I’ve been wanting to join a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture – basically, you pay a flat fee at the beginning of the year, then get a share of the harvest every week for the whole season. Good for you, great for farmers!) for a few years, and this year we finally did it! We signed up with Cook Farm here in Bloomington, IL and two weeks ago we picked up our first share!
One of the things I’m most excited about with being part of a CSA, is that it will give me an opportunity to try new foods I wouldn’t have necessarily chosen at the grocery store. It is going to help me along in refreshing my go-to recipe stash!
My favorite from this week’s CSA? Sorrel.
I had never heard of it before, but it is delicious! It has a surprising citrus-y flavor that was great in some summer salads. I also tried two new recipes with it and both were fantastic. First, I tried this Spring Scrambled Eggs with Sorrel. When you eat eggs every day, it’s nice to try a new take on them!
The other sorrel recipe I made was this fantastic salmon dish. Friends, it was SO good. The hubs agreed and Little Miss gobbled it up, too!
I’ll definitely be keeping my eye out for sorrel from now on and I can’t wait to see what we get in our next CSA share. Have you been cooking with anything new lately?
