my very first "gemüsekiste"


perfect! now i don't have to carry my vitamins home anymore, the'll be delivered right to my front door! as i found out last week there's a farmer near linz who offeres various boxes of veggies, fruits, and you can even get bread and other bio-products from other local farmers! i ordered over the internet and i am quite content with how fast my order was processed and how very obliging they handled my calls and mails.

my first treasure chest is called "die bunte" (the colorful) and contains salad, strawberries, carrots, peaches, tomatos (oh damn, i forgot to mention that i don't like tomatos!!), lemons, zucchinis and onions. great! i am so looking forward to cooking dinner today!


i was cooking the tomatos today, imagine that! i was so excited (and so hungry) that i completely forgot to take a picture and post it here :) i don't acutally have a recipe, but i made an italian-style sauce for my pasta. i was blanching the tomatos, then i peeled and diced them. i also used the delicious spring onions and did sauté them before adding the tomatos. i added some more basil and a little salt and threw in some mozzarella. this sauce was incredibly easy and quick and it tasted like heaven! and finally i can make use of unloved tomatos! i never ever would buy tomatos on purpose, but now i have a good recipe and i might hit the tomato display in the veggie section of my supermarket every once in a while ... oh wait, i don't have to! i can just wait for them to arrive on my doorstep :)

Oh my gosh! You are so lucky to have this! I am so jealous. Hope you had fun cooking dinner!

I've just started ordering a farm box as well, and I love it. It's like getting a produce present each week.

So sorry you don't like tomatoes. I'd be happy to take them off your hands:-)

Hallo Gerda, ich muß auch hier in Wien so eine Quelle ausfindig machen ! Allerdings gehe ich nur zu gerne auf den Naschmarkt.. Trotzdem, so eine Überraschungskiste ist immer eine kochtechnische Herausforderung ;-) Liebe Grüße die Donau aufwärts, angelika
