This week, we got a small-but-mighty surprise in our C.S.A. share. 

This week, our C.S.A. from Local Roots included parsley, two green peppers, a couple tomatoes, a couple nectarines, some knobby carrots, calico potatoes, and a mysterious little box that looked like it came from the Whole Foods salad bar.

What was hiding inside???????

A piece of tar (is it Christmas yet)? A burnt marshmallow? A fossilized "present" from Erin and Derek's dog Brimley

Underneath the shreds of straws was something even better...

...a black truffle!

After we took turns admiring the truffle and cradling it in our hands, Kenzi placed it—carefully—in a plastic container with eggs; this is supposed to infuse the eggs with truffle flavor (we'll let you know how it works on Friday).

What else should we do with our truffle? Bonus points if it includes the other vegetables, too!
