What’s in the basket
1 dozen corn
1 bag kale
A few garlic
1 head broccoli
1 bag basil
1 bag tomato
Please remember to wash all the veggies as I only field wash them to knock most of the dirt off. Berries and other typical fruits are harvested in the middle of the day to insure dryness. Wash these just before use to prevent spoiling.
The greens are harvested in the morning at the peak of cellular integrity (turgor pressure). Place these in your refrigerator to keep them crisp.
What to do with some of what you have in the basket.
Oven dried tomatoes. Use them in salads or pasta dishes (or just for snacking)
4 hr 30 min
Halve 2 pounds plum tomatoes lengthwise. Place cut-side up on a baking sheet, season with salt and let stand 20 minutes. Roast in a 250 degrees F oven until slightly dry but still juicy, about 4 hours. Drizzlewith olive oil and sprinkle with thyme.
