Braised Long Beans with Tomato and Garlic

During the Summer, Kale gets a bit tough and mildly bitter. But it still one of the most nutritious foods on the farm. And there are good ways to use it. We tend to stay away from making raw salads with it right now. But as chips and in a soup, kale is good to go.

8 Kale Chip Recipes

If you find yourself needing a quick way to use up most of your CSA share in one big recipe, this time of year always calls for three different crowd pleasing favorites.

A chicken soup can easily use almost everything up in this share. Google is your friend. Just google “chicken soup” and then start adding items from the share behind it. Or do like we do and just chop everything up “except maybe the orange and the cucumber” boil it with with a whole chicken and spices. A curry can even be a little easier. Once again, aside from the cucumber and the orange, these items are all digs for a curry. Just grab a little jar of curry paste and a can of coconut milk on the way home, and you have something healthy and super fresh to dig into all week. And remember, basil and lemon balm love curry. The lemon balm mimics lemon grass quite well.

Also, make yourself cucumber orange salad
