My CSA box brought no zucchini, but it did bring some mysteries.
The first was easily solved. I thought these lovely little oblongs were some sort of squash, but upon consulting the product list from the farm, and doing some Googling, and actually cutting one open, I discovered that they were in fact mini white cucumbers!
The second is still unsolved. It's some sort of bulb or something? I don't think it's a root as it's not terribly dirty and it has wilted leaves on it. So tell me, what is this thing?
While trying to figure that out, I needed to decide what to do with the mini cucumbers. I ended up incorporating them into my morning smoothies. They blend up splendidly and make for a light and easy to drink smoothie. The flavor is an eye-opener in the morning too.
