What to do with green peppers?

13 Sep

Dear Wonderful CSA Members,

Here is a gentle reminder about the Trade Basket… If you would like to take something from the trade basket, then you must put something into it. For example, if you want to trade your tomatoes for corn, then please weigh your tomatoes, put them in a plastic bag, and put them in the trade basket. Then take the corn. Thanks for your understanding.

By the way, if you arrived at CSA last week and we had run out of an item, please let me know. We had a small window on Thursday when we had run out of avocados, but I hope that did not affect too many people. If it did, please let me know when you see me on Tuesday or Thursday.

Sneak peek for September 14th:

Small share: Tomatoes (1#), Peppers (1#), Green Beans (.5#), Yellow Onion, Cilantro or Basil, Cucumbers (1#), Corn (2 ears) or Carrots, and Squash (1#).

Green Chili Stew

Chili Rellenos. This recipe calls for Anaheim peppers, but I would use Poblanos.

Corn Chowder with Chilies (from Joy of Cooking)

Heat in a soup pot, over medium low heat, until butter is melted:

1 Tablespoon unsalted  butter
1 Tablespoon  vegetable oil

Add and cook 5-10 minutes:

1 medium onion, diced
1 medium poblano pepper, seeded and diced
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1/2 jalapeno pepper, seeded and diced

Stir in:

3 cups milk
2 cups of fresh corn kernals (about 2 or 3 ears)
1 teaspoon salt

Bring to a boil, reduce the heat, and gently simmer until the corn is tender, about 3 minutes. Stir in:

1 large ripe tomato, peeled seeded, and coarsely chopped,

Gently simmer for another 2 minutes to marry the flavors. With a slotted spoon, remove 1 1/2 cups solid from the soup and puree until smooth. Return to the soup. Stir in:

1 Tablespoon of fresh cilantro
