Experiences with CSAs [Moved from Home Cooking Board]

blizzard854 | May 2, 2008 08:16 AM

I'm a budding chef at the moment... making recipes here and there whenever i have the chance... just trying to expand my knowledge of different foods and such having grown up most of my life just eating rice, beans and chicken...

I've been considering joining a local CSA (Park Slope CSA in Brooklyn, NY) or (Washington Square CSA in New York, NY) and was wondering if anyone on the board has been part of a CSA at one point or another, and what their experiences were.

Did you find yourself throwing out the vegetables too often? If so, how often were you cooking with them? If not, how often were you cooking that you were finishing up all the veggies?

One of my main concerns is not cooking often enough to finish up the vegetables... But i thought to myself, it is so much more inexpensive for me to get some veggies this way, then go to the local supermarket and pick them all up there separately. Along with that, i feel like random vegetables being thrown at me will help me expand my knowledge of different products, and learn new styles of cuisines... I can definitely see myself being disciplined enough to take the vegetables given to me and attempt to make an entire 3-4 course meal out of it every week and just trying to get all creative with what I am given to work with.
