The first winter CSA delivery!! We’ve seen almost all of these items before, but most of you are new members. To get started, I’ll give a few basic pointers.
Greens: Wrap them loosely in paper towels, then in a plastic bag, and stick them in the crisper if you have room. Hardier greens (broccoli greens, bok chois, cabbages, kales, chards) can handle being on the bottom shelf that way, but more tender items should get preferential drawer space. If you need something easy to try out the greens, saute a little garlic in olive oil, then toss in a chopped up bunch of [insert green]. If it is bland, add salt and pepper or soy sauce. If it is too bitter, splash with vinegar.
Summer squash: All of these can be eaten as is, skin and all. If in doubt, treat them like a zucchini, but slightly tougher.
