CSA Delivery – September 14, 2011

This week’s delivery had a few new items that I, of course, had to try. Check out the colour of the peppers – these were listed as ‘Chocolate’ Bell Peppers on my order form and I had to try them. They had the heft and thickness of a red pepper, but the flavour was more like a green pepper. I personally prefer green peppers over red any day, especially when cooking, but these were a happy medium.

The greens offered this week were Spigarello, which are supposed to be less bitter than kale and have more of a broccoli flavour. I’m looking forward to trying them out in my dinner.

This week’s delivery also offered a French Charentais Melon – these types of melons are generally only available at farmers markets because they do not ship well. I’ll let you know how it tastes in a future post!

It is definitely fig season around here and there’s a lot of them in my fridge now. I made a fig and goat cheese pizza over the weekend with my last batch, but still have some leftover – I think some fig jam with Cowgirl Creamery Mt. Tam cheese are in order.

I love that my CSA offers other local products as well – I was running low on my brown rice, so I added my favourite variety to my order – Massa Organics. After all that, there’s the usual staples of baby broccoli and celery. I’m going to miss the baby broccoli once the season is over.
