The Mediteranian share
Favas and arugula are the highlight of this week's share. This is the only time we'll be giving out favas this year so enjoy them while they're here. If you haven't had them before I just pull the beans out of the pods and boil them in some salted water for about ten minutes. Then drain them and cool under cold water. You can toss them in salads, add to pasta, or just eat them plain. Some people pull the outer skin off before eating but I never bother. Also in the share this week is a single radish from a late planting that didn't do too well with the heat and lots of lettuce due to last week's hot spell as well.
