Great Basin Basket CSA, Week 8 (08/29/13)
This week’s haul included a couple of late summer surprises (all organic):
- Sarah’s Choice melons/cantaloupe
- Seedless watermelon
- Mixed summer squash
- Japanese eggplant
- Mixed peppers
- Cherry tomatoes
- Early Girl tomatoes
- Raspberries (whaaaaaaaaaaaat??!!)
The raspberries barely made it home because my little boy loves them. He had a huge helping with dinner.
And, as weird as rhubarb can be, I really love the smell. So sweet.
The CSA newsletter included a yummy recipe for desert.
1 cup white sugar
1 tbsp instant tapioca
1 tbsp cornstarch
1/8 tsp salt
4 cups rhubarb, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
1 cup raspberries
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup quick cooking oats
1/2 cup butter, chilled
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Great a 9×13 inch baking pan. In a large bowl, combine sugar, tapioca, cornstarch, and salt. Place rhubarb and raspberries into bowl making sure to completely coat with dry ingredients. Pour into baking pan. IN a medium bowl, mix together brown sugar, flour and oats. Cut in butter until mixture resembles pea-sized crumbs. Spread on top of fruit mixture. Bake for 45 minutes or until rhubarb is tender.
Sounds pretty tasty to me.
I’m not sure if I’m going to be able to try this recipe quick enough, though. The boy is really loving those raspberries, straight out of the container. Let me know if you make it!
