CSA Share: July 16

Royal Burgundy beans taste just like green beans, but they're much more visually dramatic. Photo by Satrina0.

A new crop showed up at Added Value last week: The farm’s summer youth program participants. The crew of 10 will be working on the farm Wednesdays and Fridays, learning about farm work, food justice and community development. Want to work alongside them? Come by the farm on any Friday between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. and help out with the weekly CSA harvest.

This week’s harvest was a busy one: Kristen and crew culled 80 pounds of beans yesterday, which we’ll get to enjoy in this week’s share. There’s yellow wax, royal burgundy, and two types of green beans. “They all taste very similar, though when the Royal Burgundy ones are cooked or tossed with something acidic, they lose their bright purple color,” Kristen reports. “I use them to impress people with some pretty display and veggie dip.”
