CSA Week 7: Eggplant https://web.extension.illinois.edu/dmp/eb344/entry_13512/ Sun, 05 Aug 2018 09:00:00 +0000 https://web.extension.illinois.edu/dmp/eb344/entry_13512/ Our seventh CSA share arrived with cantaloupe, tomatoes, eggplant, cucumbers, bell peppers, zucchini, sage, and heads of cabbage.  No corn this week.
Cantaloupe Pickles. We got another HUGE cantaloupe in our box this week. If you haven't tried any of last week's recipes, this is the week. Or try these Cantaloupe Pickles from the National Center for Home Food Preservation.

Freeze Cabbage. Blanched and frozen cabbage is a great way to use up any cabbage you cannot eat before it softens. Frozen cabbage works best is cooked recipes, like soups and casseroles. See these instructions on freezing cabbage from the National Center for Home Food Preservation.

Fruit on a Sandwich. When you get a lot of the same food - like the huge cantaloupe from this week - it helps to think outside the recipe box. Fruit on salads is fairly well-known, but also try fruit on sandwiches. We have a easy chicken sandwich recipe with cantaloupe in the next section below.
