As leaves start to flutter to the ground and dusk descends earlier in the day, now is the time to cozy up with this week’s lineup of colorful fall offerings—like vibrant purple eggplant, ripe yellow peaches, sweet corn, red peppers, tomatoes, pluots and Persian cucumbers, as well as a bevy of greens including purslane, rainbow Swiss chard and pea shoots and then tender, fragrant herbs. Also complemented by farm-fresh eggs, Pomodoro bread and a maple cinnamon-spiced nut butter, this box is a lovely snapshot of the season at its best.
Here are some recipe ideas for the week:
Roasted Grapes with Thyme
These juicy grapes boast an intense flavor, and are wonderful served with a sharp cheese and toasted bread.
Corn Chowder with Red Pepper & Onion
Fresh sage and a hint of chile pepper give this sweet chowder just a subtle hint of spice.
Escarole Salad with Grana-Dijon Dressing
A wonderful side salad!
Rainbow Swiss Chard with Lemon Citronette
A light, lemony dressing adds bright appeal to tender Swiss chard.
Glazed Hakurei Turnips
These buttery glazed turnips are sure to delight.
A great way to use up extra garlic, or this week’s red garlic, this mellow confit makes an amazing topping for pizza, pasta and crostini.
