CSA haul, 12/16/09

Get excited, because today is your first look at our other CSA: Winter Sun Farms. This is a pretty unique model - they buy produce from local farmers during the summer months, flash-freeze it, and then store it for distribution during the winter. You might feel a little skeptical about frozen vegetables, as did we at first, but we quickly learned that starting with good quality vegetables makes a world of difference. These veggies are flavorful and retain a good texture - and it's hard to express how exciting it is to see the bright reds, yellows and greens of summer veggies and fruits just when you're starting to get a little tired of potatoes and beets...

green beans
red tomato (this comes frozen in a bag in a quasi-pureed form)
bell peppers
yellow and green summer squash
pea shoots
