Grower: Weeping River
Store: Maple syrup can store indefinitely until opened but should be refrigerated once opened. Once opened, stored in the refrigerator, maple syrup can last at the minimum one year.
Grower: Clarion River Organics (Daniel Miller Farm)**
Store: If left in the husk, ground cherries can store well in the refrigerator for over a week. And can be stored in their husks for up to three months if placed in a cool place in a mesh bag. Can also de-husk, flash freeze and store in a bag in the freezer.
White Acorn Squash (Mashed Potato Squash)
Grower: Gid’s Produce
Store: Store squash in a cool, well-ventilated area for up to three months. Wrap cut pieces in plastic and refrigerate for up to five days.
Grower: Blue Goose Farm
Storage: Whole dry bulb onions should be kept in a cool, dry, dark place with plenty of air movement. Do not store onions in plastic! Lack of ventilation will reduce their storage life. Refrigeration is only necessary when trying to extend the shelf life of sweet or mild onion varieties with high water content, but be sure to use a low humidity setting, they must be kept dry.
Stayman Winesap Apples
Grower: Kistaco Farm
Store: Refrigerate apples in the crisper in a plastic bag with holes in it. Use up old or damaged apples and store apples separately as the ethylene gas they produce can help speed up the decay process of other fruits and vegetables.
Grower: Gid’s Produce
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.
Grower: Clarion River Organics (Hidden Valley Farm)**
Store: Keep green tomatoes in a cool, dark place but don’t refrigerate them. Use within two weeks. To ripen, place tomatoes in a box in a single layer with a layer of newspaper on top, and then another layer of tomatoes and leave until ripe.
Green and Lacinato Kale
Grower: Clarion River Organics (Hidden Valley Farm)** and Kistaco Farm
Store: Wrap the bunch in a paper towel and store in a plastic bag in the refrigerator for 7-10 days. Or you can blanch and freeze the kale leaves for future use.
