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.

Morroccan Eggplant Dip


Ingredients:
1 large (about 1-1/2 pounds) eggplant
3 Tablespoons olive oil
One 8-ounce can tomato sauce
2 cloves garlic, minced or pressed
1 green pepper, seeded and chopped
1 Tablespoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 teaspoons sugar
1 teaspoons salt
1/4 cup red wine vinegar



Directions:
Dice eggplant, discarding ends. In a large frying pan, heat oil over medium heat and add eggplant, tomato sauce, garlic, green pepper, cumin, cayenne pepper, sugar, salt, and vinegar. Cook covered over medium heat for 20 minutes. Uncover and boil mixture over high heat, stirring until reduced to about 3 cups. Cover and chill at least 2 hours. (Freezes beautifully, so buy eggplants when on special and have them on hand for company.)

Makes: 3 cups.
