rewarded by the great variety
By: carrie doyle (Nov 19, 2012)
Our family of five has enjoyed the Elysian Field Farm for about 4 years. Part of the fun for me is seeing what is in our box each week. The other part is learning how to cook (and sometimes just identify) the wide variety of vegetables in particular that we are blessed with each week. I sometimes use Elise's suggested recipes, or I discover ideas in my cookbooks. I now know we like most root crops roasted, and most greens seasoned and sautéed. Our elementary aged children have gotten in on the fun, and our 7 year old thinks of himself as the zucchini chef of the house. Our 9 year old's favorite part is that the food is organic. Our 5 year old votes for the strawberries. My husband and I did not know before joining our CSA how much we like roasted eggplant and tomatoes, or a head of garlic roasted with fresh beets. It really is impressive how many different types of eggplant, tomatoes, and melon our farmer grows. The colors are beautiful, and it feels so good to be a part of the organic movement in our area. Being a part of the CSA has truly broadened our family's eating habits.
