CSA for the Week of October 23rd:
2 Ears of Corn
1 Bulb of Garlic
2 Bunches of Popping Corn
1 Jar of Tomato Sauce
1 Winter  Squash
2 HG Tomatoes
1 Heirloom Tomato



Thanks to Chef Pat McMahon for this week's recipe:


Spaghetti Squash with Tomatoes, Dill & Sour Cream

We get more and more requests for gluten free dishes. Spaghetti squash is a great substitute for noodles. Let your Fall imagination go crazy!  This recipe makes about 6 side servings.


Ingredients:
1 Spaghetti Squash, about 2 pounds
1 SIW #1 Tomato, about 10 ounces
1 Tablespoon Grape Seed Oil
1 Small SIW Candy Onion, Minced
2 Medium sized Garlic Cloves, Minced
1/2 Cup Vegetable Broth
3 Tablespoons Chopped Dill
1/2 Cup plus 2 Tablespoons Sour Cream, room temperature
Kosher Salt
Pepper mill filled with Telicherry Black Peppercorns

Methodology:
For the squash-
Pierce the Spaghetti Squash through the center with a sharp knife. Steam for 40 minutes until it yields to pressure. Remove from the heat. When cool enough to handle peel away the skin. Cut off the ends, slice the squash open and remove the seed and pulp. Gently separate the “spaghetti” strands and set aside. Be picky, your looking for about a 5 to 6 cup yield. Anything that’s clumped or mushy I put in the veggie broth pot.
For the tomato-
Bring a pot of water big enough to hold the tomato to a boil. Have an ice bath big enough to hold the tomato ready. Core the tomato and make an “X” in the bottom. Cook in the boiling water for thirty seconds. Remove and drop it in the ice water until cool. Peel away the tomato skin and discard. Cut the tomato in half through the center and squeeze out the seeds. Cut the tomato into a small dice and reserve.
To assemble the dish-
Sweat the onion and garlic in the oil. Season with salt and pepper. Add the tomatoes, broth and dill and bring to a boil. Add the squash and stir gently until hot. Reduce the heat to medium and fold in the sour cream. Adjust seasoning and serve.

CSA for the Week of October 15th:
1 Bulb of Garlic
2 1/2 lbs. of Sweet Potatoes
1 Large Indian Corn
1 small Indian Corn
2 Green Peppers
2 HG Tomatoes
1 Heirloom Tomato
1 Green and White Acorn Squash
4 Ears of Corn


Recipe for the Week is provided by Paula Dean




Ingredients

  • 2 cups peeled, cooked sweet potatoes
  • 1 1/4 cups sugar
  • 1/2 stick melted butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract or 1 to 2 tablespoons bourbon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 cup milk
  • 9-inch unbaked pie crust
  • 3 egg whites

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
For the filling, using an electric hand mixer, combine the potatoes, 1 cup of the sugar, the butter, eggs, vanilla, salt, and spices. Mix thoroughly. Add the milk and continue to mix. Pour the filling into the pie crust and bake for 35 to 45 minutes, or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Place the pie on a rack and cool to room temperature before covering with meringue.
For the meringue, using an electric mixer, beat the egg whites until soft peaks form; beat in the remaining 1/4 cup sugar 1 tablespoon at a time. Continue beating until the sugar dissolves and the mixture is glossy and stiff, but not dry. With a rubber spatula, spoon the meringue onto the pie, forming peaks. Make sure the meringue touches the crust all around. Sprinkle with a pinch of granulated sugar. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, or until delicately browned. Cool and serve.

And once again another great recipe from Vanessa Lauria, Thank you.


Corn and mushroom risotto
Serves at least 6-8

This is a crowd pleaser of a recipe. And I do mean a crowd- one batch made full course meals for several days. The sweet and crispy corn is a perfect complement to the creamy rice with a tang from the cheese and savory bits of mushroom. I do find that corn risotto is a little less starchy than my typical risotto recipes, but that might have to do with the corn ratio I used- lots of veggies and less rice. I used to be intimidated by risotto before I'd ever tried to make it. Don't be- I never stir constantly as recipes often require. Keep the burner at an even med/med-low heat and stir every few minutes. 

Ingredients:
6-8 corn, kernels removed and cobs saved (for broth) (CSA)
2 cups arborio rice
2 Tbsp olive oil
2 Tbsp butter
1 large candy onion, chopped (about 2 cups) (CSA)
8 oz of button mushrooms, sliced 
splash of balsamic vinegar (available at SIW)
1 cup white wine
6 cups of vegetable broth 
salt and pepper to taste
1-2 Tbsp fresh chopped basil (available at SIW)
1 cup of grated pecorino romano or parmesan (available at SIW)

1. Prepare your broth. Heat 6 cups of veggie broth in a stock pot. I use bouillon cubes if I don't have time to make broth and usually use a little less to reduce the salt content. Add cobs that have been stripped of kernels to the broth. Let it boil for a bit, giving the cobs time to add lovely corn flavor to the broth. Then remove the cobs and keep the broth hot.
2. In a large dutch oven or risotto pan over medium heat, saute the onions and mushrooms in the olive oil and butter for about 10 minutes, until the onions are soft and translucent. Season with a little salt and pepper. Add a splash of balsamic vinegar to punch up the mushroom flavor while they cook. 
3. Add the rice, stirring well for a minute or so to heat the grains and coat every grain in fat. Then add the cup of white wine (pour yourself a glass if you haven't already!). It should sizzle a little as you stir it all together. Once that has absorbed you can begin adding the hot broth. I add a ladle or two at a time, stirring to incorporate and then keeping an eye on it as I do something else in the kitchen- like prep a garden salad. When I stir and hear a little sizzle, revealing the bottom of the pan- enough broth has been absorbed to add some more. Keep this up until you've added all but a little broth. Here is where I add the corn so that it retains it's crispy sweetness. Add the last of the broth, stir and taste. To check that the rice is perfectly cooked, take a grain out and smear/wipe it on something (I use my black cooktop). If the rice still needs time, there will be a little flecks of hard white in the center of the grain. You want the rice smear to be starchy and translucent. Add a little extra broth (water is fine) if needed. It should be al dente with a little chew. Stir in the grated cheese, add your fresh basil and serve immediately.

Roasted Tomatoes
The kitchen counter is full of tomatoes from each week's CSA. I've made a dozen variations on a tomato salad- from corn and heirloom cherry tomatoes with balsamic and basil to garlicky green beans and tomatoes. Tonight I had a bunch of really ripe stragglers- each with a bit of a bad spot. My #1 tomatoes turned #2 overnight! Here's a super easy recipe to regain counter space and make quick work of a colander full of tomatoes. These roasted tomatoes keep at least a few days in the fridge and I add them to omelets, soup, quiche, pizza, pasta sauce, etc. They also freeze well to brighten winter meals. Whenever I use the oven, I try to cram it full of veggies to roast to conserve energy and save time during the week. Roasted potatoes with rosemary, tin foil parcels of beets sprinkled with some good sea salt, chopped medleys of eggplant, onion and zucchini.. yum!

Ingredients:
tomatoes (sliced about 1/2 inch thick, seeds removed) 
garlic cloves (peeled and left whole or cut in half)
olive oil
dried oregano
salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Lightly coat several baking trays with olive oil. Arrange tomato slices on the trays, skin side down. 
Tuck garlic cloves into tomato crevices. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and oregano. Drizzle with a little more olive oil. Bake for 45 minutes to 1/5 hours
depending on how thick and watery your tomatoes are. You want them to shrink down a bit and lose a lot of their moisture without burning. Keep 
them in a covered container in the fridge with a drizzle of olive oil on top.

2 Heirloom Tomatoes
2 HG's Tomatoes

Many thanks once again to Vanessa Lauria

Recipe by Vanessa Lauria

This weekend was delightfully cool. Great sleeping weather and a nice breeze. The moment the weather starts to remind me of fall, I break out this dish (even though it is still August).  Colcannon is basically mashed potatoes and cabbage- but somehow it is so much better than that description :) Colcannon is pretty cheap to make, is warm and totally comforting and goes well with a variety of other dishes. I always try to have some kind of green, depending on the season and what's in my CSA share. Green beans sauteed with garlic, a squeeze of lemon and some slivered almonds would be delicious. A quick saute of zucchini and red onion? Yum. A tomato salad with basil and fresh corn? Now we're talking!

Ingredients:
2.5-3 lbs potatoes (I really don't measure- cut enough potatoes into big chunks (skins on) to cover the bottom of a big pot- maybe 6-8 big potatoes) (part of this week's CSA)
2 tsp salt, divided
1/2 a green cabbage or 1.5 pounds of kale, finely chopped
1 broccoli, super-chopped (I mean baby florets)
lots of garlic, minced to taste (available at SIW)

1 cup chopped leeks (this time of year I'm using up frozen leeks from last fall)
1 cup evaporated milk (or half and half for more decadence) (or plain yogurt available at SIW)
1-2 Tbls chopped parsley (available at SIW)
1/2 tsp pepper

Cover the potatoes and 1 tsp salt with water (by 2 inches) and boil for 15-20 minutes or until tender. Once the potatoes are on, I chop the cabbage and add that so they all cook together.

While the potatoes and cabbage cook, in a small sauce pan, combine the milk, garlic, leeks and parsley. Heat on medium for 10 min or so (I do this until my frozen leeks are defrosted and cooked. This will probably finish before the potatoes are done- so just turn off the heat and let sit.

At the end of the potato cooking time, throw in the broccoli (they only need a minute or so in the boiling water).

Drain the veggies and return to pot. Add the milk mix, 1 tsp (or more to taste) salt, the pepper and some plops of butter. I mash it all together with my immersion blender, but mash however you choose (a potato ricer works okay- but you have to scrape it frequently b/c of all the potato skins and cabbage bits). That's it!

I always mean to add lots of cheese and bake this in a casserole, but forget to. Leftovers are great for breakfast on a skillet (I think this is called bubble and squeak).

Another great recipe from Vanessa Lauria!

Red Potato, Scape and Fresh Corn Pizza

I love grilled pizza- perfect for summer because it cooks quickly and you don't need the oven on in the kitchen!
This week I made pizza inside with all the windows open and a lovely breeze coming through. Your favorite pizza dough
recipe will work (pre-made dough is fine too!). Here are links for 2 recipes I use frequently: when I feel like kneading- 

The quantities for ingredients are flexible, depending on how many pizzas you are making. In our kitchen, we like to 
make a few small pizzas and experiment with toppings. Thin slices of potato crisp up beautifully and a squeeze of lemon really
brightens things up. Garlic scapes lend a mild garlic flavor and a sprinkling of green. They are sadly no longer in season at SIW,
but you may still have a few bunches in the fridge- I know I do! No worries if you are out- substitute thinly sliced garlic or scallions.

Ingredients:
several small red potatoes, sliced very thinly (CSA)
1 bunch of garlic scapes or scallions or garlic, chopped fine (scallions and garlic available at SIW)
2 corn, kernels cut off (this week's CSA share)
1 lemon, for a squeeze or two of juice
fresh or dried rosemary for sprinkling 
other fresh herbs (available at SIW)
fresh mozzarella cheese (available at SIW)
prepared pizza dough

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. If you have a pizza stone, preheat this as well. 

Prepare your potatoes. Saute the thinly slice potatoes over medium heat in a nonstick skillet with a little olive oil. Add chopped scapes 
(if using garlic, add it to the pan at the very end so that it doesn't burn) and continue to cook. Cook for about 10 minutes, flipping and 
babying the potatoes so they get a chance to cook through and maybe brown a bit. 

Prep your pizza dough- shape and stretch it and place on the back of a 
cookie sheet that has been dusted with cornmeal (what I use as a makeshift pizza peel). Top the dough
with thinly sliced fresh mozzarella cheese. Now comes the fun part! 

Top the pizza. spread potato slices and scapes evenly over the cheese. Sprinkle the corn kernels on top (no need to precook).
Add fresh herbs to your liking. Slide the pizza onto your hot stone and cook about 10 minutes or so- keep an eye on things.
You want a super hot oven so the crust can cook and everything gets all melty together. When the pizza comes out of the 
oven, give it a squeeze of lemon juice, or pass half a lemon around the table. Enjoy!
