Wow! What a wonderful selection of heirloom vegetables! Many are not available in supermarkets and have not been seen by many members!

Starting with the Rosa Blanca Eggplant and sweet looking eggplant with a mild flavor, and the wonderful variety of heirloom tomatoes and zucchini and the fascinating Star of David Okra originating from Israel, and gets its name from the shape that appears when it is sliced. Try it sautéed in oil or dredged in flour and fried and served over rice for a special accent on your dinner.

Although delicate, heirloom tomatoes make delicious fresh dishes such as salsa or fresh tomato juice ( yum!) Or pureed into soup or sauce. Enjoy!

Thanks to all our volunteers who helped this week!
