Six

What a pickup week it is…those were heavy bags!  In our share this week:

  • lettuce
  • mizuna
  • garlic
  • swiss chard
  • beets
  • summer squash
  • sweet corn
  • lots of extras

If you happened to grab some Chinese cabbage from the extras, this Inside-Out Dumplings recipe is fantastic.  It calls for bok choi, but I think substituting Chinese cabbage would work very well.

Every year it seems every gardener gets an abundance of zucchini and summer squash.  I just wash and dice them up, put them in the blender (I have a Magic Bullet type blender), add just enough water so the mixture will blend, and then pour 2-cup batches into ziploc baggies.  I then freeze these and take them out one at a time for making Zucchini Brownies (recipe from a 2007 farm newsletter).  I’ve been making these ever since I read that “vintage” newsletter, and they are GOOD.  Since it’s so easy to blend and freeze the zucchini and summer squash, it’s a great way to use them all up, and those baggies will last all winter long.
