CSA Week 16

This week's share is just begging to be turned into a Mexican meal!

Vegetables: 1 bunch scallions, 1 pint cherry tomatoes, 1 butternut squash (approx 1.5 pounds), 1 bunch cilantro, 1 bunch rainbow chard, 1 hot pepper (not sure what kind it is), 1 pound purple and green tomatillos, 1 pound summer squash
Fruit: 2.5 pounds apples, 1.5 pounds concord grapes

Here's what I'm making:

  • Spicy tomatillo salsa (with the tomatillos, hot pepper, cilantro, and some of the scallions)
  • Pico de gallo (with the cherry tomatoes and cilantro)
  • Swiss chard tacos (based on a recipe from Rick Bayless' Mexican Everyday, which we love)
  • Zucchini risotto with pecorino and basil
  • Grilled scallions and leeks (from last week) with romesco
  • Concord grape and fennel soda syrup
The apples are too good to cook with - they're perfectly crisp and just the right amount of sweet and I can't stop eating them!
