CSA Week 02: What do I doooo?!

I’ve seen all of these vegetables before… but have I prepared them? Have I even eaten them before??

From left to right:

Celery – I have to admit I didn’t think it was going to be so big/bushy. I will probably eat this plain and raw because I am lazy. The alternative is to take these and the limp carrots from last week (they wouldn’t be limp if I hadn’t been too lazy to wash and cut them for a week) and make chili, but we already know I won’t be doing that. The only other way I know how to eat celery is “ants on a log” that children apparently eat.

Cantaloupe – Sigh. I still have the one from last week. I love melons when they’re prepared for me, but now I’m going to have to use a cleaver for the first time and clean the seeds out and chop it all. Usually my parents just deal with the watermelon and I sneak in to steal slices. I have gained no further knowledge on what to do with cantaloupes since last week and will eat this raw. Well, both of them. (In one sitting?)

Radishes – I have had a slice of radish once in a salad in 2010. I do not remember what they tasted like. Are they usually eaten raw? Do you… roast radishes because they resemble beets? What are they supposed to taste like at their best?

Kohlrabi – ????????????????????????????

Orange peppers – I will probably eat these raw too. Partially because that’s how I like them best, primarily because I am lazy and uncreative in the kitchen.

Everybody should go buy these things over the weekend and tell me how to cook them or else I will eat them all raw out of the strainer they’re currently in. Also, I’m going apple picking on Saturday, so those seem to be in season as well.

  1. Im not sure what happened to the last comment so sorry if this shows up twice. Celery is great chopped up in anything really. I put it in stir-fry and other tomato based dishes.
    Radishes I adore and just east raw out of the fridge lol. They have a peppery taste I think and should be crisp and juicy. Can’t help on any recipes as they never last that long.
