csa share :: week 9 + a late night tomato date.....

 

This week's share from the farm::

4 pints of cherry tomatoes

7 pounds of mixed tomatoes

2 heads of Lettuce

1 bag of Onions

1 bag of Beets

Swiss Chard

Savoy

Cucumbers

Zucchini & Summer Squash

Basil

Dill

Bell Peppers

Hot Peppers

Eggplant

 

Plus I picked up an extra 35 pounds of tomatoes to put up. I spent all day making this sauce yesterday. The last batch was finished up at 10:30. I doubled the garlic and added fresh basil from our share for the italian one. 35 pounds of tomatoes makes 9 quarts of sauce….. and it is out of this world awesome goodness. I did five marinara and four with just garlic. I imagine the plain one will make some seriously good tomato soup with a bit of veggie broth added to it. I filled wide mouth jars with a one inch head space and chilled them overnight. All of them went into the freezer this morning. As long as I follow these steps, I haven't had a jar break.

More good food stuff::

Zucchini Fritters, every week. I always make a triple batch so we can eat them cold for lunch the next day. Luke says "it's like a good vegetable pancake."

Erin made this. I want to eat at her house for dinner.

My big kid has been in Alaska with his grandparents for the past few months. When he comes home I am making him one of his favorites, Moussaka. I love how the chef in this post is honest about this being an insanely involved dish. Not a typical thing around here, but good for a little celebration.

Also, Ratatouille & Pickled Pink Eggplant & Beet Hummus.

 

What are you cooking up from the farm or garden? Do share….

  2. The fritters ares so delicious. A summer staple here. I serve a summer salad (tomato halves, lightly steamed green beans and boiled new potatoes) alongside it. Summer food at its finest 🙂
