The variety of bounty of the boxes this week I hope is pleasing to you all. We still have a small, steady stream of tomatoes coming in from our high tunnel. Everyone will receive a black icicle tomato and another slicer.
The last of the fennel is given this week. Enjoy it in a stir-fry as it adds a nice flavor to this style dish.
Newbies this week include our Japanese daikon radish and rutabaga. The daikon would be the big, long white radish. My son Ashlan nearly ate the whole thing in one setting. I peeled it and sliced it thin. The crunch is sweet with a slight kick. This is our first time growing these daikons and they are a nice addition to your salad or eaten as an afternoon snack.
The rutabaga is the large root crop, yellowish tan with a purple color on the top. We enjoy eating roasted rutabaga fries as a side dish to our meals. Some boil them and eat them mashed or added to potatoes and mashed. Peel the tougher outer skin. Some will see a few surface blemishes but these peel right off. Cook well until tender for a sweet, nutty, earthy tasting side dish.
