NYC CSA Challenge #5- Squash pudding, carrot tops and teensy tiny potatoes

Sarah McC | Jul 22, 200606:32 PM     3

I have to wonder if our CSA's farmer is truly suffering in this crazy weather. He's already described the problems created by the massive flooding. Radishes soaking up the water and bursting. Beetles on the potato plants, tractors stuck in mud.

'Foiegras' posted a recommendation for making squash pudding (we have tons of yellow squash this week), but no recipe. I just bought some local eggs, and I'm ready to go. Anyone have a good recipe?

Also, what can I do with carrot tops, besides using them for stock?

Finally, I have 1 1/2 lbs. of the tiniest potatoes you have ever seen- mostly marble-sized. Thinking I might gently cook them and toss them with pesto, for a pretty display.
Potatoes are easy to cook with, but I feel an additional challenge with presentation, as they are so precious.
