*** OG = Certified Organic, CNG = Certified Naturally Grown


Red  Cabbage

Grower: Blue Goose Farm

Store:  Store in the refrigerator and keep it wrapped. Wrapping cabbage in plastic and storing it in the crisper section of your refrigerator limits its exposure to air flow, and thus reduces spoilage. Plastic wrap keeps external moisture out, preventing mold and rot, while helping the cabbage to maintain its internal moisture—without which, the cabbage leaves lose their firmness and begin to wilt.

Honeycrisp or Ginger Gold Apples

Grower: Kistaco Farm or Dawson’s Orchard

Store: Apples are one of the few fruits that really do benefit from being stored in the fridge as quickly as possible. Keep them in the crisper drawer in a plastic bag.

Recipe: Miso-Glazed Chicken Burgers with Apple-Cabbage Slaw, Gingered Sweet Potato & Apple Cobbler, Apple French Toast

Brussels Sprout Greens

Grower: Clarion River Organics

Store: Brussels sprout greens are stored and cooked in a similar way to kale or collard greens. Refrigerate in plastic bag; do not wash until ready to use.

Carrots

Grower: River View Dairy

Store: Remove carrot greens from the carrots and store in a bag in the crisper drawer of your refrigerator.

Recipe: Vegan Carrot Hot Dogs, Healthy Cinnamon Carrot Cookies, Classic Carrot Salad

Kabocha Squash

Grower: Clarion River Organics

Store: You’ll see best storage results when you stash squash in a cool, dry spot. These squash can keep for several weeks to months.

Chard

Grower: Nu Way Farm

Store: Do not wash Swiss chard before storing as the exposure to water encourages spoilage. Place chard in a plastic storage bag and wrap the bag tightly around the chard, squeezing out as much of the air from the bag as possible.

Recipe: Swiss Chard Rolls with Beef & Rice, Swiss Chard Gratin, Swiss Chard Slaw with Creamy Avocado Sauce

Cherry Belle Radishes

Grower: Nu Way Farm

Store: Store radishes in a plastic bag in the crisper of the refrigerator and they should keep for at least a week. If your radishes have leaves attached, it is best to remove them, as they tend to leach moisture from the root.

Recipe: Cabbage, Apple & Radish Slaw, Radish Leaf Pesto, Creamy Cucumber & Radish Salad

Beets

Grower: Nu Way Farm

Store: To keep the beets dry, store them and the leaves, unwashed, in separate plastic bags in the vegetable drawer

Recipe: Creamy Roasted Beet Hummus, Autumn Salad with Roasted Beets, Butternut & Brussels Sprouts, The Best Beet & Avocado Salad

 

sweetcarmenCarmen Peppers

Grower: Weeping Willow Farm

Store: Store unwashed (or washed and dried) peppers in the refrigerator in a loosely closed plastic bag. Moisture is a pepper’s enemy and hastens spoiling. For peak flavor and nutrition, use within a week.

Recipe: Easy Pepper Steak, Crockpot Sweet Chili Pineapple Chicken, How to Freeze Peppers, Pickled Sweet Peppers

Poblano Peppers

Grower: Crighton Farm

Store: Store unwashed (or washed and dried) peppers in the refrigerator in a loosely closed plastic bag. Moisture is a pepper’s enemy and hastens spoiling. For peak flavor and nutrition, use within a week.

Recipe: Slow Cooker Poblano & Honey Lime Chicken Tacos, Roasted Poblano, Sweet Corn & Potato Soup, Baked Mac & Cheese with Poblano Peppers

Butternut Squash

Grower: River View Dairy

Store: Do not refrigerate whole butternut squash; it will keep for a month or more in a cool, dark place. Peeled butternut squash should be stored tightly covered and refrigerated for up to five days.

Recipe: Mexican-inspired Stuffed Butternut, Creamy Butternut Alfredo Pasta, Butternut Squash Fritters

Red Potatoes

Grower: Weeping Willow Farm

Store: New potatoes can be stored at room temperature, but because they have not been cured, they won’t last as long as regular potatoes — several days instead of several weeks. When refrigerated, the starch will begin to convert to sugar, so if they’re chilled for very long they’ll taste sweet.
