Week #23 — This Week’s Share

FULL VEGETABLE SHARE
Potatoes-2 pounds
Garlic-2 bulbs The flavor of the garlic this year is nice and strong although the bulbs are small.
Beets-2 pounds
Lacinato Kale-1 bunch
Brussels Sprouts-1 stalk
Celeriac-1 bulb
Kohlrabi-1 bunch The leaves are beautiful and are a cooking green. The greens are somewhat like a mild Collard. Remove the bulb from the leaves and use separately. The bulb can be eaten raw or cooked. The leaves used like any other fall green.
Carrots-1 pound
Sage-1 bunch
Pop Corn-6 ears
To pop real pop corn from the cob take the kernels from the cob. Start at one end and make path. The kernels next to the opening will pop off a little easier. Put about a tablespoon of oil in a pan with a lid. Do not forget the lid! Heat the oil and pour in 1/2 cup of kernels. Keep the pan on medium high until the popping starts. I usually turn the heat down a little once the kernels really start to pop. Remove from the heat once the popping stops. Add melted butter and salt or what ever you like on pop corn. What a treat. I have heard that you can pop the kernels in a paper bag in the micro wave but have never tried. There is just something really wonderful about popping the corn on the stove. Pop corn will keep for a very long time on the cob or off. A member just wrote that they just popped the corn from last season and it was great.
