This week we got butternut squash, potatoes, red onions, carrots, kale, mustard greens, cilantro, parsley, popping corn, apple and apple cider. We have a Full Monty share; We eat mostly vegan and usually have no problem getting through our fruit and vegetables each week. This is our 5th year in the CSA, so by now there are very few surprises. We have our favorite recipes for each vegetable that we return to each year.
With butternut squash, we pretty much always make a butternut squash and chickpea curry from Madhur Jaffrey’s wonderful “World Vegetarian” cookbook. Continue reading

In honor of this year’s final Southside distribution, the Darling House share would like to reflect on a few of the ways this food has integrated into our lives. Some background and habits: we are a household of 4 to 5 room mates that buys most of our groceries communally. There is a whiteboard in the kitchen that we use to track our purchases, as well as the week’s haul from the CSA. We cook a large dinner together 1 to 2 times a week, and about half the share goes into communal meals. Potatoes, onions, apples, died corn and squash go into hanging baskets in our kitchen, and the rest is stored in our fridge, which is always being cleaned out and re-arranged. Those more inclined to biking usually pick up the share in a backpack on their way home from work, and then they’re able to opt out of the volunteer shifts if they want.

Popular for thousands of years, asparagus was grown in ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome. Stories say that the ancient Romans prized the vegetable so much that they had special fleets, running it in to the tables of the privileged straight from the farm. There is also talk of it being “run” from the farms of Roman Britain up into the Swiss Alps for “freezing” in order to be available for important feasts year round. Herbalist John Girard mentioned wild asparagus in the 16th century, and it is found as far back as the 17th century in French cookbooks. The asparagus growing beds in Northern Italy were famous during the Renaissance period. In fact, these graceful spears have always been a sign of elegance, and in times past, were a delicacy only the wealthy could afford. Sounds like thanks to its short growing season, asparagus has always been a highlight in the foodie calendar. Nowadays with globalization, you can get asparagus year-round, typically shipped in from Peru, China, Mexico, & California. However, nothing tastes as good as locally harvested asparagus. So glad that Norman shares his harvest with the Southside CSA!

Last night was one of the best and most rewarding meals I’ve ever made. Knowing that 50% of my ingredients came from a local farm made me so happy and this farm share has changed my life! 🙂 I was never much of a cooker so this is a huge step for me!
Thanks Southside CSA! – Ruth
