What are Hakurei Salad Turnips?

These are one of our favourite early summer vegetables! They are a juicy buttery small turnip which can be eaten raw or cooked. My favourite way to enjoy them is sliced raw with a bit of olive oil, balsamic and salt. I also love to add them to our salads raw for an extra crunch!

Want a fancy way to enjoy them? Here I have attached a recipe:

Roasted Miso Turnip

Pak Choy

Pak choy is similar to Bok Choy, but has juicy large white stems in comparison to bok choys green thinner stems.

We enjoy steaming our pak choy in a bit of water. Then adding the steamed greens to an asian style bowl with rice and spiced shrimp. I like to chop my pak choy into small pieces before steaming. We like to cook our shrimp in a soy sauce, honey, chilli pepper, garlic and ginger sauce. The sauce can then be poured over the rice and pak choy with shrimp.

Below I have included a similar recipe for spiced shrimp to pair wonderfully with your pak choy:

Pak Choy + Honey Garlic Shrimp

Garlic Scapes

Before we have garlic, we have their tasty scapes in the early summer. There are many ways to use your garlic scapes to replace garlic or onions in your cooking. When we have too many scapes, we like to blend them with olive oil then put away in the freezer in little packs to use in our winter soups.

One of the most popular ways people like to use garlic scapes is in a garlic scape pesto! I have included a recipe below:

Drying & Preserving!

One of the most common complaints we have about the CSA is that there is too much food! I guess this is one of the better problems you can have, but it has us thinking about the need for education around drying and preserving food.

Herbs are an amazing item to dry for winter time. There is nothing better than reaching for the dried oregano from the farm in the winter for pizzas, pasta, soups, seasoning meat, etc. rather than using often flavourless, colourless grocery store bought dried herbs.

We like to dry our herbs by our wood burning stove, or hang them in our kitchen on the cabinet knobs for easy access.
