spring CSA, week 3

For week 3 of the CSA, the week of St Patrick’s Day, the farm wanted to make sure that we would have the makings of a good Irish meal. So we got a head of cabbage, two turnips, and three pounds of potatoes, along with a butternut squash, a bunch of chard, apples, grapefruits, oranges, and the usual eggs and bread (Great Harvest challah).

I predict corned beef with boiled vegetables in our future.

As for the stuff from last week, we still have the beets and some of the onions and citrus left. Most of the other root vegetables went into Ina Garten’s amazing pot roast recipe, in which we also used a giant meaty chuck roast bought from Breezy Willow Farm.

    • I know, it kills the “local” thing stone dead, doesn’t it?

      Breezy Willow partners with some farms down in FL for its spring CSA (since nothing’s really being harvested in MD right now). I admit I was a bit taken aback by this, but I gotta say, I’m getting used to the weekly infusion of citrus. Those grapefruits, tangerines, and blood oranges are just spectacular. And at least my money’s still supporting a HoCo farmer.
