I love to cook. I love my CSA (community supported agriculture).
As The Purple Cook I’ll share with you how our family uses the food we got from our CSA and other local sources. The blog will share recipes, storage tips, and stories of what happens to that food from pick up to kitchen clean up.
A CSA can be fun, adventurous, and surprising.

Welcome to the 2013 CSA Season
The CSA index is full of recipe ideas, the camera is ready
to photograph veggies and completed dishes, essential CSA tools are ready
(salad spinner, ice cube trays, pick up bags), and my family is ready to try
Weekly I will post what we got in the CSA shares and several
ideas for how to enjoy those items.If
we get something unusual or a new variety I will share information on that
item.I will also include any relevant notes
on topics like immediate storage, long term preservation, menu planning, and
I would like to run “Readers
Suggest” posts as often as possible.If you found a great recipe or idea please send me a link in the
comments or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
As each week progresses I will share with you what recipes
were a success, suggestions I have to improve on recipes I’ve tried, and how I’m
keeping up with my CSA (freezing, making stock – whatever it takes).
