Community Supported Agriculture

I just got my first CSA package and I am so excited!
CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture, and each Tuesday between now and mid December, I will pick up a selection of produce, which comes from a local farm.

Today’s bounty was pretty straightforward:

6 potatoes

6 onions

4 ears of corn

1 head of lettuce

2 pounds of plum tomatoes

16 heirloom cherry tomatoes

1 bunch of lemongrass

Hmmm. Lemongrass. There is the challenge I have been hoping for!

When I signed up for this program last spring, my goals were to support a local farm, always have fresh produce on hand, and to expand my horizons by having to experiment with a vegetable or fruit I was not used to using.
I am going to spend a little quality time with my Asian-fusion cookbooks, and will share my recipe(s) using lemongrass with you shortly.

    I love it when I get lemongrass. Not sure if you got any sturdy stalks but they make great skewers for grilling.
