It could not have been a more beautiful day on Sunday when our CSA congregated to celebrate the harvest. It was a great time. One thing that we enjoy about our farmstead is the lay of the land. It is a nice setting for gatherings and we look forward to the dinner at the farm being an annual event.
For our part of the potluck I made a vegetable stew. A combination of onions, carrots, peppers, hot peppers, potatoes, tomatoes, and garlic. All the ingredients were cleaned and chopped. The first four ingredients were sautéed in olive oil until soft. Next the potatoes were added, followed by the tomatoes and garlic. Tomato sauce, salt, pepper, marjoram and oregano rounded out the ingredients.
The stew was brought to a boil and then simmered for an hour, or until carrots are tender. The stew is done then, but you can thicken it by pureeing a portion and adding it back.
Tell us what you brought on our CSA Facebook page. I know someone was looking for seconds on the coleslaw, and the candied jalapenos were a unique treat.
