CSA 2010, Week 7

I’m sliding this one in right under the wire, as I’m about to pick up Week 8 tomorrow…

We received 2 green bell peppers, 2 onions, 3 cucumbers, 1 tiny eggplant, a bunch of fingerling carrots (I made that term up, but I like it!), 5 ears of corn, a small handful of basil, green beans, lettuce mix, 1 small yellow squash, and 2 small zucchini.

The peppers tasted watery to me, but not bitter. The corn was absolutely fantastic, as in previous years. I can’t help but eat some of it raw, sliced off the cobs. I wound up cooking the corn and basil up into Corn and Basil Cakes, which were good — the fresh corn is barely cooked and remains the highlight of the pancake, its sweetness nicely contrasted by the bite of ground pepper. I would make my Corn, Avocado, & Tomato Salad next time, though.
