Stone Soup Farm CSA: Week Six

Stone Soup Farm CSA: Week 6
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!

195/265: Happy Veal Chop

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.


  1. Yay, corn season is here!! I think I'm going to pick a few ears up at the farmers market today. :D

  2. ah, corn!!! summer is officially here now :) that lettuce does look gorgeous! reminds me I have some in my fridge right now...

  3. I love these posts that focus on what you do with your CSA produce. I'm not a meat eater, but the veal looks wonderful and I bet the pesto was fantastic on it (did you cook it in the oven?)

    Have a great weekend!

  4. Yaaay corn!

    Brian, we cooked the veal on the grill, and we did the corn there, too - pull back the husk and remove as much silk as you can, pour in a little beer, then re-wrap in the husk and grill over the cooler side of the grill for 10-15 minutes, turning once in a while. Pretty darn awesome.
