CSA Week 1 Wrap Up

These are the goodies that I got in my CSA this week.  See full list HERE.



I am sharing the produce with my mom and our friend.  My mom took the fruits (strawberries and rhubarb) to make this fabulous compote.


I requested these beautiful vegetables.  One reason…to try another something NEW.  My mom had read that we can cut up these Hakurei Turnips and eat them raw.  So we tried it…


It kind of tastes like a radish, but a little bit sweeter.  I used the rest of the turnips on the grill.  I sliced them up, covered them with fresh lemon juice, and lemon garlic.  They tasted interesting…I could probably use less lemon next time and more garlic!  But, I would definitely try grilled turnips again.

I also grilled up my asparagus with one of my favorite seasonings, Old Taylor Street Cheese Sprinkle.  The fresh asparagus was DELICIOUS, some of the best I have ever had!

I was a little nervous about being able to use all of the fresh lettuce, so I pulled out the salad spinner.  I love using it, but it takes more time.  I rinsed, drained, and dried both of the lettuces.

  1. The salad spinner is definitely a fixture in my house during lettuce season! I’ll have to try grilling the turnips. I never really know what to do with them.

    • Me either! I am new to turnips as well! Go heavy on the garlic and spices and let me know how they turn out!
      I saw some neat raw carrot and turnip salads online. I”m looking forward to experimenting with everything this summer.
