Shallots

Stripetti Squash

Grower: Blue Goose Farm

Store:Keep it wrapped. Wrapping cabbage in plastic and storing it in the crisper section of your refrigerator limits its exposure to air flow, and thus reduces respiration and slows down spoilage. Just as importantly, plastic wrap keeps external moisture out, preventing mold and rot, while helping the cabbage to maintain its internal (cellular) moisture—without which, the cabbage leaves lose their firmness and begin to wilt.

Recipe: Roasted Red Cabbage, Apple, Kale, and Red Cabbage Slaw, Grilled Cheese and Red Cabbage Sandwiches 

 

Celeriac

Grower: Blue Goose Farm

Storage: Store celeriac in the salad drawer of your refrigerator. **Celeriac discolors quickly, but after chopping to size you can immerse it in a bowl of water with a squeeze of lemon juice or a splash of white wine vinegar**

Recipe: Garlic and Herb Celeriac Fries, Celeriac Mash, Maple Bacon Roasted Apples and Celeriac

 

Baby Carrots

Grower:Clarion River Organics (Daniel Lengacher Farm)**

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

Recipe: Easy Ranch Baby Carrots, Garlic and Butter Roasted Carrots, Roasted Carrot Hummus

 

Red Poblano Peppers/Krimzon Lee Peppers

Grower:Clarion River Organics (Hidden Valley Farm)**/Blue Goose Farm

Store: Place fresh peppers in a brown paper bag in the crisper section of the refrigerator. Peppers will store well for up to a week.

Krimzon Lee Peppers are a thick-fleshed, paprika-type pepper with moderate pungency. Sweet and spicy thick flesh is choice for roasting, frying, grilling, salsa, and adventurous salads.

Empire apples are tasty sweet apples, and are great for cooking with too!

Chioggia Beets

Grower: Clarion River Organics (Daniel Miller Farm)

Store: Store beets without their tops loose in an unsealed plastic bag in the fridge. Kept from moisture, they will last for weeks up to a couple of months. If the greens were attached, wrap them loosely in damp paper towel and keep in the crisper; the greens will last for about half a week.

Recipe: Raw Beet and Apple Salad, Roasted Chioggia Beets, Pink Beet Chips

 

Anaheim Peppers

Grower:Clarion River Organics (Matthew Schwartz 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.

Recipes: Roasted Anaheim Pepper SalsaStuffed Anaheim Peppers with Creamy Cilantro Tahini SauceAnaheim Chicken Tortilla Soup

 

 

Garlic

Grower: Blue Goose Farm

Store: Store in a cool, dark, well-ventilated area. Will keep this way for several months, but once you remove cloves from a bulb the garlic’s lifetime decreases more quickly. 

Recipe: Caramelized Onion Roasted Garlic Bisque, Easy Garlic Butter Roasted Mushrooms, Garlic Parmesan Puffs
