Grower: Kistaco Farm/Penn’s Corner
Store: Refrigerate after opening, consume within a couple weeks of opening.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
Whole Wheat Bread Flour
Grower: Weatherbury Farm
Store: Store in a cool place.
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.
