farmhouse produce

January 26, 2011

Here’s what I got in my Farmhouse Delivery bushel this week: oranges, collard greens, cauliflower, green onions, lettuce, bok choy, turnips,avocados, radishes and sweet potatoes. I still have some cauliflower from last week, and green onions, too. I need to figure out what to cook with all this stuff. Probably a stir fry, and soup, and salad. Maybe caldo gallego?

Also, I finally went back through all my recipe posts and fixed the ingredient lists. For some reason, when we upgraded the blog template, everything that was in list format suddenly de-formatted and reverted to paragraph form. It was quite frustrating, but I went through every recipe and made the ingredients into a bulleted list. It was kind of fun to go back through those old posts, though… I was so different six years ago! I’ve been thinking a lot about how much I’ve changed, and whether it has been for the better. But that’s a whole other blog post, I think.

Our friend Michelle made a quick video of the surprise zombie party, which you can see here. I’m so glad someone got Bud’s reaction on video – he was totally freaked out!

    We keep thinking about signing up for this. Locally they have limited spot so we missed the boat on produce last season.

      Yep, we just got in for the end of the winter season. Last year we canceled our membership before all the great summer produce because we were restaurant-eating so much, but this year I want to stick with it!

    Doing a gratin would be nice. Collard greens could maaaaaybe be made into chips, lettuce would be a salad, which go nicely with avocados. Sweet potatoes, cauliflower, and green onions (???) are all useful in a gratin – if the onions are really nice you could caramelise them and make onion jam. As for oranges, I’d just eat them raw. And turnips are yummy cooked until soft in a clear broth. :D

      In a clear broth, with some dashi and seaweed. Or sliced up into thick rounds, then sliced length-wise, then put in some miso and you have miso turnip soup!

      Oh and radishes: I’ve never really eaten radish (the small red ones) so I don’t know. You could always throw them in the salad? Hehe. Sorry for the spam.

        You know, a cauliflower gratin sounds perfect. I think I saw a recipe for one on Chocolate & Zucchini a while back… Also, turnips in miso! Never thought of that. :)

    What a beautiful bushel! As for an abundance of cauliflower, you might check this blog already – but my mother made this recently and I thought it was very good, and such a unique recipe.
