Stone Soup Farm CSA: Week Six
I must admit I'm a little amused by how green our CSA shares still are, but there's a glimmer of color there if you squint. Do you see it? No? Well, that's because it's still wrapped. We got two ears of sweet corn in this week's share, and I say that counts as yellow. Also, let's talk about that gorgeous lettuce, all wrapped around itself like a big green rose. Lovely!
We grilled the corn along side some astonishingly good grass fed veal, and I whizzed the basil and some other herbs from our garden into a a pesto to plop atop the chops. (Hee!) I thinned the pesto with some lemon juice and a bit more olive oil and used it to dress a salad of the lettuce and one of the cucumbers. That lettuce though, I swear, it was so darn pretty I almost had a hard time tearing it up to wash and eat.
