Your box this week contains:
- Garlic Scapes
- Curly Kale
- Purple onions
- Salad Mix
- Baby Squash
Basil is best kept like a bouquet- in water at room temperature. Parsley and Mint, too!
Escarole is a member of the chicory family- like frisee or endive- with a slightly bitter flavor. It is good raw or cooked. Max and I prefer it cooked with sausage and white beans. So good! Click here for a variety of recipes. Try garlic scapes instead of cloves!
Celery! We are so excited about growing celery this year. It's a tough one to grow actually- something I refer to as a "Goldilocks Plant"- likes it not too hot, not too cold, not too wet, not too dry, likes it just right. So we are giving you a taste of baby Celery. This can be juiced or used similarlly to big celery you normally see in the grocery store. Unlike most "baby" versions of vegetables- small celery boasts a stronger flavor than larger celery. The leaves are edible and are exceptionally pungent.
We hope yall are enjoying your shares each week!
Please remember to bring your box back each week so we can reuse them! Also, feel free to bring your own bag to fill if you don't want to mess with the box.
