|Harvest Fest happened at Algomah Acres.|
And the tomato leaves have succumbed to frostbite. At least the leaves on the field tomatoes have.
(Sorry, no frost photo. Moonlit tomato leaves covered in ice crystals are both breathtakingly beautiful and difficult to capture with a camera.)
Which means this week's share includes Green Tomatoes, along with: Cabbage, Carrots, Apples, Spaghetti Squash, Brussels Sprouts, and Potatoes.
It also means that we have spent our last few days digging carrots and potatoes.
|Ignore all those lamb's quaters seed heads in the background|
and just focus on the sea of carrots.
And our nights rescuing green tomatoes from the cold.
So, instead of an original recipe this week (Even the CSA farmer gets too tired to cook sometimes. We've pretty much just been eating scrambled eggs and baked squash this week.) I'm offering you a greatest hits list of fall recipes from the past and pinterest recipes I think you should try. The focus is green tomatoes and Brussels sprouts, the two trickiest items in this week's share:
This post from 2011 (I've been doing this for longer than I think I have) features two of our favorite fall recipes. Spaghetti Squash with Two Sauces (which has become Scott's birthday dinner of choice) and roasted Brussels sprouts. Both have been mentioned every year for the last few years, and both are worth trying if you haven't yet.
For more Brussels sprouts ideas, check out the Brussels sprouts pinterest board.
I have two favorite green tomato posts. This one features fried green tomatoes, and this one features green tomato relish. I am still waiting for someone to point me towards a good green tomato pie recipe.
There isn't one on my green tomato pinterest board. But maybe you'll find one.
