  • Winter staples in Camel CSA’s weekly vegetable boxes

    Posted on November 18th, 2017 charlotte No comments

    We’ve reached that time of year when some weeks a higher proportion of the veg in our weekly boxes is coming from other local growers in north Cornwall.

    We do have winter salad leaves and veg in our polytunnels as well as root veg and brassicas outside. But we can’t harvest them every Friday because growth slows down as temperatures drop and light levels fade.

    So we’re seeing the welcome return of winter staples like Jerusalem artichokes and cauliflower. If you’re stuck for ideas how to prepare and cook these thoroughly British veg, look for inspiration on the recipes page on our website.
