Here is what I received today from Eaton’s Creek Organics, and I am quite pleased.
Included in the basket above are the following:
- 1 bunch kale
- 1 head lettuce
- 1 bag of spinach
- 1 bunch escarole
- 1 bunch (4) beets with leaves
- 1 bunch radishes
- 2 large green onions
- 1 bunch of mint
- 1 quart strawberries (with a bonus quart)
How will I use all of this bounty? The lettuce, escarole, and radishes are salad bound for sure; the spinach and green onions may be a part of the salad mix, too. Strawberries are “melt in your mouth” good, so they will be washed, topped, and sliced. We’ll eat what we can today and tomorrow, and the rest will be frozen for later use.
I have several recipes for using kale, so I’m not sure in which one this bunch will be used, but since I still have another bunch and a half of kale from last weekend, I’ve got to do some cooking. I’m looking for recipes to use the mint and beets; I’ve never cooked beets, so this is an experiment. At AllRecipes.com, I found this recipe, which uses the beets and the greens of the beets, and it looks like one I may try. This is another recipe I may try in order to use two or three different types of greens.
