Fall CSA, Week Six
The air is cold and there is a storm coming over the mountains. It is going to snow tonight. This makes me realize that there are only a few more weeks of the CSA boxes left to enjoy and I am a little sad.
That is … until I see the goodies in this week’s box. What did I get?
- spaghetti squash
- delicata squash
- mizuna and mixed lettuce
AND … a chile pepper ristra from Debbie Coblentz.
What’s a chile pepper ristra? According to the CSA newsletter, it is Mexican folklore that hanging a ristra on your door or in your home brings good luck. The ristra is a bunch of hot peppers attached together by a string that have been dried. The note on the peppers suggests putting a little bit in recipes throughout the year and to use them up by next spring.
Isn’t it cute??
