Love your CSA & Local Farmer’s Market?
Do you subscribe to a CSA Share and find yourself not using all the produce you receive every week? Or, do you go to your local Farmer’s Market, load up on fresh fruits and veggies and have no idea what to do with them when you get home?
Let’s be honest, it feels GREAT to head to your Share pick-up or the Farmer’s Market and load up on all sorts of goodies. There is something about the experience that makes you feel all motivated to be healthy and ready to feed your family fresh, seasonal foods. But, how many times have you ended up throwing away last week’s produce while you’re unpacking this week’s hall? More times than you’d like to count? (I’m raising my hand over here….)
Get Ready to Actually USE the Produce You Buy!
You can change that though! Each week, I will give you a peek at my Share and let you know how I’m planning on using it. I will also follow-up to let you know how the recipes turned out and any tweaks I made. Your share might look a little different than mine week to week but, (especially if you are anywhere in the Midwest) there will be some crossover and we’ll likely see most of the same produce over the course of the summer.
I will update this site next week, after I’ve picked up my first share of the season! In order to make sure that you do not miss a post on all of the yummy ways you can use the produce you buy this summer, subscribe to our newsletter HERE.
For those of you wondering what in the heck a CSA is, CSA ‘s (Community Supported Agriculture) are an awesome way to get a boatload of fresh fruits and vegetables weekly and support your local growers. In addition, many CSA’s also offer you the opportunity to purchase farm fresh eggs, organically raised meats, and other non-GMO, locally gown/made, good for you products. If you are in the Cleveland area, I cannot say enough good things about Fresh Fork Market. (I have no affiliation with them but have subscribed to their Omnivore share for several years now. There are a ton of pick-up locations and you can order all kinds of extras (including Ohio City Pasta!) and pick them up with your share.
