Here’s this week’s CSA shopping list. I’m super-psyched that it includes a pound of rhubarb, which, as we’ve discussed here previously, I know how to use. Along with the beets. None of the rest of this stuff is particularly novel, but I’d welcome any thoughts people have on what to do with it. Also any suggestions for how best to store lettuce-y type stuff so it lasts a few days. I live alone and can’t possibly eat all the greens within one or two days of pick up, but even though I put them in a special Tupperware that’s supposed to keep lettuce and other veggies fresh longer, I had to throw away half of my lettuce last week because it got really brown before I had time to eat it. Which sort of defeats the purpose. Any ideas here?
1 head broccoli – Farmdale Organics
1 bunch red beets – Farmdale Organics
1 box new red potatoes – Green Valley Organics – 1 quart
1 bunch rhubarb – Elm Tree Organics – 1 lb
1 head endive – Meadow Valley
1 bag green oak leaf lettuce – Back 40 Ranch
1 pkg microgreens – Eastbrook Produce
Btw, the snow peas I got last week were a transcendent experience–it was like eating spring, if spring is sweet, and crunchy, and tastes the way the smell of fresh cut grass makes you feel if you don’t have horrible allergies.
