CSA week 20: squash, green tomatoes

CSA week 20 2020 brings more big green tomatoes to be ripened on the counter, plus at least a quart of cherry tomatoes. This year has not been good for tomatoes. We started with a long cold spring and are ending with early frosts. There are a lot of ways to use green tomatoes, though: I’ve included a couple of recipes, but don’t forget the simple classics.

We also have green beans, lots of greens, and 2 kabocha squash. In Japan, they are called pumpkins, and they are used in lots of autumnal dishes. We’re looking forward to eating our first local kabocha. Their skins are very tough; here is a nice tutorial on cutting a kabocha on the site Just One Cookbook.
