Chatfield Farms CSA e-news: June 8 - 12

Posted 6/5/2015 10:13am by Josie Hart-Genter.

Dear Shareholders,

Distribution Time: 4-7 p.m.
We know the pickup time window may be difficult for some shareholders, but we are unable to stay past 7 p.m. because distribution days are very long for the farm team- we start harvesting at 6:30 a.m. and don't conclude the day until 8 p.m.

If you can't make it to distribution between 4-7 p.m., please find someone who can help out with pick up. Thank you!

featured recipe for june 8 - 12

Miso Pickled Hakurei Turnips
Last year we sent out a butter/miso/honey recipe for the first round of turnips so I thought sticking with miso woul dbe a good idea! 

Hakurei Turnips are mild, sweeter turnips that usually lack the bitterness of other varieties. They are quite tasty, lightly sautéed, roasted, or pickled. Reserve the greens to sauté with eggs or other braising greens.

1 bunch hakurei turnips, trimmed and thinly sliced
1 tablespoon miso paste
½ rice vinegar
1 teaspoon sugar
½ teaspoon crushed black peppercorns
½ inch ginger knob, peeled and grated
2 scallions or green onion, thinly sliced

Combine vinegar, miso, sugar and pepper. Stir until miso and sugar dissolve.
Place turnips, ginger, and scallions in a pint sized mason jar.
Pour vinegar mixture over turnips. If there isn’t enough liquid to cover them, add water.
Refrigerate for at least an hour before eating.
