CSA Week #7 (2013)
lettuce mizuna cucumber zucchini yellow squash tomato green beans bell pepper shallots
Prepped and ready. The lettuce was washed, torn and vacuum sealed in a jar for salad. The green beans were tipped, tailed, blanched for 2:30, chilled and vacuum sealed. The tomato went into the 55°F chiller. The shallots will sit out for a week to dry out before going into the 55°F chiller. Everything else was washed and put in zip-lock bags for the refrigerator.
