CSA for the Week of June 27th, 2011

Once again it's Monday and the start to a great week! As we head towards the July 4th weekend we will be stocked with some of your favorite items. We will have some samples out this week to enhance your palate. These will be items you will want to share with your favorite friends and Family.
So come and visit us this week to say hello and sample some of the delectables for the first big outing of the summer.

Our list for the CSA this week are:
4lbs. of squash,
4 bunches of garlicscapes,
3 cucumbers,
1 bag of lettuce,
4 ears of corn,
1 bulb of fresh garlic,
and two beautiful sunflowers.

Recipe of the Week:

Grilled Corn on the Cob with Chile and Lime

  • 6 tablespoons sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon chipotle chili powder or ancho chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon coarse kosher salt
  • 8 ears of corn with husks
  • 2 lime, halved or quartered
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro

Mix sour cream, fresh lime juice, chili powder, and coarse kosher salt in small bowl to blend. DO AHEAD Can be made 6 hours ahead. Cover and chill.

Prepare barbecue (medium heat). Remove outer husks from corn, leaving inner pale green husks attached. Fold back inner husks; remove corn silk. Sprinkle corn with salt and pepper. Rewrap inner husks around corn. Grill corn until husks are charred and beginning to pull away and corn is tender, turning frequently, about 10 minutes. Grill lime quarters until lightly charred, about 5 minutes.

Pull husks away from corn to expose kernels. Place corn and lime on platter. Brush corn with cream-lime mixture. Sprinkle with cilantro.


  1. why do you have your staff repackage Driscoll store-bought strawberries and resell them in fancy little farmers market looking containers for $3 more?

  2. I think this blog post will be more attractive if it has a picture of the actual dish. But by the way thanks for posting.

  3. Good Morning! Thank you for your compliments and concerns. The local strawberries at this time of the year are diminished. A good portion of our customers like to have strawberries even though they are not locally available. We try to provide them as a convenience.

  4. Thank you for responding to the concern. The customers do appreciate the strawberries provided, but it just seems like they don't need to be repackaged. It appears a little deceptive to me.
