RECIPE NOTE: We were unable to dig fresh potatoes this weekend due to wet conditions. We have added an additional recipe for eggplant meatballs. Even people that are not fond of eggplant tend to like this one.

Veggie Notes:

  • Red Cabbage– cooked or raw; salads, sauté, braise, pickle
  • Basil -video link below for easy freezing; or freeze basil balls-food processor leaves with just enough oil to hold together the freeze TBSP scoops on a sheet pan; store in freezer baggie/container; make and freeze pesto in ice cube trays or mini cupcake papers
  • Parsley: wilted parsley? recut the ends and stand in a glass of water. Your can store it this way in the fridge or countertop (change water daily)or store wrapped in damp paper towel in a baggie, or hang to dry; can also be cleaned, dried and frozen in a baggie-pull out leaves to add to cooked dishes; minced and added to salads, sauces, and marinades; puree into dressings
  • Summer squash – yellow & zucchini – very versatile; raw, grilled, pickled, quick bread, sauté, oodles of zoodles; baked stuffed boats
  • Eggplant: grilled, roasted, braised; smaller eggplants do not need to be peeled or salted
  • Tomato – ripen from the inside out and will continue to ripen on the countertop not refrigerate; allow to ripen at room temperature for best flavor; add to sautés, sauces, salads, sandwiches
  • Cucumberstorage options so the last; salads, juice, wedges with salt and pepper; cold soup
  • Jalapeno – add to pickles; slice and freeze; the heat is in the seeds and white pith -use gloves to remove and don’t touch your eyes
  • Fresh Onion – skins are not cured; be sure to remove the tougher outer layer before cutting; tops can be used like the scallion tops sliced thin

Ratatouille – Modern ratatouille uses tomatoes as a foundation for sautéed garlic, onion, zucchini (courgette), aubergine (eggplant), bell pepper, marjoram, fennel and basil.
