Veggie CSA: Week 9

Week 9. 


This week we received:
1 pound onions,4 corn, 2 pounds peaches, 2 pounds new potatoes, 3 peppers, 1 bunch carrots, 2 pounds tomatoes, 1 bunch red chard

The plan: 
Freeze: Chard and carrots
Corn - immediately boil for 3 minutes. Keep in the fridge until ready to eat. 
Peaches - just eat
Onions, potatoes, tomatoes - need a plan. We actually have a backlog of potatoes, think I need to make lots of hash brown this weekend.
Peppers - try to pawn these off on anyone I can

What do others have planned?

    1. Oh, great idea! Did you do anything to the peppers before you froze them?

    2. Just the usual. Cut into strips and blanch for 3 mins!

  2. This is a great post. Love the corn suggestion, that is definitely the blandest of commercially frozen veggies when it should be the greatest! I also appreciate that these are all very accessible foods. No kohlrabi for me to plan a meal around, just items I can throw in to jazz up almost any dish I would be making. Thanks!

  3. I made stuffed peppers w/ turkey, mushrooms, tri-blend wild rice, and farm share tomatoes, onions, and peppers, of course!

    Used a bit of advice from Cooks Illustrated to avoid mushy peppers, which my hubby appreciated!

    Also, topped with a chedder/gruyere cheese from Trader Joe's

    YUM! Having leftovers for lunch today :)
