Grower: Crighton Farm

tatsoiTatsoi

Grower:  Nu Way Farm

Store: Wrap the leaves in a damp paper towel, and store them in a plastic bag in the refrigerator for 3 to 5 days. Prepare fresh tatsoi by separating the leaves (if you have a whole head) and washing well

Use: Tatsoi is in the same family as spicy mustard greens like rapini and mizuna. It’s often used for salad or sandwich greens, but like most of these spicy mustards, is always great sauteed with garlic or wilted with pasta.

heirloom_tomatoHeirloom Tomatoes

Grower: Nu Way Farm or Weeping Willow Farm

Store: At room temperature on a plate not in plastic, keep out of sunlight.  Keep in mind that storing in a refrigerator can make tomatoes mealy and the skin dry. If you find that your tomatoes are not yet ripe, let them ripen on your counter top for a few days.

white lady turnipsWhite Lady Turnips

Grower: Blue Goose Farm

gala-applesGala Apples

Grower: Kistaco Farm

Store: Store as cold as possible. Keep them in the bottom drawer of the refrigerator. A perforated plastic bag works best, as it allows some of the moisture to escape while keeping the apples crisp.

bartlett_pearsYellow Bartlett Pears

Grower:  Dawson’s Farm

Store:  Pears will continue to ripen off the tree (indeed, they really have to ripen off the tree to avoid a woody texture). So if your pears are a little green and firm, just leave them at room temperature and they’ll finish up nicely. Then you can refrigerate them.
