This week’s delivery had a really exciting element – vanilla beans! I have no idea what I’m going to do with them yet, but it was so exciting to be able to order them through my CSA, that I just had to add them to my basket. These aren’t locally grown, but available through a group in Berkeley who were in the Peace Corps together in Madagascar that developed close relationships with vanilla bean farmers there and now run a business in the Bay Area.
Pomegranate season is always exciting even though they are so much work to prep – all worth it though.
Broccoli, kale, cilantro, leeks, red potatoes and onions were all staples that I needed for the holidays, so I ended up ordering a few extras this week – saved me a trip to the Farmers Market this week with all that is going on over the holidays.
