New Potatoes

[2016 CSA Week 8]

We started to dig the early spuds. Every year I forget just how yummy new potatoes are. Our early potato is the variety "Satina", a yellow fleshed spud that is great for boiling or mashing. We had ours simply boiled with butter, salt and pepper, and they quickly disappeared from the pan. Hope you enjoy them too.

The basil is coming in strong right now, so we will be doing basil and garlic in this week's share. Whip up a batch of pesto and store some in the freezer for winter, if you have any leftovers! 

Please remember to let us know if you won't make it to pick up. We are happy to bag the share up for you to pick up later in the evening/next morning, but if you know you won't be around, please email. We want to be able to pass along the unused shares to the food pantry instead of the compost. Thanks!
