Apple Butter

Grower: Kistaco Farm/Penn’s Corner

Store: Refrigerate after opening, consume within a couple weeks of opening.

Hydroponic Lettuce

Grower: Harmony Grove Farm

Store: Leave the heads intact and unwashed until you use them. Then, place them in the crisper drawer in your fridge with some paper towels.They’ll absorb any excess moisture, so your lettuce doesn’t spoil prematurely.  Lettuce bruises easily, so be careful not to shove other foods up against it. Using a storage container is better than a bag, which can end up squished against other items.

Recipe: Korean Ground Beef Lettuce Wraps, Italian Chopped Salad

 

 

 

Turnips

Grower: Clarion River Organics

Store: Refrigerate the roots unwashed in a plastic bag. They should keep for anywhere from 1 week to 2 weeks in the fridge, depending on your refrigerator. To freeze, wash, peel, slice and place in pot of water that just covers them.

Recipe: Roasted Turnips with Parmesan, Mashed Turnips with Bacon, Potato, Turnip and Mushroom Gratin

 

 

 

 

Red Potatoes

Grower: Clarion River Organics

Store: Store potatoes in a cool, well ventilated place. Colder temperatures lower than 50 degrees, such as in the refrigerator, cause a potato’s starch to convert to sugar, resulting in a sweet taste and discoloration when cooked.

Recipe: Parmesan Garlic Roasted Potatoes, Skillet Red Potatoes, Smashed Red Potatoes

 

 

 

 Yellow Sweet Onions

Grower: Blue Goose Farm

Store: Sweet onions have a shorter shelf life than common varieties due to a higher water and sugar content. Thus, it’s important to store them properly. Ideally, sweet onions should be stored in a cool, dark, dry location and spread out for optimum air circulation.  Stored properly, sweet onions should last in your pantry about ten days to two weeks

Recipe: Caramelized Onions, Sweet Onion and Herb Quiche

 

 

 

Maroon Carrots

Grower: Tuscarora Organics Cooperative

Store: Carrots can be stored in the refrigerator for up to a month if stored properly. Place carrots in a container with lid and cover completely in water. Keep container in the refrigerator, changing the water ever 4-5 days.

Recipe: Garlic Roasted Carrots, Purple Power Salad, Braised Carrots

 

 

Whole Wheat Bread Flour

Grower: Weatherbury Farm

Store: Store in a cool place.

Recipe: Whole Wheat Banana Bread, Honey Whole Wheat Bread, Whole Wheat Tortillas

 

 

Sage

Grower: Crighton Farm

Store: To store, simply wrap the sage leaves in paper towels and put them in a plastic bag in the refrigerator. Make sure to use the leaves within four to five days. Fresh leaves that are covered in olive oil can be stored for much longer in the refrigerator, about three weeks.

Recipe: Pumpkin Biscuits with Sage, Brown Butter Chicken with Crispy Sage, Garlic Sage Potato Wedges
