This week may be the most colorful share of the season! Literally. Rainbow carrots from Three Sisters Farm and rainbow chard from French Farms will add lots of multicolor meals to your week. We're also including bright nasturtium flowers to your salad mix and instead of a boring bunch of cooking greens, we're making a bouquet with three different colored crops from the farm.
Small and large shares:
Stir fry bouquet (tatsoi, rapini, mustard)
Lettuce mix with edible flowers
Large shares also get:
It's peak citrus season in Florida guys! We got a hold of organic grapefruits from a smaller grove in Central FL. The fruits are huge, so juicy and delicious. Enjoy. We'll try to get more citrus in the next few weeks to take advantage of what our state is producing. Some of the smaller groves grow very unique varieties that you can't even find in the stores.
Meet Rachel, she grows food at Three Sisters Farm in Redland right across the street from the Fruit and Spice Park. This week we are including their perfectly bright rainbow carrots in the shares. My personal favorite way to eat carrots lately is halved lengthwise and roasted with oil, salt and pepper. So simple and so satisfying. These rainbow carrots will be awesome shredded in a salad or a slaw too.
This is Calabaza, also from Three Sisters Farm. It's a type of pumpkin that grows really well in our South Florida climate and soil. The flesh is super bright yellow, almost neon, and the flavor is very rich; it makes a mean pumpkin soup or pumpkin bread; you can also roast it in pieces with your rainbow carrots to bulk up your meal.
We are harvesting a beautiful multicolor salad mix for you guys this week and the best part is the nasturtiums. You can use this salad like any other baby greens with your favorite dressing or maybe you'll get inspired to try a totally new dressing. Maybe something with grapefruit in it? I found this yummy recipe to put over a bed of baby greens, pistachios, a little red onion and gorgonzola cheese.
