I didn’t log-in to Abel&Cole early enough this week to tell them I didn’t want what was going in my veg box.
So, we have MORE CARROTS. Carrots come every week. We haven’t yet eaten them all in any given week. I am mostly grating them and eating them raw, either as plain grated carrot, or as coleslaw, or as a carrot salad with cheese, pine nuts and raisins. Coleslaw is dead easy to make by hand for just two – just pushing blocks of cabbage and carrot through a hand grater and adding commercial mayo. It would be more of a pain to make in larger numbers. Have a vague idea to try it with fennel instead of cabbage next time I have that in the box. An unfortunate side effect, however, is that the kitchen is a little bit spattered with renegade carrot shards.
We have BROAD BEANS which I don’t like at all.
And we have THE WRONG KIND OF MANGO. Not the lovely juicy bright orange ones that fall off the stone and are only available at certain times of year, but the rock hard green and red ones such as you see at a supermarket. The sort that never seems to ripen, and I have no idea what to do with. I don’t think you can even make hedgehogs with them!
