Weekly Update from David:
Lavender: Can be dried, use flowers in salad, cooked into pastries, added into ice cream, tea or coffee.
Zucchini: If the zucchini you received are more mature, David recommends stuffing them. The blog Fat Free Vegan has a recipe I am excited to try, Eight-Ball Zucchini stuffed with Rice, Basil and Sun Dried Tomatoes. I think I will be using a barbecue instead of an oven in order to keep my home cooler during the cooking process.
Garlic Chives: David recommends cooking them as a vegetable instead of as an herb.
Lettuce: If the leaves of your lettuce are wilting from the heat, soak them in cold water for 30-60 minutes, shake out water, dry with a towel or use a salad spinner and store in an airtight bag.
Raspberries: David recommends eating these right away since they are so ripe. If you want to use them at a later date he recommends freezing them.
Cherries: Enjoy, this is the last share of Bing Cherries we will be receiving.
Peas: David recommends cooking the English Peas since they are more mature at this point in the season. You can steam or add to a dish that you will be baking like a casserole or a vegetables and rice dish.
Kohlrabi: If you have aphids on your kohlrabi, soak in cold water and then rinse while brushing the leaves with your fingers. I will be posting more information on aphids within a day or two.
I will be doing a follow-up post with the identification pictures shortly as well as including recipes that members have submitted and information on aphids.
From our garden to your kitchen, happy eating.
