This is our last share of the year! We’re heading back to freezing, snowy, Minnesota next week and will be there with our families through the new year, so we’re skipping a share while we’re away. I might have to check a bag full of the squash collection that lives on top of my fridge.

As kids we always got an orange in the toe of our Christmas stocking. My family might be finding beets in theirs this year — I have a stash of those, too. My husband is not a winter vegetable kind of guy.

On that note, this collection may disappoint everyone who didn’t respond to my last post about leafy greens, since it looks like I’ll be cooking with more of them this weekend. Ready?

We had a small bunch of the dandelion greens last week, but I just threw them in a pan with the other greens. With this larger bunch I’ll find something more fun.

Carrots and beets are a great combination, but I might whip up a raw salad with them. I’ve made it before but never blogged it. It’s tasty.

Please note that this Napa cabbage clocks in at a whopping 2 pounds. The delicata squash is likely destined for this amazing roasted squash salad.

What CSA items stump you? Is it the prep and cooking of new items, or just finding recipes that use them?

CSA shares are something I want to look more into in 2011. You get so much and all stuff that is incredibly fresh and good for you. Looks yummy!

I love our CSA. Not only do I feel good supporting local, seasonal produce, but we eat a ton more vegetables, especially veggies we wouldn’t pick out at the store. It has its challenges, but I definitely think it’s worth it.
