Week 7 Summer CSA Package
Sweet corn is here, more apricots, and whole wheat linguini
July 17, 2012
For anyone who came to the Taste of Tremont, you know it is time for corn. My staff grilled up almost 1,800 ears of corn in under 8 hrs…on charcoal….with an inch and a half of rain in the mid afternoon. It was a lot of work!

So this week, we’ll be bringing in fresh sweet corn for everyone. In addition to corn, we’ll have a whole wheat linguini from Ohio City Pasta, made with our own organic, soft red winter wheat flour.

This week will be a vegetarian feature. Every few weeks in mid summer I’ll put together a bag that I term a “recycle” bag. Not all the weeks are created equal, and the last two weeks the pork and the chicken has put me way over budget, then the produce came on strong after a few rains. So this week we’ll throttle back some, give you a chance to catch up with whats in your fridge, and feature some more universal ingredients.

Below is this week’s full package:

If you are a true vegan and don’t want the pasta, we will have substitutes for that. I know most of the vegans on my route do enjoy the pasta so it will be available.
