We have two unusual greens in the CSA this week - something to spice things up while we wait for the slow growing early carrots and cabbages that should be ready next week!
The first is Amaranth - an ancient grain with deep red leaves that can also be used early on as a salad green, later as a braising green, and still later as a cut flower. All this before the grain harvest! This multitasking treat makes all the other greens feel lazy!
The Second is Italian Dandelion Greens - they have a little bite to them and they go really well in a salad to balance the sweet baby lettuce. They are one of our favorites on the farm and will be appearing on pizza this weekend!
Speaking of the weekend - we will be hosting Brocklebank Brewery this Saturday for pizza night and we have more mini pies in the works for desert! Looking forward to another fabulous evening!
