My Last Week: It's Been a Good Run!

Cambria's CSA Box, Week Fifteen

Pin it button big

I couldn't believe when I went to pick up my CSA this week that it was the last week! No more corn (which I'm still getting), no more apples (thank goodness, I have so many!), no more kale. Well, of course I can get all of these things any time at the grocery store, but it's not quite the same. So here it is — my final CSA box and what I plan to do with it:

In My Box This Week

Corn
Celeriac (or celery root)
Winter squash (Heart of Gold or Carnival squash)
Apples
Pears
Onions
Potatoes
Bell pepper

How I'm Going to Eat and Cook My Way Through It

Corn: If you haven't frozen your corn yet, and you're still getting some, I would do that this week! Blanch them first before freezing!

Celeriac: First of all, here's how to peel celery root. Then, this Quick Celery Root Salad with Capers and Lemon is tangy and satisfying. I would even add a little freshly shaved Parmesan.

Winter squash: My lovely Carnival squash this week is almost too pretty to eat. Also called Heart of Gold squash, it's a cross between a sweet dumpling and an acorn squash. To that end, you can pretty much cook it as you would an acorn squash, and here are 10 ways to do that.

Apples: I finally got a few tart apples this week, so I'm thinking about making a pie. I'll be following Emma's How To Make a Pie from Scratch, that's for sure!

Pears: Hurray for pears! These Spice and Honey Poached Pears sound like such a warming, delicious, easy dessert this week.

Onions and Potatoes: This week's Scalloped Potatoes with Onions and Cheddar Cheese is one very tasty way to use a lot of potatoes.

Bell pepper: I have a few peppers in my fridge right now, so I think one meal this week will definitely be some kind of stuffed pepper. I'm eyeing some variation of this Mediterranean Lamp and Couscous Stuffed Pepper recipe. Yum!

Is your CSA still going strong? What's in your box this week? Or are you done for the season?
