|Aunt Ruby's German Green Tomato|
With the abundance of potatoes coming your way, here's a great Facebook post from 'Sharing Recipes' (well worth following for canning/cooking info) for homemade potato chips. These are the classic fried chips, all you need is a big stock pot, potatoes, vegetable oil and salt. If you're cutting down on frying, here's a recipe for baked potato chips, which is also excellent for winter squash chips, as well. And you will get winter squash, yes you will! We've picked a very special potato for everybody today: Pink Fir Apple. These is a rather rare potato, in the fingerling family, with a waxy, smooth texture and great flavor. It gets its name because of its habit of growing little apple-like 'knobs' off larger potatoes. Very tasty, even if it's not that pretty!
Amanda and Ed kicked in today with the gorgeous onions for everybody, the corn for all the shares and a lovely pick of cauliflower - but just enough for the Full Shares today! Their stuff is looking sooo good! Many thanks to Amanda and Ed!
So, for the FULL SHARES: 3 lbs. Pink Fir Apple potato, 2 lbs. Roko Red potatoes, 1 lb. of either Brandywine or Aunt Ruby's tomato, 1 lb. slicer tomato, 1 lb. Black Plum tomato, 3 bags of beans, white and red onions, cauliflower, zucchini, Italian Largo and papaya pear summer squash, cucumbers, Hungarian Hot peppers, corn, carrots, beets, Swiss chard and basil.
For the PART SHARES: 2 lbs. Pink Fir Apple potato, 1 lb. either Brandywine or Aunt Ruby's heirloom tomato, 1 lb. slicer tomato, white and red onions, ground cherries, zucchini and papaya pear summer squash, corn, Hungarian Hot peppers, carrots, chard, 2 bags of beans, cucumbers, beets and basil.
