I am a member of an organic Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) farm in Pennington, New Jersey. Every Sunday I get a bushel-size box of whatever is ready for harvest. I received the most delicious garlic I've ever tasted along with and super fresh zucchini. I came up with a great way to infuse the zucchini with a robust garlic and balsamic taste. —Joe Cherry, Metuchen, New Jersey
