***CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. For the summer we have teamed up with Orchard Hill Farm and we deliver fresh, organically grown produce from their farm to the doors of families in London. For more information please see this post here.***

 

Once again this week we see the addition of new summer produce to our bins.  This week there are cucumbers – some of which are close to 2 feet long. There is also a stunning mix of colourful string beans that we can’t wait to try. There are also a new assortment of summer squashes to try out.  I did some research on the summer squashes because they are new to us too. I know wikipedia isn’t the most reliable source but I did find some information there about summer squash and the various types. Some of the types we have seen include, yellow crookneck, and pattypan/sunburst.  We have found some recipes to share with you. Not all of them are necessary grain free most can be adapted. Here is a few recipes from yummly.com, and crookneck squash frittata.  For those looking for ideas for cauliflower I found a delicious cauliflower pizza crust that I hope to try our this week.
