Veggie Notes:

  • Leeks – sweeter more subtle onion flavor, sliced thin for garnish, freeze sliced no blanching, excellent in potato leek soup, Like onions, raw leeks have a pretty strong flavor. But when they are very thinly sliced, they can be a nice garnish for soups, salads, roasted veggies, meats, fish, or other dishes. You can also mix them into green salads, dips, or salad dressings.
  • Butternut Squash – roasted, sauté, soup, stew, chili, even baked goods
  • Red Cabbage – shredded, slaw, salads, tacos, pickled, roasted
  • Watermelon Radish – raw, pickled, or cooked – braised, roasted, thinly sliced for salads
  • Scallions – garnish soup, stir-fry, scallion pancakes, bake into bread, add to potatoes -either mashed or salad, slice and freeze; 25 ways to use up a bunch of scallions –https://www.thekitchn.com/5-ways-to-use-up-a-bunch-of-scallions-199374
  • Mizuna – Japanese mustard green; mild mustardy peppery flavor. Eat it raw in salads, especially the tender young leaves. Sauté mizuna stems and leaves with onions or garlic as a side dish. It is wonderful in stir fries and is a nutrient-rich addition to soups and stews
  • Jalapeno – quick pickle, cornbread, add to pickles; slice/dice and freeze; the heat is in the seeds and white pith -use gloves to remove and don’t touch your eyes
  • Green Beans – in October!! blanch to freeze, pickled, salads,
  • Garlic-add to everything!!; roasting the whole bulb mellows the garlic flavor-spreadable garlic
  • Mini Sweet peppers-raw or cooked, minimal seeds, frittata, stuffed, omelets, salads, pizza, pasta
  • Eggplant – this is the last of it- plants were picked clean.
  • Summer Squash – last of the season
