Real Life CSA: week 24, produce

This is our next to last share for the season, and even 24 weeks in, we're getting new items!

New this week is celery root - the two dirt clod looking hairy roots. We've made that into celery root puree (friends who have the same CSA were able to donate theirs to us as well due to an allergy so we had double!). Don't they look like something out of a Hogwarts botany class?

More apples this week. Been eating these dipped in lemon juice and with peanut butter as a snack. Delish!

I usually make a fennel and sausage pasta when we get fennel, but since this is a smaller amount, I might look for something else. But look at these fronds. Crazy.

Very happy for more chard too. It made a great side with the celery root puree this weekend.

Mixed greens and peppers will find their way into salads. The potatoes were a side with coq au vin (Julia's coq au vin) on Sunday. 

Just one more week. Stay tuned!  


  1. In case anyone is interested, this is the recipe I used to make the celery root puree. It was delicious.

  2. I love celery root! I really hope we get some in our CSA this week!
