A Produce Blog is Born

For a year and a half, our family has been purchasing a “harvest box” from a local farm. The idea came from one of the diabetes educators with whom I work. I thought it sounded like a great way to force me to start cooking more vegetables. As we started receiving boxes, I quickly realized that my repertoire of recipes for veggies was pretty thin. I would spend hours trying to figure out how to cook many of the vegetables in the box. Some were vegetables I had never cooked with before. (Who ever heard of tot soi?) Others were vegetables I never bought, because I didn’t like them as a child. (Cauliflower, anyone?)

My purpose for this blog is to share the recipes I’ve found (and modified), good and bad. Each time we get a box, I will devote one post to the items in the box.

I encourage my readers to comment on any of my posts or recipes. I am by no means an expert cook, though I have definitely gotten a lot braver about deviating from a recipe since I started cooking different vegetables.

So, without further ado, here is the contents of this weeks harvest box.

[galobj viewid=2] That’s all for now. Feel free to comment or send me a note if you have any suggestions for recipes or the blog.

    Ruth, you must share your grilled sweet potatoe recipe. The one with the olive oil and rosemary in the foil packet. Delicious!

    This is going to be great! I love cauliflower – never make it because John hates it and the smell – maybe I just don’t care anymore! And grape tomatos are good without anything else too. And that sweet potato recipe sounds good!!
