City Fresh Haul


A few weeks ago, my daughters and I signed up for "produce shares" from the Coventry City Fresh program.  To join, you sign up for either a "single" share or a "family" share a week in advance.  Our first shares have been family shares.  The produce is from local farms and is picked and gathered the morning of the share distribution and members pick up their "share" Tuesdays from 5-7 pm. You can then decide if you want to pay for the next week's share or you can skip a week if you like.  We've picked up shares for 2 weeks now and each time there was someone on site making a recipe from one of the items for us to sample.  The link to Coventry City Fresh's blog is http://coventrycityfresh.blogspot.com/2011/06/welcome-to-coventry-city-fresh.html 


Here was our "haul" from the first week;



The items included:
1/2 Pint Apple Butter


8 oz Maple Syrup

2 lbs Corn Meal

1 Quart and 1 Pint Strawberries

1/2 Pint Huckleberry Jam

1 Bunch Green Onions

2 Heads Lettuce

1 Bunch Bokchoy

1 Bunch Garlic Scapes

1 Bunch Mint
 
The variety allows you to enjoy some old favorites, as well as try some new things.
 
Bon Appetit!!
