What is a CSA?

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is part of a growing social movement that encourages urban & rural citizens to share responsibility for the land where their food is grown as well as how their food is produced. In simplest terms,

CSA is a partnership between agricultural producers and consumers.

Members or “shareholders” pay a fee at the beginning of the growing season to meet a farm’s operating expenses for the upcoming season. In return, members receive a portion of the farm’s produce each week throughout the growing season.

Fridge-Pickled Kohlrabi

Ingredients

4 small or 2 medium kohlrabi

2 large carrots (optional)

2 T salt

1 C white vinegar

1 C water

2 T sugar

1 1/2 t pickling or kosher salt

3 garlic cloves, roughly chopped

1 t dill seeds

1/2 t brown mustard seeds

2 dried chili de arbol (optional)

6 black pepper corns, crushed

Start by peeling and slicing the kohlrabi. Place in a colander and salt with 2 T salt. Allow the kohlrabi to sit for an hour. In the mean time, peel your carrots and cut into sticks. Combine all other ingredients in a sauce pan. When kohlrabi is done draining, rinse and pack with carrots into a quart jar. Boil remaining ingredients until all of the salt and sugar are dissolved and pour over carrots and kohlrabi. Cover and allow to cool on the counter then refrigerate. Let this sit in the fridge for two days before jumping in. Fridge pickles are good for about three weeks.
