CSA pick up, August 6

There are some veggies that just scream summer.  Beans, Tomaotes, Cucumbers and Peas in the pod.  None of these things taste like anything much in the winter time, if you can find them at all.  Generally we tend to think of  Cauliflower as a winter veggie.  Something to eat when all of the good stuff is gone.  This is what you might think if you haven't ever eaten Cauliflower from Manitoba, IN SEASON! Right now the Cauliflower is in full season, and delicious.  The taste difference between summer and winter cruciferous vegetables is incredible.  Lightly steamed, oven roasted or made into a soup, any simple preparation will do as the taste is so incredible. On top of being incredibly delicious, cruciferous vegetables are filled with vitamines, fiber and cancer fighting properties.  http://www.cancer.gov/cancertopics/factsheet/diet/cruciferous-vegetables The walla walla onions in your share this week are a sweet onion variety.  Sweet onions are not defined by a sweet taste, but rather by a high water content.  A sweet onion is one that has a high water content, and a short shelf life.  They can not be stored like cooking onions, and so have a short season.  That's why you will only find Vidalia onions in the spring time.  These onions have a great fresh sweet crunch and are best eaten raw on salads, sandwiches or hamburgers.  They do not caramelize well as their high water content tends to make them go to mush when you cook with them.  So if you're thinking of beautiful brown sweet fried onions, these aren't the onion for that dish. Don't like raw onions?  These walla walla are great in a soup or a stew or a stir fry. Full share to contain a minimum of 7 of the following items.
