Original Recipe from foodnetwork.com ( courtesy of Melissa D’Arabian).
This recipe calls for Rainbow Chard – but any Chard or Kale will work nicely with it! Feel free to even throw in spicier greens such as Mustard greens if you like – just prep them all as you would the chard.
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 cloves garlic, smashed
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 large bunch Rainbow chard, ribs removed and chopped, leaves roughly chopped
Splash red wine vinegar
Add the oil to a large saute pan with the garlic and red pepper flakes. Cook over medium heat until the garlic turns golden. Remove the garlic and discard.
Add the chopped Rainbow chard ribs and saute until soft, about 4 minutes.
Add the Rainbow chard leaves and season with salt, to taste. Cook until the leaves are wilted.
Stir in a splash of red wine vinegar. Serve immediately.
For Week #1 of the 2019 FACSAP Summer Harvest, we anticipate the following this Thursday:
BLENHEIM ORGANIC GARDENS – Lawrence and Becky Latané
Rainbow Chard bunches
Tuscan Kale bunches
Heirloom Mint bunches
As far as I can tell, heat has ruined our turnips (which are usually very dependable) and I need to give the Tuscan Kale time to regenerate after this week's harvest which will completely strip the plants to remove leaves damaged by cabbage moths.
Next week, we expect to have beautiful Napa cabbage and new red potatoes.
GREEN THUMB GROWERS – Tom Miller
No harvest this week.
Anticipating our first harvest within the next couple of weeks!
DOWNTOWN GREENS YOUTH FARM PROGRAM – Jennifer Gron
Fresh herb bundles, mostly Oregano and some Thyme.
Here's what we're anticipating for our first share of the 2018 Season:
From the Youth Farm Program at Downtown Greens:
- One unique item per share member from the “Harvest Treasure Chest” grown by the Youth Farmers at Downtown Greens: choose from bundles of radishes, potted lemon balm starts, and bundles of herbs (basil blends, thyme, oregano).
From Green Thumb Growers:
From Blenheim Organic Gardens:
- Pea Shoots (the tender tops of pea vines; may be sauteed or eaten raw)
From Hartland Natural Farm:
- Collard Greens
- Curly Kale
- Salad Mix
- Lettuce Heads
Each week, our growers and volunteer organizers work together to create a balance share for our members. These share predictions are subject to change, usually due to weather or crop conditions, but this is our best estimate as to what we expect in our weekly share as of Tuesday.
