Organics to You March 15, 2010

by Sherri Koehler on March 15, 2010

Today’s box from Organics to You contains:

  • spinach
  • green kale
  • asparagus
  • a yellow onion
  • green cabbage
  • yellow & orange carrots
  • fingerling potatoes
  • a big avocado
  • Jerusalem artichokes (sunchokes)
  • little Chioggia beets
  • 3 apples
  • 3 pears
  • 2 grapefruit
  • 5 tangerines

From last week the fridge still contains:

  • 2 artichokes
  • Romaine lettuce
  • some broccoli
  • carrots
  • a yam
  • an eggplant
  • several potatoes
  • beets
  • 1 yellow onion
  • 1 red onion
  • some garlic
  • a whole lot of apples
  • too many pears
  • many kiwis
  • 2 honey gold grapefruit
  • 2 Orlando tangerines
The Compost Pail of Shame (what I didn’t use and had to compost):
  • Spinach

Thank goodness for the Interwebs and information on how to store & cook the sunchokes, totally a new veggie in the house for us. We have an embarrassing number of apples, pears & kiwis – Christie has suggested cooking them all together for another fresh batch sauce, it has become a favorite sweet snack for her. I’m pondering the rather large number of carrots and considering if there’s enough to do some soup with them. I really like puréed carrot soups, so this might be a possibility. Might be a simple cabbage stir-fry this week or perhaps a borsht with the leftover red beets & and cabbage.
