Austin 2017 Spring Farm Share/CSA – Week 8

We’re starting the turn from spring to summer this week, with tomatoes making their first appearance in some shares.  Most of the blackberries have been harvested but we’ll have enough again this week for the full size shares.

Here’s what’s expected in our Spring week 8 shares:

(Shares may vary slightly depending on field/garden conditions)

Half Share: Onions, Beans, Chard, Carrots, Rosemary, Basil, Edible flowers

Full Share: Onions, Beans, Chard, Carrots, Rosemary, Basil, Edible flowers, Dandelion greens, Tomatoes or squash, Beet greens, Cabbage, Blackberries


Rosemary Green Beans

1 pound fresh green beans, trimmed
1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
2 green onions, sliced (about 1/4 cup)
2 teaspoons chopped fresh rosemary
1 teaspoon olive oil
1/4 cup chopped pecans, toasted
2 teaspoons grated lemon rind
Garnish: fresh rosemary sprigs

How to Make It
Sprinkle green beans evenly with 1/4 tsp. salt, and place in a steamer basket over boiling water; cover and steam 10 minutes or until crisp-tender. Plunge green beans into ice water to stop the cooking process, and drain.
Sauté green onions and rosemary in hot oil in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat 2 to 3 minutes or until softened. Add green beans, pecans, lemon rind, and remaining 1/4 tsp. salt, stirring until thoroughly heated. Garnish, if desired, and serve immediately.
