CSA Summer Share Week 5

Hi Everyone! Week 5 is already here, wow! This weeks new items are turnips and cucumbers.

Glazed Turnips Recipe

  • 1lb fresh turnips
  • 2 tbsp low calorie butter (I used Brummel & Brown)
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup parsley, finely chopped
  • 2 tsp fat free vegetable broth
  1. Peel turnips, remove stem, and slice thickly
  2. Simmer them in salted water for about 10 minutes. They should be just tender when you take them out of the water.
  3. Drain them very well. Heat some butter in a skillet and brown the turnips in it.
  4. Season with salt, pepper, paprika and brown sugar, turning the turnips around to get colored. Add stock as needed to make a thin glaze. Taste to adjust seasonings.
  5. Chop parsley or celery leaves and sprinkle over turnips. Serve hot.

Cucumber Recipe

Cucumbers are so versatile, I personally like to mix mayonnaise and vinegar with a bit of dill in a mason jar. Put the top on and shake it up to mix, then add sliced cucumbers. My dad taught me how to make this when I was a little girl and can't recall ever making it any differently.

First dish is new to me but i also mix cucumber with mayonnaise and prefer it in salad all the time. Cucumber is very good for your skin.
