We also got some brussels sprouts last week. I roasted them last night. This week was supposed to be "all you can pick" brussels sprouts at the farm (free to members), but they canceled it due to an extreme aphid infestation. Which manifested itself in my broccoli today. Oh boy, it was bad. I soaked/ rinsed about 10x, then boiled to within an inch of its life, then skimmed off the aphids and rinsed again.
My neighbor gave me the tip to try vinegar in the water. I will next time.
This week's CSA had kale, lettuce, baby arugula, bag o greens, broccoli, radishes, cabbage, dried beans, and jarred marinara.
Sorry for the quickie, but I have a sick kid on my hands!
