YOUR WEEKLY CSA GUIDE
Forkful: August 2020 - Week 11
Monday - August 10, 2020
Not a hurricane or tropical storm in sight, we now resume our regularly scheduled program :)
Hurricane Isaias rolled through Western Massachusetts with tropical storm force winds
Tropical Storm Isaias threw a wrench into last week's CSA plans and we want to thank everyone for their support. We never served 100 shares before in a 3 hour period and it was a learning experience for all of us. We know there was a substantial wait in the queue and we appreciate everyone being so patient and kind. We are back on schedule this week and looking forward to some quality time with our favorite people!
Our tomatoes are finally beginning to ripen and we're happy to offer specialties and slicers in the week's share. Our very own leeks will be featured too, they are another first for us, and you will be the first to give them a taste :)
See you all soon!

WHAT TO USE FIRST
DID YOU KNOW:
Leeks have a mild, onion-like taste. In their raw state, the vegetable is crunchy and firm. The edible portions of the leek are the white base of the leaves (above the roots and stem base), the light green parts, and to a lesser extent the dark green parts of the leaves. The dark green leaves can be used in stocks and soups.
HOW TO CLEAN LEEKS FOR BEGINNERS

Leeks are a delicious vegetable, but they're grown in sandy soil, so they need a good cleaning before you use them in recipes.
