Baby Tat Soi or Baby Kale

Grower: Blackberry Meadows or Nu Way Farm

Store:  Rinse and dry the leaves before refrigerating. Wrap them in a paper towel and store them in a plastic bag

Recipe: Beet & Pear Baby Kale Salad, Creamy Polenta with Braised Greens & Poached Eggs, Chopped Kale Power Salad with Lemon Tahini Dressing

 

Honeynut Squash

Grower: Clarion River Organics

Store: You’ll see best storage results when you stash squash in a cool, dry spot away from ripening fruits like apples and pears. Honeynuts can be stored for 6-12 weeks

Recipe: Roast Honeynut Squash with Rosemary & Gruyere, Honeynut Squash Polenta with Crispy Maple Kale, Stuffed Honeynut Squash with Feta, Spinach & Walnuts

Sweet Peppers

Grower: Weeping Willow Farm or 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: Creamy Tofu & Pepper Curry, Butternut Squash Chili, Vegan & GF Vegetable Fritters

Delicata Squash

Grower: River View Dairy

Store: You’ll see best storage results when you stash squash in a cool, dry spot away from ripening fruits like apples and pears. Delicata Squash can be stored for 6 weeks.

Recipe: Wild Rice, Lentil & Cranberry Stuffed Delicata, Spicy Roasted Squash with Feta & Herbs, Delicata Squash with Miso-Maple Butter

Red Cabbage

Grower: Blue Goose Farm

Store: Store in the refrigerator and keep it wrapped. 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.

Recipe: Sauteed Red Cabbage with Cranberries & Goat Cheese, Red Cabbage & Carrot Slaw, Lentil Stuffed Cabbage Rolls

Chevre

Grower: River View Dairy

Store: Chevre can be stored in your cheese drawer for 2-3 weeks.

Recipe: Balsamic Beet Salad with Argula, Chevre & Walnuts, Spaghetti Squash with Chevre & Lemon Thyme Dressing, Spinach & Goat Cheese Stuffed Portobellas

 

Arugula

Grower: Nu Way Farm

Store: Line a plastic storage container with paper towels, dump the greens in an even layer on top, and cover them with another layer of paper towels before locking down the lid. Leave some space so the greens aren’t jam packed.

Recipe:  Spinach & Arugula Lasagna Roll-Ups, Vegan & GF Pea Pesto Pasta with Sun-Dried Tomatoes & Arugula, Quinoa Salad with Chickpeas, Arugula, Feta & Almonds

Mutsu/Crispin Apples

Grower: Kistaco Farm

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: Apple Crumb Bars with Fresh Mutsu, Caramelized Apple Crepes, Crunchy Daikon & Mutsu Apple Salad

 

Kabocha Squash

Grower: Clarion River Organics

Store: You’ll see best storage results when you stash squash in a cool, dry spot away from ripening fruits like apples and pears. Kabocha Squash can be stored for 2-3 months.

Recipe: Kabocha Squash Soup with Fennel, Ginger & Spicy Coconut Cream, Kabocha No Nimono (Simmered Kabocha), Japanese Kabocha Curry

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.

Recipe: Provencale New Potatoes, Herb Roasted Potato & Arugula Salad, Roasted Fingerlings & Brussels Sprouts, Lemon Herb Fingerling Potato Salad

Celeriac

Grower: Clarion River Organics (OG)

Store: Celeriac or celery root stores well and for a long time if it is kept in a dark and cool space. Kept loosely wrapped in plastic in the fridge it will last up to several weeks, even longer if it was freshly harvested.

Recipe: Cauliflower & Celery Root Soup with Roasted Garlic, Celery Root Puree with Balsamic Roasted Beets, Apple & Celeriac Soup, Low-Carb Celeriac, Bacon & Parmesan Rosti

Onions

Grower: Blue Goose Farm

Store: Onions can last for several weeks (if not months) without compromising their taste or nutritional value. However, you must be sure to store them in a cool, dry, well-ventilated place. Once you cut an onion, wrap whatever portion you don’t use in plastic wrap, and put it in the refrigerator. It will keep about 4 days.

Recipe: Crispy Baked Onion Rings, French Onion Chicken, Baked Blooming Onion, Caramelized Onion Spaghetti Squash, Onion Upside-Down Cornbread

Parsley

Grower: Crighton Farm

Store: Store parsley in the refrigerator. Keep it covered and wash as you go.

Recipe: Chimichurri Sauce, Tabouleh, Green Goddess Mac & Cheese
