Oh wow! There’s not only plenty of basil in this week’s share of the vegetables from Camel Community Supported Agriculture but also some chocolate cherry tomatoes. Each of the standard veg boxes has a large Pink Caspian beef tomato - not Siberian (!) as I suggested earlier - as well.
So, if you haven’t made last week’s Recipe No 9 – Grilled courgette, tomato and bean salad in basil sauce, why not give it a try? Or have a go at making Nigel Slater’s Courgette, tomato and ricotta bake.
The small boxes contain: -
*potatoes (Camel CSA)
*onions (Camel CSA)
broccoli (Celtic Produce, Bodmin)
*celery (Mark Norman)
plums (a gift from Mark’s Dad)
*basil (Jeremy Brown)
*small salad bag (Jane Mellowship)
Standard boxes contain all the above, except:-
*large salad bag (Jane)
*beetroot (Camel CSA)
* = grown to organic principles
The broccoli (calabrese) comes from the Bodmin wholesaler Celtic Produce and was grown on a farm at St Merryn, near Padstow. It is not organically produced.
