CSA Staycation

The kids are away visiting family and we have been having a great time checking out lots of local eateries and barely cooking.  What then to do with the wonderful items in our CSA?

Here is what I did with many of the items we got...

Broccoli – I froze it.  Trim, boil 3 minutes and then submerge in ice water.  Drain and freeze.
Here are great guidelines for freezing many different vegetables.

Chard & Beet Greens – Braised in Tomato Sauce, then frozen
I will eat these with pasta or rice for lunch.

Summer Squash & Zucchini – shredded and froze
I’ll use this later in soups or quick breads.  Follow this link for other great ideas for shredded squash.

Parsley & Basil – froze
Frozen herbs are great for pasta and soup recipes.
