Box Contents May 28, 2008

This week's box contains:
  • Strawberries
  • Avocados
  • Mixed Lettuce
  • Cilantro
  • Cauliflower
  • Mei Quin Choy (baby bok choy)
  • Scallions
  • Chard
I swapped the mixed lettuce for a second bunch of cilantro, which I'll turn into Cilantro Mint Chutney. For those who are not cilantro fans, this is a good option as the other ingredients balance out the strong cilantro flavor nicely. It freezes well too...

Cilantro Mint Chutney
Makes 1 cup

4c loosely packed cilantro leaves
1/5c mint leaves
2t minced, peeled gingerroot
1t minced garlic
3 - 4 chopped serrano chilies
1t cumin seeds
2t granulated sugar
1/5t salt
1/3c lime juice, or more to taste
Combine all ingredients in a blender, adding water as necessary to achieve a smooth paste. Chutney can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks or frozen for several months.

Today's a special day -- it is my oldest beagle Miller's 12th birthday, pictured here with me a few months ago.
