For the past 3 years, Rachel and I have bought a share of Borski Farms. It’s a Community Supported Agriculture program where you get a weekly share of produce in the summer from a local farm. The food is fresh, delicious and only $220 for a weekly share from late June to early October.
There is everything from salad greens, cooking greans, peas, beets, garlic, summer squash, cherries, apricots, tomatoes, onions, and more. Each week you do not know what you are going to get until you pick it up. It’s quite exciting and always fun to figure out some recipes based on what you received.
Yesterday was our first pick up for the summer. It included english peas, mixed lettuce greens, spinach, bing cherries, and Anasazi beans. I have already been munching on it and it’s very delicious.
Each week I will post the recipes I made from that week’s share. It will be exciting. Since I still have the bag of Anasazi beans that we received last year, that may need to be my first post. Here is a recipe for the beans.
Refried Anasazi Beans
(from the kitchen of Joyce Waller)
1 pound dried Anasazi Beans®
6 slices of bacon, chopped
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1/4 cup finely chopped green pepper
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 teaspoon chili powder
Add 6 cups fresh water and cook beans 1.5 hours or until tender at a gentle boil. Drain beans, save liquid. Saute onion, green pepper, garlic and bacon. Mash beans together with sauteed mixture, adding liquid a little at a time, until bean mixture is smooth.
