CSA Week 3: Corn

Our third week's CSA share arrived with sweet corn, green heads of lettuce, shallots, broccoli, and green bell peppers.  For those who not been following along on the CSA Insider or social media (@nutritiondmp), join us! We want to hear what recipes and information you want to learn about! Plus, we give you tips and information to use local produce before it comes out on the blog. ---

Shallot: What is This?

Shallots are in the onion family.  If you avoid onions for their strong flavor and tendency to make you tear up, give shallots a try in place of onion in your favorite recipes.


A goal of CSA Insider is to give CSA recipients simple recipes to make with their foods. No reason to let your money and food to go waste! The CSA Insider e-update went out on Friday to participants who signed up, with a first look at the recipes. This week, we also share a skill set for using corn.
