Sorry I haven't jumped into this cookbook discussion sooner! We put
together a cookbook for our CSA last year, and the cookbook came in
installments: spring, summer, and fall/winter. We collected recipes from
CSA members as well as our own favorites. I think that the members liked
that the cookbook worked as a recipe swap. It's especially important to
include recipes for any "weird" produce provided by the CSA--strange
greens, tomatillos, celariac, parsnips, anything that's not common. If
this isn't done, folks can be filled with dread rather than excitment at
their share--"What am I going to do with THIS??" If there's any way to
have samples for people to try that's even better--my tomatillo salsa is
always a big hit.
The cookbook is 3-hole punched, so we can provide new recipes each year and
members can add the new recipes to their old cookbooks.
