Winter CSA – Week of November 30

Hello CSA Members and welcome to the Penn’s Corner CSA Winter Edition! Here, you will find information about what products come in your share each week, what farm they were grown on, how best to store them, and some recipe ideas for each product. If you are mostly here for recipes, our Pinterest board is a great place to find all of the recipes we have shared in one convenient place. Follow the boards for your favorite veggies for inspiration! 

We are starting this CSA season off with one of my fall favorites: apple cider from our friends at Kistaco farm! We are also happy to pack this share with lots of goodies: two different kinds of greens, a delicious gouda cheese from Hidden Hills Dairy, a couple storage crops, and even a last taste of summer with some poblanos from Clarion River Organics. Thanks for stopping by!

THIS WEEK’S HARVEST

1.5 lbs carrots, River View Dairy (OG)
1 bunch green kale, Clarion River Organics (OG)
3 lbs sweet potatoes, River View Dairy (OG)
1/2 gallon apple cider, Kistaco Farm

OG = Certified Organic, CNG = Certified Naturally Grown


Sweet Potatoes

Grower: River View Dairy

Store: If stored in cool dark area, sweet potatoes will last about 1 month. Store sweet potatoes in a loosely covered bag to allow for air circulation. Do not refrigerate raw sweet potatoes, as doing so can alter their taste and flavor during cooking.

Recipe: Mediterranean Baked Sweet Potatoes, Asian Roasted Sweet Potatoes with Miso Butter & Maples, 1 Pot Kale & Sweet Potato Curry

Poblano Peppers

Grower: Clarion River Organics

Store: Store unwashed (or washed and dried) peppers in the refrigerator in a loosely closed plastic bag. Moisture is a pepper’s enemy and hastens spoiling. For peak flavor and nutrition, use within a week.

Recipe: Rice & Bean Stuffed Poblano Peppers, Crispy Homefries with Roasted Red Onion & Poblanos, Smoky Lentil Salad with Zucchini & Poblano Peppers

Chioggia Beets

Grower: Clarion River Organics

Store: To keep the beets dry, store them and the leaves, unwashed, in separate plastic bags in the vegetable drawer.

Recipe: Vegan Beet & Avocado Poke (Sushi) Bowls, Winter Beet Salad with Goat Cheese Dressing, Pumpkin Polenta with Roasted Beets, Roasted Green Beans with Beets, Feta & Walnuts

Carrots

Grower: River View Dairy

Store: Carrots will keep in the refrigerator washed with the tops cut off for 2 to 4 weeks.

Recipe: Carrot Ginger Soup, Quick & Crispy Vegetable Fritters, Roasted Beets & Carrots

 

Kohlrabi

Grower: Clubhouse Gardens

Store: Cut off the leafy stalks (you can use the leaves as you would kale or collard greens; be sure to use them with a few days) and scrub the kohlrabi bulbs clean, wrap them loosely in plastic or a paper bag, and refrigerate them until you’re ready to use them. Fresh kohlrabi will last up to several weeks in the fridge.

Recipe: Kohlrabi Carrot Fritters with Avocado Cream Sauce, Simple Roasted Kohlrabi, Asian-Style Kohlrabi with Garlic & Egg

Yellow Onions

Grower: Clarion River Organics

Store: Onions can last for several weeks (if not months) without compromising their taste or nutritional value. However, you must be sure to store them in a cool, dry, well-ventilated place. Once you cut an onion, wrap whatever portion you don’t use in plastic wrap, and put it in the refrigerator. It will keep about 4 days.

Recipe: Onion Upside-Down Cornbread, Baked Blooming Onion, Porkchops with Caramelized Apples & Onions

Gouda Gold

Grower: Hidden Hills Dairy

About: This cheese is made only in the summer months when the cows are on pasture to capture the natural golden color of the grass. Aged 5-8 months, this cheese works equally well on a cheese tray, baked in a casserole or paired with fruit.

Recipe: Apple, Gouda & Farro Salad, Gouda Grits with Brown Butter Shrimp, Roasted Poblano, Corn & Potato Chowder with Bacon & Gouda

Hydroponic Lettuce

Grower: Harmony Grove

Store: Make sure the lettuce is dry and store it in an open bag in your refrigerator.

Recipe: 20 Healthy & Delicious Salad Dressing Recipes

 

 

Green Kale

Grower: Clarion River Organics

Store: Store kale in the coldest part of your refrigerator. Wash as you’re using it. If it begins to wilt, give the ends a chop and place it in a container filled with lukewarm water until the leaves are crisp. 

Recipe: Sauteed Kale with Smoked Paprika, 20-minute Asian Kale Salad, Kale Quinoa Bites

Fall CSA – Week of November 9

Well, CSA members, this is our second to last CSA box for the season! Thanks for going on this local food journey with us. We hope you’ve enjoyed all of the fruits, vegetables, and treats of the season. We have been especially excited about the diverse variety of squash and apples we have been able to source from Western Pennsylvania farmers this year. A few weeks back, we shared a helpful infographic for distinguishing squash varieties, and here is another one for PA apple varieties. Our farmers have an even larger spread of apples that can be purchased through our online farmstand, including Cortland, Jonagold, Northern Spy, and Macoun, if you would like to deepen your local apple research before the season runs out!

Just as a reminder in case you missed the post last week, you can still order your Thankgiving turkey from Penn’s Corner until November 10th! Check out our last blog post or read more here. We are happy to be supporting local farmers using sustainable and humane practices!

Also, keep in mind that our Winter CSA sign-ups are still open until midnight on November 20th. We hope to continue bringing local goods to you and your family through the off-season!

Recipe: Tatsoi Saag Paneer (Indian Greens & Cheese), Potato, Tatsoi & Caramelized Onion Enchiladas, Stir-fried Tatsoi with Crispy Tofu and Sweet & Sour Sauce

 

Sweet Potatoes

Potatoes

Grower: Weeping Willow Farm

Store:  New potatoes can be stored at room temperature, but because they have not been cured, they won’t last as long as regular potatoes — several days instead of several weeks. When refrigerated, the starch will begin to convert to sugar, so if they’re chilled for very long they’ll taste sweet.
