Market Haul: August 3

the market haulIt probably comes as no surprise that here at the JBF offices, we like to talk about food—a lot. One of the topics we most often discuss is what we bought at the greenmarket or received in our weekly CSA box and what we’re planning on cooking with it. Sometimes even the most experienced cook needs a little inspiration, especially when faced with five pounds of rutabaga for the third week in a row. To bring that conversation to our readers, we’re launching a new series called Market Haul in which we’ll share a list of ingredients and the dishes we plan to make with them. We hope you’ll jump into the discussion with your own recipe ideas and ingredient challenges

The Haul: green beans, dill, Japanese eggplant, zucchini, yellow squash, cipollini onions, carrots, garlic, kohlrabi, Walla Walla onions, peaches, nectarines, blueberries
