Hi everyone, Jess here with the third Spring, aka “Jumpstart” CSA of the 2020 Spring Season. What a lovely week it’s been! Before I start sharing some of the highlights from the 2nd share bag, let me show you what we’ll be working with this week in our 3rd pickup!
Lettuce – Have I mentioned lettuce wraps? Because these leaves make for great lettuce wraps.
Asparagus– Looking for some creative ideas for all this ‘Grass? Might I suggest this Asparagus Tart using puff pastry, brought to my attention a few seasons back by fellow Springdellian Dawn DeMeo. If you’re feeling super creative, this Asparagus and Potato “Cake” may be the prettiest thing I’ve ever made. Or, try my absolute favorite, this Creamy Spring Soup, which uses leftover asparagus steps for a delicious stock!
Spinach – The favorite veggie standby in this house, my boys only eat it plain and raw. Two Little Popeyes here…. Click the link for some other ideas. With the spring garlic it’d be a great time for Spinach Dip!
Spring Garlic is a whole different thing from the big-bulbed kind. These are the smaller garlic bulbs thinned out of the farmer’s row to make room for the hardiest bulbs to grow larger.
Let’s take a peek at some of our goodies from last week!
That’s about it for me for this weekly post. As always, please feel free to drop me a line with questions or comments. I always love to hear how you’re enjoying your veggies at home, or support you if you could use a little boost! Meanwhile, stay safe and healthy, and I’ll see you back here next week for the next installment of the Springdell Show and Tell.
