CSA, Farmers Market, and Home Harvest

 

Sugar Snap Peas from our Garden

Sugar Snap Peas from our Garden

The summer’s bounty greeted us warmly last weekend when we received our first CSA Share. Although smaller than I expected, we still got some good stuff including strawberries, onion, lettuce, kohlrabi, rhubarb, pinto beans, and a calendula plant which we planted in a bigger pot. We picked up the share at the Beaverton Farmers Market but did not buy anything else as everything seemed to have gone up in price. I made some strawberry rhubarb crisp, used some lettuce for noodle soup, and made green curry with the kohlrabi. The curry was really interesting and surprisingly good. We’ve never had kohlrabi before but we experimented and diced some up for the curry. With the addition of sugar snap peas and Thai basil from our garden, it turned out to be one of the best curries that came out of our kitchen. There was no recipe as I used Curry Simple which I highly recommend, by the way. Not the most cost-effective but I make it a point to always keep some in the pantry. There is no picture either as the veggies came out slightly overdone making them less presentable 🙁 Those sugar snap peas from our garden were awesome! I don’t normally like peas but these were delicious. I have to find more recipes to make them.

Do you have any good sugar snap pea recipes to share?
