Eating My CSA

Using the vegetables from my CSA share


A new (to me) resource

I found a new resource over the weekend that I really love. Actually my husband found it at the library. It’s a book called Vegetables by James Peterson.

Now there are a lot of books about vegetables. Some are good, others, eh, so-so. This one is organized differently than any other book on veggies that I’ve run across. He starts with a chapter on Techniques for Cooking Vegetables. Like, what does it really mean to cook them over high heat. He then describes 64 different vegetables, including odd ones like parsnips and radicchio. There is a section of glossy photos that show you how to do things like dicing an onion, or chopping Swiss Chard.

So if you are new to CSAs, i would highly recommend Vegetables by James Peterson.
