Apple Butter

Grower: Kistaco Farm

Store:  Store apple cider in refrigerator for up to two weeks.

Recipe: Baked Apple Cider Donuts, Apple Cider Waffles

 

 

 

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

 

 

 

Broccoli Microgreens

Grower: Harmony Grove Farm

Store: Keep microgreens between damp paper towels, and make sure they are cold and covered in a resealable bag or container. Wrapped this way, they’ll last in the fridge for about a week

Gold Potatoes/French Fingerling 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: Crispy Oven Roasted Potatoes, Scalloped Potatoes, French Potato Salad

 

 

 

 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

 

 

 

Baby Leaf Swiss Chard

Grower: Tuscarora Organics Cooperative

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. Place in refrigerator where it will keep fresh for up to 5 days.

Recipe: Baby Swiss Chard with Bacon, Pine Nut, and Raisins, Roasted Butternut squash and Swiss Chard, Pasta with Swiss Chard

 

 

 

Flat Parsley

Grower: Tuscarora Organics Cooperative

Store: Click here to read about the best way to store parsley!

Recipe: 5 Minute Magic Green Sauce, Lemon Parsley Linguini, Parsley Pesto

 

 

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
