Every Monday night, the three of us look forward to a kitchen full of locally grown vegetables from MimoMex farm. It was important to us to not only eat healthier, but to get involved in our community and support our local farms. It is always a surprise to see what we will be taking home that evening, looking forward to creating dishes using fresh and seasonal produce. To help store our vegetables, we store most items in the fruit and vegetable drawers in our refrigerator, using plastic onion and tomato savers and GreenBags that help preserve the freshness and prolong the life of our herbs and leafy greens.
With this week’s September 30th CSA share from MimoMex farm, Alison, Shaina, and Kate, aka Coffee & Donuts (more on our share name later…) used this week’s items to highlight the basket’s Mexican flavors, using the corn, cilantro, red onion, and radishes to create chicken corn enchiladas with homemade green sauce! A green enchilada sauce is hard to come by in supermarkets, so we decided to make our own! To make this super easy medium spiced green enchilada sauce, we used this week’s cilantro and red onion, and previous week’s garlic, green bell peppers, jalapenos, and one habanero pepper. We found a good base recipe online, and tweaked it to make it slightly spicier.

We are new to the Southside CSA and enjoying it immensely. We are trying to eat especially healthy as I’m expecting our first baby in October. Here are two recipes we made from our produce this week.

Our share name is KLINE and we are Katie Kline and Brett Scieszka. This is our third year as members of the Southside CSA! We have a veggie, egg, and berry share. I am a graduate student in visual arts at Columbia and Brett is a bartender at Vinegar Hill House (http://vinegarhillhouse.com/
). Unfortunately our current schedules this fall have not allowed us to pick up every week any more so we are now dividing our share in half with a friend, Beryl. Even at that rate – we still have enough food to fill most meals – heck look at that squash!
For 10/15 we received the following:
1 bunch collard greens
1 bunch kale
1 generous bunch cilantro
1 GIANT long island squash (I don’t remember the exact name)
1 dozen eggs
1 bunch radish

With a crazy, busy week ahead of us we picked up our CSA share on Monday night and immediately got down to procrastinating about what we were going to make this week. Our time was going to be pretty limited, so we decided to try to combine as many ingredients as we could into two large meals, which would provide us with ample leftovers for the week. Here is what we got this week:
1 dozen eggs
4 lbs peaches
4 ears of corn
1 bunch of papalo
1 bunch of chard
3 green peppers
1/2 lb cherry tomatoes
1/2 lb tomatillos
1 lb purple potatoes
1/2 lb serrano peppers
So on to the first meal!

Margaret's Heirloom Tomato & Jalapeno Shares. Sept 2008.
My kitchen can never get enough jalapenos, however, i heard a lot of gasps when people saw that there were 16 jalapenos in this week’s share. But you shouldn’t be having any fear to step up from using jalapenos as a small part of a dish to being a main component of a meal.
[Need some inspiration, check out this blow by blow blog post from the B Side Blog of her Jalapeno Cocktail Hour which includes jalapeño cornbread, jalapeño poppers, a shrimp and jalapeño salad, jalapeño-cucumber margaritas (with a candied jalapeño garnish), and a shrimp and jalapeño ceviche. Giving me some ideas for the approaching holiday weekend…]
Here are some of my favorite uses; let us know how you use your sixteen peppers…
(it is a holiday weekend after all…)
- Wanna have the best Labor Day brunch or bbq EVER? Make sure to infuse some vodka or tequila with jalapenos and make some cocktails with kick.
JAMs & JELLYs:
- Get some holiday “favors” together; homemade jams always make Thanksgiving grand and amazing holiday gifts. So many jam combos with fruit and jalapenos out there!
i rarely look beyond my recipe collection for salsa recipes, having been so so so satisfied by my cookbooks (Zarela’s Veracruz and red, hot, & green) but here is some good stuff i dug up from cyber-space…
And of course we can’t forget DESSERTs:
