Wildflower Honey

Grower: Bedillion Honey Farm

Store: Liquid honey needs to be stored in a cool dry area avoiding sunlight with an optimal temperature of 70-80 degrees Fahrenheit. It also should be kept it in a tightly lidded container as honey easily absorbs moisture. Over time, liquid honey will crystallize (also known as granulating). That is ok.

Scallion 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

Pea Shoots

Grower: Clarion River Organics

Store: Use your pea shoots quickly — within a day or two. Wrap them in a paper towel and place them in an open plastic bag in the refrigerator. When you’re ready to use them, gently wash and discard any large stems.

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.

Basil

Grower: Dutchboy Farm

Store: To keep basil fresh, trim the stems and place them in a glass or jar of water, just like cut flowers. Loosely cover it with a plastic bag and leave it on the counter. Although certain herbs, such as parsley and cilantro, can be stored this way in the fridge, basil does better at room temperature.

Braising Greens

Grower: Blue Goose Farm

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