Tomatillos,  Cilantro,  Hot Pepper,  Romaine Lettuce,  Roma Tomatoes,  Toscano Kale, Chioggia Beets

Meet Sarah Richani

Sarah and her family have been CSA members of our farm for about nine years.  For Sarah, her interest in farm shares began as an interest  in lessening her carbon footprint.  She sought out ways to be more environmentally friendly and along the way, eating local became important.  Once her first son was born, Sarah became even more intent  on sourcing the healthiest, most sustainably produced food available.  Sarah works hard to create healthy and delicious meals for her family.  Her goal to leave the earth in a better state filters through everything she does, including the clothing she wears.  After talking with Sarah, I felt very hopeful that we are moving toward a healthier and more environmentally sound future.


Romaine Lettuce in the Field

Kale Soup

1 bunch kale, chopped and washed

1/2 onion

several cloves garlic, minced

fresh cilantro or parsley, chopped

1-2 tsp turmeric

sea salt and pepper to taste

Place all ingredients in a large crock pot or soup pot.  Fill with water.  Bring to a boil and then reduce heat to a simmer.  Place lid on pot.  Simmer for several hours.

Salsa Verde

1 pint tomatillos

2 cloves garlic, minced

1-2 Tbsp onion, minced

1 bunch cilantro, minced

1 hot pepper, minced

Peel husks from tomatillos and rinse.  They will still feel sticky. Chop tomatillos well.   Mix all ingredients as is or run them through a food processor.  Place salsa in a glass bowl, covered, in fridge for at least one hour.  Enjoy on chips, with eggs or fish, or on chicken.

Next Week……More Fennel, Broccoli Raab
